Celebrate the Small Things

OK, so it's been a really long time since I posted! Sorry to anyone who commented, and sorry that I haven't been making the rounds lately. Our internet stopped working, and we couldn't get it fixed for nine days (it was awful). We finally got it working last Sunday, but then I was away all week visiting my boyfriend and sister since I was off work. I'm back now, so I'll try to catch up on all of your latest blog posts.



So, finally, here are my celebrations from the last two weeks:

- The internet is working! Seriously, I have really missed blogging. I love reading all of your blog posts.

- I got a new graphics card! Unfortunately, I couldn't set it up for five days since I needed the internet for the drivers. My mum also got a new phone that we couldn't set up because we needed the internet for it, too. It really was quite funny.

- I watched The Book Thief last week, and I really enjoyed it. I've had the book on my Kindle for a while, so I can't wait to read it.

- I had an awesome week off work, and spent a lot of time with my boyfriend and my sister. I don't get to see them much since I moved away, so it really was lovely seeing them.

- My sister and I had a Lord of the Rings marathon, and it was awesome! Also, neither of us fell asleep even though we were up watching it until about 2 in the morning. I'll definitely be doing that again.

  3. I've always wanted to do a LOTR marathon.
    Sorry about the Internet issues. Sucks when you need it just to install a program and it's down.

  6. LOTR marathons are fun. I haven't read the book or seen the movie for The Book Thief but both are things I want to do. :)

  9. Glad to see you back :) my local theater played all three Lord of the Rings movies back to back to back two winters ago. I had never seen them so I watched all 3 in the theater that day. The extended versions. over 10 hours. It was awesome. But I overdosed on popcorn.

  10. I have had a few friends who had their internet fail in the storms. . . . We had some problems but things are sort of back to normal although a bit slow at times. it has been rather hot though so I am hoping it will get cooler soon.

    Glad to see you back in cyberspace Mr Laura

  11. The Book Thief is a brilliant book - I haven't watched the film in case it's not as good. Glad your internet's back - everything I do is on line now, I'm not sure how I would cope!

  12. We've been lucky with not losing power during the powerful storms we've had lately. My daughter and I have had LoTR marathons before.

  13. Welcome back! Isn't it awful how we've come to rely on the internet! I can think of few things worse than a LOTR marathon. I just don't get it - and I'd definitely fall asleep.

  14. Nine days without the Internet sounds like my own personal hell. Welcome back! And hurray for a LOTR marathon, I think I need one of those soon myself.

  15. Hi, Laura,

    Happy to hear of the return of your internet. I know what that's like and it's AWEFUL!!!!

    I'm sure you're all set up with your graphics card and having a blast! Enjoy!

  16. Well done on making it through the LotR marathon! It's a hard slog (and you get more than a little sleep deprived as a result) but it's worth it :)
