The love of my life has been spending a good amount of time planning something very special for the up and coming Valentine’s Day for us to enjoy, but has been trying so hard to keep it a secret. He knows that it is driving me crazy not knowing what he is up to and that it is very difficult to pull off a surprise with me, which makes him try even harder to keep his lips sealed.
I think that I have figured part of it out, though I won’t let him know what I discovered on his computer today while he was visiting his parents. Usually he takes his laptop with him wherever he goes, but today he walked out the door and left it behind. Now, people that really know me, know that I am not the type of person to snoop into somebody elses business. I respect people’s privacy and all that, but this big secret that he is hiding is just driving me crazy. So when he left and I noticed he didn’t take his laptop I figured it was the perfect opportunity to see just what has been up to and boy wasn’t I surprised to find the sites that he has been visiting and has bookmarked.
It looks like he has found and booked us a room at one of the Executive Fantasy Hotels Miami Florida, which I have never heard of up until now, but after what I saw online about it I can’t wait to see it and experience it myself! I just hope that this doesn’t come back and bite me in the butt. I could be totally off base with his intentions. I know that one should never assume, and lord knows I try not to. If you haven’t seen or heard of this unique fantasy hotel you really should check out their website.
There was an email in my email inbox confirming that order for the Agogo Bells was indeed processed and ready to head out my way this morning. I am not the most patient person in the world so I do appreciate all that the Internet brings to us almost instantly. I can’t image ordering anything that I couldn’t check up and/or track online. We are the generation of instant gratification indeed!
I’ll feel a lot better once it is here and I know that it has arrived in time for the party next week! There are going to be a good amount of friends and family there that I haven’t seen since last Christmas. I sure hope everyone is on their best behavior and that no drama starts up between anyone, but that hasn’t always been the case these past couple of years. But that is a whole other can of worms that I don’t want to open up right now.
I was reading an article about how much power is wasted by leaving your computer on overnight. The total amount is staggering. Each year, up to $2.8 billion dollars are spent to power unused computers in the USA. That is estimated to be the equivalent of 4 million cars on the road.
I think Americans are still just getting started looking into the amount of energy we use. Not only do we leave on computers, I see porch lights on in the day time. We need to become more aware of how we use the energy we have. If we all do a little, we could do a lot!
It really bites that most of my friends and family have relocated so far from here. We do try to keep in touch with all of the various ways that today’s technologies allow us to and for the major holidays we have managed to get most everyone together as best as we can, but it still hurts.
A good friend of mine is hiring a local DJ for her 25th wedding anniversary party she is throwing in September that I would love to attend. This DJ has the latest pcdj software that is so talked about these days in the music industry. Unfortunately September is such a busy month, what with schools getting started and all the chores that are required to tend to at that time of the year, that there really isn’t any real chance that I could just take off for a long weekend for something like this. At least I know that there will be plenty of pictures that I can look at when she gets around to posting them on Facebook.
There are Hot Deals a plenty going on right now at Musician’s Friend’s website. Now is the perfect time to start seriously looking at great deals online much like the awesome deal on fender rumble bass combo amp. Unbelievable that in just over two months we will be running around like crazy people trying to take care of all the things that we deem necessary in order to make the summer season a success.
Coming from such a musical inclined family I usually try and find musical related items on all of the gift giving holidays that never stop arriving.
These days I am not going to use any of my credit cards. Last year at Christmas time I almost made it by only using cash, but three days before the “big” day I had to use my VISA for just a few things that I couldn’t manage to live without. I hope that I can truly make it this year.
