Sunday, June 9, 2013 – Actually Monday morning at 12:17AM – This Weekend Was Fun
I didn’t do anything special, but this was a fun, relaxing weekend.
I had planned to get up around 10ish this morning (Sunday morning), however I did not. I did not get up until 1. And then at 2 I took a nap. It was supposed to be a thirty minute nap, but it turned into a 2 hour nap. I’m okay with that.
Yesterday, Saturday, I went to Sun City which is about an hour north of where I work and an hour and half north of where I live. I like it there and I have to go there for work a lot but I never go to any of the stores or do anything other than pass through it when I go. Yesterday I went to the mall and bookstore. I didn’t go downtown, which I really like, but still, I enjoyed the city and had fun. (Down town is pretty much an entirely different place compared to the rest of Sun City.)
I also went to Best Buy because I was looking for a new computer bag…and I just wanted to shop.
I’ve been thinking a lot about not spending money lately, and I haven’t spent that much. But I did spend about $50 in the bookstore, and $20 on a pair of sunglasses. I also bought some Van’s, which I really like, that were on sale for $30, but I didn’t. And they were even in my new favorite color and I still resisted.
I figured I had already spent enough and I didn’t need any more shoes right now, which is all true.
While I was at Best Buy I found a laptop bag I thought I wanted and I was going to go back and get it if I didn’t find anything better in the mall. For whatever reason, I did not return to get it after leaving the mall. I think that is because I had decided to go to another city on Sunday and would go to the computer store and see what they had. I thought they might have a bigger selection.
Well then on Sunday I didn’t get up in time to go…it’s about an hour south of where I live. I did, however, end up going to Best Buy there and bought it. It is Swiss Gear or Swiss Guard and I paid $79 for it. I wanted something with a better name if I was going to spend that much but I went with it. Now, I’m not sure I like it. I will return it if I don’t…but I think Best Buy charges a restock fee for returns. Actually, I returned something the other day and they didn’t. It was a while back, not the other day, but still.
The thing I don’t like about it is that it feels top heavy…and it doesn’t sit on my shoulder right. If it’s not going to be comfortable it will be returned. But, it does have plenty of space for my stuff!
Oh, and the most exciting purchase I made on Saturday was a new Screaming Meanie alarm clock. Truckers use them; they are super loud. Maybe I can wake up on time now. It was $35.
I’m having problems with either the internet or my computer, I’m not sure which.
