Comcast strikes again

Knowing that retirement was in our immediate future, I canceled Comcast service in the city effective January 3rd.

Our bill came in the mail.Cancel? Us? Obviously not, since we received a bill at full price. What part of discontinue my service don’t you understand Comcast?You gave me directions on how to take the modems to a UPS store to get them to you?

Now my body is aching from moving prep and I am on wait for a customer service representative for Comcast for at least 10 minutes.

**sigh**

Someone wake me when it’s time to go to bed, ok?

Going home again

Jim and I had dinner with two of our old friends from our old neighborhood. It was nice to be with them and their fantastic kids: their youngest is my godson Frankie.

Even though we have been off the street for a year and a half, sometimes,well, it’s like you have never left.The only difference is the kids have gotten bigger.We got a wonderful gift from them: they framed two prints of them, one with me, the other with Zush and gave them to us for the new house.We sat and talked and it was so nice. It makes you wish the times could be rolled back to the day.

Then when we left them, we stopped at another neighbor and saw their two girls, who are growing like weeds.Still, we fell into our old chat, and it was great.

I will miss them-good friends are hard to come by.

Football…Packer Football

Yes, right now, technically, I am a Philadelphian.

I am watching the Green Bay Packers on tv.

My oldest nephew on the east coast, Matthias, grew up a devout Packer fan thanks to my brother and his wife sending their godson, Matt, Christmas and birthday Packer gifts.

Now, I have to admit that the Eagles were kind of exciting this year, but fizzled out at the end.Being a Philadelphian, I am used to the disappointment.

This Aaron Rodgers,though,looked like he was having fun playing today. He had a messed up calf, then he goes off the field in the cart. Hearts sink. Out comes Rodgers a little later.

Joe Buck just said that” It’s a well-run machine here in Green Bay.”

I agree!

Baking again

I rearranged my new pantry today and as a result, I’m making cookies tonight to quiet my mind.After they are done, then I’ll sit and have a nice cup of tea.

I just didn’t make as many cookies as I intended do, as with bringing things down from the house, well, it takes time.So tonight I have a little bit of quiet time, so I have an Axis special on TV about the group Queen. Good music to bake by.

A quiet Saturday night with my family. ..All is good!

Hot Tea

I am a coffee girl.

That is a straight away statement.

As I type this, though, I have a cup of tea with me.

Sometimes, I feel the need to warm my self with some tea at night.It brings me back to my brother and my Mom having a big mug of hot sweet tea to make the world right again. I am typing away and my hip is acting up and this is my kick back before I go take a hot shower.It is funny how the image of the sweet ,hot cup of tea just embraces me with warmth,

Oh, no worries.Coffee will be back in the morning.

Tonight?

Tea time.

Merry Christmas to all

We actually socialized tonight with an old neighbor of ours tonight-we were invited to the family house for their Christmas party.

It is odd for us to actually be up at 11PM, without driving up from Undisclosed being involved. We have to get up tomorrow morning for Mass and then more festivities and missing people who aren’t here to celebrate Christmas with us anymore.Thank God for memories.

Here’s hoping your Christmas is merry and bright, or whatever seasonal holiday you might actually be celebrating.Be safe, enjoy the holiday and the folks you are with.

Be happy!
