Bad Day it Twas
Was Obama born in the US ? See today's Pigeon Falls and get the answer.
Yesterday was one of those days one could easily do without.
I got up early so I could enter Quilly’s contest but before I could enter it we had crisis number one.
The wireless printer was down and my daughter who was going back to work needed some medical forms printed out.
So I worked on that until I got the printer back on line.
At that point my computer fell off line and I had to reboot.
Pennie still couldn’t print so she e-mailed me the documents so I could print them for her but she mailed them as *.doc files and I don’t have Microsoft Word.
I could get the words but not the formatting with wordpad.
So while she tried to find some other form to send them in I went looking for a program that would print *.doc documents.
Twice in that process I lost my internet connection.
Then I found one as time was running out. It was free.
I downloaded it and printed two of the three documents.
The last one refused to print. So I tried a Microsoft solution. I turned off the computer. When I brought it back on line the document printed as it started up.
So we got them to Pennie and sent her off with Betty to get blood drawn and then to go to work.
My internet connection was gone again. Reboot.
By then I forgot all about Quilly and started finishing up the changes to the Church website that I didn’t have time to finish Sunday.
Three more reboots and I was finishing that when I heard the door slam and Betty was back.
It seems Peenie needed a letter from the Doctor and it got left here.
But in the chaos left by five grandkids she couldn’t find it and went back to the hospital without it.
She got the blood taken anyway.
But as Betty was taking her to her office her Doctor called and need to talk to her about changing the medication based on today’s blood test.
I called her cell phone and left a message.
Betty called both the cell phone and the office, with no answer. So we didn’t know if she was calling the Doctor or not.
That’s when Betty started screaming because Maggie peed on our brand new couch. She had never done anything like that before.
I called a lady who indicated an interest in the old couch but, of course , she was not home.
Back to the internet.
Went finally to Quilly’s blog. Might as well have skipped that. I got the answer wrong and I spelled my wrong answer wrong so I looked even dumber.
Lunch time and we had leftovers from Sunday. I had a rubber hamburger and what Betty had didn’t look much better.
Back to the internet. Reboot.
Decided to visit all of friends links.
Got five visits in and suddenly blogger said my computer was sending out some kind of bad signal so they were protecting their customers from me. Then they wouldn’t even let me go to my blog.
Tried a reboot and that didn’t help at all.
So now I could get to the internet but not to my blog.’So I turned off the computer and pounded on the desk top. ( not really but I wanted too)
When I started it up fifteen minutes later it was back to normal so I went back to visiting blogs.
The only problem now was that about every six blogs the internet vanished and I had to reboot. It was weird.
At 4 o’clock I compared notes with Betty and we decided this was a spaghetti day.
We could feel the spaghetti running down our head.
But once named its power was gone and instead of crying we sat and laughed.
Through it all it was still God’s Day.
