June 25 . . . A Thursday
Being up so late, I could not get rolling in the morning. I managed to blog the day before, read emails, and re upload failed uploads from the night before.
Hubby was able to paint the carport ceiling by noon. It was on our to-do as in bad need of a white-wash. Tommorrow he'll do the soffit under the front porch. For now, he is to do for his job in the afternoon nothing but relaxing. He is on vacation, so he should get some relaxing time in. He also needs to recuperate his back.
Today is my turn on phones at lunch time. I did get some walking in. I really want to get my Fitbit steps in before 9 pm so I'm not forcing myself to get up out of the chair and run in place.
We made fresh squeezed lemonade and fresh tea. I combined the two for my afternoon drink. I think they call this a "Tom Collins" except mine has no alcohol.
Hubby and I debated what to do for the evening. We could have a "paper party" or go to the pool and relax or get the wading pool out and relax in the backyard. We decided to start with a "paper party" for a half hour and then try to go to the pool. This is my huge pile of papers to go through. However once we got started, we found it hard to quit. I am very happy to have made great progress on paperwork. We still have some more to do, but it is nice to break up the work.
It was 8 o'clock when we got home and we still had not eaten supper. So hubby went to Dairy Queen to get some blizzards for dinner since I had a coupon for one for free. Now that we are old, if I do we cannot eat dinner and dessert. That's sad.
I had not picked up my iPad since my laptop crashed. When I did so I realized it said it was 100% full. It appeared that it was syncing my music again. Do not understand why the settings always change and I don't do it.
So after we watched TV, I plugged in the laptop and tried to sync it to the computer only to get this frustrating error. I googled the error and it indicated to restart both machines. I did so to no avail. I researched some more and found a programdata file to delete called lockdown. Of course, I had to restart everything once again. Finally after much time, I was able to get the iPad to start syncing.
Why does everything have to be so hard? I don't understand why my iPad was working perfectly fine before my laptop hard drive crashed. I have to fight to get anything to work. I can't I have simple days? I had planned to go to sleep early because I was tired from lack of sleep the day before. But no!
This post has been brought to you completely by my iPhone app! It is so much easier to update it all day long rather than to try to remember the next day. I need to do that more often.
