I worked from 9-12:00 this morning and it was hardly worth going in, except that it’s always fun to be with and talk to Patty and Thomas. I work again on Saturday, so tomorrow I will just take it easy and do nothing.
I am really missing my kids this evening – they make such a big deal of getting together during the holidays and exchanging gifts, and they are just energizing and fun to be with.
I understand that internet and cell phone connections are bad everywhere so I guess my rant yesterday was like preaching to the choir. Things are no better today and my Wilson antenna is due to arrive on the 28th, so I guess I will have to just put up with these conditions for a few more days. I remember when dial-up was so wonderful and new, and who would complain that it was slow–just people trying to reach you on the phone and getting a busy signal for hours. Now we just expect better connections and for what I am paying monthly for phone and internet, I think I deserve better service than I’m getting on either one. Reading about the experiences of satellite users makes me realize I couldn’t deal with those problems at all, so I’m stuck!
I wish everyone happy holidays, whatever it is you celebrate, and if you don’t celebrate any of them (as I normally don’t) then have a happy next few days anyway! Actually the big thing to me this year was the winter solstice – just realizing that from then on the days would be getting longer, a little each day, until we get to Midsummer’s Eve. I have always loved winter, cold weather, snow, and cold weather clothing, but somehow it isn’t the same any longer. I want to be warm, indoors and out, but not hot. Now that’s not asking for too much, is it?
