The home has wifi access again and protection via a router. I have never had a router die on me so it took me a few days to accept. I was never so happy to have a smartphone ~ a true life jacket during the outage.
I was so sure I'd find prices as low as $40 on a 64 gb USB drive during this holiday. Traditionally retailers pull out all the stops to lure us in, but it didn't happen, of course. I got pretty close though, I found a Lexar 64 gb for $49 and can now consolidate an 8 gb and 16 gb on to the 64 gb. I love tech becoming physically smaller while memory expands!
Contemplating a position change that will mean Boo and I pass each other in the morning, have only dinner together and require I work weekends. Such a change will significantly increase my salary. I must decide if it's worth it.
How much longer until retirement? Can you both tough it out until then?
I always say "Family First" as your company will not be the ones at your sick or death bed. It is a though choice. You both could write down the pros and cons on paper then compare them. See if you both are looking at this from similar points of view. But don't forget top listen to your heart and gut. I myself passed on an opportunity that could have increased my salary and position but would have put a greater strain on my family. But I had to think hard and discuss it with my wife on several occasions. Was not easy, but it was the right decision for right now. Things may change later.
So far I've uninstalled HeyTell, Get Glue & Yahoo! Mail apps because they drained my Evo's battery. I'm pretty sure the G+ app is next. Anyway clicking an emailed alert/update takes me to the G+ WEBSITE where I need to manually login. I can easily check the G+ site for updates or to post thus preserving battery life.
Spent the day with my mom, she was in an exceptional mood (thank you, Lord), and I couldn't believe my ears when she told me Amy Winehouse had died. I felt profound sadness. She had talent but was so lost.
I checked Amazon for one item yesterday and that was a 64 GB USB Flash drive, which I found for $54.99. Believing Cyber Monday would herald more aggressive pricing I didn't buy it. Today the same item is priced at $69.99 - grrr!
Same thing with the Roku 2 XS normally priced $99.95 Amazon sold this item this morning for $89.99 - $10 is not a "good" deal that's enticing me to buy. Are you finding 'sale' prices to be anything but?
Just heard there's a large fire parallel to the Cajon Pass and affecting traffic to/from Vegas. Lots of folks heading to Lost Wages for the holiday and I don't envy them in this bumper to bumper traffic. Hopefully my friends bypassed the temporary shut down. I hope no one loses their property.
Hi everybody and thanks for the warm welcome! Robin, I have two male kittens left and they're fixed, so no adding to the population! They're returning to my mom's house next week along with mom. I'm hopeful that they'll remain together as a colony and protect mom who's partially deaf and gets picked on a lot.
