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 best diet ever….a colonoscopy

Good morning from Nokomis and guess what?  It’s that time of year.  Inspector Gadget and the family are here.  I haven’t taken any pictures yet but I’ll post some soon.

I did take a picture of a really cool pie bird that I got at an estate sale last Friday.

Also on Friday I had my long awaited visit with the gastroenterologist.  She went over my CT scan of last year and we talked about my diet and the recent problems I’ve been having and then she rocked my world.

“Start eating gluten again”, she said.

what

Wait what?

But, I thought I was supposed to avoid gluten at all costs so I was really confused.  And then I asked her if she thought the diagnosis was wrong and that I can eat gluten.  But no, my life is never that easy.

I am scheduled for a colonoscopy and endoscopy with tissue biopsies in mid-September and in order to get the proper diagnosis they need me to consume some gluten.  Some gluten, not all the gluten.

And because my day always gets better, she gave me the instructions for the prep.  Oh, the prep.  I mean seriously, if you’ve ever had a colonoscopy, then you understand completely.

It’s supposed to rain today so after a bit of work, we’re gonna do some shopping.  I’ll be back tomorrow with some pictures.  Of my family, in case you were wondering.

How was your weekend?

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….

THIS:

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?
