I am so frustrated with WiFi. I don’t have it at home as we don’t wish to pay more than we already pay for dial-up. When we are on-the-road we stay at motor home parks that offer free WiFi, which I truly look forward to. I guess you get what you pay for because this time it was going PurrrrFECTLY. Then, all of the sudden, CRAP. (Right after I told the manager how great this system was…KAPUT!) Then, it went back on late Saturday evening, just a tease. Because it went off again early this morning and has been down ever since.
Normally, I don’t think that one can actually jinx things. In this case, I can only wish I had knocked on wood (literally) when I said it. nOrmally, I’m not the type to FORGET to knock on wood when I say something that could possibly be jinxed. That is because, I’m cynical about “jinxing” as I've already mentioned.
That wasn’t what I planned to write about but that side-item seemed to get my primary attention.... I wanted to write about these adorable puppies I saw today. Sisters, they were named Sugar and Spice. Simply Adorable. It made my day.
I saw them when we went to visit my mother-in-law who is in a nursing home. We were sitting outside with Leroy, our chubby-ubby Cairns terrier, when I noticed a couple visiting their mother with two tiny puppies. These 11-week old darlings were so happy to be alive. The elderly mother of the couple….. not so much.
The same goes for my mother-in-law. She is not doing so hot. And, she never was very nice to me. Still isn’t, as a matter of fact. She gives me dirty looks. This has been going on for 25 years. I did want to visit her, though not up close and personal. We have always had a relationship of tolerance (in AA love and tolerance is our code).
Frankly, I didn’t like her one bit. She wasn’t a thing like my loving, kind, and sweet mother (who is still that way!). Nope. She said mean things to me intentionally. Oh well. Thank God we only had to see her occasionally. Today and tomorrow is a sort of Bon Voyage to Mrs. Decker. Maybe. Yet, there isn’t a whole lot of feeling here for me to express.
