All is right with the world (for now!)

My car is fixed and running better than ever. In fact it’s like a brand-new car– the clutch is so sensitive I practically have to re-learn how to drive it!  It’s wonderful.

My sister is home from the hospital and resting peacefully.  She and the babies are healthy.  This weekend I’m taking my mom to see her, and we’re both looking forward to it.

One of my friends had a string of bad luck as well– his cat died and is iPod was stolen.  Last night my friends and I got together for his birthday and gave him his present:  a new iPod and lots of love and support. 

Bad things happen in big bunches.  But eventually, everything seems to right itself and things don’t seem so bad. 

Let’s hope that all stays right with the world from now until the end of the year (at least).  As we enter the holiday season, I think that’s all we can ask for!

Out with the old, in with the NEW!

The new iPod Classic 160 GBSo here’s what happened…

I brought in my old iPod to the Apple Store, where I found out that my extended warranty had expired in July.  How utterly convenient.

I explained the problems I had been having with my iPod, and they said that it would cost me $250 to replace it with the same model.

or…

I could turn in the clunker my old trusty friend and receive 10% off a new iPod.

I chose the latter, and decided to trade up– way up.

So I got a 160 GB iPod Classic.

I never said I wasn’t a size queen. 🙂
