Love - Hate: Sunday, March 2nd Edition

LOVE: Verizon FIOS Telephone service with Caller ID
HATE: Now, I have to buy a phone that actually has Caller ID !

LOVE: Verizon FIOS TV
LOVE: DVR with the FIOS
LOVE: ON DEMAND
LOVE: Lots and LOTS of channels
LOVE: The awesome sharpness of the picture
HATE: The remote has LOTS and LOTS of buttons that I don't know how to use yet!

LOVE: I will get a 19" HDTV in 8 - 12 weeks (FREE)
HATE: One of my older TVs might not last that long - the picture is blue - until it warms up after about a 1/2 hour !! (But the picture looks awesome - eventually)

LOVE: Verizon FIOS Internet
LOVE: It's fast .................
HATE: I was without the Internet for the entire day on Saturday !!

LOVE: Wireless capability
HATE: I had to go buy a wireless adapter for the computer because the hookup is in the basement and the computer is STILL in the dining room ...

LOVE: That the insurance company fixed the damages in the kitchen.
HATE: The kitchen, for some unknown reason*, has dishes in the sink - and the dishwasher works now!

LOVE: That the insurance company is going to repair the hole in the ceiling of the basement.
HATE: That it isn't done yet - hence, the reason the computer is still in the dining room

LOVE: That the insurance company is going to paint the ENTIRE basement
HATE: That it hasn't been done yet - since the hole is still in the ceiling!

LOVE: That the insurance company is going to paint the ENTIRE basement
HATE: The basement is still in total disarray - since the hole is still in the ceiling!

LOVE: My Home Owners Insurance Company
HATE: That I am getting impatient !!!!!!!

LOVE: That I received several gift cards for my birthday (Thanks Mom and Dad and SJ)
HATE: That I couldn't find a single pair of jeans that fit me properly.

LOVE: That I received several gift cards for my birthday
HATE: That I came home with ONLY 2 blouses !!

LOVE: That I had money (gift cards) to spend ...
HATE: That I couldn't spend it ALL - TODAY !!

LOVE: That I am going to take my dieting SERIOUSLY again starting tomorrow.
HATE: That I am going to probably be hungry and cranky for the next few days.

LOVE: That I have a new (to me) digital camera (just like SJ's old one)
HATE: That I haven't had time to even look at it and figure it out.

LOVE: That I have blog friends who have given me awards.
HATE: That I haven't posted about them and given out the proper thanks.

LOVE: That I have blog friends who have tagged me for a meme.
HATE: That I haven't done them yet.

LOVE: Fun Monday
HATE: I didn't sign up this week (the assignment scared me - I'm not all that creative when it comes to writing a story) AND it is supposed to be a movie trailer about your life (didn't want to scare anyone else!)

* I have been greatly overwhelmed lately (work, family, home, normal every day things ... really) - I don't seem to have enough time in a day/week to get everything done that I need/want to get done. I get frustrated (and the tears sometimes just fall too easily) and I don't know where to start. It's a slow and never ending process ...
