Next, we went shopping for eBook readers. So far the Kobo and the Nook look the best.
This afternoon, my older brother came over and helped us fix some potholes on our driveway. They look good so far. Now to wait 3 days for them to cure!

Also sent in some incentive points to get verified. Hopefully that means I can get some more money for March bill payments. My goal is to get these cards paid back down after Christmas and birthday spending.
Ends up today will be the pre-shopping trip to Verizon.

They forget to tell you that the Volt, like the Prius, is a high price rental. At $100-$200* per day, I would still expect to be charged if I don't. Now to find an extension cord to go from the hotel room to my car.
* Rate based on added options, insurance, and how well you bargained you daily rate.
This is just too much!

Finished getting my Windows Home Server Vail Preview machine working again. Easy enough fix but it would have been nice if they would have told somebody ahead of time. The Connect site doesn't say anything! Hopefully the newest beta refresh doesn't ruin it totally.
Keep planning to get my shoe collection orginized and recataloged so I can sell what I don't wear and publish the pictures for what I'm keeping. Still hoping to find people to just swap one-for-one but I'm not gonna hold my breath. Maybe I can afford some new pairs from the sales of old. If I'm really lucky I can get some new camera or sports gear too. Depends on what people are willing to pay.
Well off to get ready for another day in the Mattress department.

Went with my mom yesterday to spend her 2 Fashion Bug gift cards. I recommended Catherine's or Lane Bryant but she was focused. The manager was as rude as ever. I would have thought after the last run in they would have learned. Sigh!
On the up side, the spaghetti sauce we cooked came out excellent!

August: Got a new computer since the motherboard on my last one died in the middle of a BIOS flash. Another HP from Fry's and I like it. Turned the old one in to a Windows Home Server with a new motherboard. Also bought a Technet Standard subscription. For my birthday we went to Point Defiance Zoo. Pictures availible on my photos page http://sn.im/1tsvyl.
September: Kelly also got a new computer to replace his Mac G4 running OS 10.4 (Tiger). For his birthday, we went to Woodland Park Zoo. Pictures availible on my photos page http://sn.im/1tsvyl.
October: Not much of interest except finding a pair of football pants at Ross.
November: Going to to my least favorite time of year. Work gets slow for me but crazy for the rest of the store. Hello late hours, goodbye sleep. Also had some of the worst snow in a long time.
Thanksgiving was nice and quiet.
December: No snow and crazier hours!
Christmas was again nice and quiet.
January (month to date): Taking some time off this last weekend and more next week. Had a jury summons, but court was canceled. Not to worry though, I got a new summons for Febuary....sigh.
