Taking forever

Yes.  It has been forever for me to get back to this blog.  Nine months.  Long enough to have had a kid.  Long enough for Ellen to finish kindergarten and start first.  Long enough for lots and lots of things to have happened.

But what hasn't happened is our internet service getting any better.

And as long as we are on dial-up it's only going to go downhill.

We bought a new-to-us computer last week.  It works great until you want to do something on the internet.  Then it is so freakin' busy trying to download updates, it takes 30 minutes for me to be able to access my email account, to be able to open an email and read it.  I am in the process of switching to gmail, which is much less complicated.  But doing that on this system is a pain.  I think I will have to wait until I get back to the library to do that.

Yes.  Gary has called and asked about highspeed internet.  Nope.  We are out of range.  Never mind that our neighbor 1/2 mile down the road has it.  But then again, he complains often about trouble with his internet service, too.

It took well over 40 minutes for me to get on here to be able to blog and there is no guarantee that this will actually post.

Therefore I am going to quit now and see.
