New toy! New toy!

So my PocketC.H.I.P. came in tonight, which was a pleasant surprise. I didn't get a lot of opportunity to play with it yet, but I did take some photos.

I am so looking forward to playing with it!

As he watched, the demon that lived within her forced her body into such contortions that he could hear parts of her arm dislocate in a slow, deliberate fashion. He struggled to keep from screaming, asked her (it?) instead:
"Doesn't that hurt?"
"Exquisitely, yes," was the quiet, almost orgasmic response.

Okay, this "moving house" shit is really starting to get me down, and this is supposed to be fun times!!! Argh!

We don't know if we've "officially" officially sold, the house we like right now is on a bit of a crazy street (with two younger kids, that's a serious concern), and we're not really seeing much else that lights our fire. Add to that time ticking away before school starts in less than two weeks... double-argh!

On the plus side, we do have a roof over our heads, and we may have a different one soon, so that's not too bad.

In case anyone was waiting with bated breath (at least anyone we didn't tell yet)... We bought a house!

Funny enough, it was the house we bailed on at first. With not a lot of other options available to us in a short time frame, we went back to our first best option, and I think we'll be really happy there. The kids aren't going to be far from school (the last bus ride was almost an hour each way), and I'll have better mass transit options as well. That and a big, rambling house makes for a perfect match for us! Huzzah, everyone!

I've been busy at work and at home. Also ran out of data on my phone. So... what did I miss?

Hey Android-lovin' friends...

I'm going to have to go ahead and reset my Lenovo tablet in order to get around an issue that keeps plaguing it, but I wanted to know: do I need to remove the SD card first? Or should I?

I've never seen anything to that effect, but I've also never (like, ever) reset to factory settings on a device. Actually, that's not true, but in those cases it was to return tablets (yes, twice), not to keep using them.

So if anyone is aware of the best practice in a case like this, please let me know. Kthxbye!

So as it turns out, I did actually physically remove the MicroSD card, but only after I had backed up my data to it, using a nice tool from Lenovo which was included on the tablet.

Now my tablet has been reset, so the death march is on to see if the same issue comes up again. Fingers crossed that it does not...

Help Me Choose...

I may have mentioned that I have a small amount of discretionary income that I can blow on "toys", and that has served me well in the past few months. I got a tablet, a BlueTooth game controller, a tablet case, and a few other odds and sods. It's not a king's ransom, but I've been able to scratch an itch that was previously driving me crazy.

That being said, I'm not starting to think about some "big ticket" items that might be worth picking up in the near to late future (as the sheckles roll in), so I'm turning to you, my G+ peeps, for advice and counsel.

Don't you dare let me down!!!

Take posession day

So our last night of sleep in this house (maybe, perhaps) was fitful, at best, for me. I tossed and turned, dreamt of what could go wrong at any turn, and my dreams were full of co-stars from my earlier life. Even there, I felt as though I was having difficulty, that signals were crossed, opportunities missed, and the fear of the unknown encroached on my rest.

In short, I'm some kinda tired this morning. But I have to have my wits about me to ensure every "i" is dotted and every "t" crossed, or I won't be getting my key this afternoon. If luck would help, I'd wish for it. Instead, I'll ask for patience and understanding to navigate the next few days without losing my mind.

Long story short, other than sitting on my lawn with my two cats for about 1.5 hours on the day we got the keys, it went off without so much as a hitch. We've still got lots to do in terms of setup and tidying, and my mother in law's basement could use our TLC to get rid of all our contents, but we've got time regardless. Now to buy a stove (house didn't come with one) as well as a few other odds and ends! Fun!!!

Not to jinx anything... but we might have just sold our house today! I'm shivering with an...ticipation!

Now to find another house to move into. That's kind of an important step, eh?

I know, it's not Caturday, but in my defense, we were really busy this weekend.
