So I figured out how to close my apps

First I labeled this “things that suck” meaning me. I suck lol. I finally figured out how to close my app and I can’t believe I didn’t figure it out at first.

The first demo told me to tap the button and the screen would shake. Then a minus sign would pop up on the app and that’s how you close it. That definitely works on the 4 and maybe 5 but not 5C. Then it said pause the music app, tap home once then tap home twice and swipe the app up. Well yes and no. There are 2 pics for each open app. A small one at the bottom (which you close in most other versions) that is just a logo for the app. Then another larger app which is a pic of the page that you just closed. You don’t swipe the logo, you swipe the actual picture.

Duh! I feel like a dunce now. But on the bright side, I now know how to close these apps.

Apps apps and more apps

I’m looking for new apps to add to my phone. My old phone had such a low memory that I couldn’t really add more than 5-7 apps at a time. Then if they would all need to be updated at the same time, my phone would tap out. It would have to be hard reset and everything.

With this phone I have several apps but I did download the usual suspects including Pandora, IHeart Radio, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook. Now I’m trying to decide if there are any others that I want on my phone. I do want a banking app just to make things easier but I’m not sure about anything else.

What apps are on your phone?

My first problem with my new phone

It’s not a big problem, more of a slight annoyance actually and it has to do with my apps. I can’t figure out how to turn them completely off.

It’s driving me crazy. They have instructions for the 5 and 5S but not the 5C. I know the 5 instructions work because it’s the same as what I have on my Ipad Mini. I know the 5S instructions work because my friend has that phone. But there is nothing for the 5C. It does tell me to pause the app then tap once to get to the home screen. Then tap twice and the app technically stops.

I know the app is still running though. Yesterday even after being paused for over 8 hours, the app was in the exact same spot. I know I wouldn’t have this problem with eldermark software. I can’t understand why there isn’t a exit button on the app or something to make it easier to end instead of guessing as to whether the app is still running.

We’re not going to even talk about the fact that it’s killing my poor data. Ugh.

I finally got my phone

Yay! I’m so happy because my old phone was slow and clunky. While I loved it to death, it was time to go because it was almost literally dead. It had a very small memory and was constantly needing to be hard-reset. That sucks because I always lost most of my apps and all of my text messages.

This phone is slightly longer but much lighter than my old phone. The first time I picked it up I could feel the difference. What’s cool, to me at least, is that I can put all of my old apps on this phone plus there is still room for more! It holds about 20 apps per page so I have a long way to go before I fill up another screen .

All in all I’m pretty happy. Now I just need to pay for the phone and I’ll be really happy!

I woke up 4 times during the night

Now I am so sleepy. The last time I woke up I thought it was time to get up but it was only 4:30AM. Geesh… I did fall back to sleep but I am so tired right now.

I just went into the break room to get my second cup of coffee of the day. After pouring creamer into my cup, instead of putting it back on the table, I almost threw it in the trash. I caught myself at the last minute and put it on the table where it belonged.

I’m supposed to go out tonight and wash a load of clothes. I have a feeling that nothing will get done and I’ll end up taking a nap when I get home. I need a better sleep schedule.

My project is finally done

I feel like I’ve been working on it forever. I finished up half of it yesterday and I’ll do the other half today. On the plus side, I can just copy, paste and move things around a bit on today’s portion so things will go by much faster.

Now I have another pile of stuff to start. I need to get a better handle on this stuff to keep my desk clear. Once you fall behind, there seems to be no catching up. Luckily we are not micro-managed to death in this department so I don’t have anyone breathing down my neck.

It will all get done eventually, whenever that is.

I need to move

I am just so ready to go it’s not even funny. Last night I was sitting in my living room and I noticed that there was a breeze coming between the blinds.

Now I knew the windows were closed so I couldn’t figure out where the air was coming from. I pulled back the blinds and the window is broken. A small piece of glass had fallen out and the window was totally open. Now I have to call the maintenance man and have a new window pane put in.

It didn’t help that I was browsing on the internet earlier yesterday afternoon and saw some gorgeous homes for sale. It didn’t even matter to me that they were in another state. At this point I think that may even be preferable. Especially since the homes were in Florida which is pretty much my dream destination.

I really need to stop procrastinating and get on the ball with my moving plans. I am so ready to go.

It’s Opening Day!!

I usually take off on opening day but the past 2 years have been a doozy to say the least.

I didn’t take off last year because I was still fairly new to my department and I didn’t feel comfortable taking the day off. I didn’t take off this year because it slipped my mind. Also I was so exhausted that I took a sick day last Friday. So it wasn’t like I could call in today and take another day off. Now if I had scheduled it in advance, I would have been good.

Oh well, I’ll still get to see at least one or two games when I get home from work. Woohoo!!!! Let’s GO Bucs!!!

Things are going from bad to worse

I thought I would be happy because a part of my project is coming to an end today. Yay right? Yeah well, not so fast. It turns out that there is another account that has the same problem so I have to do the same thing to get that one fixed.

These problems have to be fixed and as soon as possible. Not only will I not get a day off again this week but I probably won’t have one until at least the middle of next week.

I just want to stay home and sleep :-(

This project is never-ending

I feel like I’ll never get done with it. I worked on it all day Thursday and Friday. Now I’m starting it today. I anticipate that I’ll work on it until at least Wednesday. Every day it seems to get pushed back another day because there is just so much information.

Meanwhile, I can’t take a day off of work because I need to finish this up. I’m not going anywhere or doing anything either, I just want a chill day off of work.

Good luck with that happening. Ugh!
