I forgot to mention the issue with my Nook yesterday. I had a Nook which is my only form of reading anything because Tiara cuts up every book and magazine in her path and I lost it during Christmas break. It was really old and rather outdated but it worked fine. It was Trinity’s and she never used so she said I could have it. I took it to the gym and left it on the Elliptical machine. I was so stressed about leaving my phone on the machine, I forgot the Nook.
Truth be told I haven’t been on an Elliptical machine in a very long time and I was a little woozy and dazed when I got off. I felt like I had been on a boat in rough seas and couldn’t walk straight. My legs felt like Gumby.
As soon as I got home I realized what I had done and called the gym. Can you believe no one turned it in? I was pretty surprised. If it was an Ipad, a new Kindle Fire or any type of updated tablet I could see someone wanting to keep it but an old Nook? Luckily I didn’t have a credit card linked to it so they couldn’t buy anything, but really? So sad.
The next week, I found a platinum American Express card on the sidewalk on Balboa Island last week and almost walked past it. I looked at my friend and said “I better pick it or someone else may, and who knows what they will do with it?” She agreed, so I grabbed it and put it in my bag. When I got home I called American Express to let them know I had found it but the owner had already called and cancelled the card so they didn’t need it back.
I was just sitting in my car waiting to walk in and pick up Trinity from school and the new Nook I bought on sale for $59 isn’t working. I really wanted the new one with the light but decided twice the price wasn’t worth it. I actually felt really guilty buying myself a new one after I had lost the old one, but I need to read. If I borrow books from the library they get torn up and then I have to pay to replace them. I was feeling so guilty I told Lou about my purchase. I never tell him what I buy or don’t buy because I don’t really buy much more than food, wine and stuff for the girls. He just laughed and said “Who cares? It’s fine. Stop worrying about it.”
Oh, I just plugged it in and apparently the battery was low, which is why it wasn’t working. This isn’t good. The old Nook would last for weeks at a time without me ever charging it. This new one doesn’t appear to be as good. Bummer.
Oh well, enough complaining, time to drive Trinity to her basketball game.
