September UFO Number

Last night our internet was on the blink, which seems to be happening too much.  Worse, when we rented that house at the lake when we first moved here, they had a 2 year contract.  We knew we wouldn’t be there 2 years but it was the ONLY internet we could get out there and we thought we’d be there 6 months but we ended up only staying 3 and not only did we continue to pay a hefty rent for the remainder of the 6 month lease, but we’re still paying about $60 a month for internet that we’re not using, plus paying for internet here . . which hasn’t been so great lately!   No one should ever accuse us of not doing our part to help the economy!   🙁

But last night, at first I could only get on and then I could also get on  What else really matters?  Oh . . yes, matters a whole lot to me.  I thought . . what if this blasted internet goes out again for a week and figured I should at least get the “What’s on the Needles” post up.  So, at 11:00 p.m., I braved the coyotes and snakes and jackrabbits and walked over to the sewing room to see if the internet was working any better over there.  It’s a whole different setup there.  It was working better but not graet so I quickly did the post before I lost everything and I made a typo — typed in August 21, instead of August 31.  At the rate I’ve been going lately, that was minor but thanks to a blog reader . . the first thing I saw this morning when checking email was a note that I had the wrong date.

Just now, I was fixing to type the UFO number and I typed “July UFO Number”, then said . . no, that isn’t right, and typed in “August UFO Number” and said . . no, that still ain’t right.  Either I’m losing what little bit of a brain I ever had or time is passing so quickly, I just cannot keep up.

So . . who among you is saying “Shut the heck up and give us the danged number!”?  Remember Vince is off today and my whole day has been screwed up.  I look so forward to him retiring!  🙂

Since I can’t think of anything else to say . .  the UFO number for September . . yes . . September, is:

No. 11

If you finished or made significant progress on your UFO for August, which was number 7 if I have that right . . please add a link here.

    Ohhhhhh, I hate it when the internet doesn’t work properly. And the prices to pay for it are awful, let alone having to pay for more than one account like you are doing right now. And yet, I love the internet, and blogging, and keeping in touch with everyone through it.

    My husband complains for what we pay for both cable & internet – on a combined bill, I ignore him. I chuckled with your July, no August, no September – yes indeed, time is passing TOO quickly. And I’ve been getting nothing done and even less now with a foot in a cast! And I’m clearly with you on when the spouse is home on a day he usually isn’t – yeah, I can’t wait til the other half retires either – I’ve already said we should buy “my dream home on a couple acres” in my home state, and he can ‘disappear’ any time he wants, to go do his photography in a mini-RV or tent, or whatever he chooses! Enjoy the long weekend 😉

    Intermittant Internet is one of those things that drives me nuts. Hope it gets fixed soon. Enjoy your holiday weekend.

    My husband has no idea how much I pay for internet or to whom. He just knows that it works when and where he needs it to work. Thank the Lord for separate checking accounts.

    I did not realize it was laready the last day of August and have not written my post yet, or taken pictures. I’m about half way done with my hexie quilt, I am determined to finish it this year, I have one more trip planned and should have lots of time to finish it then.

  6. 7


    Hmm, I notice you skillfully avoided mentioning your #7 UFO…:)

    I got mine done a day late and some borders short, but it is a completed top and that was my goal.

    Time is passing too quickly! And the internet is too slow almost always around here.
