No Internet, and No Blogger make Sandra something something

If you ever want a freak out, just have someone mess with your internet for a few days. That's what happened to me.

I'm sure you're wondering where I've been since Friday, and as much as I wish I could tell you that I was off on some exotic vacation, getting a tan and sipping Pina Coladas, the truth is that I was here at home....sipping coffee and keeping my eyes from twitching because I.HAD.NO.INTERNET.

My modem decided to break on friday afternoon, which is really not a BAD thing, it did force me to realize that there is a life outside the internet and blogger....who knew???? LOL

Seriously though, it was a good break, a forced one, but good nonetheless, I was able to catch up on my reading and watch some movies too.

But I have to say, the minute the little green lights came on on my modem, I jumped for joy and made a mad dash to my computer. I was like a kid in a candy shop, oooohhhhhh oooooohhhhh where do I go first, what do I do, should I blog or surf the net, check email or get more books??? Pathetic isn't it???? What we have become since the invention of the internet. LOL

Anyway, like I said, I watched some movies, one of them was "The Celestine Prophecy" which I have read the books and thoroughly enjoyed. Curt has read them too and loved the books but he wasn't too thrilled with the movie, he kept reminding me that there are parts from the book that were omitted from the movie. Oh well, I didn't have internet at the time, I could care less what was missing LOL

I'm glad some of you enjoyed the trip to Switzerland, I had fun doing it and it's great learning about new places, so I guess I'll keep that going.

I wish I could stay and chat more, but I will have to leave that for tomorrow. Curt is sick with a cold, Nicholas is sick with a cold too and feeling horrible, and I think (I'm not sure) but I think they're trying to pass it to me again.....HECK NO, keep it over there far away, I've had my share of this for a while. Only thing I'm dealing with right now is one of those pesky cold sores...I find myself not wanting to talk to anyone so they don't stare at my lip. LOL

Anyway, I will chat more tomorrow, got kids to deal with and mommy stuff to do.
Have a great tuesday and don't forget American Idol!!!

I was worried but I thought, well good grief, maybe she finally collapsed from all that energy she runs around with all the time.

Glad to hear you're OK. Sorry to hear the boys are sick. Hope you don't catch it. You've done your time with winter colds.

Cold sores are from you know where. I get them. I'm telling you, Abreva. Miracle drug! You won't believe how much faster it stops burning and hurting and goes away. It's expensive but it's over-the-counter so it's available. I paid $18 for a teeny tiny tube of it but I've had it for over two years. It works! Trust me.

I'm glad you're back. I have enough to worry about without worrying about where on earth Sandra is, for pete's sake. LOL

Hey Sandra! I'm glad your internet is back up and working!

Did you receive my recent email?

Steve is gone now. Olyvia and I are missing him alot. We still haven't heard from him. I don't think it has sunk in yet, that he's gone.

Have a great day and I hope that your husband and Nicholas get better and that you and Jasmine don't get their cold.

Hugs,
Eden
