I’ve been kind of MIA for the last 2 weeks, and I apologize. Too much going on and not enough time in the day, blah blah blah. Thanks to those of you who have kept visiting despite the lack of amazing content lately.
Jayden and I are going to see The Hunger Games today! We are both huge fans of the trilogy, so we can’t wait to find out how the first movie stacks up against the books. I’m hoping it’s as good as it looks – we don’t go to the movies very often (maybe 1-2 times a year), so I don’t want this one to be a waste of time and money!
Other Random Happenings
Yet another change to my comment system. I’ve really weighed out the pros and cons of using a third party comment system here on the blog. I changed from Disqus to Livefyre, but many of you still had trouble commenting. And while I love the third party systems, you guys come first. So I’m using the old school WordPress comments now – you put in your name and email address, and your comment appears. So if you’ve had trouble leaving a response before, try it out now! It’s ugly but it’s easy to use.
My cousin’s finances make me want to scream. Remember my cousin? The one who’s in basic training and left me to take care of his bills? Yeah, that’s going okay. Except for the fact that I keep getting new bills for crap I didn’t know about, so every time I think he’ll have some extra money, I have to use it. It’ll be straightened out before he comes home in June, though!
I survived the Apple Store. It was really hard not to fall under the spell of the shiny iDevices, but I managed to get my phone fixed without buying anything. The employee who worked on my phone was an older man, probably in his sixties. He told me that working for Apple was the best sales job he’s ever had “because I don’t really have to sell anything – people just come in and beg us to take their money!” Made me LOL.
I have a secret! I did something really cool this past week, but I’m not allowed to tell you about it yet. And it’s driving me insane not to be able to say anything, but I made a promise. So I’ll just tease you with a vague statement about something awesome coming in the next month or two. 😀
You guys rock! Thanks for all the supportive comments on Tuesday’s post. I’m really struggling with the amount of BS I can handle, but I’m trying to remember that not everyone is a troll. I don’t want things to get boring around here; I just have to make some decisions about how much I want to share and how to share it from now on. I’m considering an email list for people who want the more personal information – let me know what you think.
Anyway, that’s what’s going on with me…. What’s new with you? Anything fun happening this weekend?
