A Real Quick Post

I just wanted to drop in and say I hope all my friends out there had a very Merry Christmas.  After FOUR DAYS of NO INTERNET (sob) I am back on-line.  We were at my father-in-law's and not only does he not have internet, NO ONE has internet!  Heck, my brother-in-law doesn't even have a house phone anymore because Bell South couldn't figure out why his phone line kept going out.  So they operate strictly on cell phones. 

Y'all cannot believe how backward it is up there.  Maybe I'm just so used to having all the comforts of the country with all the technological advances available to me where I live.  It was so bad, that I spent an ENTIRE day on Saturday, (no kidding, 8 am to 8 pm) shopping til I dropped.  Do not even think about asking what I spent!  I went to Michael's twice, Best Buy (got a new digitizing tablet I now have to figure out how to use), Goodwill (scored some cool stuff, just wait and see!), several antique stores (more goodies to share), AND Hobby Lobby twice (well, I ran into Office Depot between trips for post-it flags) - gotta stretch those 40% off coupons you know.  So anyway, me, the agoraphobic (yep, a card carrying, diagnosed agoraphobic), shopped all day long, 98%  of the time by myself. 

Got back to our house today, emptied the truck (the Avalanche was PACKED - entire bed of the truck AND the backseat were full), and while hubby went to thank the neighbors for watching the house and feeding the dog (the cat lives inside and has a self-feeder and self-waterer), I started measuring for shelves - I have a ton of Madame Alexander dolls (among others) that need to be displayed.

Well, hubby hollered it's past midnight, so I'm off to bed.

More to some later with pics.



  1. My father hasn't got the internet either...and no computer.
    I understand the frustration.
    Have a happy new year!

  2. Well, it sounds like you scored some great stuff in boredom! At least you weren't eating everything in sight - like moi! Happy Holidays!

  3. Happy New Years Eve! Just wanted to tell you how much I've enjoyed your blog this year and how much I look forward to following it in 2010! Thanks for following my blog, too. I appreciate you. Happy 2010!
