Well, I took the plunge back into cable this week. We had gone totally Roku and some local channels via a really poor antenna, but we decided to dip back into the cable pool to get faster and more stable internet. Our internet was AW-FUL for the past few months (through AT&T, who I had been with for years, but we were paying for the higher speeds and only getting half the speed we were paying for and that only half the time), so we decided to go with the faster cable internet because they had a great deal for November that lasts a full two years. So, we now also have cable. I like this for my DD because she tends to just watch the same show over and over and over and over and over (I would keep going, but I think you get it) on Netflix or Hulu with the Roku. At least with television, the shows change with time. I also like it for local news. We live in a somewhat rural area, so with the antenna we got one newscast three times a day and if you missed it, too bad for you. But, overall, I noticed after scrolling through the 900 some channels a few times that really, I’m not interested in watching much that is on. Oh well, I’m sure I will find a few things, but right now, I’m back on Netflix with Murder She Wrote playing in the background while I try to do a million things or more.
We got a new (used) washing machine today. Much bigger than our last one and I hope it works well because we have a large amount of laundry to do. Very large.
Other than that, I made it through my first day back in the work saddle. I helped out in my DD’s class this morning and it was pleasant. I then cleaned out the garage to get ready for the new washing machine to come in. I stripped my DD’s bed tonight. All the laundry has been moved from upstairs to the garage, ready to load, wash, dry, fold and repeat. I made it through my classes tonight and it wasn’t too bad. I have speeches tomorrow morning for about four hours straight. Still working on grading.
