I'm in Heaven......

>> Thursday, June 10, 2010

We recently cancelled our cable with Comcast and made the switch to Direct TV.  It wasn't a decision I took lightly.  I hate change.  I resist it with every ounce of my being.  Certainly not a good quality for a military spouse, but I get through it once I'm done sulking.


So, I gave in to My Marine's whim and agreed to make the change.  I was hesitant.  I complained.  I bitched a blue streak when I found out I had to have a tech come back to set us up so that I could get On Demand.  (Do these people not realize that I have a whole season of The Tudors to catch up on?  Episodes that I saved to watch while My Marine was gone over these next two weeks???)

So, yesterday, the tech comes back and fixes my problem and give me a bonus (no, not that -- get your minds out of the gutter people!  But honestly -- it's just as good!)

He programmed my receiver upstairs so that now I can watch whatever I tape in the comfort of my bedroom.  Whatever I tape on my DVR can now be viewed from my wonderfully comfy queen-sized bed.

I instantly became a convert of Direct TV.

I couldn't get the girls to bed fast enough so that I could put my jammies on and make a big bowl of popcorn and snuggle in my bed with Henry VIIIth.


(Mommy - we haven't had dinner yet!  It's still light outside!  Why are you in your pajamas?)

I may never leave my bedroom again!!!

Hmmmm, maybe will switch sometime. But, we are planning on cutting our cable to save some $...

That is so funny. Like you, I struggle with change, well not all change, mostly when it comes to changing up utilities. Glad you've liked it!

haha! Yes, being a military family...being "Semper Gumbi" (always flexible) is a good thing to be!

We made the switch too! And I love that we can record on DVR!

You cracked me up with "...still light outside! Why are you in your pajamas!"

Blessings & Aloha!
