I'm back

Hi! I feel like I'm back in the land of the living. Yesterday's time off did me a world of good. I went to the dermatologist in the morning for a follow-up. Boy does that man like his liquid nitrogen. That was fine with me. He finished 'cleaning me up.' I came home, turned on my laptop and indulged in online time all day. The 2 Verizon workers got here at a decent time and stayed for hours. They were baffled by my problem. It was interesting to watch them troubleshoot. They were on their cells with tech support all the while. In the end, they came up with a round-about way for me to use my DVR. It's a temporary fix. I will say that all 5 of the Verizon workers who have been here have been courteous and hard-working and have done all they could to fix the problem. They've replaced 4 sets of set top cable boxes in the last week. Every show I've managed to record has been lost as each box was replaced, including Wednesday's American Idol that I really wanted to see. The others I can find online or on demand, but not FOX. Oh well. On an ironical note, I just sped through last night's results show, deleted it, watched a minute of the Today show, and the set top box shut itself off. Then turned back on. I swear it's possessed.

Not much else going on. Things are OK here. The sun is trying to shine through the fog. The trees are in bud and the spring flowers are starting to bloom. Life is good.

Feel better soon and I hope the cable guys finally find the problem.

My daughter gets the cable guys to really redo the whole house. Last time they rewired the whole place inside and out. I still have issues.

Have a fun weekend and get some rest.

Cheryl, I hope you're feeling better! I know how awful it is to be really sick and still have to work and take care of all the "daily" stuff. And thank you so much for your donation! When I saw the comment in the sponsor section of my webpage, it took me a minute to make the connection, but then I was completely blown away. I can't begin to explain how much I appreciate it!

Glad you're feeling better. The sun did finally poke through this morning and it's just beautiful out. I'm getting out in my car today!

Cheryl, so glad you are better! Have you tried to find IDOL on You Tube???

Pray for me today, I have a meeting with TC's principal, and I am feeling very emotional.

What a mystery! Where's Sherlock Holmes when you need him? Maybe MacGyver (sp?) would be better!
Glad you're feeling better. I'm doing okay, too. Will wash my hair and then maybe head out to gas up the car and maybe stop in at TJ's.

I'm glad you're feeling better. That tech problem does sound so weird.

Ooh, just had a thought. Could it be that a neighbor recently subscribed to the service and was mistakenly given the same remote code? That happened to us when we had satellite. We and our neighbor kept turning each other's sets on and off till the service people gave us a new code for our remote. Call and ask if it could be something like that.

I'm so happy you are feeling better. It has hit so many people hard this year...it's hard to keep going when all you want to do is lay down..ugh, I know.

I feel for you and your technical issues. I have had some kind of problem like that forever, it seems, altho right now, everything is working, so I should probably shut UP.

They will figure it out...don't you just love it when they tell you they have no idea WHY it's all messed up and look at you like you have two heads?

Hang in friend. Have a wonderful weekend. Thank you so much for caring about me.....Hugs. :)
