Call Me MacGyver

I'm hard on my stuff.  I don't mean to be, but I am.  I guess I fall into the work hard/play hard category.  (or at least that's what I'm telling myself.)  It's something I didn't mean to pass onto the chicks, but I did.  Ugh, can we have anything around here that's not chipped or broken?  Feel free to giggle at the pic on the left, because it's pretty funny when you see it for the first time.

Speaking of chipped or broken stuff...I have a love/hate relationship with my fitbit.  It's great because I roughly know how many steps I take a day & the amount of calories I burn.  I'm super competitive and it allows me to compete against others while making me get off my booty to do it.  At my age I need all the exercise I can get.  The muscles are not holding their tone as long as they used to, and they have to be worked pretty hard.  My first fitbit I had wouldn't keep a charge after a few months so the company sent me a replacement.  It was pretty cool.  I've had this one about 6 months, and in true to me form, I have cracked the back panel.

I didn't notice the crack in my fitbit until I tried to recharge it.  It wouldn't charge at all, and when I checked it the back came right off.  Boo.  I was going through my mind about how to fix the back of my watch when I remembered I had some black duct tape.  Love me some duct tape.  I think you can fix just about anything with a screwdriver and duct tape.  I figured duct tape was better than super glue or hot glue.  I know it looks hilarious, but I can't justify buying a new one when this one works just fine in spite of the crack.  :)  I wore it to a high intensity dance class yesterday & the duct tape held, so I think I'm good to go.  If the tape comes off at some point I'll just put some new tape on it.  Just call me MacGyer.  If you need something fixed let me know & I'll come over with my screwdriver & duct tape.

Celebrating 12K steps today & counting!
