Stinkin' Dial Up Service-my new post just blew up
My frustration level is near the limit. DH complains about the time on the net, but the dial up service is soooooo bad, that my posts keep getting blown up, and even looking at websites, the server keeps going down.
Have been trying to resolve myself to fact the facts that we live in such a rural area, that it is not likely I'm going to find employment. Augusta is almost an hour away, and there just isn't the industry there to compete with what I left in MD. (Accounting) The unemployment rate here in the county is now up to 13% and climbing. I am checking into re-financing my house to pay off debts and put down a sizeable down payment to get my husband a new truck, since the existing one is 6 years old and has high mileage. I've been checking on our insurance rates and have found that we've been cheated from our agent for almost a year, since my car should have been classed as recreational because I rarely drive it. The money adds up. I just called Progressive and they seem to be much cheaper. So, we'll probably change.
My dogs are well, considering that my miniature poodle who is now well over 15 years old, screws with me on a daily basis. And my two greyhounds are loving life here. L'il Bullet continues to get into scrapes and has had to have vet treatment twice in the last month. One for hematoma surgery, and the second for puncture wounds. And amongst that period of time, my husband went TDY back to MD leaving me here to fend for myself with 3 dogs.
I still have medical issues to take care of--my old ankle injury which isn't resolved, cardiac, and blood pressure issues, as well as severe migraines. I miss having my previous healthcare providers.
Don't hear from my SS, except rarely when he call to try and brag. He tells such outrageous tales, I wonder if we have "stupid" tattooed on our foreheads. And haven't heard from my husband's ex-since I challenged her a few months ago by telling her that with her spiteful and hateful comments to me, she wasn't making any sense sending me a picture of my SD (which I already had anyways from another source) and I also confronted her and told her that her that the supposed emergencies, she had to leave and attend her brother for his degenerative disease-he's an alcoholic were a farce. She was just concerned about him getting taken in a divorce action, and truthfully he deserves whatever he gets. I told her, I hoped she wasn't foolish enough to continue enabling him. So,life's been quite for a bit.
That's about all I have time to write since I lost my 1st post. Will try to write later today.
