Getting Ready for our Anniversary

With our wedding anniversary just a couple of weeks away, I wanted to get something special for my husband to celebrate our five years together.  We were not going to have the chance to go on a long trip or anything, but we will have a night together at a hotel, and I wanted to make it special.

So I went online today to look at nurse costumes (one of his fantasies) and ordered one for the night.  Not only will it fulfil something that he has wanted for a long time, but it will make a very memorable fifth wedding anniversary.

I guess I'll have to try and come up with something better for the tenth anniversary...

Fixing my Sluggish Laptop

One of the things that I have noticed lately about my laptop is that it is running slow.  The biggest part of the problem is that I have many windows open at the same time and it just doesn't like it.

So, I have decided that today would be the day that I will order some more RAM for my laptop.  I made sure that it could take some more, and I bet that it will do better with 1 GB of memory compared to the 512 MB that it has now.

Since I have never done this before on a laptop, I hope that it comes with instructions, though I guess I will have to wait a week or so for it to get here.  I can't wait until it works fast again - when it is slow, I get frustrated very easily.

Fashionable Medical Jewelry

Since I have suffered from Asthma since I was a child, I have always worn a medical id bracelet to let paramedics know about it even if I am not conscious.  Though I have never had to use it, it is there, just in case something happens to me.

But I was never really fond of the bracelet - I always wanted something a little classier.  So, when I became an adult, I purchased a watch that bore the same information as my bracelet - but it looks a little more upscale and fits in with my fashion choices.

The Right Time to get Life Insurance

I really never considered getting life insurance until I was married and had kids.  You see, before that point, I had no one that depended on me for support and I had enough savings in the bank to take care of my funeral costs.

But once I had kids, that all changed.  They would need to be taken care of if I was gone, so I purchased a term life insurance policy to make sure that they were taken care of.

Though I hope I never need to use it, by having the right amount of life insurance in place, I sleep better at night knowing that my loved ones will be taken care of if I am gone.

Replacing the Network Cables in the Office

From time to time we need to replace the network cables in the office.  The fact of the matter is things wear out, and they need to be replaced from time to time.

So, the boss has sent me to the store to pickup some CAT5e cabling to replace the length of defective cabling.  I should get going before my shift is over - it needs to be done today.
