Just Hanging out in Yuma…

I think, maybe, I am almost back among the living…lol. I caught a stomach virus somewhere and have felt like crap for about 3 days. Today is the 4th day and I thought I was feeling better, but…..I guess, not as well as I thought. I hate being sick! Mac & I missed the Parade on Friday night and the Friday night Card games with the friends.

Saturday, I just pretty much laid around. Mac went to the store and picked up a few things. He worked outside getting some other things done. He has been working on the outside patio area. He got the lights all put up around the patio and the firepit area.

Sunday morning I am still not feeling very good so Mac went to the Bloody Mary Sunday without me. I’m just not comfortable to be away from home until this virus goes away. He’s supposed to bring me a sandwich…we’ll see if he remembers. LOL

I have been reading quite a bit and playing with the Kindle Fire. I really really love it! I can check my email, do Facebook, browse the internet, play Words with Friends, and read my books. It has been fun checking things out on it. The only thing you have to remember with the Fire…is that you have to have WiFi if you want to be online. I use mine off of my Cradlepoint Router with the Verizon Aircard. I’m due for a new aircard and I think I’m gonna check out the Mifi if they will let me bring one home to test it out. I don’t want to go to 4g because I will have to change my plan and I have the 5g plan now and if I go to 4g I understand that I will only get 2g with the option to increase that for more money. Anyhow, I’m gonna check it out.

Monday we had some chores to get done and a couple of errands to run…nothing exciting…Post Office, UPS, and to Fry’s Grocery. About 4:00 we headed out to the Moose Lodge for Wings and Karaoke. No, we didn’t sing…LOL. We met all of our friends there and spent a very nice evening.

Tuesday we had plans to take a Bus Tour to see the Christmas lights here in Yuma. $9.00 each + 4 cans of canned goods or non perishables. The lights were very pretty. I even uploaded a couple of photos to Facebook. The tour lasted a little over 2 hours and then we were back at the Tour Bus Business. We all agreed we were not ready to head home just yet so we met at the Moose for another drink and listen to some more Karaoke. We made our plans for the rest of the week…Friday night Pizza & Cards, Christmas Eve Get-together, and our Christmas Day dinner gathering. It has been so great to be pulled right in to this tight group of friends. We love them all!!

Tomorrow, Dec 22nd, is Mac & my 27th Anniversary. I can’t believe we have been married for 27 years!


Stay tuned….we’re going to get busy this weekend!!

Netter I think you are mistaken on the mifi. The 2 gig limit if for smart phones. The mifi has a 5 gig limit for $50 and 10 gig $80. The mifi is 3g and 4g and will use whichever is available. We have had ours since June and are pleased with it. It also has an antenna port.
