Internet, No; Coffee, Yes!

Well, yesterday and today have been total computer frustration. For some reason I'm having trouble getting my usual network connection and my so-called high speed internet is slower than dial-up. So if I don't make it around to comment that's why. Sheer frustation. (Ssshhh, I don't want to say it too loudly, but personally, I think Laura is messing with my internet so that I'll get off the computer and finish my 30 Day Organizational challenge. But I figure my 30 days aren't up yet, 'cause you know, I started late.)

So if I don't make it around to comment that's why. It's taking me minutes to get on each of your sites and more minutes to get the comment page up, and more minutes to publish the comment page. But you get the idea. And I won't even say how long it took to do this post. Sheer. frustration.

But look what my sis dropped off for me this morning, and if you know me at all or have ever read my blog you will know how thrilled I was. Does she know me or what?

Sorry to hear of your computer woes. Moments/ Days like those can be so frustrating.

It might just mean you get an extra cup or two of that yummy coffee because of how long your time at the computer is taking.

Maybe in the long run, it will work out for the best. :-)

Seriously, hope the computer issues work out soon!

sorry about the computer problems, I hope it gets taken care of soon!

Linda said...

Sister, I can feel your pain; you know I can! I wonder what's wrong. Love the gift! Now that's why I've always wanted a sister--to give me gifts, preferably coffee and chocolate! Ha. Hope you have a great weekend with the fam.

Tammy said...

Oh, computer problems are so frustrating!
But what a great mug and what a thoughtful sister! :)

Barbie said...

I love the cup:)

Isn't it funny how quickly we have become accustomed to High Speed Internet. I remember having dial up and thinking it was the coolest thing. Now I would be sooooo frustrated with it:)

Hope your computer starts working soon:)

LOL, drat I've been found out!

Seriously though I'm feeling your pain and wouldn't wish that on frustrating.

But you know since you can't go round and do your commenting, well you might as well work on your project because I can't imagine a better way to spend an afternoon....he he.

PS: Love the mug!

Barb said...

It's so frustrating to have time to make some rounds and have everything slow down to a crawl. Hope that situation improves soon.

Lucky you to have your sister close enough to drop off a sweet gift like that. Bev and I have to do things like that by snail mail.

Linda said...

Ah - that gift ought to lift your spirits.
I understand your frustration with your computer. We only have dialup and when I tell you I read a book while I wait for things to come up...well you know....
Hope it all gets fixed soon!!

Beck said...

Groaaaan. Me too.
Hey, that looks tasty! Too bad I didn't live closer! :)

We are very blessed at our home. My daughter works at Starbuck's and she gets a FREE pound of coffee every week. And I don't like coffee. (Okay, don't vote off the blog - please!) But, feel free to stop by - we like to share.

I LOVE coffee too! I hope that computer problem is fixed quick. I get so frustrated at times with my computer. I think I've fallen into wanting everything so quick and easy.

Cyndi said...

Okay, you can just be thankful that your computer and coffee maker didn't quit on the same day. :::Whew::: What a sweet sister you have! Enjoy your gift (and happy organizing!)

i love coffee and yet one of the first things that gags me when I am pregnant is... COFFEE... but I am finally getting back to where I can enjoy it.

Okay, that is a half truth -- I have actually been craving frozen coffee drinks for months now.

Hope your computer woes get worked out soon!


Carmen in California said...
