Hello again. I totally forget to schedule this post, so you're getting me at just after 6am. Weeeee.
And I'm on my new keyboard. It arrived yesterday. So far, so good. But I haven't tried writing on it yet. :fingers crossed: I take that back. I wrote about 100 words last night and then I got stuck. It totally wasn't the keyboard's fault.
My new crockpot arrived, too. And it's smaller. I guess I was wrong assuming my old crockpot was a 4 quart. Oops. Oh well, I guess I'll be making smaller vats of food than I used to. It's not like I need to make that much food for just the two of us.
If you're not on FB, you missed the saga of the new stick vacuum. If you are on FB and already saw this, you can skip this part. I bought a new stick vac at Wallyworld. Got it home and Hubs started to put it together for me. (Not cuz I couldn't, but because he's Hubs.) He was almost done when I walked by and looked at it. Something looked weird. Sure enough, the filter was filthy. With someone else's gunk and hair. Totally grossed me out. I took it back yesterday and exchanged it - checking the new one to make sure it was, in fact, new.
Yeah, lots of new stuff. Not that I'm made of money or anything, but when the crockpot cracked, I figured I could add a keyboard to the order (and get free shipping), cuz that other one has been annoying the shit out of me for months. And now the keys were rubbing off. Then I tried using my stick vac, but it was so old, the wheels were jammed and it was making lines on my hard floor. So, I squeezed a bit out of the budget and bought that, too. All three together cost me about $50.
While I was down at Wallyworld for the second time in two days, I took the opportunity to swing by St. Vinny's. I dropped off two boxes of books and came out with seven more books. Heh. If you're not familiar with St. Vinny's, it's St. Vincent de Paul thrift store. I used to frequent one when I was in college, and now I've found one not too far from where I do my shopping. It's awesome. They have tons of cool stuff, but I always gravitate right to the books. Natch.
Okay, I'm done for today. What's on your this n that for today?
