So earlier today a guy from my broadband tech support team came out to my house to fix ongoing issues with the connection. It kept dropping. This morning, it was down for hours. I wasnt sure why this was happening. I have Efibre, so it really shouldnt happen at all. He looked at it, and then he said he’d test my line. He did that, and it looked like my upload speed wasnt set high enough, so he reset that first. Then he tested again, but there were still faults on the line, so he said he’d look at the phone sockets, and so he did. And what do ya know! The phone sockets were hit by lightning! Thats what he told me! When we had the last storm lightning must have fried them! So that is why the connection was dropping, so he installed all new phone sockets for me, and woohoo we’re back in business, everythings fine again! I was never so glad than when he fixed it, you should’ve seen me this morning when it was down, I had no clue what to do with myself, I literally was twiddling my thumbs! I could read, and I did, but that was about all I could do. He was a very nice guy too, very chatty and we had a good chat as he worked. So at least its fixed now. He gave his number to me just in case there are any more issues. There shouldnt be though. I was just stunned when he said the phone line was fried! I never expected that to happen!
When it rains, it pours. Case in point…
That’s how I feel right now about the amount of rain we’re having! I know this is quite a different take on the question posed, but…rain! I mean guys, its almost May! It shouldn’t be raining so hard outside, we actually had a huge storm last night, and now its still pouring down outside! And I gotta go out in it, as I have to go to therapy!
Storms trigger us big time! We were so scared during the night, we didn’t sleep well at all, tossing and turning a lot. There wasn’t any thunder, just rain and high winds. But still we felt really scared, so we brought Nitro on the bed with us and snuggled up to him.
That felt so good. Felt so grounding. Snuggling him always helps!
Writing Prompt #15
I am participating in Paulas 3 things challenge today.
Todays prompt: lozenge, mission, raincoat
My mission, should I choose to accept it, is to go outside, dance in the rain, with my raincoat on, despite coughing, and spluttering all morning.
I can take a lozenge for my throat!
My mission now, is to embrace the day, go out there, and conquer the world!
Weather and all!
And just dont worry if storm Garrett is here!
So now I am off downstairs, to make some toast, and a cup of coffee!
I’ve already had two cups this morning!
Nitro is so agitated! He’s really panicking tonight! Panting and shaking like a leaf. I thought it was due to us eating, he started it around the time we were having food. But he’s still going! And we’ve all finished ages ago! He’s standing by my bed now panting and nudging me! I am wondering is it because a storm is coming and he can sense it? I really dont know what is wrong with him. I tried to let him out but he wont go out! He is refusing to come when I call him! Im just not sure whats up with him!
There is a bad storm outside this morning. It started last night. High wind, rain, and the wind was really whipping up outside, howling very loudly. I wasnt able to sleep with the noise. I am very tired this morning. But I need to go see dr. barry and go get my shot also.
I dont really want to go out in it. But I have no choice. I hope I’ll be ok and manage ok in the bad weather.
I’m going to mom and dads today after I see dr. barry. I got invited to a lunch with the staff of friendly call today too. They are being audited and there is a lunch and they invited me to it. So I will be going to that today but other than that I wont be doing much else today.
The weather warning is in effect until noon. Its pretty bad out there right now.
Well my headaches finally gone. I’m so delighted. I had it all night. I wasnt able to get much sleep at all. I kept waking in pain.
Plus there was a huge storm where I live. The wind was very strong. Howling and whipping up outside my window. Plus there was heavy rain too.
Then my phone kept notifying me of text messages, of wordpress comments and likes, etc. I should have probably silenced it. But I didnt. My bad.
So I am pretty tired today. But I am volunteering this afternoon. I’m in the office now about to start my calls. I will be here until 5 Pm I’d think. I was debating canceling but now I am glad I didnt.
So the storm came last night, and now its gone. And we survived it!
I actually slept well! I didnt think I would! But when it came, I was still up. I stayed up for about an hour, then I went to bed.
The winds were really severe, and the rain fell hard, but we’re all ok, and safe.
Now its a new day and skies are blue! It looks like we’ll get more rain today though. We’re over the worst of it though so thats good.
I am going volunteering this afternoon. Trish who works with me said she’d pick me up around 2 PM. Life goes on!
