We wish you much joy and happiness with your little boy.
It’s 10 full inches! I kid you not!
I’ve had this song going through my head since Thursday.
We got a new bed. A new bed! Oh my gosh! For years we’ve been sleeping on this piece of crap – CRAP – that looked like a bed, but was really little more than a glorified hammock. It’s a long story, the trials our backs have been through in the last 10 years and the how’s and why’s aren’t all that important here.
Anyway, our old bed was fairly standard height, I thought. Came up about 20” from the floor, easy to sit down on from a standing position. But this new bed sits 10” higher. This puppy is a full 30” from the floor. Let me put it this way – if I were a guy and wore guy’s pants, my inseam would be 32. Yep, I have to climb into this bed just to sit on it! I think I’m going to need a step. Seriously. It’s nearly half my height! When did beds get so freakin’ high? That 10” is the difference between getting into bed, and climbing into bed.
I confess, it is easier to make it since I don’t have to bend over as far, but still. I get into it more than I change the sheets. I’m think I’m going to look into steps.
Here’s a picture I took right after the delivery guys left, so you can see I’m not making it up about how tall it is.
My back has been saying, “Ahhh!” since then. Every day seems a little bit better than the day before. I know it will take some time for it to totally readjust from the hella-bed we had before, but so far things look promising. Woo! Thank you God for the new bed!
And even for the 10” too.
Yeah, I know what you were thinking there. Perverts. Heheheheh.
So what was the big cause for all the excitement on Friday, you ask? At least, those of you who also follow either me or my husband on FaceBook did.
Well, it’s this – we finally got our own Internet service, and no longer have to rely on the borrowed connection from the complex here.
Can I have a “WOO!”?
We found this awesome service, and we have 2 weeks to try it out and we can return it any time for free within those 2 weeks if we don’t like it for any reason. So that’s pretty nice. The price is reasonable, if we move we can take it with us, and heck, if we travel we can take it with us. Sweet, huh?
And sooo freaking easy to set up! I just plugged it in and there were like 3 steps and voilá! Online! Fast speeds too. The first thing I did was log into my favorites list on YouTube and start watching some videos I haven’t seen in a year. Like this one:
What a joyful way to wed!
And I’ll tell you a secret.
Remember when I did my own SSRLP? (Super Secret Real Life Project) Well, I finally got paid. And … and … and … I ordered my own computer! Oh my gosh, even typing it, it still seems so unreal!
For close to 2 years now I’ve gone without my own computer. You have to remember, Darc and I each had our own computers when we met – heh, that’s HOW we met! – so we were always a 2 comp family. He had his space, I had mine. But for these 2 years we’ve had to share. I think we did pretty well readjusting like that. But sometime within the next 7 days I will have my own brand spankin’ new computer. Can I have an “amen!”?
Praise God from whom all blessings flow, even new computers and Internet connections.
1TB. I’m still pinching myself.
Now I have to go find a spot on my desk to put it. My desk! I haven’t sat at my desk for any length of time in almost 2 years! I am so excited I can barely contain myself.
Get your copy of my husband’s books!
