Long holiday weekend.

Well, we spent Labor Day weekend up in Vermont with my husband's mother. She is a wonderful woman, an inspiration to everyone who knows her. I think I love her because she was born the same year as my mother, and since my mother died when I was 6 yrs old and she was 31 yrs old, I have gotten older and I have come to miss her daily. But, having my husband's mother has helped me a lot.

When we were driving on the back roads, to avoid the busy, traffic filled highway, we got a phone call from the head of a political party, who wanted to talk to both of us about an issue that was going on. Because we couldn't always get good reception with our cell phone, we couldn't really talk, however we kind of got the message across. Since I talk too softly (can you imagine that!), I never get to talk on the cell phone that is attached to our stereo in the car. Yep that's right, when a call comes in to my husband's cell phone he answers it and then he can talk while driving without holding ANYTHING! Actually it makes the car our cell phone! So, because of driving the back roads, our cell phone couldn't connect to regular calls via the cell phone!

So, we spent the entire weekend without a computer or even much of a cell phone! Kinda nice, but kinda hard, I have so much to do, and so little time to do it in. Isn't that what most people say in this day of ages, don't we all have too much work to do and too little time to do it in? I can't remember what it was like before computers, can you?
