Yesterday can GO TO HELL! And so can today so far, for that matter.

1. Yesterday Chris was hit by an inattentive teenager on his way to work. He's fine, no one was hurt. But we're down to one car while the insurance companies duke it out and decide who gets to pay for a rental while the damage is repaired. There are weeks when taking Jonah to school & going to the grocery are my only outings. But of course, when the option to leave the house no longer exists, I suddenly feel stir crazy and have all these things I need to do. :/

2. I've been having trouble with my laptop battery not wanting to hold a charge as long. Also, for some reason I'm no longer getting a warning before it just cuts off. Of course all those improper shut downs have taken a toll on my machine and now Windows is damaged and won't boot up, not even in safe mode. Luckily, there's an Ubuntu install on there too, and it does boot just fine and my data appears to be fine. But none of my programs are installed over there and all that pain in the ass garbage I'm going to have to go through to set everything back up. I've been meaning to switch over to Ubuntu anyway, I've just been lazy about out because I dread doing this crap. I know it'll be better and faster and all because the Windows install is the bloated factory install from 3 years ago. But I needed to do shit today, not mess with this junk. D:

3. Chris went out to the car this morning to go to work and noticed a door open and the middle console and glove box open. I'm pretty sure my old 6 year old (or older) iPod that's been broken for 5 years or more was in the console and is now gone. Joke's on them I guess, but I still think we should report it in case there are other break ins in the area. I think we'll start locking our doors, too. Add a new keyless entry to our list of car expenses. >:[

4. Minor but still frustrating, as I was writing this, my phone hard locked. :/

However, I'm thankful we fared well through the storms last night. And at least the would-be thief struck after all the storms passed so the car isn't full of water or anything. I guess we're lucky they didn't bother to damage anything or vandalize it when they didn't find much worth stealing, too. Surely they could tell that was an old iPod. Chris and I sort of laughed it off this morning because KARMA MOTHERFUCKERS! But it sort of pisses me off in principle.

Well off to reaquaint myself with Ubuntu. Wheee!
