God Must Not Want Me To Have...

high speed Internet. What else should I have expected on Friday the Thirteenth.


The satellite Internet guys didn't show up this morning. I didn't even get a call that they weren't coming. They were supposed to be here between 8:00 and noon. So I waited until 1:00 and called to find out what was going on. They started giving me the run around and then said they would reschedule. I quickly told them that they would NOT reschedule, they would cancel my order. They did. So I proceeded to call the company back to talk to a supervisor to lodge a complaint. They had cancelled alright but didn't bother to issue a refund on my payment for the installation. It was all I could do to keep from using a LOT of foul words with this company. They knew I was angry but I kept it clean. (Although thinking back, when the guy wanted to reschedule I did tell him he could "stuff it.") Anyway the supervisor was very apologetic and issued a refund on my credit card for the installation charge and gave me a discount on my next months satellite TV bill for my inconvenience. I guess I just have to put up with dial up Internet for the rest of my life. I know what I can do!!! I can send our new president a letter and ask him to get high speed in my area. He thinks all Americans should have high speed or DSL so maybe if I got him on board I could get my phone service to put it in. Sound like a plan to you?

Yesterday was one of those eating days. I just couldn't get satisfied or full. At least I kept it healthy (except for some Cheerio's cheese snack mix). Still no exercise. Just can't make myself get off my lazy butt.

Hope you have a healthy and happy weekend.

Sounds like a plan to me. Doesn't he have his own website. Something.gov HA!!LOL!! Bless your heart. What a pain in the _ _ _ _.

You better get off the couch or Richard Simons and his little running shorts will jog right up the mountain and holler at you. I don't know, he is getting pretty old, he might not be able to get up the mountain. YEP! I'm full of it this afternoon.

In the big picture, cheetos and some extra food (healthy) won't make a difference. Sometimes it is worse if you are in the hunger mode and end up obsessing about food- you have to do what it right for yourself!

We had alot of scary wind here too, Texas, but none of the rain we so desperately need. If i could i'd offer to help get you out the door for a walk. LOL! Exercising by myself is still one of the hardest lifestyles changes i've had to make.But hey, you lost a pound. Rejoice!!! Your doing great! Jinx

I'm sorry to hear about your woes with the internet satelite people! (we had problems with the intenet side of things when we had internet through a satelite...so it's not just you!)

Back away from the snack mix! :):)
(I had one of those days last week...crunch,crunch,crunch!)

Sorry about the internet. Maybe another option will present itself.
