OVERWHELMED! WHEW!

WOW...what a couple of days here at the Galloway house!  One "little" storm and kapooie...we lost...POWER...PHONES...INTERNET...all those things one needs to "survive" in our world so full of technological necessities!!  SOOOOO...the internet was a fried router...I'm sharing with my husband right now...(thanks honey!)...the power came back last night after we got back from going out to eat dinner...whew...BUT, the phones won't be restored until tomorrow at 11 p.m.!  ONE "little" lightning bolt and kapooie!  Oh yes...and our Dish is messed up and our plumming is messed up...(plummer here now...but it is all messed up so he has to rebuild the pipes)...WHEW again!! 

The good news is...I'm getting to post right now before handing the one line we DO have over to my husband...and the pluming we don't have to pay for...AND we have cell phones...BUT...I've learned something as we've been trouble shooting with all these entities since Friday evening...NO ONE COMES TO THE HOUSE ANYMORE BEFORE MAKING YOU "TROUBLE SHOOT" for at least an hour!!  AND...the people we trouble shoot with are all from other countries and I can't understand but only every third word...Well...the plumber came; but only after the owner came and spent a couple hours trying to fix the sink himself first...WHEW...did I say that yet?? a big LOL...or I'd go crazy!

Oh, and did I mention my hair dryer caught fire WHILE I was drying my hair yesterday morning...:)  I'm happy to report I did not loose any hair! YEA!

SOOOOOOO...I'm off to buy a new router and get a Starbucks for all my trouble which means no time to paint on those wonderful cradles I built over the weekend...sigh, maybe this afternoon AFTER my nap!...BUT, I wanted to share a bit of peace with you all...even though I HOPE NONE of you had anything like our weekend...A gorgeous sunrise and a beautious rainbow after the rain...AAAHHH life goes on!  ENJOY...and

HAPPY CREATING!!

Another way of looking it is you had a wonderful quiet technology free weekend to enjoy your surroundings - what it used be like before computers. Glad everything is more or less back to normal for you.

Well, it can only go up from here, right? But you're right -- we do rely on our technology (and plumbing, lol)! Happy to hear that your house (and hair dryer) are all being taken care of....

Your zest for life is a lesson for all of us! You are such an amazingly positive person even in the face of adversity - when things go wrong, I'll remember this post. Bless you.

What a weekend of testing your mettle! Glad you both came through intact!
