I’ve spent the last several days over at the chateau while Queen Mum & Da were gone for one of their bowling tournaments.

They hadn’t been gone 30 minutes when there was a power spike that knocked out the Internet connection on their computer. I know it’s just a matter of resetting the wireless connection but I don’t know how to do that. So I there I sat in an Internet blackout.

What was I going to do? I figured I’d manage. After all, I had unlimited access to their pool and hot tub. I would be living the resort lifestyle for the next three days! Who needed to play on the computer with all that there was to do at the chateau?

I was fine the first night.

I was quite nearly a basket case the second.

Hubby came by after his workshop and had his blackberry with him. I started fiddling with the fool thing trying to get to the Internet page. My hands were trembling so badly and my head spinning so quickly I couldn’t remember what he’d told me to do to find the page. Almost broke the little gadget in the process … but don’t tell him that.

Day three was terrible. I woke up with a headache because I couldn’t sleep. My fingers were twitching. I had to get an Internet fix! I tried every which way from Sunday to figure out how to reset the wireless connection on my parents’ computer. I couldn’t do it.

I drove home.


I am pathetic.
