It's the little things

The internet has returned. I think I've gotten accustomed to those times when our ISP decides to stop working because it really didn't bother me all that much. I did have to make a couple of unplanned trips to the library to use the computer there, but really it wasn't so bad.

But today the library website was down. All day. Still is. That is bothering me more than when our whole ISP dissed us.

This week is vacation bible school at church. Skeeter and I aren't volunteering this year, so we have whole two child-free hours every evening. Tonight Skeeter made a playlist for his Zen -- a loud playlist -- that he can play during his root canal tomorrow. And I? I went to Office Max without the posse. I have a deep and healthy love for office supplies, so it was a beautiful experience.

Skeeter took me to the cell phone place a couple of days ago, and we looked at Blackberry and Blackberry-type phones. Now that we're actually looking, I'm overwhelmed by all of the options and possibilities.

And while I'm rambling on, let's talk Ben and Jerry. Have you tried the new flavors? Skeeter is in love with the Cake Batter ice cream. I'm having a hard time deciding whether I prefer the new Imagine Whirled Peace or my old favorite, Stephen Colbert's AmeriCone Dream.

And now, I'll set the coffee for tomorrow morning and officially go off-duty.

Glad your internet is back! The ice cream sounds wonderful and Blackberry Curve gets my vote. I love mine!

I am SPOILED by DSL!! HATE it when it goes down...glad you're back!

Whoohoo! Fun without kids! (that's not terrible, right?)

SO you and I have the office supplies thing in common. I am setting up a home office b/c I'll be doing some work from home soon...and I could get SO carried away with STUFF!!

Don't get me started on ice cream...but I should branch out from the old faithful flavors I typically choose.

Love my Comcast. Have and love my blackberry pearl AND I just had the Ben and Jerry's cake batter this week - WOW!! It was pretty amazing...YUM!!!

I have NOT tried the new flavors, though I would like to very much, but Ben & Jerry's, in particular, is like kryptonite to me. I have to avoid it at all costs, lest I look down and discover I've eaten a whole container of it by myself.

I do find it hard to believe that any of the new flavors could possibly top my very favorite B&J flavor though -- Chunky Monkey. :)
