throwing in the towel

Last week was just a horrible week altogether. This week, God has blessed me with more sleep and TONS more energy. I am praying that this is because baby girl is going to come early. You know how they say you get energy at the end before they come... Here's hoping to her coming early...which would be anytime after Sunday when I am officially full term at 37 weeks. Ready to be DONE!

I have been looking forward to today for a little while because today was supposed to be the day that we had the internet installed, or turned on, or whatever you call it. Internet guy came, was here for maybe 10 minutes, and said it was all clear to be used. Excitement! Our landlord came with the internet guy to translate since he didn't speak English and I certainly don't speak Hungarian. He told me all the important stuff that I needed to know that was in Hungarian on the paperwork we were given. Now I don't know how to do set up that sort of thing, although I could probably figure it out. But I thought I'd just let Kevin do it since he knows how.

We were taken out to eat tonight by Dave Hodges. Had a great dinner, and it was so nice to be treated. Seth was babysat for the first time since last spring. We don't have money to go out and to have to pay for a sitter on top of going out. :) But dinner was good, have leftovers for lunch, and a nice time all around.

Kevin got to work on finishing setting up the internet after dinner, and it didn't work. He tried every possible thing he could think of, and still not working. We got on the English speaking hotline with the internet company, and that guy couldn't figure out what was wrong. He transferred me to another guy who thought might be able to help, but after being on hold for 20 minutes, I just hung up. I wasn't about to waste whatever cell phone minutes I had left being on hold and not knowing if I would ever be connected. Plus, the English speaking hotline was going to close shortly.

We called our landlord and he is going to see if he can figure it out and help us. I am grateful for him (and his wife and daughter). They are very kind people.

But I am ready to throw in the towel with this whole internet thing (and a few other things as well if I'm going to be honest!). I have barely talked to my family or Kevin's since we came back at the beginning of August. And anyone who knows me knows how truly difficult that is for me. Ugh.

Tomorrow is a new day...
