Week from Hell

I was beginning to think I would never get online again. The internet situation in our house is about to drive me absolutely insane!

Week started by me getting ready for a huge consignment sale in our area. They hold it twice a year at our local expo center and there is always a huge turnout. I should have planned better but things have been so crazy lately I just haven't had the time to get things ready like I would have liked. I had to work the drop off on Monday night and had to have everything dropped off by 730 on Tuesday night. I worked for close to 72 hours sorting,hanging,pricing,tagging and loading over 200 items for the consignment sale. I have never been more ready to not see things again in my entire life(somehow I vaguely remember feeling that way last year too). I drove up to drop off at exactly 730.

Our house looked like a tornado had blown through here. It was an absolute disaster!!! I took me all day Wednesday to get it back to even semi livable. As soon as I got up Wednesday morning the internet was down :( Irritating!!!! I called and they said that there was an outage but it would be fixed within a few hours. Next thing I knew it was Wednesday night and still no internet. Thursday no internet again-I finally called on Thursday afternoon and they said they would be here Friday afternoon! Honestly Charter is driving me insane!!!! I am so incredibly frustrated with the internet and the issues that we've been having for the last month it isn't even funny. It's about to drive me insane-just when I get caught up on blogging and checking in with everyone else it goes down again. YUCK

So they came today and it's up again for now. I'm researching and trying to find out other options we have for internet right now. Problem is from what I have found out so far our options are very limited if even that.

I'm hoping the internet will stay up and I'll get caught up again soon early next week. We are getting snow tonight. Right now we have about 3 1/4 in and that's huge for us. Lucas and Jacob went to my Dad's house and Caleb and Allie are home. Caleb is going to be ready to build a snowman as soon as he opens his eyes in the morning-guess I better get ready.  I have no idea what my weekend has in store right now-my husband has some secrets up his sleeve :) I am so horrible about giving up control so this is HARD!!!! We shall see if I survive.

Oh Stephanie - I've been thinking of you and the struggle your life is right now. I wish I could come visit you and give you some company and fellowship. How frustrating to not have a decent internet connection either. The internet helps me stay sane somedays, so I'd be going stir crazy without it. We used to have Charter too, but my hubby got so annoyed with them. Fortunately we were able to switch easily. Hope you find something that works!

Oh no. I was wondering about you. I hope your internet gets fixed up right. They better be knocking a bunch off your bill.
Hope your Valentine's Day is sweet.
