The internet and I have been reunited. Yesterday I worked late, got home at 7:00, and found that I had no internet connection and the television wouldn't turn on. So I had a piece of cheese and a very quiet evening, and we all went to bed.
This morning at 7:30 I called Century Link, and spent an hour on the phone with a nice young man who sent out a repairman. It turned out that the problem was in the line down the street. The nice repairman fixed it, and swapped out the old modem and router for a new combination one. We had a 5-meg modem and 10-meg service, so everything is running delightfully fast.
I ran and got my hair cut while the repairman was here, and after he left I took Abby for her next round of vaccines. She still has a bit of a sinus infection, so we're repeating antibiotics. She's up to 4.1 pounds now, and perfectly healthy except for the remaining sinus stuff. And oh, does she hate riding in the car! Jethro, of course, loves going for rides, and Hunter doesn't seem to care much one way or the other. But poor little Abby cries all the way there and all the way back.
I coaxed the television to work, so the end of this day is more normal that the beginning. I'll be glad to go back to work tomorrow and get some rest from this madness. But we have internet - and better than we had before - and I got financials taken care of, the office cleaned and straightened, and the floors swept. We should all sleep well tonight.
And it's wonderful to be able to talk to you again! I missed you last night. I've been talking to you every night for what - 37 years? You're a hard habit to break!
Happily addicted and in love,
