Today I finally got my land-line connected! I longer have to depend on the (slow) computer stick... and it seems to be fast enough (in this small villiage it almost didn't have internet at all). I took the day off work today so the guy from Telecom could come and do his stuff.... and he got it connected with no problems at all.
The funniest thing is my new number. When I first read the letter with my number, I could hardly stop laughing! And everyone I told it too laughed as well.
Obviously I have a new prefix... no biggy. And the first 3 digits are nothing special: 740 (ok, my son was born in 1974 so that makes it easy to remember). Then the last 4 digits.....
My office: -6015 My home phone: -6015 !!
Honestly, I didn't request it! And it means that, even after I retire, I'll still have those digits to remind me of my job! I could probably change it if I wanted, but I think I'll keep it.... those 4 digits were mine for that past 15 years anyway! lol
I LOVE my new apartment!! It's coming along fine, still some boxes to unpack. Wheelie did a FANTASTIC job on installing my kitchen. Sorry, no decent pictures yet but I'll get around to posting some soon, I promise!
I really live in the country now. The farmers are harvesting the fields all around my town. We're still having a heat wave with temps between 90°-100° F... only one day of very heavy thunder storms in 3 weeks. This is so unusual. So the farmers are harvesting earlier then normal. After a very cold and wet spring, causing some crops to be lousy, it is now hot and dry and the wheat, corn, and other produce are not growing! Looks like price increases coming on.... *sigh*
Well anyway, that's a "short" update of what's been going on in my world. Yes, I've been reading blogs and even commenting (rarily though), but now I'm back in business.... maybe. The weeks of "abstinence" has kind of killed my motivation to blog..... I just don't seem to enjoy it anymore. But, maybe it's just a phase I'm going through. We'll see....
