The other day, after my firestick not working yet again, I decided to just order a new one. It was $40, but after I clicked on add to cart, it popped up with 2 Amazon promotions going on for it, one for $20 off and one for $5 off, bringing the cost down to $15. Then I also clicked on their "trade in" old device and after I send that one back in, I should get another $8 back for that, I think. Well, shoot - can't beat $7 for a Firestick! I just gotta hope now that a new one will work. We have an old one out on the tv in the shop and it seems to work fine, so I'm not really sure why this one on our house tv stopped working. I hope it's just the device and not something wrong with my tv connection for plugging it in. I really don't want to have to replace the tv....only because it would be a pain in the butt to take down and put up a new one over the fireplace, LOL. But, I guess if a new tv is needed, then of course it will be a smart tv and no firestick will be needed.
My mom actually called me on her own, no help from staff, yesterday afternoon at 4pm. She knew it was somewhat close to dinner time as she kept saying "I don't want to keep you long, you are probably making dinner". I can tell when one of the staff helps her dial because after I answer you can hear them and/or her say something and then they leave and this time it was just her. She even remembered dh's name this time....but then said it was almost Christmas, LOL. But, overall she sounded really good still and was happy.
It sounds like my boss may have found someone for the accounting assistant position we want to add. I don't think she had posted the job yet, but through networking had received an email from a colleague about a young man, in college, looking for a job. It does not sound like he'd probably be more than a year or two at our position, but she seems ok with that. He's studying to be a lawyer and will be in law school in about a year and a half. He went through a program my company is involved in to help disadvantaged high school students gain some perspective and experience working in our field. Inspire them to push on with their education, whether it be at college or trade school. I think she will be setting up an interview with him.
Gosh, March is almost over already. We're having rain this morning, instead of snow. DH has twice lately been off on what day of the week it is. I do that sometimes, when I very first am waking up, but once I fully wake up, I know what day it is. He's going all day thinking it's a certain day. That's a bit concerning. But on the other hand, he's not doing stuff on the computer/work all day like I am, to see things with the day of the week on it. It still seems like he should be able to figure it out early in the day. Plus, with our iphones, every time you open the home screen it says the day of the week, with the date. Not to mention, if he thought all day yesterday was Thursday, then why didn't he do laundry? - he always does laundry on Thursdays (and Sundays).
It's taking me all morning to get this post done! So, I guess I'll leave it at this for now.
A $7 firestick! Cannot beat that price. My tv is old and so is my stick, but I just restart it, yours is way more troublesome. I love that work program to help disadvantaged youth,amazing. As for DH for getting the days, I am sure it is just a random blip - but it is weird to have it happen a couple times in a short space of time!ReplyDelete
I'm sure it's just because dh doesn't have to do anything to keep track of the days. Not like with me keeping track of what needs to be done when for work or things like personal appointments,etc. The first time he did it I didn't think much of it, just laughed, but when he did it again this week.....Delete
Yeah, it is odd for him not to then say, oh yeah it is x day not y day! My retired aunt wakes up and she says she sometimes doesn't remember what day it is, and when she remembers she doesn't need to care LOL.Delete
Your dh doesn’t come across as forgetful in the worrying sense. Probably more to do with being engrossed in his work and not needing to remember the day because it isn’t necessary for him to do so. Unless he’s supposed to be doing the laundry!
I have a feeling it's just because he has gotten so busy every day working on the closets and loft projects that he's not thinking about what day it is, plus he's not been on his computer much either.Delete
