I intended to start writing this post about 7:30, but my computer wouldn’t connect to the internet. I tried turning it off and on again. Shutting the internet on and off. Then I decided to call Verizon’s technical support.
Bad news is, looks like the built in broadband from Verizon in my netbook stopped working.
Good news is, I spoke with a wonderful lady at Verizon and I will be saving money on my next bill because I will be dropping the netbook from my account. I can still connect to the internet by using my phone as a mobile hotspot. I have the option of getting a jetpack or mifi, but it’s really not necessary. I can just use my phone’s hotspot.
I also learned about the Google Chrome Cast that I can use to watch netflix and hulu from my phone onto my tv. I won’t be doing that yet, but I learned a lot about how it works.
So what looked like bad news has actually saved me $25.00 a month so far.
Today I’m grateful for:
1. I had a nice quiet day and took a wonderful nap on the couch.
2. I made it to church to run the pro presenter, even though I was feeling awful this morning.
3. I don’t have to be up early tomorrow, so hopefully I can sleep in.
