So easy.  It’s been 6-7 years. The porting was easy.  I’ve saved so much over those years.  It’s only down when the internet is down but I have my cell. Which is what I use when I make calls anyway.  Really, my land line number is now the trash number I give out when I don’t want to talk to people.  I just don’t answer it. Only my FIL uses it, and he calls every Sunday morning at 10.  Otherwise it goes to voicemail.  And they never leave a message.

I have 38.8 download and 5.85 upload.  Only 2 of us in the house, so we rarely have that many devices running at once. 1 computer, 1 iPad, 1-2 TVs at most at one time.  Handles that without any issues.

In the DC area, even if you get the MLB channel, the games are blacked out. You have to have cable to get the Nats and Os (from what I’ve read) unless you fake you location using a vpn.  Not a big deal for me, but I have friends who are baseball people and won’t switch from Comcast because of it.

I got an Ooma, got to transfer my old land line #, and pay about $5/mo (taxes).  The landline was crappy anyway. Took me a while to make that decision b/c the land line was the only one that worked on 9/11, but cell coverage is better and Ooma is internet.  It works great.

I rarely go to the movies.  Last time, maybe 8 years ago?  However, snowcaps are for me.

I saw the Stones in Cleveland in 1981.  Damn, I’m old.  https://www.cleveland.com/music/2013/05/rolling_stones_in_cleveland_re_6.html

I’m hoping my regular tailgate group makes the trip.  I will be sure to let you know if they do.  The Mr. has picked out a beach town for after CL so we can further explore. CL has been on my bucket list for a while.  Although using the term BL seems inappropriate given your circumstances. My apologies.

DCA to Portland most likely. Hopefully DCA, as it is the nearest to my home. American and Alaska Air have directs.

An older article (2017) on visiting Eugene from the WP.  I booked my hotel in Eugene this weekend (limited availability) and we're staying the week after to tour Oregon, including Crater Lake NP.  https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/lifestyle/vacation-ideas/things-to-do-in-eugene/?utm_term=.1f98b50b0e71

I think I just talked the Mr. into doing a week out there, to include the game, of course.  Crater Lake and wineries sound great. We’ve both been to Seattle for work, so won’t likely venture in that direction. I’m not much for cities so Portland doesn’t appeal as much. Coming in from DC so will need to figure out where to fly into.

Ribs and bourbon. Probably tums.  Got a box of cookies from the neighbor so I may break that open as I stress eat.

I’m a civilian. I do all my work from a desk in the DC area.  I have never served.  I know many who have, and have a civilian co-worker who is presently working in Afghanistan, but he volunteered to go as a civilian advisor.

Navy has been writing paychecks for me for nearly 20 years, and nearly 30 for the Mr.

Go NAVY! Beat Army!

My husband gets me a cleaning service every year. Someone comes to my house and cleans it top to bottom while I am at work on a regular basis for a year.  This gift makes me extremely happy every year.

This is true. Waze app actually took us away from the traffic via side streets last time we were there  and it wasn’t too terrible (headed towards Tucson). Might be best to combat park near an exit even if you have to walk further.  

Combat parking near an exit was a great strategy last night getting out of that parking garage.
