OTMTW – 7/6/14

Well it’s confirmed we really are addicts.  On Saturday we used 6GB. 😦 We only have 60 for the month … Do you see a possible problem?

Anyhoo …

Diva decided to get back on the meal planning in a big way.  She actually wrote out this week’s menu.

Menu plan 07/06/14

Sunday – Chicken & rice
Monday – Fish sticks, fries & beans
Tuesday – Alfredo sauce & pasta with cucumber
Wednesday – Corn beef & rice
Thursday – Leftovers
Friday – Frozen pizza

Tomorrow I am going to teach her how to make Alfredo sauce as it is her very favourite.  Hopefully when she tries to make it on her own she doesn’t burn down my house.


Internet addicts

Princess who always sleeps in was up bright and “early” this morning so she could go on the internet.

Last night we went to bed before midnight.  Diva got up at some time after midnight to use the internet.

I think we might need some sort of self-help program.

I went out for lunch with one of my cousins and I am fairly sure my girls did not move from in front of their computers/iTouches.

Going to have to figure out how to curb this next month when they will be home ALL day.


A lazy day

On Canada Day I worked in exchange for July 4th off.

Hello long weekend.

I was pondering what to do with my day and have decided it will be a lazy day.  My sister wants to clean my car and I would not want to rob her of that joy! LOL

I’ll spend a little time online.  Tomorrow our new billing cycle starts so I see a lot of time spent on the computer for all of us.  So maybe today won’t be quite so lazy after all.  If we do all our chores today … then instead of a lazy day, we can have a lazy weekend!!

Sign me up!!

Now to convince the children. 😉

Oh Rogers, what have I done to endure your wrath

I am cheating at work and writing this post.  Something I know you all NEVER do.  😉

Now you might be saying to yourself, “Sunny, why are you telling me this?  I couldn’t care less.  You don’t report to me.”  As true as this is, it is how I will launch into my rant.

**getting on soap box**
**tapping microphone**

I have been a loyal Rogers (provider of all things communications related) customer for 15+ years.  When I moved into my condo 4 years ago I became the supreme customer, taking ALL the services they offer: home phone, cell phone, internet and cable. 

And what has my reward been?  Up until last month I would say great reliable service.  Today I am starting to look at my options. 

About a month or so before my vacation I had no internet.  A technician came out and fixed the problem during a work day.  He split the cable to give the internet it’s own cable.  Life as we know it is great again.

When I returned from vacation, my home phone was not working.  A service call was placed.  I spent 2 hours during a work day at home to get it fixed.  Now my internet is spotty.  To fix my home phone the technician split the cable (again) and now the signal to my internet is not strong enough to provide me with consistent service. 


To fix this, another appointment during work hours has been made … on FRICKIN’ Wednesday!?! 

**getting off soap box**

It’s only Monday … 😦

Don’t they know I am an addict???
