Serendipity means a "happy accident" or "pleasant surprise", specifically the accident of finding something good or useful while not specifically searching for it.

I had a very serendipitous day yesterday and I have not left my kitchen since then.  Let me tell you why.

The Verizon guy came (all the way from Yucaipa) yesterday.  He was here to install our updated, faster internet.  While he was working on a cable on the wall by our TV he just happened to mention that he was also a DirectTV installer.  It didn't take too long for my little mind to go to work.

When the last directtv guy was here he undid the cable connected to my little kitchen tv to install a fancy, shmancy new dvr. Well, no one has been able to fix that for me.  I love my kitchen tv, I like watching the news while I'm in there and I just like having the noise.  I have missed my tv desperately! 

After the  Verizon guy said he could do directtv I jumped at the chance to let him know that I needed help.  He directly went to his truck, got out some new cables and got my little kitchen tv working.  Excellent!!

While in my kitchen he also noticed my little notebook computer which we haven't been able to get connected to the internet for quite a while not.   I have also missed my little computer, I like looking up recipes and maybe do a teeny bit of internet shopping while I am doing whatever I do in the kitchen (that seldom involves cooking).  Well, Verizon guy fixed my computer. 

So now, I have TV in my kitchen, I have my computer in my kitchen, which, by the way is 10x faster, at least that's what Verizon guys tells me.

I am HAPPY, I have not left my kitchen since yesterday at 2:00pm.  I have everything I need, food, drink, tv, computer. 

Serendipity, I didn't search this out.  It was a total surprise.  I love, love, love when those things happen.  What a great way to start off a new year.  I'm feeling optimistic.


  1. Do you use the sink or the trash as a toilet? Either way, that's just gross. You shouldn't poop where you eat. :)
