Jealous! No Fios in this area. I have At&t Uverse and it works very well though.

Thanks for the kind words everyone. This must be the reason for my recent "funk" that I have been in. Everyone back home made time for mom yesterday, and she sounded good.

Fios just arrived in this area. I'm in a condo complex so they did a major laying of lines to service the whole area and now are doing a marketing campaign to sign up customers. I'm switching from Comcast because I'm saving mega bucks each month.

We have the back sliding door which consists of 3 large window panes, a large window in the loungeroom and a large window in the dining area, and of the course the bay window in the bedroom

The slimline blinds are for the bay window in the kitchen, we chose White Snow colour for them

We will get the quote in a few days...we are thinking it may cost about $5,000
That sounds nice! I have never hear of a curtains and blinds lady! I have the worst time picking out curtains and blinds for my house!

I stayed up working on sales tax reports until about 06h00. Now I am trying to wake up. I have to assemble a couple of tax returns and bring all of it to Revenue Quebec. I just want to go back to sleep.

Just got home from the pool. Have to figure out what to make for supper. There is nothing in the house to make. Looks like we will be going out somewhere.

Is that the key to going out? Just get rid of all the food so we have to go out??? Who knew? I don't go out much, but it is nice to have a night where someone cooks for me. ;)

I don't usually advise people to bring work home with them but, in this case it might be a good idea!
