I accidentally stayed up all night. I accidentally slept in all morning Friday so I guess I shouldn't be terribly surprised but it's no less an unpleasant surprise.
Let's see, I've had a busy few days.
Wednesday evening Mom and I went to a local Sprint store to see about a
family plan for just the two of us, as the one she's been on with my
eldest sister was up for renewal and said sister had expressed interest
in perhaps looking at different options to save money. After waiting
about an hour and hearing from a customer that they had been there for
THREE hours, we made a discreet exit and I remembered and voiced to Mom,
that Bestbuy has phones and can generally do plans with the big
companies, and why not head there, since they were not about to close
and would be more likely to have enough people to help us.
ended up being the best option. It turned out that eldest sis was in a
Sprint store elsewhere sorting out a phone and some contract details,
and we were able to coordinate with her and add me to the plan. Mom put
the deposit on a phone for me (my old phone is not Spring compatible,
though still functional), and we ended up walking out incredibly pleased
with the service, and with a coupon for a free TV (under $200). We came
back next night to buy a protective case for phone (shuffling of funds
made it impractical to do so at time of purchase) and had another
employee help us to find a TV that fit the "free" description of the
coupon. We left with a nice solid Otterbox case for my new Samsung
Galaxy S7, and a 32inch Smart Samsung TV, which I set up today shortly
after I woke up. Er, today being Friday, since I've not slept.
for today proper (Saturday) are to meet up with eldest sis and Faythe
in Carrolton for our monthly quilt block club and quick chat. After that
I will be confirming some things to help a friend with the most recent
I am hoping to get some sleep before we drive out
to Carrolton, and I am hoping to be able to finish the computer things
early on, as I am knackered.
I'm sure there is something else
important to share but I can't recall what it is right now. Those of you
who have had my number in the past, give me a poke, and I'll text you.
Some of my contacts didn't transfer, because I didn't want to transfer
all of my games (and risk using up all the shared data from the family
plan) and am using my old phone (Samsung Galaxy S6) as a pocket tablet
for gaming exclusively.
Oh and in setting up the new TV, I set aside the older one (still functioning quite nicely) and swapped my DVD/VHS player
with Mom, since she was a bit aggravated with the programming of hers.
At some point in the not too far future they will be put to use in the
studio so that when inclined we can comfortably watch a movie or two
