my weekend update

Good morning.
It was a busy weekend. Sunday, a visit to Mom, Monday I went to the Audiologist for a check-up. The hearing aide is functioning perfectly.  Later, I went over to a customer's home and spent nearly 3 hours debugging his puter. part of the problem is he's still running Windows xp. But it's cleaned up and working for now.
Tuesday, ordered a spare tire kit for the Jeep. Funny we couldn't get one through the dealer, but no problem finding one online.  :-/
And I got my newer phone.
Obviously, it's the one on the left.
A bigger screen, a newer operating system, a better camera, and it's a little thinner too!
It's another LG phone, so it works very similar to the old one. And it uses the same charging cord my old one does. Once I switch Craig's really old phone for my old one, I'll be able to get rid of his charger which is different from mine. It'll be nice just having one type of charger. Our tablets also use the same charger.
It was very easy to go online and transfer my number and minutes to my new phone. This coming weekend, I'll do the same for Craig. Then, he'll be able to text me when he wants to. His really old flip phone did text, but he didn't have a keyboard, just the number pad. So to type C for example he had to hit the 1, 3 times. A real pain. My old phone will be so much nicer for him.
I've also started the process of transferring all our auto-pays to our Chase checking acct. Once we move, we'll have to close our main accounts which are at Lake Trust Credit Union. They don't have a presence out in Nevada.
So slowly but surely we are making progress toward our eventual move.
But right now, I've got to get to work!


  1. I have been a member of a credit union in Texas since my first assignment out of basic. They have locations in Texas, Colorado, and a couple places I can't remember. Never had a problem. They have been a great credit union.
    They also have something called 'shared branching' now, where about 5000 credit unions do business as if you were a member. There were several in NC and there are a lot here. I can walk in and make deposits or withdrawals as if I was in my credit union in Texas.

    Good you already have an option set up though.

    Larger phones are great when your eyes get a little older.

    Have a good work week.
