Things have been going along fairly smoothly, until yesterday, and my hang up had to do with a telephone number and Corning Ware. I kid you not.
I called AT&T to see if it's possible to hang onto my landline phone number. See, it's been in the family for 40+ years and even though only one person I know uses it, well, you never know. So, yes, for the price of $24.95 + taxes I can keep it. I have to ask myself if it's worth $300+ a year to hang onto a phone number nobody uses, me included, since I'll be on the road.
As for the Corning Ware...come on, an issue with Corning Ware? Yep, it kind of surprises me too. My mom has/d so much Corning Ware and I rarely use it. Sounds kind of like the phone, doesn't it? I know I don't want any, or much, of it in Olivia because I don't want it rattling around making noise. While I'm not crazy about plastic, in a motorhome I think it's a lot quieter. Plastic is also lighter. But, I'm ignoring the dilemma. What is it with the Corning Ware? I don't have to get rid of it...there's another option...I can pack it and take it with me in the moving van. OK, I think that's what I'll do. Phew, I'm glad that's taken care of.
I spent most of last night playing on my iPad, downloading free books and checking out the RVing apps I have. I did buy one though. J.A. Jance's latest...Fatal Error. Like me, she has a Seattle/Tucson connection. She spends part of her time in Seattle and part of her time in Tucson. I've read all of her books and I'm a big fan.
As for the books I...is it uploaded or downloaded...whatever I did with them, I plan on reading library books as long as I can. I was one of the last to get a cell phone (now the landline dilemma makes sense) and I think I'll be one of the last to read books on an iPad. I got them just in case. Just in case I'm in the middle of nowhere, with not a library in sight, and no books. Horrifying thought. I always have a book with me. If I don't I start to go through withdrawal and I can't have that. Now I'm covered, unless I don't have my iPad with me. Since I don't have it with me all the time that could be a problem. But since I'll put it in Olivia...the middle of nowhere thing shouldn't be a problem. Because I'll be in the middle of nowhere, in Olivia, with my iPad.
I think I'm going to put you out of your misery and quit writing. Maybe I mean to put me out of my misery. Whichever it is, I'm signing off.
Loving the sunshine,
