MacBook Pro is All Better Now

Leave a comment

After several weeks of having only an iPad to use for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, email, blogging, etc, my MacBook Pro is now working again.  Don’t get me wrong, I love the iPad, but it’s lovely to be able to type freely and quickly.  One of the reasons you didn’t see as many posts from me lately was simply that blogging from an iPad every day was a pain in the butt.

I replaced the hard drive and RAM myself, and reinstalled the operating system and all my programs.  It was fun!

But now, I’m back.  And I have big plans for the blog.  Oh yes indeedy.  I’ll cover that more later.  First, let’s backtrack to yesterday, shall we?

Sunday

I woke up yesterday feeling pretty good considering I had just run 20 miles the day before.  Mat and I took my sister to get her first ever pair of REAL running shoes, and as I mentioned to Skinny Runner, she went with Mizuno Wave Rider 16s.  Mat and Daddy and I are all about New Balance, but Mizunos worked better for her feet.

I got some new shoes too.  About time – I’d been running on my other ones since August/September!

We made chicken fajitas for dinner last night and ate them with salad.  Good stuff!

Monday

Today was a non-student day since the kids all had finals last week.  That meant that us teachers got to go to school and have meetings and get our grades done.  My grades were done by Saturday afternoon, so that meant that this teacher got to go to school and have meetings and then sit around.

I could have gone out to lunch, but I opted to bring it from home because I didn’t want to spend extra money and didn’t want to consume extra calories.  I’ve been consuming enough calories lately in the form of Chipotle and frozen yogurt.

We made a barley shrimp risotto recipe in the crock pot for dinner.  We accidentally bought 10 minute barley so it got a little soggy, but otherwise it was good.

Steamed Brussels sprouts on the side.  I covered my plate in parmesan cheese.

Dee-licious!

In other news, I realize it’s now Tuesday night and I’ve only covered Sunday and Monday.  That’s because not all my pictures had re-uploaded to Google drive.  I think I mentioned it briefly last night.

In still more news, my husband went from this, which he’s had for about a month,

He went on a beard kick for a few weeks and then suddenly decided never mind.  Not gonna lie, I like the smooth-shaven better.  🙂

Hope your Tuesday was good!
