A Day Well Spent

Today started off like most Saturdays. Up at the crack of dawn, get breakfast, try to find something resembling Saturday morning cartoons on the tube.

This morning I helped out as much as I could, but I had to jump on a conference call at 7 and disow production rollout for one of the groups I support at 8.

By the time I was done with that, Irish Woman had taken care of BooBoo, and was working on the weekend chores. I grabbed a cup of coffee and pitched in.

Just before lunchtime, the cable guy arrived to swap out our cable box. He did a signal reading at the TV and decided we needed all new wiring too. He then spent almost 3 hours running and moving cable throughout the house. When he was done my Internet was faster and my TV picture was cleaner. He refused to take a tip for all the extra work, so I'm sending a note to the local manager complimenting him.

Side note: you may think your housekeeping is pretty good, but you will feel like a complete slob when the cable guy takes you to all those places that are covered on dust and cobwebs.

The rest of the afternoon was spent playing with Boo and grabbing a nap. When I got a chance, I took the latest batch of mushrooms out of the dryer and froze half a dozen chopped onions. We like both for their convenience in cooking, especially the onions.

Tonight we indulged Boo a bit and let him watch a couple of movies. Now that he's in bed, I'm considering an early bedtime myself.

Hope everyone had a good day too!

My day was not so good, but I'm really glad yours was!

W/V "notamag" It was NOT a magnificent day.

Sounds like the perfect day (minus the conf call and the cable guy)... Spent with family! :-)
