Hello! My Name Is Kim And I'm Addicted To Cable

There. I said it. It is out in the open now.

An addiction that only came to light eight days ago when my cable went out.


And just so you realize what all we have not had for EIGHT days - please let me explain.

1. DVR
2. Phone
3. TV - other than the basic channels with a fuzzy, snowy-like screen.

And all of this happens when I am having one of my best life experiences - the wedding of the century - Dave and Laura.

It's all better now, though. We finally got every thing fixed this morning. It seems that the problem was something about a cable... yadda yadda yadda... blah blah blah. The cable guy may or may not have had to wake me up after he finished talking to me.

Regardless, Time Warner has graciously offered to compensate us for our trouble. Especially after I broke their automated answering service by YELLING my "reason for calling" and my phone number in to the phone after having to call 87 times. The answering computer just kept saying " I think you are saying that you need to speak to someone".

He is pretty smart. That computer.

I can't tell you enough how hard it is for a person (me) to have so many stories to tell just stuck in their head. I mean.. I've tried everything to relieve the pressure on my brain. I've whispered in to a paper bag. I've sat outside at our bird feeder and showed the birds pictures from the wedding. I've written stories on the shower walls with my bathtub crayons.

Nothing has worked.

But now - my computer is FINALLY up and running again. And I've chosen to waste your time about how I haven't been able to write - instead of telling you about last week.

Sometimes I feel the need to explain myself. It makes me feel less crazy.

But until I get my bizarre ( I may have to "steal" some pics from other people) photos downloaded. And my outline/action plan together on what stories I'm going to tell.... Please know that I had the MOST AMAZING TIME in the world.

Like totally awesome! And everything I dreamed it would be.

And I couldn't be happier for my baby brother and my new sister. Not to mention the MANY incredible NEW people that I have become friends with ( I promise I haven't paid anyone) and the MANY old friends that I was able to catch up with. And the MANY family members that I was so happy to see - even though our time together seemed to last for mere seconds.

It was a whirlwind of a week. And was over in a matter of seconds. But left me with a smile as big as the Cheshire Cat.

And a heart as full as the belly of a competitive hot dog eater.

And on that note.... I've got to go make some hot dogs for dinner. And we may or may not be competitively eating tonight. Except for I just remembered that our cable is back on... and we've got a TON of catching up to do.

Coming Soon: my vacation. the cookout. and THE WEDDING.
