So I uninstalled Draw Free/Draw Something. Now that Zynga took over, the app takes forever to load and there are way too many ads. Not to mention the limited amount of bombs and color packs you can get now that they are trying to make more money.
I was so disappointed when I learned about the Zynga taking over. I knew this was going to happen. Draw Something was such a fun game; one of the only games I ever played on my phone. The game is just no fun anymore.
Today, I took a walk with my dog. We ended up at the local farmers market about half a mile away from the apartment. I picked out a couple of onions, and only ended up spending 90 cents!
Lizzie was so good on the leash during the whole walk. I am proud of her. On our normal walks, she sometimes pulls and does not pay too much attention to me, but today was different. I think she enjoyed our walk.
On the way home, back up the hill, Lizzie did not slow down too much like I thought she would. We do not normally take such long walks and I was afraid it would be too much for her. But she did it, and so did I. We did it together.
Back inside, Lizzie gulped down 2 quarts of water and I turned on the Wii for my daily workout. I am so much stronger than I was a month ago.
I am not a big game person. I do not enjoy playing games. Never have. But, I want to be able to spend some free time doing something my loving boyfriend and I can enjoy together. Usually we end up sitting on opposite sides of the room on our own computers.
Now that he has his TV and game systems here, he naturally wanted to play. He knew that I have never had a gaming system growing up; I bought my Wii just a few years ago. So one night I went out and bought a cheap Lego game and decided to try.
It only took a few days (and a couple of small arguments) for us to finish the entire story. Now we can go back and replay levels.
I enjoy spending time with him and it is something that we can do together, but I am still not that into playing video games. And now it is almost football time, so I will have to learn to enjoy something else.
I have one of those jobs where having my phone on my desk is frowned upon. So I keep it in a drawer and look at it a few times a day (breaks and lunch). If I were able to keep it out, the note apps would be put to good use. It seems I always think of something that needs to be done later while I am sitting there doing my work.
By the time I get home after work, I want to forget about my day and focus on everything else that needs to be done at home. Fortunately, I have come up with a great and simple way to keep organized.
When I come up with something that needs to be done while at work, I write it down on a sticky note (aka Post it note). Then I stick that sticky to the back of my phone the next time I look at it. This way, I can write notes to myself for later and will not even be able to forget the note, since it will be stuck on the back of my phone.
For example, say I am at work and I realize I need to call my friend to ask about something. I will jot it down on a sticky note and then place that sticky on the back of my phone, throw the phone back in the drawer, and remember to take care of it after work.
I bet this tip would help many people such as myself who work and need to remember things.
It is amazing how wonderful life can be when you are in love. I am in awe each day that I am lucky enough to wake up next to the most amazing man on the planet. He loves me so much and I love him even more. We have our share of arguments, but they never last long. For over a year and a half, I have been fortunate enough to share my life with the love of my life. I can't wait to see what the future has in store for us.
