So it's a boring lonely evening tonight. selenite
is sick, and is feeling like a lump, and went to bed a couple of hours ago with nyquil. The kids are sick too. Maggie and Jamie aren't doing too bad, but they do have a lot of coughing. They don't seem to be running fevers anymore, though. They went to school Friday, and I may send them again tomorrow, still debating. Alanna came down sick last night, and that's been distressing - terrible barky coughs and wheezing. She was doing better this morning, but then not so great again this evening. I'm not able to get much done, because pretty much she wants to be in my arms constantly, and nursing a lot. That's good for her, though, so I'll just get through it.
Got my hair trimmed today. Kinda good for the ego. The stylist was exclaiming about how THICK my hair is, which is amazing, considering I've been in that postpartum hair-shedding phase, where I'm losing handfuls every day, and I've been feeling like it's terribly thinned out. We were discussing keeping long hair with kids, and she commented about it getting harder with age, but oh, she's a lot older than I am - I said really? I'm 38. She was 37, and shocked to hear that I'm 38. So yeah, overall good for the ego.
Also got properly sized for new nursing bras, and got one outfit for Alanna. I ordered a bunch more online. Tricky to find what I want, given the weird combo of her age and size. selenite
and I were talking about possibly getting me an mp3 player in encouragement of getting me and Alanna out on long walks, now that we're moving into fall weather here. He was offering to get me my Christmas present early. I talked about it some to fordprfct
, as my gadget-go-to-guy. Sounds like I probably want to go with an iPod.
So I'm dithering, do I go for the less expensive iPod shuffle, which is easy to use, yeah, and certainly holds enough for any walk I'd take, and hey, comes in PURPLE? Or do I figure I want this to be more of a total media storage thing, picturing it plugging into a future car audio set up, using it to take TV shows with me (not that I go out that much... but it could change...), and want to be able to take everything, and see if selenite
is willing to spring for an iPod classic? Shuffle would just clip to something... classic means hey, make a cozy (oh no, make me knit
For that matter, I wonder what the software interface is like? I use iTunes on the computer, but I've never interfaced it with any actual player.
Okay, people - advise me, please? What's your two cents on the matter?
