Making Do


Good morning and happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was as busy as ever, but marvelous nonetheless.

First things first: my apologies for the somewhat sporadic blogging lately. Last Tuesday, after a long day of class, my laptop simply wouldn’t turn on. With a crashed computer, all thoughts of a Thursday blog post fell by the wayside. Luckily, I had my WIAW post prepared ahead of time, so I made sure to post while I was at school.

Wednesday night, I made the hour-long trip to BestBuy to replace my computer. Excitedly back at home with my new laptop in hand, I was disappointed to learn that there was a device issue with the computer preventing me from getting wireless Internet access.

Bad Luck-2, Rebecca- 0.

After about 2 hours on the phone with the Sony customer service rep (and a missed class), I was told I would receive a new USB device in the mail that should help with the Internet access. For the next “3-5 Business Days,” I’m at the mercy of an Ethernet cord, or whenever I can get Internet at school.

For now, I’m “making do” and posting whenever I get Internet access, so I figured I’d sneak in a Marvelous Monday post while I can.

Aside from my spotty Internet access, I managed to have a little fun this weekend. I kicked off Saturday morning with a good workout:


20 minutes run at 7.5 mph

2 x 15 Bicep curls

2 x 15 Tricep kickbacks, each side

2 x 10 Lateral raises

2 x 15 Bicep curls, bottom-half, each side

Saturday night, my friends and I headed to our favorite Mexican place in town, and I got the most fantastic tacos—corn tortillas stuffed with shrimp, lettuce, pico de gallo, and cheese. I feel like fish tacos are much more common than shrimp, but I’m a huge shrimp fan, so I was delighted to see them on the menu! Sadly, as with most of my restaurant meals, I didn’t get a picture—not quite comfortable with whipping out the camera at restaurants. But, I can assure you that they were delicious.

Sunday was perfectly relaxing. Not having 24/7 Internet access has been somewhat refreshing. I woke up, did laundry, and headed to the library. When I had Internet at school, I was so much more focused on my work than I would have been working at home.

This morning, I’m hoping to sneak in a workout. Then it’s class, with a presentation on the agenda. I hope your week gets off to a fabulous start!

Do you find that you have bad luck with technology?

What’s your favorite thing to order at Mexican restaurants?

  1. Hate technology. You’d think in this year of age technology problems just wouldn’t exist, Ha Ha!

    To answer your question: Favorite thing to order @ Mexican restaurants (besides the complimentary chips & salsa), would be a margarita and fish tacos.

  2. I hate laptops sooo bad!! Mine is playing up like crazy but I don’t have the money to get a new one (which would be cheaper than paying for it to be fixed!) I honestly have the worst luck with technology, we had a giant Halloween party the other weekend and of course the next morning when I went to clean the house and the giant pile of dishes of course the dishwasher died!!! I hate whipping out a camera to take meals at a restaurant, I never do! The only meal pictures are always home cooked.
    My sisters and I go to our favourite Mexican restaurant every couple of months and we always order the same thing, the dips to share and 2 jugs of margaritas!! Craving Mexican now ha ha!
    I found your blog through the link up and I am super glad that I did!
    Love Gi xx
