Finally back online
Tue, 08-05-2003 - 10:37am
A couple of weeks ago we had a really bad storm here in Iowa. I mean REALLY bad, probably the worst I've ever seen. There was even a tornado a few miles away. Well, we had an electrical surge that somehow passed through our surge protector and zapped our hard drive, modem, and network card, not to mention the surge protector and phone jack. Dh builds our computers, so he was able to cobble something together from an old hard drive and a salvaged network card and our phone company took care of the rest. This computer is much slower than our other one, but at least it gets the job done.

One nice thing about not having a computer is it frees up time to pursue other things. I spent my time sewing clothes for myself and I finally got around to doing some regular exersize and watching my diet. I actually lost nearly 10 lbs. Maybe I should seriously cut back my internet time.

Lastly, tomorrow I leave for a 12 day vacation back home in Mass. I'm so excited. I hate living so far away from my family. I would give anything to be able to move back home.

So, goodbye from the middle of the cornfields and soybeans,

Well, welcome back and goodbye ;)

I've been away also, but primarily because of vacation. My internet usage is sporadic - it's all or nothing for me, lol...

Enjoy your vacation, it's nice to see family, especially when you actually like them...

P.S. stop blowing that corn pollen around here, you're making me sneeze ;)
