Monday and a Cox Tech

 I slept poorly last night for some reason..I don't know why. I was awake off and on all night after 2:30AM

This morning I changed my bed and am washing the sheets. I am dressed and ready for the day. A tech from Cox is supposed to be here sometimes between 8:00AM and 10:00AM to install a new piece of equipment in the place of an obsolete one that they installed when I moved here.The TV tears from time to time and they think that is why. It never happened when I lived in Coffeyville. It could just be a poor weak signal too. Since I have Cox Complete Care I won't have to pay for the service call. That takes care of my computers and the TV too.

It's 5:26AM now and I will go try to watch the "weather on the 8's"...if the picture isn't tearing again this morning. It's too early to check on the cats so I will wait another hour to do that.

I managed to watch the weather but when I turned to the 60 Minutes program I had recorded last night I learned the football game had gone into overtime and I only had part of 60 Minutes to watch. Grrrr. Next time I will record whatever comes after 60 Minutes too. That way I will get the entire program.

It's 6:46AM now and I found both cats were waiting for their breakfast so I took it out to them. They are eating now.

I folded out the clean dry sheets and put them away while I watched that part of 60 Minutes.

More later.... 

The Cox tech came promptly at 8:00AM and checked out all the wiring to the TV. He also prepared to change out the box that receives the signal. That newer basic box would not be able to handle my Tivo and it became apparent that the only thing I could receive with the Tivo after he disconnected it and reconnected it was my Amazon Prime. I could get none of my starter package. 

He worked with it quite awhile and finally got it working again. I checked and I was able to also get into my Amazon Prime again....and the four stations in my starter package and even the music stations I never use. The reason my bill is usually $137.65 is because I am being charged separately for the rental of the router for the internet and the internet service itself.

It's a scam..that's all it is.

I finished my new book this morning and will try to download some more books to my Kindle now. 

I got a couple of new mysteries downloaded on my Kindle and I will start reading them this evening.

I went over to Nancy's this afternoon and took her a frozen chicken pot pie.I had her take her evening meds and then eat the pot pie. We cooked it in the microwave. I left so she could eat and I went home to my own last pot pie. I need to order some more.

I will take Nancy to the market in the morning at 9:00AM. She has very little food in her freezer. She will need to buy some frozen meals. That will be the easiest way for her to eat regularly when we don't go out to eat. I plan to take her out a couple of times a week. 

I came home and later took my bath. I plan to go to bed at 9:00PM but first I will read awhile.
