...okay, I'm the one who doesn't blog when I don't want to blog, so yeah, it's my fault, but it's not my fault. Or something.
The big, immediate problem has been my internet connection. The network went haywire a couple weeks ago, and I hadn't been getting any bandwidth, and therefore nothing else; no blogging, no e-mail, no nothin'. I think I stayed sane 'cause I could hit Twitter from my Blackberry, but even then, I was starting to twitch there toward the end.
Ultimately, I think it's a twofold problem. It's my network (network meaning it has its own wifi receiver in it and talks to the network by itself without a computer attached to it) printer sucking the bandwidth. I finally unplugged the damn thing for other reasons, and wow! suddenly, full bandwidth again! I think what put the printer in super-suck overdrive was the Goob's school computer; it's having some software licensing problems that I think are making the entire network wonky.
So, at the least, with the problem(s) identified, we can avoid them or fix them long enough for me to connect to the 'tubes to check my mail and remain sane.
Problem two? More fucking with my medication. This time it's the FDA's fault. Last year they halted production on my main daily painkiller. Which is total bullshit. They're claiming it's unsafe. It's been in use since the 1950s, and it's suddenly unsafe?!?! Okay, sure, put some warnings on it, and leave me to choose to take the risk myself, but pulling it off the shelf everywhere, for everyone? Total bullshit.
Then, to make it worse, I started physical therapy a couple weeks ago. In case you've never done it, I strongly recommend AGAINST messing with pain medication while doing PT. If anything, you should take more. There's a lot of blah blah about needing to feel my pain so I don't injure myself further, but it sucks oozing rat ass.
Lots of running back and forth to Pigsbird (in heavy snow, at early hours, har), lots of laying on the floor waving my arms around, lots of feeling like shit and cussing and swearing. Though you guys think the cussing and swearing is funny so I don't know why I let the rest stop me.
So, all that said. I wanted to start blogging more anyway. And as my pain medication has worn off, I've actually felt much better in terms of concentration and clarity of thought (I just hurt - ha). Now I've got the bandwidth to do it again. Which leaves one question.
What do you guys want to read about?
(Oh- knitting another pair of socks, and a buncha gauge swatches. Pics soon.)
