iPhone 6 Case

September 19th, 2014 No comments

I ran out to the AT&T store tonight to look at cases since I was afraid to take my new phone out of my pocket (which thankfully, it still fits inside) otherwise. I ended up buying the tough case by Case Mate in purple (naturally).


It doesn’t add much extra weight or thickness which is perfect. It’s actually the most expensive iPhone case I’ve ever purchased at $30 but it was well worth it to protect my $400 phone!

I’m loving the new screen size and features of iOS 8 so far too. I haven’t been able to test out the camera yet, though, because traditionally the first photo I always take with my new iPhone is of Joe and he got home late. So tomorrow I’ll be testing it out on the rats taking photos and videos in natural light.

iPhone 6 Has Arrived

September 19th, 2014 No comments

It’s here! Just went I stopped jumping up and checking the door after every sound I heard, the UPS man arrived with my new phone. I was actually playing Angry Birds Star Wars II on my 4S (had just downloaded it) when I was scared by him ringing the doorbell and simultaneously knocking on the door.


This photo was taken with the 4S and is grainy. I hear the new phone’s camera will be much better. I sure hope so!


First impression – this thing is tall! It’s going to take some getting used to. Right now I’m impatiently waiting for the darn thing to finish restoring from my 4S backup so I can play with the new settings. Come on, iTunes!

Winston on Cute Overload

My former rat, Winston, was featured on Cute Overload last month!


I miss this cutie. All he ever wanted to do was cuddle with me.

Sprained Paw?

September 19th, 2014 No comments

Last night I noticed that Marshmallow won’t put any weight on his right front paw and he holds it up with his fingers curled in. It looks like it could be just slightly swollen, but other than that there’s no obvious injury. He still uses the paw to clean himself and hold food, but won’t walk on it. He also doesn’t squeak or anything when I touch it, so I’m not sure what’s wrong. He was fine on Wednesday when I let him run around, so my guess is he either sprained it jumping down from his spacepod (which I’ve since flipped over so it’s free-standing on the ground) or he was bitten by a bug. I’ll be keeping a close eye on it so that if it gets worse I can take him a vet. If it’s just sprain it should heal on it’s own. Poor Marshmallow.

It’s Getting Cold In Here

September 17th, 2014 2 comments

…so put on all your clothes. And add some more. And still feel cold.

I forgot that even though I love fall I really hate the cooler weather. I run cold as it is. And even though it’s just barely below 70 degrees out, my office is freezing (and the air kept turning on just when I’d get a little comfortable). I’ll be breaking out my fuzzy winter boots and wearing them to work tomorrow since two pairs of socks with sneakers wasn’t cutting it today. I wish they would just let me use space heater. Even with layers on, my legs and feet get colder as the day goes on from the lack of movement. I’m just happy I only have to be there three days a week.

Speaking of, one more day and it’s my weekend! Friday I will be impatiently waiting for UPS to deliver my iPhone. I really hope they come early, but last time I ordered an iPhone it was delivered at 2 PM. I guess that’s better than when we first moved here and UPS would always deliver around 7 PM!
