Today I celebrate being connected once again to wi-fi and TV cable….
However, it has also been a bit freeing to move on Dec. 23rd and NOT have wi-fi and TV installed in my new house for 11 days.
However, it wasn’t like I was totally unwired. I still had my cell phone but was careful not to do too much on the phone for fear of using up the data allotment. It did give me the opportunity to learn from my daughter that my phone could be used as a “hot spot” allowing me to pay a fee bills online at home on Dec. 31st.
Without wi-fi, my biggest treat was to I stopped binge-watching Grey’s Anatomy on my kindle through netflix and just READ!!
I ended up reading 6 books:
1. Who Was Maurice Sendak by Janet Pascal
2. Echo by Pam Munoz Ryan
3. Orphan Train by Christian Baker Kline
4. Wait For Me by Judith Viorst
5. I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai
6. Platypus Police Squad – The Frog Who Croaked by Jarrett Krososczka
And I realized that the 2 netflix DVDs that arrived months ago could be watched without cable hookup. So I also enjoyed watching The Wizard of Oz and The Theory of Everything on my TV screen using my DVD player.
But now I can sit and blog at my dining room table using my newly installed wi-fi. And I’m looking forward to watching Downton Abby tomorrow night on my newly installed cable.
Today I celebrate the friendly cable guy who hooked up our house with cable and wi-fi!
