I have broadband now. Just got it working. Everything's going pretty faster now, that's for sure. The only complication so far is movie trailers still don't seem to be loading for me. Wonder if it's too graphic intensive for my computer. Ah well, I'll figure it out eventually.
I'm also probably going to cancel AOL at the end of January if this works out well.
Sorry to hear about your loss Shan. I've never lost friends, but in the last 7 years I've lost my grandma, grandpa and aunt (on my mom's side). It's been almost 2 years since my aunt passed away and there are days when it still hurts.
Anyway, I've been busy and a bit depressed lately. Will's house-sitting his parent's house for the last week. I've gone over there when I can, but I still have had to go home alone. Add to that crappy weather, cut hours at work and physically not feeling well... it all added up to emotionally not feeling well.
I'm struggling to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Thankfully, books (finished the Dark Elf Trilogy in about 2 and a half weeks) and video games do much to relieve stress. Unless it's Sims, which just adds to my frustation. gr... Will bought the Ultimate Sims Collection, which has the original game and all 7 expansions. I played it so much yesterday that I dreamt of it all night. But there are worse things to dream about.
I just can't wait till Saturday when Will comes home. Then he can help me play Sims and keep me calm... er, well, calmer. ^_~
To me losing a friend can be almost like losing a family menber especially when they are very close to you. I lost a very close friend from high school when I was in college. She died in a car accident.
Thank you also for all of the thoughts and kind wishes for his family. I know they appreciate them. They are hanging in there and are doing OK.
Sarah, I am sorry things have been so rough for you lately. I hope your leg is doing lots better.
And I know what you mean about just being glad when Will can be back home. Chris has to travel occassionally with his job and I know how it feels to want him home with me instead of off somewhere else. I am just glad he doesn't have to do it very often.
Take care and I hope you get to feeling lots better soon.
