So I may or may not have yelled at Comcast (our cable company) this weekend and Sailor Boy thinks I was WAY out of line and now he's mad because we don't have our tv and internet hooked up yet and it will probably be another few weeks before we get it. Oooops. I was off all weekend (a first for me!) and Sailor Boy left me to go sailing in a regatta...booo. I think I was subconsciously alot more upset about it than I thought because when I woke up on Saturday, I was very pissed that I had to wait for Comcast to come install everything. They are always late and Saturday was no exception. They were supposed to be at the house between 8-11am. So 10am rolls around and I'm laying on the couch with Spencer. I give them a call and they tell me that they can't even give me an estimated time that they will be there. Plus, they were very rude about it. Hmm how lovely. So 11am rolls around -- still no Comcast. At this point, my BFF K has already called (twice) to try and convince me to come to the pool with her.
So I make the executive decision to call Comcast, yell at them (I even cussed...how unladylike!) and tell them not to bother coming. Yeah, I freaked out. Mainly because I knew they were going to be SUPER late and why am I going to waste my first Saturday off in FOREVER to wait for them when I could be at the pool. I was also mad because they were supposed to come LAST Saturday and they were 6.5 hours late (Sailor Boy waited for them last Saturday). Then when they finally showed up last weekend, they told him they couldn't even do anything because the house wasn't wired properly. GRRR. So the appointment was cancelled and I headed to the pool. Well this sort of leaves us back at square one because now we do not have cable or internet and I refuse to wait for them again. And Sailor Boy refuses to wait for them. Interesting predicament. Who knows when we will actually get around to getting it installed. In the meantime, we're reading lots of books and actually spending quality time talking to each other...quite a nice change! I may never get cable at this rate!
We also finished our backyard project, that I mentioned a few weeks ago in this post. We actually put down stepping stones and mini river rock in our little mud pit and it looks great! It took most of Sunday to finish, but I love it! Plus, no more mud!! As soon as we have internet (ha, ha) I will post some pictures of our completed work.
