This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

My creativity going down in flames...

Blasted out of the sheets at 6am and busied myself getting household chores out of the way for the weekend.
Met my girlfriend for lunch at Chilis.  She works at Curves and I used to be a member.  I had called to purchase their protein powder.  Ever since my sister was here visiting, and taking her Herbalife shakes, I started doing the protein shakes too.  My friend was nice enough to offer to purchase it for me with her discount.  We met today to catch up...

My husband has a dinner meeting tonight and his friend is driving out from California, to stay with us. After our lunch, I had a few errands to run, then planned on coming home to have a nice evening with myself. I was looking forward to finishing Hearts and Flowers.

I walked in, put my bags down, went to the office to check my email, and noticed a blinking red light on the router.  Checked further... NO INTERNET!  It was perfectly fine this morning.

Called Embarq, which is now Century Link, and talked with tech support.The Bozo tells me I blew a circuit.  Interesting, since no other electrical device in the house is affected. Ironic that it "goes out" 6 days after the merge of Embarq and Century Tel...He told me I had to take my current router down to the Century Link store and exchange it for a new router.  No charge of course.

So I drove down the hill, picked up the new router, brought it home and installed it.  Connected both my desktop and my laptop, then drank my shake for dinner. Now I am fighting to keep my eyes open... I am struggling to write something remotely interesting, and it is eluding me. I had my whole evening all mapped out...only to go in the opposite direction, with my creativity going down in flames...

Hi Donna, just catching up on some of your more recent blogs. Sounds like you have been haveing a bit of a rought time with some little sparkles in between. I lost my Dad to Cancer way back in 1976 and I couldn't be close as I lived 800 miles away so I can understand a little of how you feel not being close to a loved one when they are ill.
I have read a few of Dan Browns books and enjoyed them all. After reading Angels and Demons I saw the movie on the cruise and thought both the book and the movie were great. I was introduced to books by Nora Roberts on the cruise and read quite a few of them. They are an easy read and all seem to end "happily ever after".

Hi Marcella...I too enjoy Nora Roberts. That had to be absolutely incredible and so relaxing to be on a cruise for 3 months!!! Holy moly! I have only been on an 8 day cruise and it was WON-DER-FUL!
