Thanks for the well wishes.
I'm probably trying to do too much but it's been wonderful to be able to clean up and clean out, inside and out. Very freeing and satisfying. I also like being able to tape the programs I like and having control of the TV remote.giggle
My youngest has been helping me pare down expenses by changing phone, TV, & internet companies and package plans and putting the billing in my name. So far so good. My cell phone has been a big problem and we spent almost a whole day trying to get me a new one and the service changed to a lower cost package. I finally told him let's put it off for a week and let me think about how to handle it.

Glad to hear you're taking it easier, EQ. Hope both you and your son are getting better.

Sounds like you are keeping busy Gram. The phone companies can be very troublesome Mad

The leaves are beginning to fall which means our business will speed back up until late November then a much appreciated winter break! Just had first semester teacher meetings and my son made the honor roll! So proud of him! 5th grade is hard.....I think I say that every year. It's amazing what they learn now....he is learning things I wasn't introduced to until high school Surprised

Have a great day everyone!

EQ: I hope these weeks go fast.

I hope everyone else will be fine as well.

The last weeks I've been so tired at 10 in the evening, it was a struggle to stay up to 11. Then I had to use my sleeping tablets to sleep. I hoping to get off those drugs, but last night I managed to stay up to half past 1 at night and still wasn't sleepy. I had the apartment for myself though. I was hoping I would sleep without Stilnoch, but it didn't work. Perhaps partly because I went to bed that late.

The wound after the catheter I had still troubles me. It sometimes feels like a pipe moving in different directions, and stretching. It might take a while for it to heal.

This is the second time I push send. I wonder if I may have pushed new topic instead Suspect

Gram: In my country the government was lazy when this needed to be done and didn't think about consumers, so we can't choose. The owner of the building let Canal Digital install cable TV. They probably got a discount or something. Then the tenants are the one paying the bills and we would like to be able to choose to best provider. Finally it looks like the authorities for consumer issues has started to look at how they can have more competitions in the market. They are thinking about one fee for the cables and a different fee for the signals, meaning we can start to kick out useless providers of cable TV packages we don't want.

I'm finding I like competition. I will never be a communist, too many opportunities for lazy and greedy people.

We have this tradition of a far more interferring government here. When it comes to moving phones around it's usually very easy ... unless you bought the phone with a binding agreement of lower monthly pay. Moving the phone between providers is being automatic, with perhaps a few hours without service. Most consumers won't even know the phone was moved until they have to change the card in the phone and the pin.

Did everyone have a good weekend?

I enjoyed mine by filling my time with a variety of fun things including the Sims.

Yes, I did. Thank you. I had little bit of time to play Sims 4 and enjoyed the nice fall weather with my family.

Glad to hear you had a nice weekend MW. I hope everyone else did too.

So much running around and phone calls then more running around. I finally got AT&T canceled and am saving half with Comcast. Celebrate Nobody wants to see their business change companies. And too many don't seem to know where to send you or call to close out an account. It was all very tiring. I hope I never have to go through this again! My son took me down to the Apple store to get a new cell phone and put me on their account. He was authorized to take care of the account by his wife whose account it was. But she had to be there in person to add someone to their account. She was in Wisc giving a speech for the company she works for and couldn't answer her phone. The sales person tried various ways to get around her being there in person and when we finally gave up and left my son found he couldn't use his phone as it went to the Fraud dept every time he tried. He was flipping out cause his wife is due in less than 2 weeks and neither one has a working cell phone on them. I felt so bad at causing all the ruckus. We all went back to the Apple store, not a quick trip, that evening and got everything straightened out. I will have this phone forever. I can't believe how much they cost now!!!!
got a letter in the mail from Xfinity saying saying that a user on my account recently changed my preferred e-mail address and a secondary user had been added. Huh? Another phone call to straighten it out this morning.
Taking husband for a neurological test next week. Actually he'll be bused to the office cause it would be too difficult to get him in and out of the jeep, and I'll meet him there. They suspect Parkinson disease.
It's raining here, cold too, so I doubt there will be many Trick or Treaters. I'm going to go make cup cakes anyway.
Happy Halloween jack cackle mummy candy

Oh my Gram, what a bother about the phones. I don't have a cell, but waiting for my cable/internet company to get the service here. They have in on the east coast but not here yet.

I hope all goes well at the test for your hubby.

Happy Halloween everyone.

Oh gosh Gram! What a pain for all of you about the phone. I am very sorry to hear of your husband's health.

I hope everyone had a nice Halloween. We did. My son was a "zombie hunter". It was good to know we had protection on our journey for candy! giggle

Extra hour of sleep, Yea!!! Extra hour of night, Boooooooo! Razz

Keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers.

My sole internet access is via my phone right now.
Recovering from my knee surgeries.
The Lt knee was replaced 30th September and the Rt replaced 17th November.
Staying at a Skilled Nursing Facility this time for Physical Therapy. Kind of nice to have help around the clock.
Missing my own familiar surroundings, my Kitties and my Forum friends.
Looking forward to being more independent and getting back to playing and sharing Sims.

My best wishes to everybody; seems like there is hardship in every home.
I have to admit I'm really well this fall. I'm back at the gym again after more than ten years of no sports. It's doing me all sorts of good.

I hope all will get better soon BlowingKiss


@EQueen: Enjoy being waited upon, I'm sure you deserve it sunny

So sorry for everyone's troubles. Hope you are getting better Yunanesca and your ear heals and you get your balance back.
EQ, glad you are on the mend but it does take time and hard work doesn't it? Hope you are back home with your pets real soon. That's a horror about your not having internet. eeek The week I struggled with no connection I got so crabby I didn't dare talk with anyone. Not everything is resolved but I have hope and should know early next week what will happen, what decisions I will have to make. I still don't know the results of my husbands tests. Mad
Having a snowstorm here. I have to go out and shovel soon then back to work going through documents.
Hope to visit here again soon and hope to visit more often. Miss you all.

Fun Fact: When asked about hobbies or things I enjoy I say I play The Sims. I get lots of polite smiles and nods.
Briefly I explain it is a computer game that I enjoy playing and sharing. (More nods and polite smiles).
They have Zero clue.
