I need to learn not to touch stuff

I really need to learn not to touch stuff once I have fix it. About two and a half weeks ago I finally called about my hard drive making all kinds of noise and running very slow. I had just got the hard drive for Christmas this past December. I call Western Digital, it’s still under warranty. They sent me a new one and I had to send my old one back. I had already backed everything up. I finally got every thing replaced, installed and working.

I start reading about Ubuntu again. I really missed playing with it. I had it installed ages ago. I think even before I had my current computer build. I tied installing it and it totally messed up my new hard drive. It will no longer boot Windows nor Ubuntu from the install.

Currently I backed up all files on a external hard drive and trying to run Window’s Startup Repair in hopes it can fix my hard drive I just got from Western Digital. For some reason it turned my hard drive to a RAW state not a NTFS. Not sure what happen but whatever. I have learned my lesson. I just hope I don’t have to buy a new hard drive and this one will work. Otherwise I might be doing everything from the laptop until I get some extra money.

Right this moment I am saving every dime for next week when my Cammie will be here visiting for a whole week. We haven’t spent a whole week together since 2010. I need time with her more then my hard drive at this moment.

Evernote is love

I don’t know if I have said this before or not but I truly love Evernote. It has made my life so much easier for blogging, keeping all my recipes and keeping all my confirmations from online bill pay. I even have my friends linked to my recipes that way we can share food ideas. It keeps track of it all from my iPhone, iPad, computer and laptop. It handles it all. It’s worth the $5 a month for premium. I haven’t even come close to meeting my limit and I have copied over about 246 blog entires and still have many years to move over. I am a happy camper.

You know what I miss?

I use to be so awesome at this blogging thing and then I started working full time, school full time and a husband. WTF??

I miss the internet. I miss my web sites. . .most of all I miss designing for no reason. I really want to just sit down and code a site from start to finish just because. . . šŸ™ This makes me a sad hippo!

Also, it was my grandmother’s 73rd birthday today. I took her out for dinner and we went shopping all day. I really enjoy those days. šŸ™‚ My grandmother is an awesome women. And without her I wouldn’t be the person I am today. I am thankful everyday I have another day with her.

PS: Kyle got me a iPod touch 4th gen (Piggy is it’s name). I do love it! I like it way better than my iPhone, why because I can use it as an iPod not my life line.

On a better note

Things I got done to things that still need to be done are kind of out weighing themselves out and I go back to work tomorrow. :/ Today (Dec 15th, I haven’t been to bed yet, so it still counts as today) was my husband’s birthday so I spent it with him, and we had two days off together so I just wanted to be around him since he works a lot of days and I work nights. I miss him so much. It’s the little things I miss. Like tonight, just falling a sleep in his lap. It was amazingly nice.

Things that got done on my past list:

  • Clean Office
  • Blog / schedĀ­uled entries
  • VacĀ­uum
  • Make our bed Needs to be done all over again. lol
  • Wash and put way all clothes
  • Pick up livĀ­ing room
  • Start dinĀ­ner

Bad thing about that list is, that most of it needs to be done on a daily and I just don’t have enough time in the day to do it.

On a better note, Kyle and I get paid on the same night at the same time every two weeks. Makes paying bills a whole lot easier. I am pissed because I have paid everything that needs it and I was going to finally buy my second monitor for my computer. (I want duel screens to make working a little easier. My job has them and you never notice how much of a help it is when you are trying to multitask) but Wal-Mart won’t let me finish my damn order. Every time I try to login, it just shows the loading screen and then it won’t go to my cart and keeps repeating the cycle and then it won’t load a style sheet. Just really random shit. . . .Finally after 15 minutes of it doing that my order is placed. I know I shouldn’t have spent the money but I am getting paid for a web project that I’m working on and also for dog/house sitting for a friend while her and her family are gone for the holidays. Between those two extra “jobs” I can get it and have extra money left over.

Well, I guess since I have paid the bills and ordered myself something, it is time to head to bed. Kyle has to be up for work at 4am and I want to sleep next to him for a couple of hours before he heads out.

Wanted to do so much

I wanted to do so much tonight but I don’t see it getting done. I have this long list of things I am dying to get done around the house.

  • Clean Office
  • Blog / scheduled entries
  • Vacuum
  • Make our bed
  • Wash and put way all clothes
  • Pick up living room
  • Start dinner

A few of these I can do while doing others. For say I can wash clothes while I start dinner. I can make the bed, then put clothes a way while dinner is finishing. See, I can double up. I know I won’t get it all done but I will get started. And by doing so I have to get off my wonderful computer and do it. . .but first I must put my iPod playlist on! Music makes everything okay!
