I Love It When Things Work Out!

Well, here I am laying on the couch in my NEW APARTMENT!!  It is just purrrrrrfect for me, it’s a studio with a nice comfy bed and an even comfy-er couch!  It has cable tv (yikes addictive) and a full kitchen and it now has wifi since I got it installed yesterday.  The guy who came to install the wifi tried some funny business, saying he had to put a filter on the cable tv to reduce it to 25 channels (from 71) because that’s all this complex is supposed to have.  I was of course, dismayed since that was not what was advertised/promised by the landlord.  THEN he offered to NOT put the filter on if I gave him a HUNDRED DOLLAR TIP!!!  What a scumbag!!  I just said I couldn’t afford that, but I hoped he wouldn’t put the filter on anyway.  He called (or pretended to call) his supervisor and ended up not putting the filter on, yay!  Then after installing the internet he tried to tell me that it was fifty bucks extra for WIFI . . . um, no!  This whole interaction left me feeling dirty and wondering, how many old people has this fucker pulled this scam on and come away with an extra $100 or $150 cash in his pocket?  I went to the Bright House Networks website and reported his scam.  The representative seemed unconcerned.  Oh well, like I say, all’s well that ends well.  And in the end I got what I needed.

I am just a 1/2 mile from the beach, so I’ve walked there the past two days, and then walked on the beach (SWEET!).  Oh how I wish I could have you all come and visit!!  This is the best cure for SAD that I’ve ever seen, for sure!!  The days are so much longer than Colorado, even now right before the winter solstice, it doesn’t get dark until 6pm!!  I love it, love it, love it!!  And in January I hear it’s just supposed to get HOTTER!!  YEAH!

So, just four days left and then I’m off to Colorado for Christmas!!!  SO EXCITED to see my family, especially my precious darling nieces and nephews!!!  I am just going to soak them up for a week!!!  I can’t wait.  Oh, and I need to Christmas shop!  I don’t have room to pack anything so I will need to do it all once I get there.  Yikes!  Should be fun and busy.

So, how are you, my friends?  Hope you’re doing well this holiday season.  Peaches!!

  1. OHMYGOD YOU DID ITTTTTTTTT!!!!! I am massively proud and in awe of you. I knew you would kick ass!!!! Enjoy your trip home to loved ones, travel safe. And on your return to your winter hideaway, the beach and hot sunny days await you. I am extremely happy for you. Your whole approach to all these obstacles has been so positive and inspiring. I’m so excited I lost all power of speech – OHMYGOD YOU DID ITTTTTTTTTT!!!!!! 😀

  2. I’m MEGA-happy for you, my friend! :)))))))) You are truly amazing – you did it!! The apartment sounds AWESOME – I can’t believe how close you are to the beach.

    Keep up those wonder walks – they are SUPER good for you! I’m sharing the link I pasted below with everyone I care about because this gorgeous (but more importantly, wink wink, brilliant) psychiatrist doctor dude explains why it’s important to exercise daily and how much, yadda yadda yadda!

    Sorry you had to deal with the scumbag, by the way, but you handled it so well!!!

    Sending you lots of love – I’ll be offline for the next two weeks, but when I return to the ‘net I’ll check in for the next fiery update.

    Have a blast in Coldorado and once again, congrats!! XOXOXOXOXoxO DyDy


  3. Sounds very nice! I am glad to hear you are doing so well! Just keep in mind for your stay back in Colorado, to use your DBT skills as it will likely be at least slightly stressful (it always is, no matter how great family is). 🙂

  4. Oooh hunny I’m SO SO happy for you! You did it!!! You had a big decision to make and you kicked it’s butt, you’re awesome sauce! And good on you for reporting that douchebag, i hope he gets some shitty karma xo YAY

  5. It sounds like you have found the perfect place. I used to live in Florida next to the beach and I loved it! It’s nice when things work out, I myself have just moved my ever growing family into a new home near the white mountains and it’s beautiful, my son loves it. As far as that cable man, been there!! My cable guy actually had the nerve to hit on me…right in front of my son no less, some people can be scumbags. Good for you and congratulations!!
