I mean, I did weigh myself this morning, just to see, and I did lose 2 more lbs (almost 3!) and that's pretty awesome, so I guess that counts as TIOT.
I lost 2 lbs. Yay!
Now moving on.
I haven't done a post where I just typed and typed and let things happen in a really long time, so today that is what you're getting. Fasten your seat belts, please keep all arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times.
I mean, first I feel like I need to acknowledge all of the beautiful and wonderful people who are now to the right of these words. ----->
Holy cannoli, blogging is fun! You can still use the code TURNDOWNFORWHAT for 40% off all ad spaces until Friday. No pressure. And to all of you lovely sidebar people, I have emails drafted to all of you, I've just haven't actually sent them, because.. I suck. Life happens.
I went to see The Fault In Our Stars last night.
Oh and then as the credits are rolling and we're all filing out of the theater, the usher? or theater worker? or whatever they're called kept saying "have a nice night", so I go "look at this guy telling all of us to have a nice night as we're wiping tears off of our faces and blowing our noses!" and busted out laughing.
Now let's talk about something exciting to wrap this post up.. There's a story involved, because I'm long winded.
I went to my parents' house after work yesterday because I had a package (new cell phone case, fyi) and some mail. Also, I wanted to talk to my mom about a potential New York trip this fall, because she's good at planning things and she's been before and she's my mom and I usually run ideas by her first anyway. Also, also I wanted to talk to her about what kind of Mac I should get and how she felt about refurbished Macs, etc. etc. So she has a MacBook Pro, but my grandpa (who lives next door) has a MacBook Air and since I was leaning towards the Air, she said "let's go over there and look at his".. And so we walked across the yard and did just that.
While we were looking she mentioned that my grandpa never uses his MacBook. As in he's probably used it to get onto the internet a total of 5 times. If anything, my mom has used it more than him when she helps him do things. So it was just sitting there, kind of like an expensive decoration. So we ask my grandpa if I can just buy it off of him. I said $700, my mom said $400, and then my grandpa said "just have it". Well I wasn't about to just take it, so eventually he said $50. I ran back to my parents house, grabbed $60 out of my purse and ran back over and handed it to him ($10 tip, obviously). My mom boxed it up and now I'm the happy, happy owner of a very gently used MacBook Air. I went pick up my $15 cell phone case and came home with a $1000 laptop. Happy Monday!
The thing is.. I've never had a Mac. Our home computer was an HP, I got my first laptop as my high school graduation present and it was a Dell (neverrrrrr again will i own a dell), then a little over 3 years ago when it died, I bought this Toshiba. So, I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm actually writing this on my Toshiba, because I didn't have time to play with the Mac last night, so I still don't know what I'm doing. My mom gave me a quick crash course, but I didn't have time to test it out.
That was a really long story, but the quick version is that now I have a MacBook Air and I'm happy.
You can link up for TIOT with Allie and I. I'm sorry (ish, very ish) that this wasn't very fitness-y or weight loss-y. But, I did lose 2lbs.
