What Wonderful Friends

Friday, November 12, 2010

We are moving in less than 3 weeks back to VA. We are in a very large community and we have made so many friends while we have been here. My good friend decided to have a going away tea/reception party for a farewell to me. I was so excited, but it is really hard to say goodbye to all of the people we have met and become so fond of. She told me to be there 15 min. before everyone. She had designed the cake that was made for me and there was so........much food (but I didn't overeat). People kept coming in and in all total there were between 35 and 40. I haven't counted yet because I have just been too busy. They had a present for me too and many cards. The going away present was so nice. It was a picture of the largest lake here in our community (we have 7). The lake had the steam rising and was absolutely beautiful. It had a very nice matting around it and everyone at the party had signed it. Such a thoughtful present to me and to remind me of my friends here. I will always treasure it as I will their friendship.

What a day (Only a small portion)

Thursday, November 11, 2010

This has been a bad week, but I will only tell about my internet now. Yesterday I called our phone company to have our phone and internet canceled on Dec. 2 because of our moving to VA. In the afternoon, I had no internet. Didn't have time to try figuring it out until after dinner. I kept doing all kinds of checks and couldn't find out what was wrong. I called trouble shooting and they said I had been disconnected....but only the internet, the telephone was still connected. their error. They would get me back up within 15 min. WRONG, I called and the business office was closed and told I would have to wait until 7:00 a.m. this morning. I called and was told that dept. didn't open until 8:00. There was no record of my first call on my record at all. I talked to 6 people (won't go into each of those conversations which were very dumb). Finally the last person says the program that would let them reinstall my internet was down and she had a note to connect me as soon as it was back up. I told the lady I had been with them for 5 years and that I deserved more respect than they were giving me with all of the jerking around I had gotten and talking to so many people. I asked for a refund for the 2 days and she said she would give me a $10. credit. Want to bet that it will be a charge of $10. on my next bill instead of a credit. We will see. I went to visit my dear little 2-year old friend and when I returned, I had internet.

Such a little petty thing but I have had so many petty things this week. I am weary. I have looked for the positive (as I always do) and I found it. Yay.

    Glad you are up and running again.

It is frustrating dealing with most places, I hate to even make the phone call cause I know it's nothing but the run around.

    So glad you're back up. I know you normally have great service with them and I hope whoever you get when you move here will be the same. Like I said, I've had Comcast for 13 years now and have only had rare problems which they readily corrected. Don't know if you can get them for just internet though since you don't need the cable or phone.

Hope the end of your week is better than the 1st part!

I am so lucky

Wednesday, November 03, 2010

I always talk about how much I love my emoticon's and I really do. There are so many pointers from so many different angles and so much support. BUT, I am really lucky to have so many friends other than my spark family. I have had 2 major surgeries since Sept 2, and I am still recuperating, and doing as expected with recovery.We live in NC and are moving back to VA in just 4 weeks from today. My wonderful husband has been packing us for 2 months and basically taking complete care of me. I still have p/t for the remaining 4 weeks we are here. The thing I am writing about being so thankful for right now is a friend I grew up with from grade school till current time. We have stayed in touch all of this time. When I told her we were moving back to VA, she insisted on driving here (6 hour trip) to help us get packed up. She arrived Monday (actually to time it to be here while my hubby went to VA to do some business on new house.) I am not able to help too much, but she got busy yesterday and got the whole dining room and most of the kitchen packed. I couldn't believe I have so much stuff. The china cabinet and buffet are just full of china/crystal and special "do-dads". All of these items have to be wrapped so carefully and she is doing a great job. Today the kitchen should get done and possibly the pantry. I know I have GREAT friends but can't believe someone would go to all of the time (away from her family) and come this far to help out a friend. Although, I would certainly do the same for her or any of my other good friends. There are 5 of us ladies that have kept in contact all of the time since grade school and still are "best" friends. I am so lucky to have such good friends and a WONDERFUL family.
