Connectivity

Saturday, we had scheduled a 2-5 window for RCN to come and reconnect our DSL line. You may recall that we had to call them because our contractor seemed unable to give us a time as to when he would reconnect our computer line. We were clear at the start that the upstairs plans included moving this line but I guess it got lost in the wall shifts and such. So 4 weeks later and we still have no connections.

We got our errands out of the way so we would be home at that time. 4:30 rolls around and I call to say what’s up and the they tell us the tech stopped by and no one was home. What a complete fabrication. The guy just got rid of us and invented some bogus excuse. So now we have to wait another week for internet.

E and I had a nice snow day yesterday. We watched some Elmo, played with stickers and play-do, built and destroyed several impressive Lego towers. It’s a shame the weather was icy tundra or we would have gone outside.

We put new drawer pulls on the kitchen cabinets and I guess the silver pulls are too tasty looking. We keep catching E sucking on the lower knobs. It’s disgusting. I can’t imagine what might be appealing about them. They can't taste good and if the metal were to hit your teeth that's got to be unpleasant. Oy and Ew.

Ya, Matthew puts his mouth on our kitchen cabinet knobs ... weird ...
yesterday he was out in the back playing w/ the metal stake that keeps our back gates closed...
put his mouth on that too...
crazy kids!

Wish he'd put a bottle, sippy cup or food in his mouth...
he'll put anything in his mouth that doesn't have a taste...
little stinker.

That totally sucks about the DSL. I'd be mad too.

OK, weird on the sucking knobs thing. This is when blogging about your kids is fun. In 15 years, they are going to crap when they read these posts.

See now ironically RCN was great with me- showed up on time, did the work in ten minutes, politely, and out the door. Ya never know.
