Can you hold please? Actually, NO, I can't!

I planned on writing earlier, but I promised Jake I would help him hook up his desktop computer to our wireless router by using a USB adaptor. All of this is a foreign language for me. I just called it what it says on the packaging. Who made up these names? And what does it all mean? My neck has a bend in it from holding the phone with one ear and typing cryptic code words into the computer, all the while trying to decipher what the guy on the other end is saying to me because he is in India.

I'm on hold again... I'm giving this whole process 5 more minutes, then we're packing all the stuff up and bringing it back to Costco. They have a great return policy! And, I have no more patience. That is a winning combination.

Rick is feeling much better today now that he has his fanny pack of chemo off. I have an appointment tomorrow morning at the University of Washington Medical Center. I'm sure they'll find nothing unusual, but my family will all feel better once we know that for sure. My appointment is with an ear, nose and throat specialist. Apparently, he's suppose to be really good. I think tomorrow will just be a consultation. Pam has her last radiation treatment (#30) tomorrow morning so we are riding to Seattle together. Yahoo for her. The radiologist told me on Monday that she is the toughest broad he's ever met. I could have told him that! Hopefully our traffic will be better than it was on Sunday.

I really don't have anything witty or funny to tell you tonight. I'm sure you're relieved by that, but I do my best to keep the entertainment lively :)

Love you more than all the minutes I was on hold tonight,
