This month has just flown by and I have yet to do anything constructive. Harris County (Houston, Texas) property taxes are due on January 31st and it is always a challenge to find where I put them. Now I can not seem to locate the HOA (Homeowners Association) annual fee statement. Think I will just call them on Monday rather than turn the house upside down to find it. I used to be so organized, what happened to me?
I ran out of Internet Anytime data but still had Off-Peak available on DISH. There is no such thing as roll-over of data but somehow I ended up with 9.0 GB of Anytime at the start of this new billing cycle instead of the usual 5 GB, will need to call and find out why. Did they read my blog and see how much I complain about their service?
Thursday we finally made it to the beauty shop in Ciudad Acuña. Though we both needed a hair cut I mainly did it for Mom.
Afterward, we went to the newer Aurrera located closer to the tourist district. We usually frequent the larger store located in the north part of the city but it was getting late and I did not feel like driving that far.
I forgot to take my camera so I have no pictures to document this trip. The return trip to the US should have taken ten to fifteen minutes as the lines were not that long. It turned out to be a 35 minute wait as the lady border agent searched a car for the longest time instead of sending it for a more extensive search in the area designated for that purpose.
The weather has been foggy and damp in the mornings but by mid-day, the sun has been shining and temperatures have been in the 70's. We have only had two very cold days in the 20's and two in the 30's so winter has been kind to us thus far.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
My San Antonio Spurs have been playing great, in particular, the young talent. Was surprised to read that Lebron James called Gregg Popovich the greatest NBA coach of all time. Spurs fans have always known that...just did not expect to hear it from James...he is certainly correct in that point.
Just to show that I don't always bad mouth DISH, I was in hog heaven this week as they offered a five-day NBA League pass for free. You see, I also follow other teams in the NBA. Have I mentioned that basketball makes me happy?
