This Week in Happy: January 01-02, 2015

I was going to do the whole week, but I decided since the year just started, and that’s when my “One Little Word” kicked in, that would be just the first and the second. So, here they are.

January 01: Happy

I have a small little handmade dashboard. Or something like that. I love my Erin Condren planner. Seriously.
Also, if you use this link, you can get $10 off your first order (and I’ve found that you also get sent ANOTHER CODE when you order for another $10 off :O !)

Madi and Suzie

Yesterday, we went to Holton. Josh’s dad wanted Josh’s help checking out the Silverado‘s brakes. BTW: its definitely the calipers. I remember that burning metal smell from the Jimmy when its calipers locked up. Considering Josh was pretty sure the calipers haven’t ever been changed, as far as he knows (and I think his dad confirmed that, minus a brake job, several years ago), that’s a long-lasting caliper πŸ˜› It also needs a new/replacement power steering pump. That’s not too bad πŸ˜‰ The Sonoma needed one too, πŸ˜†

We actually spent most of the day outside. Yes, even me! Crazy right? Well, it didn’t really get that hot, and Holton had a pretty steady breeze blowing up until it was about time for us to leave πŸ™‚

Last night, Mark and Julie came over. Mark brought the laptop, so Julie was between us, and we were all comparing phones, πŸ˜† Found out that the Samsung Captivate comes out THIS summer! I get to have a Samsung Android phone. Though it looks like they might not use my current charger connector though, πŸ™ Oh well, I can send those to Mom and Dad, since Dad’s Blackjack and Rugged (for work) and Mom’s Blackjack (my old one) use the same connections.

Otherwise, not much is going on in this side of the world. Fireworks for Kids have started. Started yesterday morning, continued most of the day into the night, and started at 7am, and didn’t end until about half hour ago (it’s 3:15pm right now). The parking lot looks like a bomb went off because these kids aren’t cleaning up after themselves either. The biggest kicker: none of them are past the age of 11, and are doing this with absolutely no adult supervision at all, unless you count the adults who look out their windows, or the maintenance guy they’re shooting them off in front of.

Playing With Phones


Checking text messages on my phone. I currently have a Samsung BlackJack II (if you couldn’t tell), and my next phone is going to be a BlackBerry Curve 8310 or BlackBerry Curve 8900. I’d prefer the 8900. Going to also end up with the unlimited Blackberry data plan through AT&T. My contract isn’t up until June, but my 18-month upgrade is December. Just in time for my birthday, which means, if the 8900 is a little more than we want, I can just tell Mom and Dad that I want cash for my birthday towards it. Praying

Nice Photos, Even With Cellphone Cameras

Okay, first off, the pictures taken are with a Samsung BlackJack II. I expanded the memory with a 2-gig Lexar MicroSD card. My primary program of choice is Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 Ultimate. Yes, I have Adobe Photoshop CS3, but I prefer PSP over PS.

This tutorial will not teach you how to upload your pictures, or anything like that.
