FIVE HOURS

It is 1:30 on a beautiful day and I long to go outside and play. I have grass to cut, gardens to groom, rock to move. I becoming increasingly agitated as I sit here held prisoner through no fault of mine. Direct TV is here changing out the dish to accommodate HD on local channels. You would think it would have been a simple change over. This has been over FIVE hours now!

FIVE LONG HOURS. No shower for me this morning. No coffee in peace with my computer. FIVE hours of listening to the sports channel. Seems to be the channel of choice to hook up with. All THREE TV's are on and the dogs are pinned up in the kitchen WHINING. FIVE HOURS. He is not done yet. I am walking behind him and turning off TVs, but the dogs are going bonkers from being pinned up behind a piece of pegboard with my chair against it to prevent escape.

I have cleaned everything I can reach while he is in here. I have changed all the sheets and I have washed all the dishes. I have dusted and I have vacuumed. I am losing it as my day is slowly, ever so slowly drifting away. FIVE HOURS of my life I will NEVER get back.

Hope the technician is done by now :-)

When we changed over to HD it took longer than I would have thought, but most of the work was outside on the roof.

Gah! I hate having to wait round for tradesmen. The dogs hate it too! LOL.

It will be well worth it when you see Brad Pitt in HD. But I'll tell ya, when my brother first got HD, he was proudly filling through the channels. He happened to stop on one where some guys was lifting weights. Did I need to see each individual sweaty arm pit hair of his? Yuck! I think not! It was an image I had to poke out of my mind's eye!

I obviously don't have my brain in gear yet this morning. Let me correct my last comment. When my brother was FLIPPING through the channels, and some GUY was lifting weights. Okay, I feel better now. Thanks.

Just found your site. Love some of the situations with your campers. Hope the few fulltime RVrs you have come in are better mannered. I'm sorry we missed your campground when coming from Sedalia last spring. We look forward to stopping next summer as we travel from AZ to IN.

We too love our soaps which we multi-record on Sky + and watch back to back when we return after a few days - heaven! I'm sorry for your loss! Hugs
