Why you wonder? Well because I purchased my Macbook Pro 3 years ago and the warranty will soon expire (9/3). It started giving me 'start up disk full' messages and I was constantly getting the 'wheel of death' (that is sometimes called the beach ball).
When I called Apple Support, they were GREAT (always are). They walked me through some steps then referred me to a local Apple warranty shop. Waa Laa!
I called, made an appointment and within 24 hours have a computer that feels like new. They doubled my RAM, upgraded my hard drive to the new "flash" or Solid State and I'm rolling. Seriously. My computer is soooo fast.
So, if you're like me and don't want to invest in a new computer but are having issues with your Apple product, check them out. Jesse, Scott and David will fix you right up!
Ok, so I listen to John Tesh and definitely entertain my family. He always has such an insight into all matters of life. Just last week, he said that if you chew your food 20 times before swallowing you will lose weight. Hmmm...
Once home (it was one of those nights where everyone ate something different) we sat down to eat. I tend to eat fast. Always have. Always will. Maybe it's because I am the one that usually cleans up. Maybe it's because I'm hyper. Maybe it's just because it's what I do. Anyway. At one point, Cierra asked me if I wasn't hungry because I was eating slow. So I dished. Of course they all cracked up because it doesn't really make sense to chew cereal 20 times, lol!
Anyway, yesterday he talked about this book. Basically it's about those people that MUST have their cell phone. They sleep with it. It's the first thing they pick up in the morning. They panic if they can't find. You can't carry on a conversation with them because they are never listening. Pretty much you have to compete with their iPhone and they just rarely lay it down.
Don't get me wrong, I do LOVE technology. I love my iPhone, iPad, Macbook. Without question. But, it's not my oxygen and I can survive without it for extended periods of time.
I am going to admit though that while it wouldn't be fair for me to accuse certain people (just like AA, they have to admit first), I do know of at least two people in my life that I feel have iDisorder. How about you?
You have to read some of the excerpts from this book. Click HERE
It probably should be. What I have to say is pretty uncommon for me.
I'm feeling overwhelmed.
Quiet. (but music does soothe the soul =)
Enough whining. I actually do have things to be thankful for. I woke up this morning. The sun was shining. I have food and shelter. And my biggest challenge today was finding a book bag for Cierra. And it was a challenge. Let's just say it took a village. Yep, one on eBay but $99. NOT.
Oh, and of course Chase.
It seems odd. For years they didn't carry book bags and now suddenly in their Freshman and Jr. year, they need book bags. Big book bags. But I was successful. At least for Chase. Cierra's is on back order until 10/28 so she will have to make do with this one -
Oh yeah. I can't forget trying to find tires. Reasonably priced.
Why? Because I have a slit in one of mine. 67,000 miles and they are dry rotting. Go figure.
I actually succeeded at that, too but pretty pricey and unexpected/unplanned.
Good news? Sure.
Chase will be playing ball for the high school -
and that makes us all happy.
So there ya have it. I hope your week is going better than mine. Happy Hump Day!
We LOVE Fair week but I honestly start wearing down by Friday. Work, home, and then back to our camp to check out the tractor/truck pull.
We have been so blessed with weather. Every evening has brought perfect temperatures and beautiful sunsets. A little 'over' fair food, I grabbed a pizza from Mena's on the way home and finally got to taste the FFA Alumni roasted corn!
OMG - it was wonderful!
And then BIG rigs -
Another late night but we are getting close to the end of the week. Rest and relaxation is on the horizon =)
