Feels like I have travelled back in time to the fourteenth century... or at least the early 1980s. I've just spent two weeks without access to a computer, while staying at my parent's place. They see no need whatsoever for modern technology. I have definitely had withdrawal like symptoms. At one point I even called my husband and demanded that he read me the latest entry from one of my blog buddies.
All I can say is, I am really really really glad to be back home, feeling like I inhabit the current decade again! (And that I am once again being treated like an adult, not a teenager, as my parents seem to still think I am!) The Boy is definitely missing the grand-parental spoiling, but I am glad to be in my own space, under my own house rules, once again!
We are winning the flea war, but it isn't over yet... I think we need the yard sprayed. Term!nix sucks. It takes them nearly a week to return phonecalls, and days longer to show up, contract notwithstanding! And then they do a half assed job. At least that's my experience. Next time I sure as hell am not prepaying the two year contract in advance! They seem to think since they got their money, they are free to blow us off. Asshats.
