This week has been extremely frustrating for me. Naturally, my doctor forbade me to do anything on the move except give orders. Unfortunately, this includes unpacking. Our help with the move also didn’t do much unpacking, although I got the kids to do some of the kitchen.
So I have been sitting all this week without television, without my computer, without access to my books, my sewing, or anything else, including most of my dishes. I have a tatting project and one book that I kept with me during the move, and that’s it. Not much fun.
Fortunately, my brother arrived toward the end of the week. He’s been helping a little; at the very least he’s another human being to talk to!
I did get my computer back online today, thank goodness! Once my brother got here, he was able to dig through the mess and find everything I needed to hook up. We set it up in the living room, on the coffeetable, because I plan to spend my bedrest primarily on the couch. My brother even bought me a new mouse, one of those trackballs, to make it easier for me. The internet guy came today to hook up our new broadband access that we can get in these apartments. The only problem is, I haven’t been able to get the network card I bought to work. How frustrating! So for now, I’m still connecting on the phone line to my old account.
