I have been so aggravated with my internet connection at home lately. It just gets worse and today I contacted our carrier from my office during a break. He gave me five steps to take when I get home and three of the five I’ve done so many times it’s not funny. The tech I talked with said he could see that my connection was slow (duh!) and thinks if I initiate the steps when I get home it will be better. After an hour of going through all the steps it’s no better than it was. Tony, the tech, was very patient with me and has entered a outside inspection of our phone box and connections and if they determine everything is okay then they’ll set up a inside inspection. The situation is worse when you I have a really high speed connection at work and then come home and have to wait 20-30 minutes for a connection to my email or blog. Computers are wonderful when they work but when they don’t it’s maddening. I’ve vented now so it’s time to calm down and chill out so I don’t have bad dreams about it!! What I really need is for the weather to warm and stay warm so I can work outside in the evenings and not have enough time to get on the computer. There I go again wishing my life away! Enough griping, I’ll close for the evening!
Country Girl Through & Through
I'm a country girl from the western part of Virginia in a small community of New Castle/Craig County. I've lived in Craig all my life-eighteen years with my parents and siblings and forty + years with my wonderful husband.
We have two children, a boy and a girl, and two grandchildren, all of which we love very much. We live on a 500 acre+ farm that has been in my husbands family for over 200 years. We are raising beef cattle, chickens, rabbits and a couple dogs.. We grow pretty much all we eat or harvest from the farm and I can't imagine living anywhere else.
I love to create, craft, quilt, read, write, decorate, crochet, candlewick, bake, bow hunt, cook, garden, farm animals and walking/hunting in the woods. I love sharing our home with family and friends.
I hope you enjoy the posts that I enter on my blog and hopefully will be helpful and/or fun to all that read it.
