I had good intentions of writing a couple of blog posts while we were away on holiday that came to nothing. My wifi connection was good enough for most things but wordpress takes a special effort to load for some reason and I decided it just wasn’t worth the frustration.
(I love the way this blog looks but on the best of days I have plenty of frustrations with the site itself and the process of getting photos on here… not all wordpress’s fault perhaps – iPhoto seems to kick in it’s share of complications…)
Anyway, we got home a week ago and once again I planned to share all manner of wonderful things with you here… but wifi got in the way again! My home connection is glitchy (to say the least) so I am brought to the library in search of a signal. That’s cool (yay, libraries rock!) except that I work here, and blogging is not exactly what I want to do before (or after) work most days.
Oh yeah, and then I caught one of the colds that’s been going around. So I’ve been sitting on the couch watching Lark Rise to Candleford (a BBC show) or sleeping for the last 4 days, rejoicing when my iPod loads a webpage and trying not to grind my teeth when my laptop says it’s connected but won’t load a thing. (Oh I exaggerate – it would load a page or two, give me hope, and then it would refuse)
I decided I needed to make a decision – to continue with this digital life and all it’s torments and joys, or give it up. And I decided that the internet not working shows me how useful it is when it is working…
So please forgive this complaining post that I am barely going to reread or edit.
And please forgive me if I throw some fairly random and unrelated posts up here in the coming days or weeks. I’m going to try to get caught up and share some of the things I wanted to show you about our trip and the weeks before and after. Decorated shoes. The dresses I took with me to NZ. A weta. Villas, and baches. Marmaggedon perhaps. Maybe even a quiz where you can test your knowledge and learn a little bit about NZ….
(a little happier now that I see that iPhoto is showing ALL of my events when I go to upload media here – that was part of what was holding me back from posting last month!)
