What a week! I love my new home, although I continue to feel very isolated. The lack of t.v. is not really an issue, but I never anticipated it would be THIS difficult to obtain an Internet connection in the country. We've run into one challenge after another this last week with still no final solution in sight. We were finally able to get a dial-up connection in place tonight, which truly feels like a real treat since it is allowing me to post my first blog update in over a week!
I've managed to come down with a horrible cold and a (shudder) bladder infection, so I'm just a tad under the weather currently. My sweet Jim brought me home antibiotics this afternoon, so I hope to be on my feet again shortly.
My husband and son took care of that tree yesterday that had fallen on my fence. Jim had gone to our small town hardware store on Saturday and bought a Stihl chainsaw (grunt, grunt) called the "Farm Boss" (LOL). The two of them were so excited to fire that baby up! It was just a small tree, but they were out there for over an hour, revving and sawing. They were probably spitting and cursing, too, although I didn't personally witness this.
I miss all my blogging buddies...please don't forget me. :-)
