*First of all, I woke up at 6:00 to pump, and my boobs made NOTHING-like seriously y'all, they made 15 CC's in ALL! I'm all crying and freaking out-how am I going to feed my kid? Husband is like, "Dude, call the doctor and shut it." The end.
*Emma and I go back to sleep until 9:00, when the phone rings. It's the GYM MANAGER. We chat for a bit, and I tell him everything about trainer X. He is not happy. He offers me a free training session with another trainer whenever I want. I figure I will do this to reevaluate my progress after using
*Emma has been fussy ALL.DAY.LONG. And, she hasn't had one freaking nap either.
*My laptop freaking died today! I am currently on husband's work laptop. Y'all, my laptop and I are thisclose. I've only had it for two years. It was a Dell. RIP. It is gone and dead-basically the screen crapped out. I schlepped myself, the computer, the kid, the sling, and about 293 other things to the Best Buy for Geek Squad assistance. They took one look and said, "The screen is crapped out-it will cost about 700$ to fix." I had already talked to husband earlier and he said to just do what I needed to do. So, I conferred with an associate and got myself a sweet HP Pavilion laptop with all kinds of good stuff. (LG, don't even tell me the evils of a PC-I am never going Mac :D) I am very happy with the purchase. Unfortch, I will have to pick it up tomorrow afternoon-Geek Squad has to back-up all of my crap from the old one and reload it onto the new one. Hello picasa albums, iTunes, millions of documents, etc. The ironic thing is, on my Christmas list was a Seagate external hard drive for back up. That will still be purchased for Christmas. I am sooo thankful that they can get everything off the old one, and that my hubby let me bust out the AmEx for this immediate purchase! I must have my laptop! We have an old desktop that I bought in 2000, but you can just IMAGINE what kind of speed that thing runs on. Before husband got home from work, I tried to load my WW points in for the day and it took over 30 minutes!
*Did I mention Emma didn't take ANY naps? And she didn't want me to put her down at all. Lovely.
*A lost Beagle has been harassing my fence/dogs/house all day. I finally went outside to check its collar-it has a green box thing on there-like a underground fence thingy. NO name or contacts. I left a bowl of food out for it. Constant barking from my dogs all day.
*The end of the craptastic day-I am about to pass out!
(I also fully expect some love for my hane day. Leave me some love!) :D
