Well, today I finally figured out what was going on with the new Internet provider. I called them up again and got someone sensible on the line and she explained what was happening. It seems they have 3 systems and in one of their systems I showed up as having my application canceled and that was why the installation packet was not showing up, which consists of a new modem and a connection for the telephone. All will be resolved, it will just be a little bit later than I had planned.
In the mail today came the official end of services letter from my old provider stating that their services may not end exactly on the date we had agreed on, so I'm thinking maybe I will have their connection a few days longer, which would be good. So keep your fingers crossed on that one.
Slowly by little, things are starting to make sense and I have to tell you that this whole thing has bothered me to no end, as I don't do well with changes in my environment and especially not with changes that don't go smoothly. All along I knew something was not right and I was worried sick about it. I think I was having a little nervous breakdown about it. I said as much to my SPN today and she agreed with me. I am not going to do anything remotely like this again for a long time. Everything that can stay put, is staying put.
As you can see, I have a new keyboard brought to me by the magnificent Exfactor himself, who is now in the arms of his Paramount getting ready to ring in the New Year. Well, let them, I don't wish them anything good. I am not that kind.
The Exfactor had brought the Überhund an aluminum dish of wet food and the Überhund liked it very much. This was after I had tried to feed him his chunky, meaty food this morning, which he did not want for whatever reason. I tried to hand feed him, but he would have none of it. So, I gave him the wet food and he ate it in 2 minutes flat. After that, there was not a peep out of him for the rest of the day, so I went to the store and bought more of it.
I gave him another dish of it tonight and he loved it and again, he is very satisfied and has not begged for a treat yet. I don't know if this is the solution, but I am willing to give it a try. Anything to get him to eat and be satisfied and full.
I also took him to the vet tonight and one eye is completely better and the other eye is nearly so, but may never become completely better again. Still, we are going to continue treating it. So I have another tube of eye gel to apply twice a day.
I am now going to watch TV after I have put on my pajamas and my bathrobe and hopefully good things will be on tonight. After all, it is New Year's Eve and something good has to be on TV.
I am wishing you all the best for 2009 and I hope all your wishes for the new year come true.
