Growing up in Burrwood

I really like Google Reader


 

I just realized that it shows me when you guys update. Isn’t that peachy! I see I have 9 in there so I better get hopping. It’s sort of like our home page on spaces huh.

I’m feeling really bad for Bill. His leg and back are really bothering him and his MRI appoitment isn’t for 2 weeks yet. They haven’t set up therapy yet either like they said they were going too. I think that might help him once he gets into it. Maybe he should try a chiro.

I laughed so hard at Brody yesterday when I had him. I was in the living room and he was in the dining room playing with his toys when he came in and gave me a funny look. He then pulls down his trousers and starts to take off his diaper. I grabbed him up right away and it’s a darn good thing I did or I would have had quite the mess on the floor. Might be time to start potty training him don’t you think? He is only two and usually too young to potty train but it’s obvious he doesn’t like messy pants.

We have Dish Network and I was looking on their website and saw that they have a promotion price for a bit cheaper then what we are paying now. I decided to call them to see if we could get it at that price. The salesmen told me that it was just for new customers so I asked him why would a new customer get a better rate the one whose been with them for 6 years lol. Then he offered me movie channel packages like HBO and Show Time free for 3 months but I told him I don’t want them, I’ve had them before and don’t care for them and I’d prefer the cheaper rate. He then said that that’s all he could do for me so I politely asked to speak to a supervisor. I explained to him why I was calling and of course they put you on  hold so they can check your account. I must admit that I was on hold longer then I liked but I was determined and I’m sure they do that hoping you’ll get annoyed and hang up. WELL, they don’t know me very well do they lol. In the end I got the deal and am now a happy girl. Patience does pay off doesn’t it sometimes Smile

Wishing you all a great Wednesday. Go out and make it a good one Red lips

  1. That would make you move quickly to prevent potty time in the floor or carpet. He'll be easily trained I figure. Glad you got the good deal and yes you have to be persistent. Hoping that Bill's pain will leave.

  2. I'm really glad to see you're using and liking Google Reader. I use it for all kinds of things and wouldn't know what to do without it.

    Sorry that Bill has to wait so long for the MRI. That's just wrong!

    I'll remember that with Dish Network. We have Direct and could always accept a discount or something from them. That's another thing I'd have a hard time living without.

  4. I've never used Google Reader but I will certainly look into it.
    I have Time Warner cable (basic TV) for my TV and computer and I really like it. Especially since my wife works from home and her company pays for the computer part of it. lol. Plus, they perform any repairs for free and are constantly upgrading the cables and such. Again for free.

    I hope your hubby gets to feeling better very soon. I'm all too familiar with legs and backs... and feet!

    Well, keep an eye on Brody. Two year-olds are faster than they look!
    Take care now,
    Bob
