Seven Quick Takes After A Long Weekend

I know this week was only four days long but I couldn’t be more ready for this weekend. As usual, I have stuff on my calendar because I like to ignore everyone’s advice to take it easy. Really though, it should be a pretty good weekend. And minus the registering, it should be stress free!

Last week my phone broke. The touch screen wouldn’t work which presents a problem when all of your buttons besides “send” and “end” are on the touch screen. So basically all I could do was answer calls or call the last person that called me. I didn’t like that very much. I went to Verizon to get it fixed. Their answer, as always, is to take the battery out. That wasn’t the problem. Apparently my phone doesn’t work when the protective case is on. Stephen thinks it has something to do with a part of the case touching the screen constantly. Anyways, it’s fixed.

Do any of you WordPressers know how to get my categories back? You know how they are along the right column when you are writing a draft? Well mine disappeared like a month ago. I don’t know what happened. Ten points if you can tell me a solution. Twenty points if you begin your statement with “What had happened was…” And thirty points if you know where that’s from.

One of my least favorite things in life is getting to the bottom of a tube of Chapstick. It falls back in the tube and the sides of the tube scratch my lips. But I also hate starting a new tube. It’s concave at the top so part of it always cracks off onto my lips. It’s gross and a waste of a dot of Chapstick. Yes I have lots of thoughts and feeling about Chapstick. No I don’t think it’s weird. Yes I use cherry flavored Chapstick exclusively. No I will not change my mind and your flavor isn’t better. Yes I know I have a problem. No I’m not being paid by Chapstick. (Although they should pay me.)

I’m not going to go into this in full detail because, frankly, I’m tired. And if you agree with me you’ll agree regardless of how many words I devote to this. That whole ump ruining the perfect game? I’m out-of-control happy that Bud Selig didn’t reverse the call. Yes it sucks. Yes I feel awful for both the pitcher and the ump. But this is baseball and human error is part of the game. If the call was going to be reversed it should have happened immediately. The end.

We need curtains in our living room. We have needed curtains in our living room for two and a half years. I think that I must believe the decorating fairies are going to come hang something while I’m at work. One of these days I’ll get around to it. (sigh)

We are this close to becoming a one car family. And by “this close” I mean that we will be a one car family just as soon as we figure out who to sell a clunker to and how to transfer the title. It’s a little scary but we can make it work. We carpool to work 4 days a week already, we’ll just have to adjust to make it work on that fifth day.

Because the Rooms To Go delivery process is such a PAIN IN THE TOOSHIE, it looks like we might be purchasing our recliner this evening so that it can be delivered with our dining room table. You know how most places will say, “We will be there on Saturday, sometime between noon and 3 pm”??? Well not this place. They’ll be here next Saturday… sometime between 7:00 am and 10:00 pm. Well thanks a lot. That really makes things easy for us. So anyways, we know we are going to eventually get the recliner and we’re thinking we would rather just go for it now than give up another ENTIRE Saturday waiting on delivery. Can you support our decision?

The end. Happy weekend!
