I admit, I've totally been slacking over here in the blog world. It isn't because I'm taking a break from blogging, even though it totally seems like I have. I have been without internet until 2 days ago and the internet I have stinks. I mean really, how did we ever live with out the internet, I just don't know how we did it. I'm waiting on the lines for the better internet company to be placed, which was suppose to be this week and now they are saying it won't be until the middle of October. So until then we are quite spotty around here and the worst part, I don't get NBC with my new antenna that I had to purchase, however I do get several stations speaking Spanish, preaching hell and damnation and trying to sell me something.
Maybe I've been a bit lazy this week given the fact that I was suppose to be sleeping and feeling awful from chemo. But come on people, when it is over 100 degree's on the first day of Fall it's just to hot to do anything but sit here doing nothing, even when you have 3 ceiling fans and a box fan going and the A/C is having a hard time making it below 76. Oh and the weather woman just informed us that today was the 100th day of triple digits this year and the next 5 days promise 5 more!
Plus, mom is here and we find things to do like read books (I've got mom reading the Big Stone Gap Series and she is loving it), making lots of lists of things that we need to shop for and to do before we go to Disneyland on Saturday and Betty my sweet Camry decided to start making a ruckus today on our way to the temple, so we spent all afternoon and evening car shopping, which I hate doing, hence the fact that I've had Betty for over 8 years.
Literally as I was leaving the car lot lights started flickering off and on as I was hoping and praying to make it home before Betty totally died as I backed her into my parking spot. I backed in because I totally knew she was going to die and am glad I did. I've been told that batteries die in Phoenix more often than other cities, but come on really tonight of all nights. I was just grateful we made it home alive and didn't die when I turned on a yellow light and another car was coming right at us. I didn't want Betty to die in the middle of the intersection. That would have been totally embarrassing and I would have had to call my Home Teacher who is also my Bishop for help. I just hope that in the morning when my friend Cathy comes to jump Betty that she starts up and is drivable to the Doctors. Ugh, cars another reason why I need a husband, but really Cathy and I have been able to do things together like hook up Roku.
Cathy is my friend from High School. We have caught up a few times over lunch over the last few years when she moved back to Nampa. Interestingly enough, she moved to Phoenix almost 2 months ago and without knowing moved into the subdivision directly behind me. It's been fun to catch up and to have another single person to have lunch with, go to the pool with or call when you need help. Both of us are very independent, but I think we both would agree it has been nice to have someone around that we can depend on when we need help or a buddy to go to the pool with.
So there is a little about the going on's around here. I promise I'll give you a gigantic Fabulous Friday or maybe Super Saturday in the coming days. Until then, let's just pray for Betty to give me a few more hours of life!
