I CAN'T GET NO SATISFACTION

but I try and I try and I try and I try.....

For those of you who have know me for some time you know that I am a die hard blog reader! So being without internet at home before I left for Florida was very frustrating but with the help of Starbucks I was able to kinda keep up with my reading.

I was looking forward to a few days in Orlando (with not much to do) to get caught up at the hotel but that didn't happen! For some reason it was super slow and I was getting crazy pop-ups because the network was not secure. I cried :(

So needless to say I am way behind because I normally read at least 30 posts each day which would means I missed approximately 420....give or take a few. I have never been one of those who can delete all and move on. The reason being is that I don't want to miss a day in your life. 

Well I am hear to tell you that Mark's co-worker (who was in Orlando with us) had recently gotten a Verizon jetpack for WiFi which just sits near your computer or cell phone and he gave it to me to take to my dads house. 

Wasn't that just so awesome of him?  I am on it right now and things are running smoothly and I am so excited! I've got to send him a big box of Cheryl's cookies for this one......
So after Saturday when things quiet down around here I will sit down and spend some quality time visiting all of you. I can't wait......

We are going out tonight with my sister and brother in law. On Friday we are having a pizza party here with my sister's girls and their families coming over. (It's a great Chicago pizza too!) Then on Saturday we have a 18th Birthday Party for my great-niece Amber. Fun times......

Amazing how connected we are! I feel so lost if we don't have the internet working too. Sounds like you have a good weekend planned. Enjoy!

i love my bloggin also and i read faithfully every day, but when i take time off i don't go back to read. 3 days off, i just mark them all read and start back up...delete those puppies and enjoy your time with family and vacation time.
i never get to go any where, but if i did i would not be reading blogs..
have fun

Rebecca Jo said...

ahh 18... how fun :)
I panic when I can't check out my blogs as well... I get overwhelmed when I see the 'unread' counts get high!

Internet woes are awful. We have a horrible connection at home. I have to go into town to get anything accomplished.

Debbie said...

It is certainly a woe of these times...internet, lack of or a slow moving can just drive me wild. I don't read as many blogs as you do everyday, (I'd go wild trying to keep up, lol) but I do read quite a few. And I know what you mean. I am following along on so many lives and stories and it truly bothers me to be disconnected from them suddenly, lol. Nice of your hubby's co-worker though! Enjoy your day!

Hooray for technology that actually works!

Karen Mortensen said...

Glad you are having such a great time and got your computer problems solved.

Denise said...

Hello my friend, hope Amber enjoys her birthday.

Your grand niece is so adorable, Debby. Sounds like fun days ahead and I'm glad you got that thing from Verizon to make your blogging life easier! I know what you mean; I get a bet panicky if I fall behind with reading blogs on a daily basis.

The jet-pack sounds awesome! Hope you're enjoying yourself, and have fun catching up on your blogs!

Sandra Bennett said...

You taught me so much with this post. I never knew what caused all the pop-ups...hate 'em!...nor have I heard about a Verizon jetpack. Of course, that could be because I don't get off the farm much...ya think?! hahaha

Liz Mays said...

I have a JetPack which I bring with me when I travel too. It makes life so much easier, plus it's a secure connection. I'm so glad you're having a fun time and enjoying Chicago pizza!

KC Bob said...

That JetPack sounds great Debby!

I have been slammed lately with helping my daughter find a new place. So I can relate to being far behind on my blog reading. When I get home I am bushed.

Happy birthday to Amber.

Ceil said...

Hi Debby! I am so glad your internet problems have been solved. That is very frustrating, especially because you enjoy staying connected!

Hope you had fun pizza party.. love pizza! And your Amber is such a beautiful young lady :)
Blessings,
Ceil

When I have to be away for a long time I usually read the posts I miss but then only comment on the last one or two. Otherwise, I'd never catch up!
