Day Four No Sun

I stayed up very late last night, I should say I went to bed early this morning since it was 3 am. I was reading, watching t.v. and cleaning up a little around here, Since yesterday was the last of the medication, thank God!, maybe I won`t have to take another pill to sleep. The blisters are dried up and I am left with red patches that are and will peel like having a bad sunburn. I still itch. I wake knowing the sun won`t shine today either, I don`t find this depressing at all but with the misty rain it means I will be inside and the poor dogs will stay inside their houses as well. I want to stay home all day today but there is something I am forgetting to do and I do not know what it is. Today I make Dish go down or I will switch to regular cable, mostly for Tony, I am paying a high price for the least package, when its offered to others for half what I pay, a couple more dollars I am supposed to be getting everything they got! How messed up is that? I am now having morning coffee at noon and doing laundry. How is your day going?

I know. I would switch from DISH too, if my mother wasn't with me and dependent on it. It was hard enough just to teach her the Dish remote, lol. I would check into some of the new devices out there and switch to only what I watch. There are so many alternatives these days.

I hate it when the internet/phone providers charge some of us more than what others pay. Last summer, or maybe it was the summer before I asked my provider whether they would consider giving us the deal given to new customers, if not, we would be downsizing what we had. They of course, declined my idea, so I got rid of the service for the TV keeping only the internet and phone. Since then, I've gotten mailings about once or twice per week to get the deal which includes TV again. Although, I don't pay a lot less now than I would if I took them up on it, I'm trashing their offers until we get more caught up with our bills. If we ever decided to switch to using our cell phones for a home number I could consider using At and T instead, but for now I'll stay where I am with the cheaper price. Your title got me here because we saw the sun for about half an hour if that today. Just before it got even cloudier than it was when it was raining this morning, but this time the temps fell, the winds got stronger and we got snow flurries too. It sounds like you had a bout with shingles or something?

@andriaperry Ahh, I think I had either that or poison sumac one summer back in the eighties. Not comfortable at all although for me it was mostly on my legs. I think it was located in an area where I was weeding. One of the blisters on my upper thigh was huge making it quite difficult to walk. I also walked holding my shorts away from the blister so it didn't rub.

oh these companies don't seem to care. i called my internet company several times and that is all we have is internet because i can watch everything i want from my Roku, just like having cable. but the others here have been trying to get me to add cable and since Spectrum already raised my internet bill, it would only be about 20 bucks more. when i tried to get the new customer break others are getting, they kept going back to the fact that i got internet as a break for 20 bucks less for the year till that ran out. seems they get you every turn. but i am just going without cable cause i don't need it. i told the others if they want cable throw in the extra 20 a month. lol
