Last week I mentioned all my technology woes. They continued into this week. The copier got resolved, but then I found out that the fire system, which uses a phone line for monitoring, was no longer working. Someone came to fix it, but their fix disabled the fax line again. I told someone that I felt like I was playing whack-a-mole (which is a very disturbing game, if you ask me). Now we need a whole new system for the fire monitoring (cellular instead of phone line). I’m pretty sure that all the savings we’re getting with the new phone/internet plan is being eaten up with service calls & new equipment. However, the internet is about 99 times faster, so IT’S ALL WORTH IT. At least that’s the story I’m telling myself.

New scarf. One of my goals this year is to make things that can be part of my regular wardrobe.

The only picture from today – this is our recalcitrant copier which is now behaving.
Tuesday, February 5th
Furniture. I like this set a lot.
Wednesday, February 6th
My (early) Valentine from my Valentine – a necklace to match my current favorite earrings. From our friend’s shop – check it out here! (You really should check out her stuff – she has some fun, funky, lovely things.)
I had to laugh at this one. I posted it on Instagram & Facebook & said “Caption this. #tbt third grade.” I have several things to say about this. First of all, I posted this on Wednesday, not Thursday. Second, I look stoned. Third, please note the notch in my bangs. Yep – I tried to cut them myself. The first of many times – I got better at it.

I finished this audio book today. I love this series because it reminds me of my time in Zambia – there is a lot of meandering to get the mystery solved. Also, the narrator is really good.

The battery on the Bugly died. Please note the very conveniently placed sway bar right over the battery – Dr. M had to remove the fuse box to get to the screws to remove the bar so he could get the battery out.
While Dr. M was working on the car I decided to do a very primitive repair on his favorite cotton blanket (he likes to turn himself into a Dr. M burrito when he sleeps). I am really not very good at sewing, but I was pleased to at least stop the unraveling (for now). While I had the sewing kit out, I sewed buttons back onto two pairs of pants. I felt quite domestic!
I’m just not even going to have any technology hopes for this week. Que Sera Sera is what I say!
