The short version is, I'm ditching my cable company. They have been systematically removing channels from their lineup while simultaneously increasing their charges. Um, no. That is not how we do business, folks. I called to complain, told them I would discontinue service if they didn't adjust my bill to reflect my decreasing service, but got nowhere until I actually did set up service with another provider. When I called the current place to cancel, they offered me the moon to stick with them. Too little, too late, Charter! You should have taken me seriously when I called the first time.
So the cable company also provides my internet connection. I'm scheduled to switch on Wednesday, but things tend to not go as planned around here. I would not be surprised if I got disconnected early, or if the new people didn't show up on time or something. So, if I'm not around for a couple days, y'all know why.
Today was a better day. A good nights' sleep did wonders. Still spending too much time stuck in my head, but I'll get there. I decided I'm not making any decisions about anything until after my mammo on Thursday. I can't focus right now, and I don't want to jump into anything like a major purchase until I can think it through clearly. I am also not going to beat myself up for eating PopTarts, or anything else with no nutritional value, until after I get my all clear. I'm not much of a drinker, I don't smoke, I don't even like to go shopping. So, while I wish I was one of those people who exercise compulsively when stressed, I am not. I eat. And I'm going to be okay with that, at least for the next few days.
Thank you all for the supportive comments. I have the best cyber neighbors ever. I wish I could invite y'all over for brownies.
