After wrestling with the Netgear router (another hour of my life wasted away), I returned it at Best Buy this evening, picked up a new Linksys router, and a new wireless adapter. Our adapters are pretty old, but have held out for years, but I had a feeling we were due for at least one new one.
Only 45 minutes of playing with the equipment (and $74 later), and I had our new home network working. I think the husband’s computer is running a little faster too (he got the new adapter – mine was replaced last December.) Quite the price, but I also added a 2-year warranty on the router, since we’re replacing them on a yearly basis! Crazy!
My brother has been in town since last Thursday, and I’ve gotten to hang out with him a little bit this week. We saw him Saturday night, and a little while each day. Today I went to see ‘The Blind Side’ with him. I feel bad that I didn’t get to spend any more time with him this week, but work would NOT stop bothering me, and they sucked a lot of my vacation time away. (I did have to work most of Monday, but I was supposed to be work-free on Tuesday and today – and tomorrow….we’ll see how that goes.)
I have all sorts of posts in my head. Stuff I want to share and recap from the past year. That’ll have to come later this week. For now, I’m going to go enjoy my living room, a room I haven’t seen much of because of computer woes.
Hope you’re having a great week!
