stepping up

life here at the edelsteins
 has been expensive
 since the first of the year

 our miele vacuum died
 may it rest in peace

 my parents got it for us
 so
 we know
 its more than 15 years old
 we think
 it was a gift
 after 
we moved
 into
 the
 one bedroom apartment 
we currently live in 

neither of us
 can remember 
how long
 we've been living 

here

 i opted for another miele
 toonman said
 he hoped
 this one
 lasts 
as long as 
the 
now 
dead one

 me too

 we also bought a new airport extreme

 whats that
 some of you are wondering

 its the apple modem
 which
 enables 
a home wifi network

 the one we had
 is 
several  years old
 runs slower 
puts out less of a signal

 for a while now
 even after time-warner cleaned the 'packs' out of our modem
 the signal 
has been iffy

 having
 added a wireless printer to the mix 

 i want faster

 i am going to install it tonight
 i even read the instructions 
so
 hair pulling
 cursing
 crying
 should be at a minimum

 and

 i got the 'new' iphone 6

 i am writing this before getting it activated
 lets hope
 that
 goes smoothly
 and
 i don't lose anything

 crossing fingers


stepping up out of the past

  2. Hooray for technology! My Christmas has so far been pretty expensive too...but not in a fun way. New dishwasher, which self exploded a week ago, and a new roof. Don't talk to me about the cost of a new roof. I figure I could go for a year long trip around the world...or get a new roof.

  3. A little late but HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    You've had an expensive start to the new year! MWM was in a deep depression at the beginning of the week as the dishwasher broke! Thankfully we have appliance insurance so it was fixed the following day - he's happy now. LOL

  5. I got mine and activated it on Thursday -- I'm just a day ahead of you :)) I didn't have any problems. But I'm not sure I love the size. I got a dopey cover for it (will be looking for something else later). I'm thinking of getting a tempered glass screen protector ... lots of money flying out the window.

  6. A new vacuum do I have to wait until the old one dies? Can't I just kill it, push it in a corner let her run while I go to the beach?

  7. I had a Miele some years ago. I now use the Dyson Animal and I've been very happy with it. Good vacuums are so expensive! I've had the iPhone 6 for a while now and have been really happy with it. I'm sure you will like yours too :-) Our DSL quit working Saturday morning and we were actually without internet all weekend except for our phones. AT&T showed up Monday morning and fixed things. We can't get any faster internet because we're just a little bit too far from town. Streaming can be difficult at times but otherwise I guess we survive. Life is just filled with challenges, don't ya know?
