2006....it seems like the year has started out with some major frustrations, at best, for many. I continue to pray for Kara's health and hope we hear something soon and also for Mari and her son and family. Penny had problems at Christmas also. And the miners in W. Va.....what a fiasco and tragedy for the families.
Today, I actually took a mental health day off of work and it's only day 5 of the new year. I'm thinking I should have gone to work because Megan was home sick with a migraine and in rare form. I have to wonder why small things frazzle me. Not that major things don't but I seem to handle them far better in a way.
I have my DSL up but it fades in and out occasionally. I have to run around the house and remove filters and change filters so I'm sure it must be something with the inside phone line or it could be due to the fact that Fed Ex delivered the package and left it on my front porch in the pouring rain. My front porch has no roof. I was at work so it sat there all day. I have to call Sprint tomorrow because I have to pay for this visit. I can pay 4.99 a month for line protection and that would cover everything. I'm thinking with my luck I should probably do this. It's $50 up front and $25 for every 15 min. they are in my house. Boy, what a rip. I have no other choice because Sprint is our only local carrier.
I had to go online this morning with my dial up and GUESS WHAT....I actually got a live tech that knew what he was doing. AOL was not recognizing the fact that I had a broadband connection. This tech actually led me through some complicated adjustments that actually worked. Surprise, Surprise!
But DSL is really great and fast, when it's running. I'm sure once I get the kinks worked out, I'll be poorer but happier.
So, I was reading Penny's journal Penny`s Place and she had a wonderful graphic about dwelling on negativity which I'm going to work very hard at enforcing in my own mind. Thanks, Penny...this is just what I needed.
Thanks for visiting...LOL...I know I have been quite unpleasant these last couple of days but I'm looking for the peace and tranquility which I know is just around the bend.
