mini day

May 6th, 2006 at 09:46 pm

walked with mom for 55 min

Took my niece to Village Inn for breakfast. Spent $16.18

Went to King Sooper's for contact paper for floor of miniature room. $4.25. Also bought the latest John Sandford paperback, Broken Prey, for 25% off. Spent $8.

Went to Subway for lunch. $9.78

Spent 4 hours on the computer trying to get the 3 free music downloads I got with each tube of Aquafresh toothpaste. I think they make this as aggravating as possible so you don't redeem these. First you have to download their software to download the music. It took 20 minutes, ridiculous with DSL. Then you had to reboot your computer. Then you had to log back in to Aquafresh and get your numbers redeemed to get the code, then you had to go the music place and register there and log in there and get another code to use. Finally you got to pick 3 songs. Once you did that, you could download them. Another 30 - 40 minutes to download the 3 songs.

I had 3 sets of 3. On the last set of 3 my niece couldn't think of any more songs she wanted and the system timed out and logged us off of the music place. When I logged back in it said I had already redeemed the codes. Stinks!!!

The whole thing was extremely frustrating. 4 hours wasted in my opinion. But I guess my niece is happy with the 6 songs she did get.

We spent the rest of the day working on our miniature room project. Currently we are working on two dorm rooms. Same furniture, walls and floors in each room. One room will belong to a neat and proper girl and the other room belongs to a messy and unconventional girl. She's very excited about the project.

After I took her home, stopped at mom's to walk and they invited me for tacos and then I stayed and played games. Now I am exhausted and can't wait to go to bed Smile
