Internet woes

Sunday, February 20, 2011

OK my friends. We are having internet issues. It seems the cable company has "upgraded" some equipment. We have lost a lot of our channels, and the internet is off and on. Even when it is on, it doesn't like our wireless router. So if you don't hear from me regularly, please don't worry. I'm still here, just can't log on. Perhaps I will actually get some sewing done now.

Life is good.

Glad all is working again!

    Internet is great when it works properly. I was having a lot of "slow' problems until I bought a new computer. Didn't realize how old my old computer was getting. Now I tried to open a file and couldn't so will have to get some "expert" help. Will sure be glad when I'm back home and have my grandkids available.

    We replaced a cable, they "pinged" the surfboard, and things are working again. Of course they did that yesterday, too. At least I did get some sewing done and (some) clutter put away.

    I agree. You may surprise yourself with how much you don't miss it.

    Funny how we find other things to do if the internet goes down. I might even read a real book one of these days:) Take care. I'll just wait until you are able to communicate again.

The braces are gone!

Thursday, February 17, 2011

Spent the afternoon in the orthodontists office today getting my braces off. NICE! I must say everyone in the office is so very sweet, I'll almost miss seeing them regularly. I did get a permanent retainer on the bottom, but just the clear one for the top. Gotta wear it 10 hours a day ...... forever. I'll have to think about the forever part, but will make it for at least a year.

Sure is nice to be able to bite an apple again.
Life is good.

    I know you are thrilled!

They just had a free medical clinic here in TN someplace..and it included dental. A lady had her braces off...had them put on when she was 13 and she is now 34. Can you imagine!!?? I bet she is thrilled, too.

Wear that retainer...I took mine out to be in a wedding...and within a short time, I couldn't get it back on again! (I was 13 at the time).

You look terrific! emoticon

  Yeah! I remember getting mine off--about 10 years ago. I wore my retainer 24/7 for about a year, thinking that then it would be history. Then they told me had to keep it 24/7! No way! That was as bad as having the braces! Night time is best for the 10 hours. Also, you will still need to use your threader floss to get under that permanent retainer. But it is nowhere near as bad as flossing with full braces.

Go You! emoticon

    Having beautiful teeth when you smile is so important! It makes you feel good! And yes... the *forever* part is a little... optimistic, haha. I think I wore mine for about three months and then never again. Congrats!!!

What a beautiful Sunday

Sunday, January 30, 2011

We had a nice service at church today. The grands were is a great mood and the preacher was especially good. After lunch we went to DH's cousin's son's house. He was having a surprise birthday party for his mom and aunt. It wasn't easy getting his aunt and her family from DC for it, but they pulled it off. It was warm enough to open the house and enjoy the fresh air. The kids went to the park and played frisby, the adults sat around and talked about old times, kids and grand kids.

Life is good, family is great.

    Beverly, that sounds like a wonderful day, yesterday. I am so glad you all had a good time with family, a good church service, too. I miss seeing you. Give me a call or e-mail the night before you want to ride (not in this weather today), so I can go with you. emoticon

Yard sale is over, now back to normal?

Saturday, January 29, 2011

DD#2 spent the night at #1's house so they could keep an eye on the yard sale stuff in the yard. I got up at 5 and went over about 5:30, and the first customer showed up about 6:15, just as we were folding up the tarps. By 11 just about everything was gone, so we packed up what little remained and took to the local donation center. There was barely half a pick-up load, we were all pleased.

The grands came home with us and the oldest practiced with his bow and arrow (gotta get him a better bow) and the youngest played around till supper. It was a beautiful day and warm evening, so we had a treat and toasted some marshmallows before bath. After I put them to bed I got on the trainer and got 30 minutes riding in. They are now fast asleep (I'm not far behind).

Life is good.

Another short ride and yard sale time.

Friday, January 28, 2011

We got out and rode before lunch today. It was cold and windy again, so we went slow and only rode about an hour. But it was nice to be out for the 3rd time this week.

After lunch we started moving things for the yard sale. It took two trips with car and the truck and trailer to get every thing, but we did. People started showing up as soon as we began to unload. So far we have sold most of the furniture, all the TVs, and the washer and dryer. And no haggling over prices, so all is good. Hopefully everything will go quickly tomorrow.

Life is good.
