$80 Poorer

Yesterday when I arrived home from work, it seemed kind of crazy because the sun was still up!  It was nice to come home right after work and not really have anything that was an absolute must on the to-do list.

Before I left for work, I laid out a piece of salmon that was just waiting to be baked in the oven for dinner when I got home.  While I prepped and cooked my salmon, Brian’s mom made me a nice little salad which made a nice bed for my salmon once it was done cooking.

Yumm…simple, little thought required, quick, and tasty.  Just what I needed.

Broken Charger

A couple of days ago, my charger broke.  I am not sure how it happened, but there was no way of fixing it.  I was simply using my computer before bed, and when I went to unplug the charger from the outlet…the entire charging part with the prongs literally fell apart.  I know that I am strong, but really?? The entire thing just completely pulling apart??

A couple of months ago, the original charger that I had gotten with my computer when I graduated high school (that was so long ago!) pooped out on me.  So, me being the cheap person that I am went on the internet and tried to find the cheapest apple charger that I could find.  I found one that looked good, had pretty good reviews, wasn’t very expensive and ordered it.  When it came in the mail I actually received two!  I was ecstatic!

Well, the first charger replacement that I used just stopped working for some reason about a month ago, so I had moved on to charger number two…then this happens!  So, I was a little bit stuck.

Because I use my computer literally every day, and I had a bad experience being a cheap skate last time I just sucked it up, went to Best Buy and bought the brand-spankin’ new $80 charger….at least it came with the extension cord portion.

At first, I nearly had a heart attack…$80 in one trip! But then when I thought about that this is something that I use everyday, that I want to last me for a couple of years…the $80 seemed worth it.

The charger works great, and hopefully will last me another 5 years!! I guess I learned my lesson when it comes to technology and trying to save a couple dollars.

Lunch

As I was packing my lunch and dinner for today last night, I was trying to figure out which bag I should use, when Kate (Brian’s mom) pulled out this baby…

That lunch box is about the size of my work bag, but it is great because I can fit all of my snacks, lunch, and dinner in there with room to spare!  Perfect!  I swear that Kate has a special little thing for every situation :)  Thank goodness!

Question of the Morning:

  • What do you pack your food in for the day??  
  • Or do you just purchase your food throughout the day??

  1. I cycle to work, so I carry a backpack. I cram everything in there and then transfer stuff to my desk drawer or the fridge in the kitchen. It’s okay but my backpack is not quite as nice as that bag Kate whipped out :) Hope this charger lasts longer than the last one! Sometimes you get what you pay for.
