2010: Why do you hate us?

Needless to say, this year has been pretty crappy. Well, maybe just January, and we are still getting the reprocussions from it. So, we just ordered Vonage. For the first time in our married lives, we are going to have a home phone. Why? you ask. Well, because our last cell phone bill was $250. What the?!? Why so high? you ask. Funnily enough, it was because we were constantly on the phone dealing with the rest of the crap happening to us (doctors, insurance, afaa, kmart--don't even get me started). We'll let ya'll know when we get our Vonage stuff and set it up. It should be interesting, but it's so we can use our home phone instead of our cell phones for all the church stuff, and random 1800 numbers we have to call to get our life back in working order.

We got our first home phone when we moved into our house and I really like it, especially for church and businesses. It also helps because my cell service sucks! Good luck with everything.

So sad! We use Skype to call 1-800 numbers. It is totally free. And a skype phone number is only like 30 bucks a year.

One of my friends in Pearland uses vonage and they love it! They have had it for awhile and haven't had any complaints! It's always nice to have a home phone to take care of 'business' type of things ie insurance companies/doctor's offices/randomness like that! Ü

i'm a fan of home phones and lower cell phone bills. in fact, we cut out one of our cell phones since all we really need is a home phone, the other cell is just back up. combined (low landline cost bundled with internet and one cell phone on minimum minutes) it is less than what it cost to keep a family plan on verizon alive. ha!

I hope your 2010 gets better! I have dealt with my share of insurance nightmares too, so I feel your pain at least in that category. Keep your head up!

ALRIGHT! You offered, so let's talk fitness. I go to 24 hour fitness, but I have such a crazy work schedule i can hardly make it to classes. I want help with a schedule and someone to be accountable to.... Email: keridyer@gmail.com
