My connection to the Internet has been tenuous and intermittent over the past few weeks. This weekend I’ve only been able to connect twice, including now. My ISP initially told me it was their problem, something about the line coming into the house. A service dude even showed up the next day with a ladder.
But, after being offline for most of this weekend, when I phoned them today they decided it was the modem. They’re sending me a new one, but it won’t be here for “two to five days”.
So… I’ve got a few posts ready to go, I just need stable access to the Internet to finish them. I guess the most important thing right now is my blood sugar has been places it hasn’t been since this diabetes thing got a hold of me.
My morning numbers are averaging 9.0 mmol/L (metric, I don’t know the American translation), with a few dips into the 7’s and even one 4.3. They generally rise though the day, so at bedtime I’m back up to the mid-teen’s. But even that’s a massive improvement over the 20-30 it used to be.
The other big, and weird, news is… after sixty years of marriage, my grandparents are separating. They’ve been living in a suite in a retirement home for the past ten years, and as of Tuesday they’ll have their own rooms.
My grandmother blames it on years of tolerating each other, and hitting a wall. My grandfather blames years of “emotional blackmail”. I think they’re both right.
Anyway. I’ve been lucky over the past twenty minutes to have a connection, hopefully I’ll be back full time in a few days.
…it’s a good thing I still have the PlayStation, otherwise I’d have to read a book or something.
