Gosh, I think I just used up my entire internet allotment for the next month, loading this short video. It is however, funny to watch and is exactly why we can't have nice things in this house. This goes on every single day for hours on end. It's part of the "ball" game.
Well RATS ... try as I might, I cannot get the video to play. Maybe you will have better luck.
So ... on with the downloading saga. Now that my phone is working ... sort of ... there are a few hiccups ... it was time to hit the road and try to fix my Apple watch.
Here's the problem. The only internet I have is a small MiFi that looks like this. I've had it for about ten years now. Wherever you go, even to Alaska, it connects to Verizon towers and gives me internet access.
Yes I could go to Starbucks and connect to their WiFi after giving them access to my computer (not a good idea) or even McDonalds. Those are okay if you are just surfing the internet. For banking and buying, that's not a very safe option.
This one is password protected and I never leave it on so someone could hack it and use up all my data.
It just happens that at MY house, the signal is terrible. That's one reason I'm up at 4:00 every morning when everyone else is sleeping, meaning I get access. Otherwise I'm out of luck. Driving down to the Church where the MiFi signal is five times as strong (don't ask me why cuz I have no idea) allows faster download speeds.
I headed off to the church to download the new update for my watch that now doesn't work at all. I had everything plugged in and charged up. This is the message I got once I hit the download button. Yup .. SEVENTEEN hours. Are you kidding me? It only took 30 minutes (60 of actual time) to download my entire PHONE update.
As you can imagine, I didn't sit there long. I closed everything up and went back home.
What an exciting morning THAT was. I am happy to say at least there have been no skunk smellings or sightings in the last few days. Hard to believe that Big Momma was making all those holes by herself, maybe with the help of one baby.
Today I'm plugging up all the holes I've left open. If I see any new tunnels under the fence, I'll know to put the trap out again. In the meantime, I've got water pipes to wrap since the temps are getting down to freezing every night now.
I hope your turkey is already thawed, or better yet, you have reservations at your favorite restaurant. Order an extra plate to take home for leftovers!! Thanksgiving is upon us!!
P.S. I have now looked at my wrist 395 times to see what time it is.
