Those who know me well know I love a bargain! SO I'm surfing wanteds in cragslist looking for someone who wants to buy anything I have. I get to the last page and there's an ad titled "excersize equiptment" I'm thinking I know lots of people with that kind of stuff laying around! So I open the ad and they are getting rid of a total gym, not wanting more stuff...the ad was posted in the wrong catagory. I figure I'm wasting my time cause those things are expensive, but my son had asked for a weight set for his birthday, so I gave the people a call. They said it was like new and that if I'd come get it RIGHT NOW I could have it for FREE! They had been trying to unload it for over a month. I chanced it and drove out there. The thing was still in the box! When we got it home, it still had the packing zip ties on it! When Bobby saw it, he was sooo excited! He played with it until I made him come cool down. (it was hot yesterday and we were not running the AC) He tried to talk me into letting him have 2 workouts a day and to raise the incline. I think it will be great for him.

Lord, grant me the patience...but hurry!

I'm tired and grouchy and all things electronic hate me. We got internet again...the real stuff, not the dialup kind because it was cheeper to pay internet and get magic jack than it was to pay our phone bill. 35 a month for really fast internet plus 19.995 a year for the magic jack is cheeper than 40.00 a month phone bill. And yet, maybe its not worth it because although the magic jack is plug and play and easy to use, the routers are acting up and only allowing 1 comp online at a time lol Probably mad because they were not used for months.

The other electronic giving me fits is my favorite jump drive. It refuses to work with my desktop, so I'm doing all my work on my laptop...which is fine except I do not know how to use the hidden keypad. I need numbers, darn it!

Everytime I sit at my desk, I giggle. On the back of my chair is a t shirt that reads "speling bee winur" Mom got it for me & I love it. Instead of hanging it in my closet, I keep it on my chair so I see it all the time.
