This is getting to be ridiculous! Anyone who has been reading my blog for any amount of time knows I am NEVER sick . . but my luck seems to have run out. First, the eye, then the kidney stones, now . . a sinus infection. About the worst thing in the world for me is reading a blog with constant complaining and I feel like I’m there! I’m doing nothing but feeling bad and I don’t do that very well.
Tuesday I woke up with a sore throat . . just scratchy and sometimes it was worse than other times so I was pretty sure it was sinus. Yesterday I was tempted to see if the urologist would give me meds for the sinus infection but figured that was pushing my luck and I didn’t feel terrible yesterday but last night, I just felt awful. During the night I had fever. This morning, it was all I could do to get out of bed, take care of the chickens and the garden and drag myself back to the house.
I was able to see the doctor and I got a steroid shot, antibiotics and cough medicine so I can sleep. Ughh . . I have to get well SOON!
Once I got home from the doctor, I went to bed and finally fell asleep and then I heard the home phone ringing. I figured it wasn’t anyone I felt like talking to so I let it ring. Then I could hear the cell phone ringing and I figured even if it was someone I wanted to talk to, I didn’t feel like talking. Then the home phone rang again so I thought . . what if it’s Chad or Nicole so I got up. “Hello, this is your internet company!”
We have the world’s worst internet. We have “high speed” internet which is very slow and often doesn’t work at all. It’s so bad that we pay for two “high speed” internet services, hoping that at any given time, one will work. In the evenings when we’re both on the internet, every night it’s this conversation:
Vince: Are you on Cisco or Netgear?
Vince: Will you switch to Cisco?
Me: NO! It’s too slow!
Vince: You get to play on the internet all day!
Me: OK . . I’ll switch to Cisco.
Cisco and Netgear are just the names of our routers, and it isn’t the fault of Cisco or Netgear that we have problems. When you hear folk stalk about crappy internet in rural America . . trust me . . it’s bad! We figure it’s just the cost we pay for living in paradise.
I had to know the password for the router so I had to call Vince and he started . . YOU TELL HIM HE’D BETTER NOT MESS WITH THE OTHER ANTENNA and I said . . I don’t feel like messing with either one y’all so if you want to tell him something, YOU come home and you can talk to him.
Vince is now home. . the guy just drove up . . let’s home that by tonight we have at least one fast internet service. And let’s home I feel a whole lot better!
