Is it a sex blog? A mommy blog? A bitch & moan blog? Um, . . . yeah. This is my place to be totally honest. In my real life, I feel like I'm always lying to somebody about something. Here, I am totally honest. Brutally so. However, no matter what bad things I say about my kids, I adore them and would never ever really, say, sell them on Ebay. The husband, often referred to as Spousehole, is another story. Oh yeah - if you are under 18 (or if you are my husband), please leave now.

Still breathing . . .

Blogging from the library once more . . .

Seriously, how hard is it to get internet and cable set up? Apparently far beyond my spouse's capabilities. He signed up for something Bombastic, chose three potential installation dates, and even confirmed everything through a LiveChat with a Bombastic employee. Again I sat and waited, again no one showed. This is beyond aggravating! Now they want to see our lease before they send someone out, so they can confirm that we are allowed to have cable. WTF?! I have never, ever heard of such a thing. I have rented before and never had any problem getting cable hooked up without having to show anyone my lease. The house we are renting is pre-wired, so we don't have to have any new outlets put in or anything (which Comcast's website says is the only time they need to get the landlord's confirmation that it's okay). There are 7 cable outlets in the house already - why in the world would we need any more? The previous tenants have had cable - all the wiring is there - so WTH is the problem!!!

On a happier note, things are getting easier for me here in South Carolina. I finally have a SC driver's license - WOO HOO!!! And it only took a stack of 7 documents to get it! I also am registered to vote - I have the registration card to prove it. Now I just have to find the school where I vote . . . just kidding - it's right around the corner from my house.

Last weekend my in-laws picked Boy up and took him to their Florida condo for the weekend. Then Sunday afternoon we drove down to Savannah and exchanged children, so Girl has spent most of this week in Florida. She even went to Disney World yesterday - lucky kid!! My in-laws are bringing her by the house today (soon in fact - I need to get home!). I must confess: I really haven't missed the kid too much. I was able to get a lot done without her around. The house stays amazingly clean too. She's like a little tornado spinning through my life, I swear. But I didn't get as much time too myself as I would have liked. I ended up chaperoning a school field trip with Boy's class on Tuesday, Monday Spousehole was home (federal holiday), and Wednesday was an "early release" day at Boy's school, so he was home from school by 10:30 a.m.!! (They start at 7:25 a.m., which seems awfully early to me).

Spousehole still hasn't been interested in any "adult" time with me since I've been here. I guess our little tryst in July was enough for him in 2008. Maybe next year . . . In the meantime, I want my internet connection at home so I can work on meeting a new "friend" - not really practical while using a library computer. Even if I didn't see PiC all that much when I was back in Michigan, it was nice knowing he was available if I really needed to get laid. Without internet at home, it's hard to meet anyone new down here. Hey wait, maybe that's Spousehole's evil plan . . . .

Stay tuned.


To blog is a self-invasion of privacy

Yer idea of friend fits into my view nicely, "A friend is someone who hasn't screwed you yet".

SC sounds more backwards than SoCal.

Yes I would agree that keeping you from having internet access at home might be the plan all along.

Sorry that you are having issues with Cable. One of my neighbors is always coming over to watch TV at our place because Uverse won't install at their house and its just around the corner...go figure.

Glad to see you are adapting....

This cable fiasco has got to end. Now.

Is the lack of internet the 21st century version of a chastity belt?

ZigZagMan said...

Perhaps you need to find a special friend who works for the cable company..........:)

Why do I envision the spousehole strutting down to the School to vote on November 5th?
