Late Post

I had the horrifying experience of checking into a room only to find that I could not log onto the internet. This meant no email, no blog, no general messing around. I stifled panic. Sometimes I have blogs stacked up, most times I do not. I called and they did have wireless in the lobby. Oh good. The hotel is roughly the size of Dallas and we're in a room at the furthest point from the lobby - which is where you put the accessible rooms I guess.

So, I had a choice. I could rant and rage to no end. This is my default position and usually, I go there. But I could also spend more time reading, more time just relaxing, more time getting ready for the morning. None of those sound particularly attractive do they?

I found myself organized for the next day in near record time! I called a bunch of people but no one was answering their phone. So, the evening slowly made it's way passed. Up early, I decided to go to the lobby and write a quick explaination for being late blog.

So here I am tucked in beside the registration desk happily writing my blog. And I need to say ...

Even though I was only off line for about 12 hours.

I missed you.

I missed you too :) I woke up early this morning and was disappointed to find out that you hadn't beat me online today. Many mornings I start the day with a cup of tea and your blog - I am glad you found a spot to go online. What did we all do before the internet???

Darlin', you need a vacation...get some perspective. And not "a day off": you need, like, a week or two. No internet.

Not that you'll take it, but that's my prescription.

It was so good to know that nothing is wrong!

Shan's prescription sounds like torture!

I think we need to add another descriptive phrase to our repertoire when talking about you - internet addict. LOL Glad to hear from you Dave.

You have my sympathies Dave...

It took 4-5 days to get my laptop into hospital...

It felt like I was...missing a limb!!

All the best mate...
