Month is Winding Down

March 26th, 2010 at 04:22 pm

I'm now the mother of a teenager. Who bought an ipod. That won't stay charged! Ugh. Of course, she's big time disappointed and frustrated. Target says I can exchange for the same thing. I hope that is the case when I show up at the store.

My sister was in town for a couple days. Spending was minimal. I bought her a coffee and a snack. Otherwise we ate the food on hand, watched a netflix video that arrived, used my gym without a guest fee. She bought fabric, with a 40% off coupon I had, and we made a curtain for her bathroom. She only spent $13. It will look great!

We have $165 left in the checking account to last through the end of the month. I will need to buy groceries on Sunday. One daughter wants to her hair cut shorter again. I was just a month ago she had five inches cut off!! I think we can make it.

Netflix is sending a disk that should allow us to stream instant watch movies directly through our Wii system. That will open up easier viewing of movies for us. I'm looking forward to that.

    Try letting the ipod run completely down and then fully charge it for like 8 hours. Then let it run fully down again. Charge again. You should be good to go. Ipods tend to be finicky when they are over or under charged but it's usually easy to get them back on track. One thing I learned the hard way is iDocks do charge them and can overcharge them if you leave it on the iDock too long.

    blackdiamond...thanks for the advice. I charged it this morning until it said charged, which took only hours. I'm now running it continuously to see how it works. It's only been 2.5 hours and the charge is nearly half gone. I will try your method before exchanging it. Thanks again!

    Invest in some good haircutting scissors! My DH cuts my hair in a blunt cut. Saves big money. Of course that doesn't work for daughters who want layered looks......
