Dreamers World June 30 2016

     The afternoon is here at last. Just about 2 1/2 hours until.y vacation kicks off! I am excited and ready for it. I feel so much better today after Hal (person) gave me a professional massage yesterday evening. Although I am still sore from that, it is a good type of sore rather than the awful dull constant pain I had endured for the last week.
     As work ended, I honestly just sat and relished the very concept that I won’t go back to work until the 11th of July. This is a new sensation for me because I haven had more than 2 days off in well over a year. The temptation to try and do everything at once is nearly overwhelming. I will pace myself in order to rest and also to enjoy. 
     As for the Nexus 5x and Project Fi, things continue to go very well. I called Project Finwith a question today, and I found their customer service to be excellent. Rather than dialing in and being placed on hold with music and the recorded message telling me how important I supposedly am, I was prompted on the website to leave a description of why I was calling and was given an estimate of 2 minutes for a callback. I was called within a minute. With luck the case for the phone will finally arrive tomorrow and then I can really see how things work away from the apartment and our own wifi connection. Before that happens, I will go to the chiropractor tomorrow morning. I am sure that I will feel much better afterwards and then Hal (person) and I can plan out the rest of our day.  

Dreamer’s World June 29 2016 – Google Fi and the Nexus 5X Day One

     I am counting today as the first day with the Nexus 5X on Project Fi. Technically, I got the phone yesterday, but since the case I ordered hasn’t arrived yet I’m not taking the phone anywhere yet. Once the case arrives, I will venture out with the Nexus 5x and see how the reception is and how the network provides me with coverage around here.
     I love the phone so far. It is smaller than the iPhone 6 Plus but that adjustment isn’t a real issue for me because the iPhone was actually rather clumsy at times due to its size. 
     I am really pleased that the Nexus 5x also works with the iGluco BG meter that I have. I was prepared to switch to another meter since the iGluco, as the name suggests, was originally designed for iOS. But the app is available on the Play Store, and I can continue using this meter. This is just a pleasant addition to the phone so far.
     I have had no issues at all with the phone or the network thus far. According to my account page, I have used a whopping 0.01 GB out of my 3 GB of allotted data for the plan thus far. Of course, I haven’t taken the Nexus 5x out of the apartment yet, and won’t until I have a case for it, but I can monitor the usage very easily with the app for the phone. If this works as planned, I will pay approximately $55 a month. $50 for the service and $5 for device protection and replacement. Of the $50, $20 is for the calling and texting and messaging with the extra $30 covering 3 GB of data at $10 per GB. If my usage doesn’t reach 3 GB, I receive a refund or credit on my next monthly bill. If the usage doesn’t reach 3 GB I can always reduce the amount of data that I want as well since wifi data usage does NOT count against that limit. If this works out and I were to leave my current carrier, I would save over $120 a month! The key is to not rush into a decision based on only 1 day. I need more time to see how well this will suit my needs over a month or two before making that decision.

Dreamers World June 29 2016 – Nearly There

     As I make my way back from my morning meeting with the client, I am enjoying a glorious summer day. After the storms last night, the skies are clear and blue and it isn’t hot and humid, at least not yet. When I get home, I am changing out of the suit and putting on some comfortable clothes to get me through the remainder of the workday. Luckily, this is my early day and I will be off work at 1530. 
     Immediately after work, I am going to my doctor to discuss the results from the lab work that was done last week. I don’t expect any problems and then I can return home to rest and relax.  I am still suffering from back spasms today, and I am not sure at times how I will survive until Friday when I have my chiropractor appointment in the morning. I will probably ask Hal if he feels like giving me a massage after my doctor appointment this afternoon. Thankfully, he said that he would. I wasn’t sure that he would feel like it after dealing with his own job earlier today.
     The afternoon should be quiet around here and since I leave work early today, I am already trying to relax, but the back spasms are making that nearly impossible. I am getting things all set for tomorrow, my last day of work before vacation because I don’t want things piling up on me at the last minute, or while I am away to overwhelm me when I get back.
