Talking, talking, talking.

I miss having a blog I like, I really do.

I miss being able to just sit down and write without having to explain things.

I’m wearing my new tinted glasses. They’re not rose colored. Mine are definitely amber. From what I read, the darker the tint the more amber they will become. I’m not having any trouble with the Amber portion, I am having trouble with the placement of my bi-focal. I can’t find the mid-point which makes it difficult to see my computer monitor. Hopefully it will just take a few days to adust to the new line-up. I am finding it easier to read so yay, I guess, for the doctor increasing my reading prescription. Every new pair of lenses is a little bit different in how they sit on your face. I think your brain adjusts pretty quickly and usually after about a week you don’t even notice anymore that you’re shifting your eyes to use the perfect portion of the lens.

Last night was our bi-weekly Petanque night. It was SO cold! People were cancelling so fast! We ended up with six people there. We played one game and then four of us went out to dinner. It was very nice. My katy joined us for dinner and then Ben’s friend also joined us. There was a lot of laughing. I also got one of the players’, Emily, phone number so we don’t lose track of her. And Bens on my facebook now so we don’t lose track of him. It’s funny how people who are so different can find enough in common to laugh. I swear Ben talked about my absent sister more than anything else.

I found my husband the perfect coat today and ordered it for him. Well first I sent him a picture and said I would have ordered it had I known what size he wanted. He replied immediately with the size.



We have our own version of the don’t ask – don’t tell policy. He doesn’t ask how much something like that costs and I make sure to not show him the price so he can get what he really wants.

Here is my favorite part of my 60 minute chat conversation with AT&T to upgrade my DSL.
Kathy S.: Thank you for providing me with your address. You mentioned ordering Internet only. I’d also like to let you know we offer discounts on monthly services and up-front costs when you order other AT&T products. I would be happy to compare what your package pricing would be if you were to add voice and/or TV to your bundle.
Tracy Murray: I am not interested in anything but DSL
Kathy S.: Great! Which channels do you or your family like to watch?
Tracy Murray: On DSL? None.

The good news is that if we can successfully take care of our upgrade the cost will, for the first year, be less than what we pay currently and starting year #2 it will be only $5.00 more a month. I hope this will also take care of our degrading wifi problem.


 Much adventure tomorrow.
