The switch over to my new phone worked. Whew! There were a few bumps in the process, that I'm not really sure why. The first bump was they needed to send me a 6 digit code to access my apple account, but my old phone was supposed to be turned off and new one wasn't getting the code. Kept trying and trying. It wouldn't come thru my ipad either. Even turned on my old phone. Tried "other method" and that didn't work. Then it told me I had too many codes sent (that I never got). Finally I had to start over and then it worked. Then towards the end there was another time I had to put in my password for Apple and it kept giving a weird error message. Finally after about 5 tries it went through. Eventually, all my stuff was there and working. I just had to enter passwords for my 3 email accounts I have set up in my phone. I was very relieved it all worked and now I don't have to make a trip to the city to have Verizon do it for me. I think Verizon did a good job with their online instructions, for the most part. Now, I have a cheap phone case ($8) on it's way from Amazon. It's nice having a phone with a bit bigger screen and one that will take good indoor pictures. My old phone stopped taking good indoor pics quite awhile back. I'm also glad I was proactive and ordered this new phone before my old one died. Otherwise, I would have been in a rush to get a new phone and probably would have ended up spending more at the store on a newer model, that I don't really need. $120 for a phone, that will hopefully last me another 4 years, is plenty to spend.
The electrician who is supposed to come Monday called to check on progress, to see if he can start. Which then made DH have to call the HVAC guy and see what is up. He said he will come tomorrow morning and have done what needs to be done so the electrician can get started on Monday. That's good - will give DH something to keep busy with tomorrow while that guy is here working. Maybe he'll even find out what his buddy's issue is.......the good friend that pretty much stopped contacting him once we started building and we have no idea why. This guy knows him pretty well, their kids play sports/go to school together. Maybe it will come out it chatting with him, haha.
Lucy at A Dime at a Time will be proud of me. I earned $5.90 on M-Turk yesterday. But...then I haven't even been on there today. So, I just went on for about 15 minutes or so and earned $3.20.
