We had a minor tragedy in our house this morning. I woke up, came downstairs, sat down at the computer IN MY NEW RED OFFICE (yeah, you know, already) and clicked on my "gmail" tab.
And I got the dreaded error — Cannot connect to gmail. Check internet connection.
Grand. Let’s just say that is NOT the way I had planned to start my day.
I took the opportunity to make some coffee and read a few chapters of a book, and the second my husband, a.k.a. the computer man, descended the stairs, I bombarded him with this information.
Oh he was not happy.
So he spent the next hour, that he should have spent driving to work, working on our wireless connection, which is tenuous at best, for some reason that I do not understand. The cobbler’s family never has shoes, as they say.
My husband is the I.T. Director for a large company. Why we don’t have the latest and greatest and most reliable computer setup is utterly beyond me. But I know nothing about such things, so I try not to complain.
Any-WHO. We are back up and running now (Phew!) and I am all set to work on a couple of design projects and peruse a few blogs and… Oh yeah! I promised a giveaway today, didn’t I? That will be coming right up here in a sec.
But one more thing. THE SUN IS SHINING and it makes me SO happy. The weather forecast for the weekend sounds glorious. It’s supposed to get nicer with each successive day, culminating in a perfect Memorial Day. SO. EXCITED. Does anyone remember last Memorial Day? I couldn’t take another one of those, I’m tellin’ ya. I have discovered that my mood is tremendously affected by the
weather. Am I the only one? Do they make a pill for this? Just
kidding. Sort of.
So when I heard the weekend weather report on the radio this morning, I immediately said out loud (in the privacy of my own car — lest you think I’ve gone stark raving mad, which wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility, given the recent weather conditions and general bad mood I’ve been in lately for no specific reason), "Thank you, Lord, maybe I will survive this spring after all." And I can assure you, I meant that reverently and with complete sincerity.
