Long time no see! I just wanted to update to say I got a Wii! Thank you Mom! I know it’s weird to make an update for that, but since I have nothing interesting to post at the moment, I thought I would post this.
It’s so great! My mom, youngest sister and I, set it up and played around with it for over 3 hours. I actually worked up a sweat! It came with the sports game and so far, I like the bowling and the tennis game the best. I am going to try and play it for at least 45 minutes to an hour a day. I don’t really get much exercise, but my Mom and I figure, if I do this everyday, I can lose a bit of weight and maybe get fit enough to do harder workouts in the future. There is a few more games and attachments that I want to get, but I will have to work my way up to buying those. I’m not in a hurry though. This is seriously an awesome gift.
Well, for the past few days (actually since Thanksgiving), I’ve been on a sugar eating binge and my feet and legs started swelling a few days ago. This has happened in the past, but after I removed soft drinks and other sugary drinks from my diet it quit doing that. My mom thinks I have diabetes, but I’m not sure. Or maybe I am sure, but I don’t want to admit it. Anyways, she wants me to go to the doctors, but I don’t really want to at the moment. I am keeping my feet elevated and the swelling is going down, so that should help.
My mom, sister and I have spent the day cleaning and rearranging the living room. We still have a bit of cleaning to do, but the main stuff is done. We had bought a new rug and a group of new curtains and rod and got those things up and the living room looks so much better now and it is much more open. Anyways, I am tired from moving stuff so I am heading for bed.
I may post pictures of the curtains latter, they are very pretty.
So, we got our new car yesterday. It is actually pretty nice. It’s an off-white 94 Nissan Maxima. It’s not the newest year, but it runs well and looks good. It will help a lot having another vehicle around here.
School also began for some of the family today. (The ones in this state at least.) It’s still crowded here, but today is my oldest sisters last day and tomorrow she is over to where she is moving and is getting things ready to go. I figure she and my niece will be here another week or so. I feel kind of bad for my niece though. She started her first day of school today and will probably be there for two weeks or so and then she is going to be uprooted again. I guess that is life sometimes. But it sucks to get adjusted to a new place, then having to move and adjust again within such a short time.
I ended up getting up early because everyone was getting ready for work or school and they were being a bit loud. I did plan on going back to bed, because I’m not used to getting up this early, but I guess I will stay up and find something to do. I have some cleaning I need to do, but I don’t know if I will get to that today.
Nothing much has been going on the last couple of days. I have been finishing setting up certain things with my computer and today I finally was able to get the wireless connection set up for all the computers in the house. I thought it would be hard to set up and I thought there might be problems with connections, but it works great and it was pretty easy to connect. I really like it and it will be so much better for all of us to have all the computers connected to the internet at once, so we don’t have to fight with who get to get on. lol.
I am also talking to my sister again. I won’t say it is easy, but at this point I am doing it for my moms sake. Yesterday, my mom kept asking me to set up her computer desk and chair and finally I snapped and said, If she wants it setup let her do it or you can do it for her, but please stop asking me.” I was honest when I said I wasn’t going to do things like that for her. You can’t be nasty to someone and then expect them to want to do things for you. So finally, after almost a week of the stuff just sitting there, my mom and sister finally set it all up.
However, I did have to set up the wi-fi stuff for her. The only reason I did that was because I’m the one who handles computer side of things and since my computer is the main computer where the wireless stuff is hooked up too, I had to do it. But the desk and chair, nope I wasn’t going to do it.
What else, we should be picking up our new car tomorrow. It will be nice to have multiple vehicles again. My ex-stepfather (Krissy’s father) also picked up one of the other cars that we had that was a gas guzzler. We didn’t use it and it was just sitting there so we gave it to him.
Anyways, not much else is going on. I think I will go play Sims2 some more.
Today was a busy one for me. I spent a lot of the day transferring my files from my old computer to this new one. I then went shopping and bought a wireless broadband router, wireless adapters and my new chair. In the next day or two, I plan on setting up the wireless stuff, so we all can be on the computer at the same time. I did set up my new chair because I wanted to get the old one out of the house, but after doing that I was just so tired that I decide to relax and finish uploading my Sims 2 games and expansion packs.
I played for a little bit after I was done loading everything and wow…the difference is simply amazing. The load time is only minutes instead of 20-30 minutes and now I can actually began playing again. I ended up quitting a couple of months ago, because I got tired of waiting for it to load and all the pausing it would do. It’s hard to play a game when it constantly buffers. So yeah, it makes me happy that I can now play my games.
