I haven’t written since the end of August. Wow. August. Seems a lifetime ago.
As is so often the case, life tends to interfere with the best laid plans. My personal initial commitment to write every day. Not happening.
It isn’t that I don’t have a boatload of material. I have several mental storage units full of ideas and stories.
It isn’t that I am not motivated. Believe me, the motivation is there, too.
What ISN’T there is a consistent, always on internet connection to my computer. And the internet is always on. My computer just likes to pretend that it isn’t anywhere around.
I tried a little doohicky that you plug into the USB port…it worked! Yes! For like, three weeks when it broke and no longer worked. For $50, I expected a little more time.
I could connect my computer directly to the router, but that is housed in a room usually inhabited by a sleeping child. And what is the point of having WIFI if you have to plug your computer into a router???
So writing became too much of a challenge, and I just stopped writing. And I really missed it.
All those funny stories.
All that developmental lesson planning.
Chronicling the life-changing events of the daily mundane that isn’t mundane at all.
But that has all changed. I know, you are breathing a sigh of relief. And you are holding your breath waiting for it…
I finally got a WIFI Range EXTENDER!!! Now, theoretically, even though my router is only 20 ft. away and should be giving me a signal. FAIL. But the extender is right by me, and it HAS A SIGNAL!
Oh the freedom of not being tethered. Oh the joy…I can use my laptop in the living room! I CAN WRITE AGAIN!!! Do you hear me?
All that pent up garbledy-gook that runs rampant in my head will once again have an outlet. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
But what does that have to do with Saturday?
Well, my foray back into the vast blagosphere is happening today. Saturday.
And Superman is building the first fire of the season in the fireplace, down in the basement.
Oh joy. Happy, happy, happy!
It’s Saturday, and I spent the first bit of it with YOU! Hope your day is great. My sewing machine has been hollering for me all week, so I am now descending into the depths of my little cottage to continue what has started out to be a wonderful day.
See you soon!
