NanoPoblano Day #30

All rights reserved by Rarasaur

What a wonderful day!  My friend came over for a visit and we made soap together.  She brought her 1 y/o grandson, and man what a handsome little doll he is!  Eyelashes all the way to Canada!  He kept smiling at my daughter and his little dimpled grin melted my heart.  🙂

Wait, what, it’s the last day of November?  Goodness, I didn’t even realize it until I just now looked up at my calendar and saw I need to change it tomorrow.  That means Nano is over.  😦  I will be sad, but I confess, I’ve failed miserably at it this year.  I simply did not have the time to focus on it or the other participants like I wanted, and for that, I apologize.  Next year, I will be better, I promise!  And yes Rara, if you’re reading this, sign me up for 2017!  ❤

How’d you do this year for Nano?  Did you accomplish your goals?  Was it harder or easier than you expected?  Did you make new friends?

To my Nano Pals, both old and new, yay we did it!  *hugs*

Company’s coming tomorrow, yay!  A sweet friend I haven’t seen in a couple years.  We’re going to make soap together!  I am so excited!

And the bathroom’s clean, whew! 

Failed on the fasting.  I only got 2 days in before I caved.  I was struggling with a headache so I ate so I could take some meds.  I added magnesium to my regimen but I’m thinking it might not have been enough.  Well, there are 3 more days until Friday dinner, so hopefully I’ll be able to hang tough the rest of the week. 

How was your Tuesday?

NanoPoblano Day #28

Back to the grind today. 

Would you like a free trial to a Pro desktop email client?

You may remember all the email trouble I’ve had in recent months.  Okay, you don’t, I honestly didn’t expect you to.  🙂  It just sounded like a good beginning.  Anyway, I used Live Mail for my desktop email client, and earlier in the year they ceased support for Outlook mail.  Both Windows products, go figure.  So I started using Outlook, but Outlook has a much more limited capacity for email accounts you can add, so I split my email accounts between the two programs.  And Outlook’s desktop client proceed to give me headache after headache and I ended up having to create multiple profiles because one would stop working, which meant I had to start all over again.  Turned out Outlook was doing some upgrading but neglected to mention it until afterward. 

Then Google decided to cause further headaches by deciding that they didn’t like that I had email accounts unconnected to a phone number so they suspended all my Gmail accounts, of course not knowing they were all MY Gmail accounts.  So I had to figure out how to work through that one, took me a month to do it and I did end up letting a couple accounts go that I wasn’t really using.

I’ve been kind of testing a program called Mailbird for a while now as a result of the headbanging aggravations that Outlook and Live Mail have caused me, and today I took the leap and got a lifetime license.  They were having this great Cyber Monday sale and you know me.  Sale.  Yeah.

But, as a token of appreciation, they gave me a free 3 mos Pro license to give to a friend.  Now, their free version will manage up to 3 email accounts, so if you have 3 or less, it’s not really worth it to get the Pro version.  But if you have 4 or more email accounts, are you interested in a free 3 mos trial of the Pro Mailbird?  This little program is really growing on me.  I love the apps section, where you can check all kinds of things like your Google Calendar, and Facebook, all within the program and not have to open separate windows or tabs for those things.  It’s a pretty good all in one kind of thing.  So, if you’re interested in a free trial, lemme know and I’ll send you the license key.   

So, how was your Monday?

NanoPoblano Day #27

So that’s it.  That’s the end of vacation.  My husband is practically heartbroken at having to go back to work.  So are the kids about going back to school.  It’s hard to go back to normal I guess because normal feels, in so many ways, wrong. 

But, it is what it is and we cowboy up and just do what needs doing, right?  I found this awesome little graphic – maybe I’ll print it up and put it on my wall so I can always see it:

Am I right?  Yeah, you get it, too.  😀

How was your Sunday?

NanoPoblano Day #26

All these years since I’ve lived in California, and I still look at the clock and my mind automatically calculates what time it is there.  So, I’m “technically” still on time for my Poblano post, lol.  😀

The day was quiet, much like yesterday.  It was a day for gathering strength to head back into real life on Monday.  Tomorrow will be preparation day.  Monday is work, and school, and fasting.  Oh goodness how I need to fast!  There’s a phrase I never thought I’d say – “I am so looking forward to fasting!”

But, I know for a fact I actually will die before I ever utter the phrase, “Oh what a cute spider, can I hold it?”  Yeah.  That’ll never happen.  EVER.  Reminds me of my high school sweetheart, who actually DID get a pet tarantula, he even named it after me, and asked me if I wanted to hold it. 

Hold your spider?!  Seriously?  Have we met? 

In all honesty, he’s an awesome guy and we’re still friends.  But I never would hold that namesake.  *shudder*

How was your Saturday?
