Welcome to my little corner of blogland! This is the only sane spot I can come in my crazy life! :) Here I share my sometimes funny sometimes NOT-day to day insanity I call my life, along with my sweet wooly hubby & all our boys :)

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; there is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.

How I spent my bloggy vacation OR Addicted to the internet in 1000 words or less.

*my internet was shut off! apparently if you dont pay the bill these things happen all the time! beware bloggers beware!

DAY 1
Well I turned on my computer and the internet light is red on my modem. Yep turned off :( I am officially turned off too. I frantically grab my checkbook and start figuring. Nope I am still broke.

Left the computer on, came in couple hours, oh well minutes, later and played the last 5 min. of a game I had d/l for a free trial.

Came back about an hour later and played the last 40 min. of my last d/l free trial game. Now what?

Need to get some ins. quotes for my kids' medicaid. Pop on the computer and do it? Nope no internet. Run 4 blocks to the library and boot a kid off one computer. Sign on, emailed Dizie of my dilemma. Tried to manuver around on IE to get quotes. Hurried and checked myspace also.

Cleaned my house. Finished my book.

Called a local dialup provider, but realize that is taking it pretty far, I can do w/out this...cant I?

Went to Bible school. Very crabby by this point. Addicted to internet much Melzie?

Kids drove me nuts. In bed by 9:30 with a book. Hubby rubbed my head, back, neck, feet. See what I'm missing when I am surfing the web all the time?! Decided to run spyware.

DAY 2:
Check checkbook again. Nope. Need to check weather, have to watch the actual news. That sucks. Need to see if my child support was paid. Cant remember the 800 number so I called my friend to check on the website. Nope no CS paid in yet. House is clean, laundry is almost done and its 8am. Thank goodness we are going to STL for J's appts today that will kill some time. Suppose to have severe t'storms today. Finally turned my modem off so that red light wont keep haunting me. Ran virus scan. I'll defrag while I am gone. Tomorrow I'll keep working on transferring pics to disc, I am over a year behind on that task. I miss you internets!

DAY 2 PART 2:
pAID my bill, but am leaving for STL. Setting defrag to go.

back from STL, GREEN LIGHTS ALL THE WAY YAY i AM SIGNING ON NOW :)

And how did YOU spend this week? Last night of Bible school is tonight (Fri). xoxo melzie

That's the pits, but at least it is back on now. You don't realise how much you use it until it's not there!
Loved your 5 meme. Tracey
