Meltdown

So for two days I have been trying to figure out how to get my freakin' wireless signal back. My nightly ritual (when hubby is in debtors prison) is to lounge on the couch watching my tv shows while surfing the Internet and reading blogs. Last night when I turned on the laptop I had no signal. Not a weak signal, but NO signal. wtf? Ok, fine whatev. It will come back later. Not last night it didn't. So tonight expecting it to be miraculously fixed I turned on the computer. nothing. wtf? I pulled out my router box with all the directions/passwords etc. and started troubleshooting. (thank goodness we have a desktop too - and thank goodness that never quit working). Anyways, about an hour and a couple of meltdowns later I finally figured out what the problem was. There is a stupid hidden switch that I somehow flipped and it turned of the wireless capability. Damn you sony. Why would you hide something so significant to the operation of my laptop. Was that really necessary? So this week is going fabutasitc. Eating well - check. Working out - check. I also got clearance from my PT to start that Pfitz 'returning from injury' 7week program. Monday: Sweet swim workout (2200m) Push-up challenge Tuesday: Walk 10, Run 5, Walk 5, Run 5 - (10min running total) Pilates workout that killed my arms last week. I'm going to try to do it every week - it's too good not to. Wednesday: laxidazical swim workout - warm up, 2x400, 2x200,cool down (~1200m) Push-up challenge

sorry for the lack of comments lately, I'm so swamped with the house stuff...as I now know you can understand. We're doing some of the stuff ourselves (ripping up carpeting, taking wallpaper down, demo the kitchen, etc) but have hired contractors as well. My dad is one of those guys that knows how to do anything so he has been a huge help. I hope it all gets done by April...that's when we're scheduled to move in!! How are your renovations going?

Hey there - DPS = Distance Per Stroke, long strong strokes. In our class it's 17 or less per 25 yards. I'm in the 15-16 range - got to glide!!!

Ugh, that's happened w/ my internet before too. It's the worst! Glad you figured it out!!!! When does your hubby return?!

Kristen said...

It is the worst when the internet stops working. When my husband works nights sometimes that is my favorite thing to do too - watch my tv shows he doesn't like and read blogs!

So exciting you can return to running and great job with the swimming!

Yay for getting healthy again.

I hate when my internet goes down too. We, um, borrow it from the neighbors, so I get extra pissy that I can't do much about it. :o)

Technology and I have a love/hate relationship. When all is working I LOVE it when it's not it's the devil!

Great job on the workouts this week!
