Random Thoughts Thursday 156

  • Gah, it’s hard to believe all of the holiday celebrations start so soon! Who else has something going on every week until the end of the year?
  • Speaking of holiday celebrations, remember when I said I hate looking for restaurants? Guess who got voluntold to plan a party for thirty-five people? SO not happy about that. Especially that I have to get all the options together by end of the day tomorrow. And was just told to do it yesterday.
  • When Mom and I were at NeoCon, we didn’t have time to see everything, so we only went to showrooms I needed to visit for work, and showrooms with awesome giveaways (ha). Mom insisted on going in to one that didn’t interest me, but then came out with this lunch bag and I decided to get one too. And… I freaking love it. It’s the only lunch bag I’ve ever had that fits all my food in it. So, thank you, Mom, for going in to that small showroom I said “no” to. Ha ha.

  • Blah. Garmin Connect changed the “last 12 months” display from a line chart showing number of activities to a bar chart showing overall mileage by activity and me no likely. I referenced the line chart often to compare the amount of my current month’s activities to the previous month’s (I used it as motivation!). I can’t see that information anymore, since it’s in miles. And swimming basically disappears!

  • Ha ha ha, look what found its way back to my house! The MBP Bracelet went back and forth between mom and Christina, and then came my way. I was NOT surprised to see it in this package. Heh, package. (Isn’t that an adorable cat bed it’s resting on though?!)

    I hadn’t noticed that on the desktop Garmin connect, but the update to the mobile version is harder for me to find my run on; what little brains I have are extra depleted after a long run, so technology shouldn’t be challenging at that point!

    LOL on that bracelet coming back. Super cute kitty bed, though!

      It’s not just you – I had to do a google search to figure out where the revised Garmin Connect app put something the other day! It’s not intuitive! (I was looking for movement by day which used to be on the main page/dashboard but is now under calendar). And it doesn’t help when your brain is mush after a run.

      It’s so cute! My snis finds the best stuff. Khali was sniffing it out last night. I bet she’ll use it soon.

    I am trying to embrace some of the new changes with Garmin. Keyword…trying. 🙂

    I’d probably be more booked up for the holidays if I knew more than one person within a 100 mile radius 🙂 I AM having a hard time believing it’s almost Thanksgiving already! This year has just flown by.

  4. I feel you on the holiday plans. My last totally free weekend from now until 2018 was the weekend of Halloween. I currently have one obligation-free weekend in December, but I expect that that will end up getting booked with something (and it’s only obligation free on a technicality – it’s the same weekend Star Wars comes out, but I’m going Thursday night with a group of people, so that’s not *officially* the weekend). I enjoy the holidays, but man, they are EXHAUSTING.

      It totally will get booked, you know it! That is fun you are going on Thursday. I did for The Force Awakens. I am waiting for Saturday night for this one.

      I need more free weekends! Hopefully we’ll have quiet Januarys 😉

    Ah! The cats are cute!
    Garmin has made so many little changes lately, it is getting annoying…and mine wouldn’t sync bluetooth for a few weeks at all, then it started working again ,nw it is back to not syncing.
