moved and settled.

Finally got my required and much needed services hooked back up, A person has to have cable and internet. I made the installers job way easy by having previously wired my own outlets. (having voids in the walls and floors helped). No dangly wires hanging out windows etc.

That was after getting the 5th broke down and moved from point A to point B. Backing into the spot the 1st time was beyond fun,,lol  took 3 attempts, spinning in the gooey slippery Texas mud, and only final try, going…

Just a Quick Rundown of Progress
