New Family Members

So Ryan hasn’t met our new fellas but we now have two more fishees.  We are still working on the names, going for late 80’s-90’s sitcom character names.  Right now we have Mr. Belvedere;

We also started a flower and vegetable garden.  We have so many beautiful flowers blooming and vegetables sprouting… oh how much fun.  Right now they are living in our living room but once we get some more reliably good weather, they’ll live on our giant balcony.  Hip hip hooray.

I’m Sick and Tired of…

Being sick and tired.

I went to urgent care today.  For about two weeks I’ve have been dealing with what I thought was a cold.  I got my flu shot this year so I wouldn’t have to worry about getting sick… Lull and behold, I have bronchitis.

Are you kidding me?  Ugh.  Luckily I caught it before it got too bad

So anyways, while I was waiting to get my four RX’s filled, I got a new aquarium for my goldfish with a nice filter and all that jazz.  The first aquarium I bought today had a leak so I had to return it.  I give major props to Columbia Pet Center.  They are incredibly knowledgeable about all things pet related and seem to care a great deal for their creatures, large and small.

The guy who helped me out there did a wonderful job of making me feel comfortable with my purchase of an aquarium (at $15 less than the other pet store) and power-wheel bio filter.  My goldfish is just loving his new space, ten times larger.

In a month they will test my water and let me know if I’m ready for any plants or other fish.  How professional.  PetCo or Pet’s Mart would sell me anything just to make a sell, never-mind the health of the fish.  Kevin brought me to this place a few years ago, thanks Kevin!

I also went to Best Buy to get yet another 1tb external hard drive.  I now have over 1.5tb of data on my iMac.  My external 1tb filled up with my iTunes library and Time Machine backups.  At first I had some trouble with my new drive but it seems to be working out just fine right now.  I have backed up my laptop and am currently moving the old Time Machine backups to the new drive.

It’s going to take a while…  Over 7 million files and counting?  I truly am a media whore.

UPDATE: I am now at over 10,000,000 files.  Holy crap.

UPDATE: It is still counting up after over seven hours and more than 29,000,000 files.  Something just isn’t right here.  There just can’t be that many Time Machine backups.
