This is what my week has consisted of:
I thought I had successfully fought off the virus which kept taunting me last week but then it pulled a fast one and clobbered me Sunday night. I’ve spent the past few days blowing my nose, coughing, drinking tea and watching I Love Lucy. So far I think I have watched 33 episodes this week. I’m feeling better except for the lingering asthma symptoms and the back pain from all the violent coughing.
The worst part? We had to postpone our appointment to get satellite internet installed. If you are wondering why it’s been a month since my last blog post, it’s because we have the crappiest internet provider on the planet and our service has been down way more than it’s been up. I’ll spare you the details…mainly because talking about it raises my blood pressure. I know there can be issues with satellite internet – and frankly, that does scare me – but we reached a point where we decided it was worth at least trying something else. When you live in the boonies your options are minimal.
Hopefully by the middle of next week I will have a reasonably consistent internet connection and then there will likely be an avalanche of posts and pictures and giddy expressions of glee. Until then I’ll just go watch some more episodes of I Love Lucy.
