So I've not taken down any holiday decorations, except the village. Am I the only one? I'm officially blaming it on the illness I've caught but truth be told, I kind of don't mind what's left. Including the dead tree.

It's not brown, people, just dead.

I totally entered a time warp yesterday.

We went roller skating. Brown boot, four orange wheels, carpeted surfaces everywhere rollerskating. The rink, for not having had any significant updates in probably 25 years, had fresh coats of paint on the walls and was well kept. But still. There were disco balls and Kool and the Gang or something equally seventyish was blaring from the loudspeakers. I laughed out loud when I walked in. Until I saw the very updated price of admission.

The girlie had fun and the boy, showing off his (in girlie parlance) mad skating skillz pestered me to leave the entire time we were there (this is bore-ring, it's just skating in circles, how much longer, etc) and then told my husband he had a great time. yeah, okay then.

I spent the ENTIRE night, a few nights, ago, trying to set up a router and wireless card for the 'ole notebook computer. Dear god, I wish I knew what I was doing. Five and a half hours of my life that I'll never get back and still not successful. The router is in and I, quite obviously, have internet access and phone (I have vonage so NO internet access isn't an option for us). The wireless card is installed and seems to be working on the notebook - it gives me a signal strength and everything...it just won't let me connect.

Grrr.

But on the bright side, the girlie is at her friend's house and the boy is using up everybit of his Runecape Membership. It is blissfully quiet. And I've got me some Arrested Development to watch. Buh-bye!

Want me to ask the techy?

He may be able to help. You can always call and beg for mercy ya know.

If you have it, it should work.

SP - I like that attitude...if I have it, it SHOULD work.

I'll give you a call soon, but if you could run it by your own personal tech support, it would be much appreciated.

Oh man I'd LOVE to go rollerskating! I use to roller skate ALL.THE.TIME.

and well... since ICE skating is out of the question with this crappy winter we're having!

My suggestion would be to look at the directions of the router (seriously). There is some configuration you can do on the computer the router is hooked into. Also, be sure all your cables are in the right spots. If you have Internet access on your main machine, that would be a step in the right direction. If you do NOT, check the cables.
