I’m down in Sandy Eggo county with my husband and my step-kids, visiting Grammy and Grandpa and their FABULOUS DSL CONNECTION! Yes, we still are only with dial-up chez nous. The DSL guru has not gotten back to us yet.
It’s nice to have in-laws that one likes to visit. I know not everybody is blessed with such a situation, and I know enough to be grateful that I have such warm and welcoming in-laws. I’m a bit sad to miss going to night church with my BFF, but I’m trying not to dwell. I’m going to make a quick and dirty list of ten things that I’m grateful for today (in no particular order):
I have nice in-laws.
I have a BFF in Shauna, without whom I don’t know WHAT I would do.
A nice neighbor agreed to watch all of the pets – dog, cat and fish – for us, free! (Thanks Holly!)
One of my tutoring clients has been making remarkable progress in school.
Vitamins. I feel so much better after having started taking vitamins. I like me my vitamins.
That BBC, the cat that used to hiss and not let you touch him has turned into the most awesome house cat ever, who loves to be petted and purrs like a maniac.
The weather has been cool in Cali for three whole precious days.
That I got to go out last night and talk about theology and life with two super smart friends.
Life is so wierd without internet. I depend on it for so many things now that I hardly know how to run my day-to-day life without it. Everything from the mundane (bills) to the meaningful (emails) takes place there. Sigh. One day it will be back. One day.
