    Yesterday, I had planned to leave work before 5 PM because I got there about 7:20 AM EST. Well, that didn't pan out. I stayed past 5. Oh well, it was a very busy day. A good mixture of billable and non-billable hours. Roger didn't eat much yesterday. I wonder if he misses hubby. Well,... Read more

    Yesterday, we played tennis until 12:30 PM. I sat out for about 15 minutes. I was a bit tired. After tennis we went to lunch at Pho Tay Ho. I only played two sets. Hubby and I lost to David and Denny 7-5. Eric and I lost to Denny and Andrew 7-6 (4). We should have won that set but I made too ... Read more

    On Saturday, we played tennis from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM. Four hours. We were so hungry afterwards. We went to XO Taste for lunch and ordered 10 dishes for nine people. We ate up everything. We must have been hungry. We did a quick stop at Costco to get a few items. Today, we are playing... Read more

    Yesterday, I was very busy at work. It was a good billable day. Well, the VP of the delivery company called and apologized. I should have asked him to defer the fees to take away our old love seats. I didn't. The delivery is scheduled for today between 2:30 PM and 5:30 PM EST. I hope they come... Read more

    Well, the delivery men showed up around 4:45 PM EST (the delivery time was 3:30 PM to 6:30 PM EST). They showed up with one love seat. I asked where is the other one. They replied I don't know. It may be in the warehouse. We didn't load the truck. So, I told them to come back when they have bo... Read more

    Another busy day at work yesterday. Again, non-billable work. Today, I work at home and thank goodness. I needed to get out of the office environment at least once a week. It's a toxic office environment. Today, we are expecting the delivery of our new love seats. Woo hoo.... Read more

    It took the two Comcast Tech between 20-25 minutes to resolve the OnDemand and DVR issues on the Anyroom DVR (hub). Then, we checked the two terminals on the second and third floors. The terminal on the third floor had an issue where I couldn't watch the recorded test show. It also had the record... Read more

    Well, it's unbelievable. The Comcast Tech went to the wrong house. He called around 8:18 AM on my cell. I didn't pick up because I didn't recognize the phone number. So, I called back and discovered he was at the house. So, hubby texted me a few times so I can be kept up-to-date. The Tech repl... Read more

    well, we were so disappointed that Roger lost. He tried and fought. Came up short. We thought this was his best chance. We played tennis until 4:30 PM and then went to Pho Tay Ho for lunch/dinner. Today, a Comcast Tech is coming to replace the new (two week old) Anyroom DVR and make sure th... Read more

    Hubby stayed home to watch the Wimbledon matches. Thank goodness because the DVR showed it was recording the program. I couldn't find them on our recorded programs list.

    I got to work early yesterday and left early so I can make our haircut appointments. Also, I swapped the Anyroom DVR with the one of the hubs to determine if the issue is with the box or with the wiring. It's the box. So, I will spend more time with the Comcast Tech sometime in the near future. ... Read more

    Well, the Comcast Tech arrived around 11 AM EST. It took him almost one hour to replace the existing cable (DVR) boxes. The Anyroom DVR was getting a ppor signal. Somehow Comcast fixed it.

    Well, it turned out that I misread the Leave Policy. Although, this is what is written: Maximum Carry Over/Pay Out = 240 hours and 10 years or more service = 280. So, where did I misread it? There is no use or lose unless you leave the company. So, I removed a couple of days from my list. I sho... Read more
