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?

The Monday after when you eat all the things…

Hello and greetings from Nokomis.  We came down Friday night and we’ve decided to stay until this evening.  I’m working on wrapping up a huge project and for some reason I get more done down here.

Hank packed up

Can we go already? I’m packed!

Did you see his tongue sticking out, I mean, how cute is that?

I went for a walk on Friday morning and as soon as I got around the corner a peacock started following me.  He twerked his way around me at least 5 times.  I finally yelled, ‘No, Mr. Peacock, I am not having sex with you.’  (That’s what it means when they twerk like that and fan their feathers out.)  I didn’t realize a neighbor was standing outside when I yelled it so that was embarrassing.

(I made the alt tag ‘twerking peacock’.  I wondered what kinds of hits I’ll get from that, lol.

We packed up on Friday afternoon and left Clearwater around 7ish.  MacGyver wanted to leave earlier I think but the Kid had mentioned that he sent something and it was being delivered on Friday so we I wanted to wait until it got there.

Y’all, I have the best kid in the World.  Not because he thinks of his mother on her birthday and Mother’s day but because he’s kind, smart, successful and honest.  Every day is Mother’s day because he makes me so proud.  We talk at least 5 or 6 times a week and even though he is miles away, we are very close.  I love that kid more than life itself.

And he does send the best presents too, in case you’re wondering.

fitbit versa

He knows me so well.

Since I’m still taking some time off of running I decided to finish up the lawn down here in Nokomis.  I finished mulching and weeding the entire yard, front and back and I built a grilling patio for MacGyver.  Okay, actually I got sick of tripping over the grill and the Traeger smoker which were placed randomly around the backyard.

I didn’t take a picture of the patio because it isn’t quite the look I have in mind so I need to add some additional features and then I”ll show you guys.

On Mother’s day MacGyver and I went to dinner with his Mom and Dad.  Before we left I noticed my shoes were a bit worn so I threw them out and put on a different pair.  Somehow while we were at dinner I managed to rip the entire side of my sandal out.

Yes,  I ruined two pairs of shoes in less than two hours!  Apparently, I need to bring some new shoes down here…or go shopping.  Which do you think I’ll do?

MacGyver and I have been really good about following this diet that we are on.  Except that instead of a diet, we’re calling it a lifestyle change because it’s geared towards autoimmune issues and we really want to keep our bodies as healthy as possible holistically.

I haven’t been running and I didn’t have any other workouts planned while we’re down here but I’m pretty sure the moving of pavers and all the lawn work count for something.  Actually, I’ve felt really healthy all week until this morning because at dinner, I ate all the things.

ate all the things

Yep, Accurate!

Instead of pizza, I ate steak and potatoes and chocolate gelato and lots of champagne.  Oops.  Oh well, I’m back on track this morning.

I hope that all of you Mother’s had a wonderful Mother’s Day and I hope that everyone had a blessed weekend spending time with those you love.

How healthy is your diet?

Do you follow a special diet or just watch what you eat?

Which do you think is worse, sugar or fat?
