My computer is driving me insane. It is so damn slow that I can literally click to open an email, go get a cup of coffee, come back and then maybe, just maybe, the email will have opened. But probably not.
And today of all days is flippin Cyber Monday. I need my computer! Not that I didn’t shop over the holiday weekend because I definitely did. Not so much on Friday though because MacGyver and I have a tradition and it happens a few hours after our Thanksgiving dinner.
It’s called TV after Turkey Thursday.
For the last three years MacGyver and I have battled the crazies at Walmart in order to score that coveted prize of a new TV. The first year we bought one, last year three, and this year we scored two Sharp 55” 4K smart TV’s.
No, we don’t actually need them but we just love a good bargain. Come to think of it though, I should have been looking for a new computer.
Over the weekend I managed to run 13.5 miles, 9 on Saturday and 4.5 on Sunday. I’m not gonna lie, those nine miles on Saturday were hard towards the end but I got it done. I didn’t stop once and afterwards, I did NOT get a migraine. Progress. I can feel the fitness level rising.
I also decorated over the weekend and I say over the weekend because it took a total of two full days and I’m still not finished. I may decide to keep it low key this year and stop at three trees, or not.
There is something so addicting about all those lights…and clearly, I need to visit an over-decorators anonymous meeting before I duplicate that madness.
I wasn’t able to decorate my backyard because I needed to finish trimming back some trees and I have been waiting on MacGyver to do that since, forever. But now I can do it myself because late Saturday he gave me one of my Christmas presents early.
The ban has been lifted and I am now using power tools again. I can’t wait to get out into the backyard and trim those trees. I also have a pretty good idea about what I can do with my computer if it doesn’t speed up soon!
How was your weekend? Did you have a fantastic Thanksgiving? Did you shop?
