Internet Issues

Hey everybody! Sorry I haven't been around much. Mom has bee busy helping Aunt Gillian get her restaurant started and we've been having internet issues. For about a week now our highspeed internet has seemed really slow to us. Mom said it was like a cable wasn't plugged in all the way or something. Yesterday mom didn't feel good so we curled up on the couch to watch t.v. and at 10:15 we lost cable, internet completely and phone. That's the problem when you do one of those bundle things. Dad had to call the cable company from work because cellphones don't work at our house very well and they couldn't hear Mom. The guy told Dad it was us with the problem and if he sent someone out he would charge us for a service call since he couldn't talk to anybody at the house. HELLO!!! No phone dummy!!!!! So we waited until Dad came home from work and his cellphone that he uses for work usually waits at our house and when Dad walked around the house he saw the cable to our house was laying in the street. So my message to the first guy Dad talked to yesterday is..... DUMMY!!!!!!!
We haven't been doing much exciting lately. The wind has made it so we can't go on walks and if Mom isn't working on Aunt Gillian's stuff, then she's researching worms online (more on that on a later post). The Easter Bunny brought us some cool toys and treats! Here are some pictures of the cool toys!
Sasha got a squirrel.

I got a goose.

The goose no longer makes a noise because Sasha had to preform surgery. I also like to play with the squirrel. Mom says we are really good at sharing our toys.
We had some snow on Easter, but Mom said it was good snow because it was really wet and we needed the wet. The wind we've been having has really been drying stuff up. All around our house there are dirt roads and across the street is a pasture area that is mostly dirt so when the wind blows, it makes the dirt swirl around. That's why we haven't been going on walks lately. mom doesn't want to get caught in one of those dirt swirls. I don't' blame her. Sasha and I don't hang out outside very long when it's windy. Today it's raining and thundering. I really don't like the thunder, but we really need the rain. Mom's tulips are very happy to be getting the rain. Her rose bushes and lilac bushes are liking it, too. A little bit ago Mom looked outside and says all her plants look so happy and green. Mom talks to her plants a lot and is always telling us when they're happy and sad. Usually we think she's a crazy woman, but when I ran outside really quick to do my business a little bit ago, I swear the little lilac bush was smiling at me. I hope that doesn't mean I'm becoming as crazy as my Mom since we've been spending so much time together.
Oh, Mom said to tell everybody he unemployment money finally started coming so her and Dad are way less stressed about that now. Thanks for all the crossed fingers and good thoughts sent to us!!!
That's all going on right now. I have a bunch of blogs to catch up on and I'm going to watch the rain and see if I can see any more of Mom's plants smiling. Have a great weekend everybody!!! Let me know if you see any smiling plants.

Hi, Kaos!
We had the same problem during the day!
No cable, no internet, no phone!
Thankfully when my mom came from work it had been fixed! We can live without tv or phone but without internet?? No way!
My grandma has 2 plants. And she talks to them all the time too!
Glad you two got toys! Have fun with them!
Kisses and hugs

PS Glad your mom is getting the money now!


Hi Kaos & Sasha,

Mommy never knew the words to Taps so it was really nice to know them.

Everybody in the neighborhood has flowers with smiling faces but we don't got nothing. Mommy is very disappointed.

Jave a good weekend.....Mona

I hate when the internet is out, we were having issues the other day it would be then down and then up and then down ALL Day long! very annoying. glad you are back now and that you got great presents while on sabbatical.

Mango said...

cable on the street? Your data must have all spilled out of it. That sounds bad.


P.S. Our barn is as big as our house if you leave out the basement.

The Army of Four said...

Woo. I saw "Sasha got a squirrel" before I realized it as a stuffie one. I was almost afraid to read on!
PS: Check my post out today - you can hear real gooses!

Joe Stains said...

Mom keeps separate phone service for that reason you guys experienced. What a total pain in the butt! We are glad the unemployment money is helping, we don't want anybody being stressed and unhappy :(

Scottie the 'cutie' said...

Oh dear...the cable guy sure sounds weird! I hope the issue got sorted out soon! Our internet connection is a bit dodgy too these days...*sigh* The photos of you all playing with your toys are so cute...*grins*

Hope you have a great week ahead!


Fred said...

Neat toys! Meanwhile, I hear that the cable company people are problematic. I'm not for sure because we don't have cable, living in the poor house and all. Good luck!

The OP Pack said...

Those cable people can really be pretty stupid - they told our Mom all the wrong things to do to hook up the new TV to all the DVD, VCR, etc.

We have that duck and it too has been de-squeaked - BOL.

Hope the unemployment situation improves quickly. Tough times.

Woos, the OP Pack

Lilacs were one of my grandpa's favorite flowers, Kaos, and I like them, too. We've had lots of rain here and our flowers are just starting to pop up.

I'm glad your mom is feeling less stressed since the unemployment checks started coming.


Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Kaos,
Internet or computer problems are the worst cos they make you feel so lost and helpless (that's what our mom says)...
I hate thunder/ lightning too and Hershey goes crazy when there is thunder. She'll dash around the house 'looking' for the source of the noise.. Just the other day, she ran into the balcony's sliding glass doors in her excitement.. luckily she did not injure herself.. silly pup!).

Peanut said...

Oh we are glad your internet is fixed. Sorry it has been so windy there. I am sure you will never be as crazy as your mom


Moco said...

My tomato plants smile at me all the time.
Stay out of the wind. We saw the Wizard of Oz and know what happens.
