Difficult Week

It’s been a difficult start to the New Year for me for sure. For the past week my cold has backed-up and has been stomping on me terribly. I’ve gone to work every day, but I really haven’t been able to accomplish much. Even now I’m still aching and coughing almost continuously. I really just want to go to sleep and stay there.

Then to make matters worse, it looks like my internet connection may be a thing of the past. I live in a very rural area and have been lucky enough to have wireless broadband service through the city that is just a few miles up the road. But lately I’ve had almost no service at all. The company came out and spent a lot of time checking and it looks like I’ve got 900 mhz interference from somewhere that is totally wiping out my internet signal. The internet service company has only old outdated equipment is not likely to be doing any upgrading (they’ve been talking about discontinuing the service completely). So the bottom line is that they can’t help me. Trust me, dialup connection would be a lot faster than what I’ve had for the last week. If I don’t find a way around that, I may have to resort to dialup – which I really don’t want to do.

So there’s a lot of blogs and websites that I check regularly that I haven’t been able to get to for a while now and I don’t know when I will.

I also need to get back to my story, but lately I’ve felt so bad that I can’t concentrate on doing anything. Hopefully I can continue to post again as soon as I’m feeling a bit better. Doing all this from work is not a really “safe” option for me and I’m trying to do it sparingly.

So to all who check in here once in a while, I’m still here, just having “technical” difficulties right now.

Be happy everyone – despite how you really feel.

Your local phone company doesn't offer DSL? How far out of town are you? Do you have good cell-phone coverage? If so, you might want to get one of the new devices that gives you internet via that service. My wife got one from Verizon for her laptop when she travels and it only costs her $40 a month.

BTW, if you get the chance, there's new stuff at my blog I'd love you to comment on!
