I'm about ready to go out and buy a new guitar. I took lessons and played for years growing up, and the one thing I always hated was tuning. I wasn't very good at it, and it would take me quite a while to get it perfect. Now you can use the Internet to tune your guitar. That's pretty awesome. With the online guitar tuner you can choose to tune your guitar by ear, or plug in and use the digitized service to tune it perfectly. Amazing! Now the only thing holding me back from playing like I used to is getting my fingers toughened up again.
Yep, that's right, I finally jumped into the 21st century and got a smart phone. I've wanted one for a long time, but kept being "practical" and telling myself I had a perfectly good phone. Well, I did, but hey, that thing couldn't do the things a smart phone does. And when they say "there's an app for that" they aren't kidding. I got an Android, and the Android market is just as competitive with iPhone when it comes to apps. There are millions of them--literally, and many of them completely free. I also chose a non-contract phone from Straight Talk. I've been using their phone service for about a year with my other phone, and really like it. Here's a picture of my new phone with the cute skin I bought for it.
Getting digital cable at home was a good decision mostly because I think it kept my husband from leaving me. He and I bought this place knowing it would need a lot of work but after a while I think we were both surprised by the time and energy that had to be put into the renovations. It seemed like all our free time including nights and weekends went into making this place a home and though it looks great now it’s hard to say it was worth it because it caused so many fights between us. I really wish I’d known better at the time than to volunteer us for such an intense craft project but you know I always bite off more than I can chew. It’s sort of my MO at the end of the day and my husband knew that, it’s just not usually a project we’re both so involved in but we got through it and I will admit that the house looks great. There’s nothing like the finished product!
I am dealing with carpal tunnel right now from overworking. I mistakenly double booked myself. I'm only one person. Sometimes I need to remind myself of that. The money is nice though, but I think a little less money and a lot less pain would be nicer. Once I get the real estate taxes and some of the repairs needed here out of the way, I think I will take a long vacation.
A long time artist and writer, I grew up in suburban Chicagoland, then moved to a rural town in Illinois where I worked, raised a family and bred all types of animals from rabbits and chickens to sheep, goats and horses on a small farm. I have been living with and loving my real-life knight in shining armor of 32 years. Recently relocated back to the suburbs of Chicago, and dreaming of moving to sunny Florida.
