I’m Baaaaaaaaccckkkk!

My internet stopped working last Thursday. I won’t bore you with details about the numerous phone calls to Comcast, the trip to Best Buy to get a new modem and the 3 hours I took off work in order for a technician to come out. What I will tell you is that I fixed the cable myself. I told the annoying technician who lived in Canada that if my connection inside my house had not changed, then I am sure that the connection outside my house had the problem and that I could probably fix it myself. He said, “Well, if you had training on it I am sure you could.” That statement was all I needed to give me the confidence to resolve my own problem. I went out there, ripped the cover off of the cable box (it is barely held on by a screw holding the cover in place) and found my connection. It was spliced with another connection and that connection had a weird thing on it which I figured was probably the thing that was blocking my connection. I removed it. I went back in my house and my internet started working. I realize that I may be giving my upstairs neighbor free cable and internet, but I don’t care! What I care about is having access to the world. How can I read Chirky, Saurkraut, MIM, Dooce, Amstaff Mom, Fred’s World, EMAIL without an internet connection? How? How am I supposed to check movie showtimes and order a banana costume for an upcoming talent show? I am an addict and the internet is my fix – especially on the weekends!!! CRIMINY! I have to have INTERNET!!! If I were a Sesame Street character I would be the Internet Monster and I would devour large internet shaped cookies and I would have a theme song and everything.

So other than the lack of internet stuff this is what is going on in my life:

1. Marry Me is all in order and I would like to put everyone that I listed above in the Acknowledgement section of the book. I now have to ask them if they want me to use their real names or their blog names? The book is going to be titled Marry Me… 101 Reasons. I have changed probably 10 of the reasons since some of them had clickable links or copyrighted material that I don’t want to have to get permission to use. Number 101 is really an epilogue and the closing of the book and so it is a really long reason. You will have to wait for the book to come out to see the changes. Everyone that is acknowledged will get a free signed copy.

2. I am still going to Stonebriar church and loving it. However, I am vexed about possibly starting to work with the High School group there. If I do, then it would mean that I would have to stop teaching at the boy’s home. It is too much to be committed to both.

3. I am writing my memoirs. The first installment will be called “Work”. The first chapter is already written and it details how I started working at the age of 12. My first job I worked for a guy who looked like a thinner version of Santa Claus and often answered his door with nothing on but a cowboy hat and cowboy boots. I decided to write down the memories not only with the possibility of one day publishing it, but also with the hopes of remembering things about my life that I am starting to forget. This blog didn’t start until I was 27 and everything I wrote before this has been mostly lost. I am going to work on recovering some of that in these memoirs.

4. Work rocks. I have the best job ever.

5. I have to get a physical today. I am not looking forward to it. It is an insurance physical that my financial planner set me up with. I hope I don’t have to have my prostate examined. I am only 30 and at one point they didn’t start doing that until after you were 40.

Okay, I won’t bore you with any more details for now. Much Love.

I needed to post you that little bit of observation to say thanks once again for your personal magnificent pointers you’ve featured in this article. It is quite remarkably generous of people like you to give openly just what a number of us might have marketed as an e book to generate some dough for themselves, most notably given that you could possibly have done it if you ever decided. These points as well served to be a fantastic way to fully grasp other people have similar fervor much like my own to know the truth lots more pertaining to this issue. I am certain there are millions of more fun opportunities in the future for individuals that go through your blog post.
