My fitbit is stuck in the customer support limbo mode, and yes, it’s a thing.

On the 9th of July I was sent a return label for my 2 month old fitbit Versa because the display stopped working.  Remember that date okay?

The good news is, I was getting the opportunity to work on filling in that fitbit white strap which had unfortunately become a permanent mark.  I figured I’d have at least a week to fill that in but surprise, apparently I’ve got all the time in the world.

Apparently, fitbit has to wait until they receive the old fitbit and then their warehouse has to notify them that they’ve received the item, and that takes up to five days.  I don’t understand this, is it because they have so many returns and if that’s the case, what’s up with that?

In my case they received the versa on the 20th and as of the 29th they still hadn’t gotten confirmation but in the interest of keeping their customers happy they told me they would go ahead and ship out a replacement.  How thoughtful.

Oh, and also even tough they promised overnight shipping on the return back to me, they conveniently forgot and shipped regular ground because why not make the girl wait another week?  What’s the date again, oh yeah, tomorrow is the last day of July.  What the hell fitbit?  I would’ve used an exclamation point but that key is broken on my computer but I was yelling that, just so you know.

hell no

I planned on reviewing the Versa this month but since I haven’t had it all month that will have to wait.  I can review customer service though and at this point in time, I can tell you that they Pretty. Much. Suck. Ass.

MacGyver and I were home this weekend because we had a lot of stuff to get done around here.  He left this morning to go to Nokomis because he has a big job down there but I am staying in Clearwater until the end of the week because I have a shit ton of work to do and a doctors appointment later in the week.

Oh and also, I’ve got like a bazillion animals to feed.

Forget the bird lady, Black Labs Matter.

Now, how does this camera thing work? Wait, shit, I wasn’t posing…

The food is free, go tell all your friends.

Tilly

Hey look, when pigs fly…..

Okay, that last one isn’t mine.  It’s my neighbors.  Her name is Tilly and after meeting her and petting her little nose, I want one.  And I could get one too because MacGyver is in Nokomis and he would never know.

Somehow over the weekend I convinced MacGyver to go shopping with me.  When he wasn’t relaxing in the children’s recliners, he helped me find the perfect gnome for our Nokomis house.

You can’t really tell in the picture but it’s teal blue y’all and he’s beautiful.

That’s it for me, I’ve got work that needs to be finished and pets that need to be fed.

How was your weekend?

Do you have a fitbit?  What kind and have you ever had problems with it?  How was customer service?

A little shopping, fishing, a popeye arm and Sneakers.

Good Morning.  I wanted to use an exclamation point to really make that statement loud but I’m working from my Dell and the number keys on the top bar don’t work so basically, no exclamation point.  Hell I can’t even use the at sign so when I enter an email address, I have to cut and paste one.  I live for challenges.

Anywho, we’re back in Clearwater.

Hank in a bag

I’m just making sure you don’t forget me mommy.

We would never forget you Hank, not ever.

Over the weekend we did some work on the house.  MacGyver and Danny ran new electric and water down to the dock so now we can clean the fish without having to pull a hose all the way down and MacGyver can hook up some dock lights.

After all the work on the house MacGyver took Danny fishing and I went to some garage sales.  I also might have spent a shit ton of money at WalMart but good Lord did they have an awesome sale on their patio furniture.

I go this tea cart at a garage sale for 5 bucks.

I didn’t have any wine bottles to put on it but I did buy some root beer for those occasional root beer floats that MacGyver and I love.

I also went got all new patio cushions and the best new patio table at WalMart’s patio sale.

The day was not without incident though.

As I was placing all of the cushions on the chairs a wasp flew out from under the bench by the fire pit.  I ducked out of the way as quickly as I could but the son of a bitch still managed to nail me on my wrist.  Fortunately I’m not allergic to wasps, only bees.  Unfortunately I still have bad reactions.

My skin swelled up so fast it broke the blood vessels under the skin.

It was so itchy and painful and it looked just like….

Let’s hope it goes down soon.

MacGyver didn’t want me to work in the yard or even do much housework on Sunday because he didn’t want me to use my arm so we went fishing instead.

Danny and Alma caught lots of fish.

And MacGyver and I caught a few too.

Summer is the best because we have all the fish we could ever hope to eat and I am so thankful for that.

And I have one last thing to tell you about.  Over the weekend we had a visitor in our garage.  He got in shortly after we arrived and was there for days.  No matter what we did he wouldn’t leave so eventually I started leaving food out for him.  I didn’t want him to die.

I guess he was very grateful for the food because now, we have a new member of the zoo.

Meet Sneakers

Sneakers is out baby rabbit.

Do you have any idea what it’s like to travel back and forth with two dogs, two birds and a rabbit?  It’s definitely interesting.

What did you do this weekend?

Puke fest, 2018

Y’all will have to forgive me.  I had a post planned for this morning and I’ve been really, really good about my schedule lately, but you know what they say about the best laid plans.

We woke up this morning and Hank was itching and it dawned on me that it was probably time for that magical monthly pill that I give them to keep the nasty fleas and ticks away.  So I went to the fridge to retrieve them only to realize that we paid for 6 for each of the dogs and they only gave us 3.  And that was 3 months ago. So the packets were empty.

There was no use in trying to get my money back or get the rest of the pills and besides we got them from the traveling vet so I can kiss that money goodbye.  Lesson learned and next time I’ll double check.  For now, the only solution was to call my vet and ask her to write a new prescription and go pick them up.

Only they don’t carry the brand my dogs have been taking.  At first I got really stressed until I realized that the pill they do carry last  90 glorious days.  Ninety.  That’s all summer long.  It’s like a gift from the Gods.

So I had to adjust my schedule and run to the vets office to pick up the pills.  Then I headed home and fed the dogs because they have to take them on a full stomach.  And you know what happened next right?  I mean, I should know because it happens anytime they start a new flea medicine, it’s one big dog puke party.

And keep in mind, I only have one pill for each dog.  One very expensive pill.  You bet your sweet ass I dug through the dog puke and gave it back to them.  Really what other choice did I have?    And it’s not like I haven’t done it before.  Although it never gets any easier.

So, I didn’t have a chance to work on that post that I had planned for you because I’m over here losing my damn mind.

Let’s get the weekend started already.  Right?
