Disillusionment...

Yesterday was a bust. Neither thing I mentioned in yesterday's post happened. Right after I posted I started having to run to the bathroom (and I do mean run), so I had to call and cancel taking the dogs in. Then the Orkin man never showed up. I called the office around 5:30 and they had no idea why he hadn't come. He just called a little while ago and told me the office was supposed to call and let me know he was running some one else's route yesterday but they didn't. So he's coming today.

Eating was much better yesterday, mainly because I was afraid to eat too much. I didn't want to spend too much time in the bathroom. But that part of it passed after a few hours and the "feel bads" took over. I spent most of the day lying around. So far today I feel fine. Must have been something I ate on Tuesday.

The fun of the new Mini computer has worn off. Actually it is more like a disillusionment. That thing may be 3 years newer than my main computer but it is 3 times slower than the main one too. You would think that being that much newer it would be faster or at least as fast. Setting down with it and surfing the net is almost like having dial up again. It's not quite that slow but almost. My first thoughts when I got it were that I'd use it for the web and that way I wouldn't get viruses on my main one but I can't stand the slowness of it. I did a defrag on it last night and haven't tried it this morning to see if that helped or not.

Not much planned for today except waiting for the Orkin man. At least he told me he'd be here between 2:30 and 4:30. That's when he usually comes. Was going to take the walk around my driveway and take pics for you guys but the weather isn't going to be conducive for that until Monday at the earliest.

Have a great day!

Don't you just love service people? They'll arrive within a 5 hr. time period, then at the last minute, maybe they'll call and tell you they're not coming. I dealt with the Internet guy yesterday, so I can sympathize with you and the Orkin man.

Here's to a better TODAY!!

Hang in there!

I hate to hear that about the mini computer. I was hoping it would so work that way I could convince DH to get me one too! Keep me updated and let me know if you find out the problem

Hope you're feeling better now!

I hate waiting for repair people. The last few I've had were there when they were supposed to be, or called to let me know they would be a few minutes late.

Do you have other computers on the wireless network? If so, is the internet slow on them?

Is everything you do on this computer slow, or is just the internet slow?

I hope you're doing well.
