What Happened to My Internet Connection Today?

Spring cleaning is fully under way. Dirt is back to school, not sure if he actually had students today, they always seem to have those non-student days.

So something April foolish was going on 'cause my computer would not connect to the Internet for several hours. Not a good day to pull this on Lanny. Cuz...

Seven days of cleaning, organizing and.. and... and going crazy!
If I start cleaning and organizing one room, then I need to take something to another room, but to put it away, I need to clean this room. And then before I'm done here I need to go there and straighten up that.

And just when I am really getting my mind wrapped around how everything should be organized, okay at least the thing I am holding in my hand at the moment, someone comes along and asks, "what do you want me to do with this?"

"Argh, what?" I just need to think and work and to not stop and make dinner. I have a quest, not a windmill, I will finish total and complete clean out and organization of the entire house, barn garage and make a perfectly manageable life by Wednesday afternoon next.

And I would appreciate it if everyone would get to work, do what I told them to and anticipate what I will tell them next. No more stories, no more whistling, no more singing silly words to real songs, just work. Really, I mean it, no more questions. But why did you put that there, for crying out loud? And really, honestly, no more needs like eating. Get to work and get out of that basket!

Its a good thing that getting my house cleaned and the old yeast thrown out before next Wednesday is not what my salvation and purifying hinges on. 'Cause I'm not sure we'd make it to clean and free of old yeast and if I did I wouldn't be in any mood to make sure we use the right dishes for the right food or whatever it was that they did before Jesus came and released them.

Ahhh perspective. Work hard, have a smile on my face, encourage others to have a smile on theirs, the inspector is not coming next Wednesday, just do it all as unto the Lord. Keep plugging away in an accurate manner.

God bless you and keep you Dear Reader, and no the bailing twine didn't break, the twirling fan stopped twirling and tomorrow I will bother to replace it with the appropriate floor stand model. Oh, the Doctor finally called today, I know, its been two weeks since they first canceled my follow up appointment. We had a lovely chat about how incredibly healthy I am according to all the blood tests she ran.

Nothing showed up in all the things that could be reversable or stoppable. So there you have it, numb toes for no apparent fixable reason. At this time we just let it ride, no spinal tap or further test, yahoo. But she said I have incredibly terrific numbers on the whole glucose thing, great numbers. Pass the cake please, order the jumbo swim suit and leave the health guilt behind. Just kidding. Kinda.

Okay, really I'm kidding, I am really working on the whole "do it as if your doing it for God" motivation and direction. Not my body I am feeding and caring for but His, so yes. even though my numbers are good I will get back to paying attention to how much I eat. And I will never buy the assorted plastic jug of Jelly Bellys ever again!

Now I'll say it one last final time for the evening, Good night Dear Reader, God bless and keep you.

Could I have a glass of water? Okay, good night.

Yeah, what happened to the internet? I called our ( yours and mine ) provider tonight and they said there were problems in many areas and they were working on it! Our son was trying to do his on-line school assignments and he too was having problems with it and he has a different provider...maybe the computer networks play April Fools jokes on each other?

Spring cleaning, I have the urge to totally clean and purge...just holding off on this a week! Waiting for spring.

Well, hurray that nothing bad was found in the health tests, but dang, what's makin' the toes numb? Makes me wonder. Hmmmm. But so glad no spinal tap, etc. We'll keep praying about that for ya.

Doing Spring cleaning makes me feel like Don Quixote and I'm fighting windmills. Seems like a losing proposition getting my place Sparky sparkley. :o)

maybe there was a scheduled outage? we have those here every once in awhile.
oh, jelly beans! i have a bit of an addiction. our local walmart has an off brand that sells for a lot cheaper than the name-brand ones. i just can't help buying them when we walk by.

I'm thankful to the Lord for your good test results and so glad you won't have a spinal tap. I'm doing a bit of spring cleaning too - off to Goodwill with the 1977 bell bottom pants!!!

I'm so glad to hear you have received good news on the health front, Lanny. Oh and when you're done cleaning there, you're welcome to come out to Ohio and work on some spring cleaning here at my house. :D

Love the photo of the cat in the basket. That made me smile big.

I do the same thing with spring cleaning. I get going in one room only to end up in another part of the house and then into another room. Eventually it all gets finished. At least the rainy weather doesn't tempt you to leave it and go outside.

Shellmo said...

is that your kitty curled up in that basket?? LOL!! Instead of a glass of water - how about I make you a nice hot cup of tea and a banana cream pie? :-)

Happy about the health news - laughing at the cleaning frenzy - I don't know who the inspector is so am envisioning a Frau Bleucher type woman with a clip board and checklist! My housecleaning is going in spurts - I almost got the master bathroom in reasonable shape. I need to work faster or be less particular when I actually DO clean house!
