Interesting. I do everything right-handed except sports stuff such as throwing batting, golfing, which I do left-handed.

I'm tired of coming home to a bunch of little messes. All very innocent and all really understandable, but I'm tired of it. Dishes in the sink when the dishwasher is half empty, a load of laundry that didn't get switched to the dryer so needs to be rewashed. Simple little things but I feel like everyone's clean up crew. BAH.

Fios is installed now and we have to learn all new channel lineups and menus to get things done. Humbug.

On the bright side, with one DVR and three other boxes, we can record shows on the DVR and watch these recordings on any of the TVs.

So is Fios, just television? Or is it blindingly fast internet too?

It's a combination of television Internet and telephone service as well

That's what the phone company here wants me to get. Does it improve the internet service? I don't really want to switch ISP, because the one I have gives me a fixed IP address, which is essential if you want to host your own websites

Maybe it is time to take a page from the rest of the family!

Don't sweat the small stuff.

Take care of the things that bother you and leave the rest!

If everything bothers you put an advertisement on Craigslist for a new family!

Makes me wonder what would happen if we were in a 3-legged race. Now, that's being entirely facetious -- I've never even been in a 3-legged race, and don't get any ideas 'cause I'm too old to start now.

I'm doing the next best thing. I'm heading out of town for the weekend to hang out with my sisters!
