Lots of Changes as the New Year Approaches

I've been very busy at the job. We're in the process of closing the Michigan business and opening the Florida business. Everything's the same as far as the customers are concerned. There's a heap of paperwork on my desk. I don't think it's gonna get done today. I have to be careful to keep the MI and the FL stuff separate so things don't get misfiled. I'm looking forward to getting together with friends this weekend.

New Cell Phone

I got a new cell phone today. Despite signing up for a flat rate for the land lines there are still a bunch of extra access fees and taxes. Do I really need 2 land lines anymore? I don't think so. I'm shutting down one of the land lines and replacing it with the new cell phone.

The cell phone can go with me as I travel. I can change the number to a Florida number after we move.

I took the free phone that came with a nationwide plan, although I really wanted something that could play mp3's for jogging. It's a huge upgrade from the old cell phone that we use mostly as a car phone. I'm having fun pushing all the buttons and playing with the features. Alfonze is getting sick of me playing with the ring tones.

Somebody's Sick for Christmas

It's going to be a quiet Christmas. Mom had surgery on her sinuses 4 days ago. She thought she'd be well enough to host a Christmas dinner, but she is really sick. I brought her some home made chicken soup this afternoon.
