High Fives -

It has been one heck of a week:
Friday - Phone dies. Have to purchase a new one. Haircut, not the best.
Saturday - Pick up phone. Pick up Thule bike rack for car. T-mobile to figure out some broken apps. Demolition Derby - Right on.
Sunday - Dinner for the masses. Clean up. Configure phone while watching movies.
Monday - S-Z phone numbers missing from phone. Attempt to send e-mail to those whose e-mail addresses I have, while installing updates. Computer crashes. Really crashes. Work out - intermittent sprints for 1 hour. Most running I've done in my entire life. Best Buy shopping. Purchase computer.
Tuesday - Attempt to work from laptop that doesn't have my school-related material housed on it. Back to Best Buy to pop a few files onto a USB drive. Maria to pre-birthday lunch (sister turned 50 on Thursday). Assemble all UVU Fall 2014 documents, write syllabus for 3 classes, send all material to copy center at UVU. Attempt to watch a Netflix movie on 10 month old TV. Can't. Call Netflix support. Fixed. I tell Scott I need a day-off, will take Wednesday off. Rain.
Wednesday - Work out-  can't run, rain. Meetings (virtual), waiting on new computer. Netflix not working. Call Netflix support, Costco warranty support, Vizio support. Trouble shoot for 3 hours. Determine it's the TV. Waiting on repair services. Weed yard and add lights to yard for David Lopez's wedding dinner on Friday night. Rain.
Thursday - Hair trim, pick up copies at UVU, sun, but not enough to swim with grandbabies one last time. Walk up Rock Canyon. Listen to Tempest talk about Indians and Star Wars. Pick up new computer. Lose all Microsoft Office files, including e-mails. Work for 2 hours with BB dude to reconfigure. Chaplain meeting - incredible visit with beautiful people. Buy groceries at 10pm.
FriSday - Work out - sprints, again. Work on setting up computer. Find all files except for Adobe Suite. Hurray. TV to be fixed on Wednesday. David's dinner here tonight. Sun is shining. Too cold to go swimming. What's with the August weather?

Now why am I high-fiving? I did this ALL without a Diet Pepsi - not a single one. Wahoo! Accomplished all of this without a single harsh word or loud voice between Scott and me (well, one, but an apology). And - we've had a guest with us (and his girlfriend and her friends during the day and evening). I am so proud of myself!

Off to sit down and read until 5pm, when preparations for David's dinner get under way.

I. can. do. hard. things. weeks. 


Spoke too soon - all day with online GeekSquad help. Finally dropped the computer off at 4:55pm. Wedding dinner was beautiful, began raining right before dessert. Computer ready tomorrow - promise!
