Aimzy, you are in my prayers times a million. <3
When I got home from work, I checked the answering machine. There was a message from Best Buy telling me that I’d qualified for a new laptop per the service plan I’d purchased. I rushed right back out the door and headed to Best Buy. I ended up getting a Gateway computer that is so much like my old one it’s scary, only this one is a Pentium 4 with a DVD burner and a 6-in-1 media reader. This one also has a much better screen. No complaints.
My old laptop will be trashed. It kind of sucks because there was some music on it that I couldn’t get off, but I’ll be okay. Most of the stuff on there was replaceable, and the most vitals things were burned to CD and transfered to my desktop computer already. Again, can’t complain too much. I have a brand new laptop that’s better than my old one. Dude, this one plays Sims 2 really well, YAY!
I’m slowly getting over being sick. I went back to work on Thursday and it really wasn’t bad at all. Thank God for people who take up the slack for me. All I really have to do is a buttload of filing.
My left ear feels like it’s completely stuffed with cotton. I’m not sure how to get rid of that. I’ve tried the holding my nose and blowing trick–no luck. Maybe I’ll just lie on it and hope whatever is in there will pop or something. I feel like I’m a million miles away because I can’t hear that well!
Bizzy, Kyle, and Craig came over tonight/last night. It was fun. Chris made pizza, Craig brought me Reese’s Pieces, and we watched Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Prince of Egypt. I wanted to watch some Food Network but was voted down, but Golden Girls was seriously considered by almost everyone. I also played The Sims–it had been a while. I start to get frustrated after a while, so I didn’t play for too long, not like I used to.
Overall, I’m feeling okay. I can’t believe Christmas is in eight days. I’m still not completely done shopping yet! There isn’t much more to do, and almost all of the gifts are wrapped. I still have to wrap my stepfather’s gifts and one of my sister’s needs a huge gift bag. Not sure when I’ll do that–I defintely don’t want to do it over the weekend. We’ll see, though.
