Internet woes in Ireland (or day 4)

I know I promised you guys pics. I even bought an outrageously expensive flash drive for the occasion. (okay so everything over here is ridiculously expensive. I don’t know how people make a living here with paying the huge income tax percentages and the prices of EVERYTHING.) But I digress (what else is new) But the fact of the matter is, my internet sucks ass here. I haven’t had this much frustration since the days of dial up and hell, at least it WORKED back then. It was slow as hell but it stayed on. Not so much with this stuff *sob*

It takes me forever to get on and once I do manage to have the stars align just right and get a connection, it then drops randomly and so you have to keep trying to get to where you’re going on keep trying to check email until you hit those few seconds where it works with no interruption, type like hell and then wait again while it blips off to God knows where.

So uhm while I have pictures on my laptop now, the chances of me getting them posted? Let’s just say I’d probably win the lottery before that happens. So the pics will have to wait until I get back to the land of high speed internet.

As for day 4? I worked all day today. The fog was super thick and it was chilly. Hubby and the kids went to play golf again and I stayed behind to curl up under a blanket and try to finish this book. (I’m almost there and won’t go to bed tonight until I finish. Or rather, I’m already IN bed, but I won’t go to sleep until this book is done, done, done.

Tomorrow the kids are going horseback riding in the morning and hubby and I are going to do some shopping. I think tomorrow afternoon if the weather prediction was accurate, we’ll take a boating trip :)

So there’s the update such as it is. I’m hoping this will post in this lifetime and I’m getting back to work on the writing. I left my characters all in turmoil and they’re probably pissed at me because I haven’t gotten back to them to solve all their woes.

    So, you’re finishing Cole and Ren’s story right? *Sigh*
    Have to remind myself to be patient, it’ll be worth the wait.

    Have fun tomorrow!

    I know this must be miserable for you, the terrible internet connection, but I laughed and laughed when I read this part: “type like hell and then wait again while it blips off to God knows where.” ;) Thanks. I needed that…

    Sometimes we forget how very lucky and fortunate we are her in the good ‘ol USA!

    Love your books!

    Wow, we never realize how good things are until going to another country. So, so, sorry you are running into so many obstacles. Good luck tonight on getting finished.

    Thanks for updating us on your trip, hope you have an awesome day tomorrow shopping and on your boat trip :)

      Michele, I wouldn’t use one experience as proof one country is better than another! You can have equally bad experiences in the United States!
