Well, I waited for the cable man and he never came yesterday as per the appointment scheduled by Kelly. I finally called and Christina told me I was scheduled for today and I was more than upset after wasting most of the day waiting. She did give me a $20 reduction on the installation charge so that will only cost me $8 after all. I did not know that Comcast guarantees the appointment time until one of the ladies told me. So that was some compensation but I was really disappointed after being to finally able to get TV back after six months being without it because the rent went sky high my old apartment. Anyway I decided to walk down to the drugstore for a gallon of milk to burn off some steam. I took a cloth shopping bag because I didn't want my hand frozen from the cold handle. It was a challenge coming back up the hill and I was huffing and puffing by the time I reached the community room and collapsed into a chair to catch my breath before coming back to my apartment. They were playing cards so I sat and watched them for a while, visited with John. Then I came home and made dinner, then decided to attack the hill behind the complex to burn off more steam so I could sleep. That hill is about a 45 degree angle and was more than intimidating for me, especially walking down. I could envision myself tumbling down the hill a-- over teakettle beside the old hospital. I walked six square blocks in about 20 minutes so that wasn't so bad. At least I wasn't so out of breath when I got home. I plan on doing that a couple times a day to get in shape. I lost a half pound yesterday from running up and down the stairs to see if Mr Cableman was there yet plus stressing out because he didn't come. It was not his fault, it is Kelly's, who did the scheduling. I will be nice to him when he comes!! LOL
So I should be watching TV this afternoon.
I hope you are all drinking your water and staying hydrated.
