RIP Achilles

Sadly, my poor little laptop bit the dust a couple nights ago. The fan (which always had issues anyway) stopped working. It was one of David’s old laptops, that he has had for probably five years or so. He names all of his computers and this one’s name was Achilles. I’m hoping to be able to replace it soon, but for now I am computer-less. David and I are at his brother’s house, so he is otherwise occupied. I managed to talk him into letting me use HIS beloved laptop, so I could do a little blogging.

I visited bestbuy.com today to see what they have to offer in the laptop area. I found a couple that I wouldn’t mind having. We’ll see…. The whole not having a computer thing is going to get old really fast. Yes, my cell phone has internet capabilities, but it’s pretty slow and doesn’t have the best battery life in the world.

Work has been kicking my butt. I kind of don’t understand why it has been so hard to get used to, but I have a few theories. First of all, I haven’t worked full time in a long time. Second of all, I’m working all different shifts so it’s harder to get used to than if I was working the same hours every day. Friday night I was there until 10:30 pm, Saturday night until 11:30 pm, and then had to be there at 10:30 am on Sunday. I worked all day until closing on Sunday, and then had to open at 9:00 the next day. Needless to say, I haven’t gotten a whole lot of sleep lately. The third reason I think I’ve been so tired, is that I stand (and walk around) the ENTIRE eight hours. I kind of don’t mind this, because it’s better for me than sitting all day long would be.

I’m also not really used to working retail. In the past, most of my jobs have been traditional office jobs where I worked Monday through Friday from eight to five, or whatever. I hate having to work on weekends, when no one in my life seems to have to. I missed out on Leavenworth and all kinds of other things. Then when it’s my days off, everyone else is working! It’s awful! I really feel like I need a little getaway. Even if it’s just to eastern Washington. I need a change of scenery and a chance to relax and not have a schedule I need to follow. I need to rest and recharge. That sounds incredibly cliche, but it is so true.

So there you have it. My life has definitely not been exciting lately, that’s for SURE! Hopefully that will change in the future.

1. What is your favorite decor item in your house?
I have a painting I really like. My mom got it for me for my birthday one year. It has a lot of golds and reds and has sort of a Tuscan feel.

2. What is your favorite hair product?
To be honest, I have a hard time finding products I really like. I tend to like Aussie products. I am still needing to find a shampoo and conditioner that I really like.

3. Are you a good dancer?
Nope. I’d rather sing!

4. You get some good news, who’s the first person you call?
David, of COURSE. 🙂

5. Would you rather take pictures, or be in pictures?
I LOVE taking pictures, so I am not in most pictures. However, I like to have some of myself.

6. What is your shoe style?
I have some boots I really like. For the most part, I wear flats. I have heels, but they are way too uncomfortable for retail.

7. How often do you eat out?
I usually eat out for lunch when I’m working. It doesn’t feel like eating out though, since it’s at the little coffee shop inside the store that I work in. David and I don’t go out to eat very often at all.

8. If someone has food in their teeth, do you tell them?
It depends on who they’re are.

9. Do you fold your underwear? 
Always. But then it always just turns into a big pile anyway….

10. Milk, dark, or white chocolate?
Definitely white. In fact, I make some awesome chocolate cookies with white chocolate chips….SO good.
