New Stuff

Good news! I have my higher speed internet, but not everything is in place yet. We hooked up Jesse's computer to the new satellite and do not have mine networked yet. Maybe we will not do that until I get a new one - who knows. I am just so tickled with my new speed! I am use to going to a site, then going to take a shower or cook dinner while the site comes up completely. What will I do with all of this time I will be saving? I feel like a mother with a newborn or a kid with a new toy or a teenager with a new car - like I need to be careful that I do not break it yet I want to check it out and see what it will do. For now, I am playing on Jesse's computer in her room (hehe). I had to wait until she went to work as to be a good "roommate". Now that she is gone...the mouse will play.

Yesterday, the young man, who came to hook up the satellite dish and computer, was very cute and personable. Toby had told me to call him at work and tell him when the computer man got here. I did, but Toby was not able to get away from work to come oversee the setting up of the dish. Not that he really needed to be here, but he had thought he might could be. I called Toby (like a good wife) and reported all of the doings here. Toby seemed satisfied with the way the hook-up went. When all was completed and the young man was gone, I called Toby again to tell him all was done. I also told him how cute the computer guy was. Then, just like a man, Toby says, "Well, did you ask him this...? No, well why not? Did you ask him that...? No? Why not?" Now, I really hate it when Toby does this to me - gives me a mission, which I think I complete very well, and then he thinks of all of the things I should have done (computer questions in this case) better. It is like being sent to the tractor house to get a part. It never fails - I think I have all of the right info as to not look like a stupid farm wife, but then the partsman says, "What model no. is ...?" or some other question which I do not have the answer for and I stand there with that blank look on my face.

Oh well, I guess it is better that I looked stupid to Toby and not to that cute computer guy.

I know what you mean...

Yesterday I called the cable company to report our internet was out. When I relayed the story to Ernie, I said that I told them the cable was out. So then Ernie asked me all these questions and by the time our conversation was over, I wouldn't have given a sworn statement on exactly what I had told the cable company to anyone. I finally called them back to verify that I had told them the correct problem. I had!!
