random sunday musings

have had a quiet day. still at my parents house. decided to spend the night here and go from here in the morning to the basement club for my day on the interview panel. i picked out my outfit that i’m going to wear. a black dress pants and a black and red dress top. i asked mom if she would do my make up. i want to make a good impression so i decided a little make up would be good. did not get up to much today. my phone was acting up so i had to reset it. it was telling me that i had very little space left on the phone. but i knew that could not be the case as i only had a couple of aps and only 1 gig was used up with pictures. the phone is 16 gigs in total. so i ended up resetting it and then i had to ask mom to help me to set it up because when i erased everything the voice went off too. for those who dont know i use speech on the i phone. the speech is built in but you need to turn it on before the phone will actually speak. anyway after much playing around with the phone mom was able to turn it on. i was trying to tell her my apple ID and password so she could get into my itunes account but she kept entering it wrong and i was afraid apple would lock me out of my account. eventually she managed to switch on the speech and i was able to do the rest of what needed to be done myself. that whole ordeal took about an hour. i was so worked up and anxious because i thought i wouldnt be able to get the phone working and i cant be without a working phone. when i eventually did get it going and downloaded some of my aps and stuff i realised i’d lost all of my contacts out of the phone. so then i had the laborious task of trying to input everyones info again. i had backed up the phone to itunes but i was afraid to try to reinstall everything from the back up because i didnt want the phone to get full again. so i’m without certain peoples contact info now and i’ll have to wait for them to contact me before i can enter it into my phone. i dont have my pa kristens info, or my nutritionist karens info, or my home helps info. hoping they text me tomorrow so i will be able to get it again. other than my phone fiasco i’ve been reading for the afternoon. i’m rereading a cathy glass book. the book is called the saddest girl in the world. i read it about a year ago on kindle but now i’m rereading it in audio. for some reason kindle books dont hold the same attention for me as audio versions. i seem to forget the story faster if i read it on kindle. thats probably because when i read on kindle i’m using the voice on my phone to read the text. when i use audible a narrator is reading the book to me. the woman who reads cathys books is really good. i like her a lot. my parents house has been so quiet today because my sister didnt come with the kids like she normally would on a sunday. normally she comes and we all eat a big sunday roast together. i missed the kids today. they bring me so much joy and happiness. i need to get started on my xmas shopping soon. i have to write out a list first though of who i need to buy gifts for. i think its better to have a list to work from. mom said she’ll go shopping with me soon for presents for people. i asked mom and dad what they wanted but both of them said they’d prefer money to gifts. although today mom said she’d like some internet on her phone. so i could give her the money for a few months worth of internet. right now she doesnt have any internet on her plan. so that means she cant play her bingo game she likes or watch youtube videos which she also likes to do. i’ve decided to get mom and my sister an extra gift each as a thank you for all that they do for me in my house and with cooking and stuff each wednesday. i havent decided what i’ll get them yet but it will be vouchers of some sort i’m sure. i heard xmas songs on the radio today, lol middle of november and they are already playing xmas songs, xmas just gets earlier with each year. i plan on watching tv for the rest of the evening. x factor the results show is on. i’ll probably read more of my book too and catch up on my email and some blogs.
