A comment, rearrange, phone service

I recently wrote on a social site that for me it sometimes feels like my life is just a matter of killing time. Just waiting for it to be over. Or as they (The rock group Pink Floyd has as part of some lyrics in a song) "hanging on in quiet desperation", from "The Dark side of The Moon." One of the responses to my statement was, "That's no fun." No, it's not, but it is how I feel at times. That being said, it's not the side of me I show 99% of the time.

Last night while laying in bed, I had an idea of how to rearrange the living room. After it gets done, I think it will give the living room a more open look and feel. But first we need to get the non-working television moved off of the cabinet it's been sitting on.

Today was pretty productive, once I forced myself to get out of bed after hitting the snooze alarm twice. It wasn't because I was sleeping, so much as it would be so much colder once up and in the living room, which I knew would only be around 65*F. I'm just really feeling down with it being being cold outside. Plus it's been ugly/gray out there for a couple of weeks. Just tired of it and it has really deepened my depression. Sigh! I'm not telling you this so you'll feel sorry for me. Just letting you know how I've been feeling the last couple of weeks. I have had days of feeling good tho, just can't seem to string them together is all.

Anyway, today I went to my exercise class. Then I stopped by my landlord's office and paid our rent. I also was able to tell him of a couple of issues, so now we just wait for this cold spell to end so he can get them looked into. I also got to spend a couple of hours using the computer while my son napped.

We've eaten supper. Now I'm back on my phone, which I still need to make decisions on this week. Do I stay with the same provider and just finance a new phone, or do I see if another provider will let keep this phone even though it was programmed to work with the current one's service? I actually don't even know if I *can* use it with another provider. I plan to start looking deeper into the situation tomorrow (Tues.)

I don't know who you are with but I have been with Verizon (I find them insanely expensive and ridiculous, but am a creature of habit) and I had the same old phone for like 5 years because I didn't want to renew my contract because I was going to dump them yada yada yada. But then my hubs broke his phone and was desperate for a new one but we didn't have the money on the fly for a brand new smart phone. Anyway, the point of this incredibly long string of run on sentences is that we got our phones for free just for renewing our contract.
So, if you're out of contract they'll probably offer you a sweet deal to stay with them. I could've just said that in the first place. Sorry.

Yeah, they probably will. I'm just trying to avoid the hour long drive to the nearest Cricket place. My problem is that the phone has a crack at the top of the screen, so I'm unsure how much credit they'll give me for it. Guess I'll just have to bit the bullet and drive there this or tomorrow afternoon.
