25MPH Wind Gusts Good for Something

Zach, peeking through the window

My internet connection started working on it's own this morning so I'm assuming that the installation provided by HughesNet contractors isn't as sturdy as they promised it would be (He dug a hole, stuck in the pole and poured in some quick-set.) The wind has been gusting from 20 to 25MPH since midnight or so, who knows when the next gust will put it out again.

Anyway, you can gather from this that I still have not seen hide nor hair of a HughesNet repair tech, and since they apparently can't be bothered to provide the promised repairs even after more than a week of promises, I'm not going to bother myself to call them to inform them that it's working now,,,for the time being. Maybe they'll eventually arrive to do the service call, whothehellknows?

I've been up since 3:30 a.m. My new furniture was delivered yesterday and I suppose because I moved some stuff around a bit, vaccumed behind and beneath stuff, I woke old arthur up to dole out some early morning misery. I've taken 800 mg of ibupro so now it's not as painful as it was.

I reckon I'm going to be needing a nap later.

I promised to post some photos of the snow and my new furniture so here goes (keeping fingers crossed that bloggger will cooperate). You can click the pics to make em bigger.

The Chick and Beans being snow bunnies.

My house

After her bath, the Beans snuck out to make snow angels in her pjs.

Abby and MeriKate have been rolling in the snow too.

Snowmen made by Jessie and Zach.

My new couch

The new dining table and chairs

I'll post a picture of James's recliner later. Can't get the man out of it long enough.

Loving the furniture and I've been looking for a new sofa for eons too. Maybe one day I'll find one that looks good, sits good and has a "good" price tag attached. Love the color... won't show dirt/stains/grubby stuff as bad. ;)

Geesh, from snow to floods... what's next? Wait... strike that... I don't want to know!
