The Crazy Suburban Mom: It took two languages to describe how much I love Verizon FiOS

It took two languages to describe how much I love Verizon FiOS

A lot of exercise equipment has lived, died, and been freecycled at my address.  I buy it with all good intention but the story always has the same ending; I give it away after a few months of looking at it covered with dirty laundry.  

 I got a Wii Fit several years back because, Finally! A piece of exercise equipment I will use!  My son has photographic evidence to commemorate the hour I used it back in oh-nine.   I don't know where the pictures are but I'm sure they will show up on his blog when he needs a new car.

Until I got Verizon FiOS the Wii's function was the same as everything else categorized as exercise equipment;  a way-station for dirty laundry.   Thanks to FiOS my Wii went from laundry dumping ground to, Get the popcorn! Mommy's picking the Netflix movie tonight!

Or TV show in the case of  Tuesday night.

Tuesay was the day I cleaned the pipes in my kids bathroom. I was shaking, People - And in need of some industrial strength soothing.  


I love old sitcoms; they make me happy.  I plunked my glazed-over self in a chair and thanks to FiOS watched hours of The Dick van Dyke show until my frazzled eyes were able to look at the world through Doris-Day-colored-glasses again.   

My family makes fun of my love for these shows (And shrieks of, OH! LOOK AT THE PYREX LAURA PETRI HAS! ) but this time I noticed we were all watching together.  I loved every second of it and even managed to forget the horror of the pipe thing for a second or two.  

There's so many reasons I ♥ FiOS.  It will take more then one post to list them but here's a few to get the ball rolling.

1.  The  Netflix Widget ...   Love.

2.  When my phone rings Caller ID comes up on my TV screen...  Passionate Love!

3.  I can begin watching a recorded program on one TV, stop it, go upstairs, click 'resume play' and it starts again in the same spot I left off.  Yes! On another TV....    And with Flex View you can watch rented or purchased things on computers and mobile devices....  Love!

4.  Their customer service department has been a dream and that's huge to me.


'nuff said.

5.  I turned my iPhone into a Remote Control with FiOS mobile which is more fun then a mother should be allowed to have.   Try this, hide the regular remote and then change the channel on your kid; you'll see what I mean...

 Thanks to Verizon FiOS Mobile I'll soon be even for every time I heard, Gross! around the dinner table.   Je  t'aime, FiOS.

I know, that was French but love in English wasn't nearly enough for that last one.

Oh, Ed uses that phone app for Fios too and he loves it.

I have seen every episode of Dick Van Dyke at least once. I used to work awake overnights in a group home for several years and Nick at Nite became my company for the duration of the shift. I always love Laura's "Ohhhhhh, Robbbbbb!"s

I get mine (FiOS) installed on Wednesday and am getting EXCITED. I just hope the install isn't as lengthy at they predict, 6-8 hours? Can't wait to try out all the new features.
