Well I just took a pretty good fall on to my dining room floor. I tripped over one of my husbands levels. I feel stupid for not seeing it but there is so much crap all over the place in here, I just didn't notice it. My knee is so swollen. Ugh. I have it iced and elevated. I'm really sick of the work going on in this house. I know you all are probably tired of hearing me complain. I'm sorry, I just need to vent sometimes. It is frustrating. I'm going to try and take a nap for a little while. Maybe the knee will look better later. I can't remember the last time I hurt myself!

Yeah, it's the same. So I'm hoping to let my A/C rest the next couple of days.

How are all of you and little Harlowe?

Poor Chico. Keeping him in my prayers.

The repairman was here. When he ran his computer on the lines, he found a sustained short supposedly in the house somewhere and also something wrong with the outside lines. He fixed the outside line three miles from the house and when he got back here, there was no longer a short in the house. He thinks it was fixed, but not really sure as it was something he has never seen before. I swear it has to be because it is my house. He also told me that DSL is not an option as the lines have not been changed over and even if they were, the house is too far away for it to work. The phone is working now so I am happy!
