Two days ago James broke is week old Nexus 4 phone. This has caused us to have to buy him an insurance for it and pay a deductible that all ended up costing round about $200. This gives us two years of coverage on the phone and the fixing of the phone.
Well, not much to be done about that. So…no need to get upset. When you think about it there are much worse things that could have happened. We are taking the phone to get its screen replaced in a cell phone repair shop right here in this town and the insurance only requires a $100 deductible for smart phone repairs. (The insurance is SquareTrade by the way. It is a great company.)
We planned a going away party for my family the night before we leave. That should be really nice. We have just been taking things off of our to do list.
We acquired thermals and good socks for both of us at Walmart. They were really affordable. I found something interesting though! There are no Walmarts on the Peninsula that we will be living on! Just K-Marts. This is super interesting to me because all of the K-Marts in this town have been run out by Walmart.
Either way, I do prefer shopping at locally owned stores over corporate chains. I just like supporting Small Business owners. My social media for small businesses company has shown me all of the struggles that all locally owned businesses are going through because of stores like Walmart and K-mart that can afford to have all items at lower prices. I’m hoping it will be a little different in Kenai because it is just a small town with small businesses. Here in Hendersonville there is just isn’t an affordable place to get things other than corporate stores. It honestly kinda sucks.
So, yeah. Not much of anything new has happened. Just regular everyday things. The nice thing is that I have James to spend my days with which makes doing everyday things actually kind of pleasant. I am very thankful for that.
Anyways! Onwards with this adventure!
