So it is Cyber Monday! I try my best to not go outside on Black Friday since everyone is crazy with a capital C, which makes Cyber Monday my big shopping day. I really have to find something to get my husband. I’m thinking about getting him one of the vox amplifiers since his guitar playing skills have increased. (Level Up!) I just don’t know if that is something he’d actually want. It is difficult to find a good present for him because he usually just buys what he wants. Suggestions?
It has been so cold in the morning that I am actually thinking of buying heated motorcycle gloves even though I don’t own a motorcycle. My steering wheel is freezing when I leave for work. I don’t tolerate the cold very well, unfortunately. My mom gives me hand warmers to put inside my gloves but they only work for so long. GO AWAY WINTER.
The cold is slowly creeping into the northeastern part of the United States. I am not a fan of cold weather. One of the ways I distract myself is to look at homes for sale louisville ky where it is a bit warmer. Though I don’t think I’d ever move there. I’d be too worried about tornadoes and floods that take over the midwest every year. If only there was someplace mostly safe from natural disasters yet still warm enough to keep me from freezing to death.
Ever since I got my super cool Sailor Mars wrist tattoo, I haven’t worn a watch. I used to own a really awesome leather cuff watch but it stopped working and I was too lazy to get it fixed. Now I don’t want to mess up my tattoo. But there are some pretty cool Movado bold brand watches on their website. It almost makes me want to wear a watch again. I think wearing a watch on my right wrist will be too awkward. At least I still have the clock on my cell phone!
One of the things I am in charge of at work is tracking vacation/personal time. This also means that I have to fix the sign in sheet when people forget to clock in or out. Sometimes I think we need biometric time clocks. Maybe people won’t forget to clock in or out if they have to do actually DO something. I don’t think I would personally like to use it. Then again, I don’t forget to clock in and out at the appropriate times.
Over the weekend, my husband bought Rocksmith, a game where you can plug in a real guitar to learn how to play. It is a pretty cool game. I was thinking about buying my husband a cordoba guitar case to store his guitar so it’s not just laying around the house. Not only is our house filled with stuff, it’s also not particularly good for the guitar. I’d hate for him to ruin something so lovely. And Christmas is coming up soon!
Our IT Department at work recently upgraded our antivirus program. It was done over the weekend so I only know about it because we received an email saying they were going to do it. I know it was done because it has slowed down my computer a bit. Now it takes forever for me to log on in the morning. I’m sure the endpoint security program works very well. It would just be nice if it didn’t make things slower.
There are a lot of animals in my house. (No, I’m not counting my husband and daughter!) Three dogs, a cat, a bird, two chinchillas, and a number of fish that don’t really count. As a result, my house is almost always a wreck. I could definitely use some deep carpet cleaning cary nc. There is probably a ton of grime trapped in my carpets. If only I had the space to actually clean them!
My daughter is involved in a ton of activities. I love that she is interested in so many different things. What I am not in love with is the aluminum bleachers that the spectators usually have to sit on. The hurt my back so badly. I wish they could come up with something better (that didn’t cost an arm and a leg) so the spectators can at least be slightly comfortable. I’m not asking for plush couches. Just something a little more ergonomical.
My father owns a lot of tools. Some are his and some he inherited from his father. He recently gave a bunch of his “doubles” to my husband. Unfortunately, we don’t have a lot of places to store tools so we’ve been browsing the reid tool catalog for some sort of tool chest thing. I hope we can find one soon. My house can’t take much more!
