Remember these phones?
and these phones?
A "house phone" we can take everywhere!
We haven't really downsized yet.
Although my kids are 26, 24 and 22,
and they are in places of their own - much of their "stuff" is still here!
It's difficult for me to pack up beautiful dolls that belong at "tea parties."
Jason's Garfield books are still displayed in a bedroom bookcase.
~so many memories~
~ But ~
it wasn't difficult for me to pack up all those phones
and say good-bye to a phone number we've had for 23 years.
Even though we are on the "governor's no call list,"
we still get nuisance calls.
Sometimes Caller ID said -0- is calling
Sometimes it was for "Claudette" who has creditors looking for her...whoever she is!
You get the picture!
there's the cable bill!
We had the "all-in-one" package from Time Warner.
...cable, internet and phone...
It was a bargain the first year.
$102 for all three!
For the past two years, the price has gone up every six months.
I've had to renegotiate...over and over.
This month- it was about to go up to $142...they would not renegotiate.
So... off we went last Saturday to turn in the BIG extras.
We are down to basic cable (channels 2-25 with 76, 77, 78 thrown in)
Channel 76 is National Geographic - which is nice...
and high speed internet.
This is what we used to have.
I don't miss ALL the news ALL day.
With the internet,
I don't miss television.
With my cellphone,
I don't miss the house phone.
I love staying connected
to the world~ Quietly ~
I hope you're having a wonderful weekend dear ♥'s
