BUSTED! In more ways than one


I took a marathon nap Saturday and when I woke up after midnight I realized that I didn’t post for Saturday!  OH no, there goes my streak of posting everyday for the month of November.  I made it most of the way anyway.

Well I was doing pretty good on days until I suddenly got tired on Friday around 5pm.  I made myself stay awake as long as I could but around 6pm I was in bed.  I slept until maybe 2am and then couldn’t sleep anymore.  So I was back on the night shift again.  I started reading my kindle thinking I could stay kinda sleepy and end up falling back to sleep again.  Well, not only did that not work but I ended up dropping my kindle and breaking the screen.  I was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo sad!!  But it wasn’t obviously broken at that time.  It just seemed to be frozen.  What was on the screen was just stuck there.  I thought it just needed to be reset.  So I put it aside to wait until my tech support woke up.  As soon as my hubby woke up I showed it to him and he tried to figure out how to reset it.  He tried looking online and trying different things.  Nothing worked but the screen started to look a little different.  It is divided by lines that separate the corners in triangular shapes.  The majority of the top part of the screen is still frozen on the last thing I was looking at.  Other parts of it changed to just white and one small corner at the bottom was still working with some lines in it.  You could see the text change when you hit the button to turn the page.  So, it seems the screen is broken but the kindle still works.  I was thinking about contacting support to see how much it would cost to repair it when Chris said we should go do some stuff for my birthday.  So we got ready to go.  He asked where I wanted to eat and all I could think about was french fries!!!!!!  So we went to McDonalds (I’m a cheap date).  Then we went to walmart and he bought me some new cool pajama’s with the grinch on them!  The pants are plaid with a warm yellow green and black and pictures of the grinch.  The top is black, long sleeved and has the grinch down the right side with a few snowflakes.  They are cute!  He also bought me a set of matching hat, scarf and gloves with this neat black and white zigzag pattern.  When we were in the car he asked where my gloves and hat were and I said I hadn’t made them yet LOL  So he bought me some so I don’t have to knit some.  I’m still going to make that neat hat from a few posts back though!  I had a bunch of fun just hanging out with him but guess what else he bought me????!??!?!?!?!!  A Kindle Fire!  It’s in color and is like having a small ipad.  I love it!  Funny thing  is I still miss my old Kindle.  All my books transferred over to my new kindle but the games that were designed for the other kindle are gone.  I will really miss those grid type games and word games.  I feel really bad that I broke something so expensive.  That version with the keyboard is cheaper now than it was when I got it.  I keep thinking of the money wasted.  I did get some good use out of it but I took really good care of it……… until I dropped it that is.

So now I’m in my new pajamas all warm and comfy and I’m going to go read a book on my new Kindle :O)
