Okay, I realize crying may be a bit of an overreaction. I'm just so frustrated. And my frustration is aggravated by my severe lack of sleep. Anyway, the frustration that sent me to the verge of tears is my email. Or lack thereof. *sigh*
We got our internet service through our phone company. Yep, we still had a landline (I don't even own a cell phone). And my email account was through them. When we called to have our phone/internet service terminated because we were moving out of the house, they assured me they would keep my email account intact through the period we were "homeless" since we would be using them again when we got to a new house. But well, that seems to have been a lie. Or more likely a mistake, I suppose. My email account is gone. My email account that I've had for nearly a decade. The email account through which I did everything.
I'm hoping that I can get it restored, but in the meantime, let me apologize profusely if you emailed me recently. :( I do have a gmail account that I opened for a very specific purpose a couple years ago, but only used it for about a month for that project. Hadn't checked it since then and when I went to it this morning, I found a bazillion blog comment notifications in the inbox. *sigh* Hopefully I can figure out a way to delete en masse...I started doing it one by one, but realized that's going to take hours. Anyway, should you need to email me, for the time being, at least, please use:
aldobakerlucky (at) gmail (dot) com
Thanks, and let me apologize again if it appears I'm ignoring an email from you. I promise you, I'm not!!!
Also on the frustration front is the house we're buying. Hopefully buying. The septic system inspection was done. There was a supposedly minor problem, which the homeowners were going to take care of, and then the county was going to come in and inspect it. Well, apparently when the county inspected it, they found major problems. From what we heard from our real estate agent, the home owners decided to just have the septic system replaced without even trying to renegotiate our deal. So that is totally awesome news. But we're afraid it very well may set back closing and leave us paying for our very expensive hotel room for even longer. :( And you know, I'm really not sure what it is that all these septic systems have against us. :P
Okay, enough complaining. Seriously. Life is good.
