THINGS WE DO FOR LOVE.
July 24, 2017 5:35pm CST
For me, mylotting has become a labor of love - or folly depending on how you look at it - and it is certainly not fun as it was up to two months ago. Yes, this all started two months ago when my internet connection started to 'do its own thing'. Initially, it would go off every twenty to thirty minutes - now it goes off every five to twenty minutes. After making a response on a post or comment - I must sit twiddling my thumbs while watching that circle slowly turning round and round for ten to twenty minutes before that response goes through. Some days it is a bit better, but those days are few. Yes the technicians representing the internet company came, but their visit made little difference and the monthly internet bills come right on time. Another visit is scheduled for this week and if the result is the same , then I really must do some serious thinking and planning. I would hate to be forced to relocate to the city because of a wayward internet connection. Do you find yourself going that extra mile or doing the seemingly impossible for something or someone you love?

Absolutely! That's the only way a relationship can thrive. It's not 50/50 like some same. It needs to be 100/100. That way when one partner can't quite produce their part, the other takes up the slack for both, and vice versa.

Yes, I gone the extra mile for others. There are times they have proved not worth it. My Internet connection disconnects more than it should but not as much as yours. I cannot even imagine moving due to Internet connection woes.

@MsBooklover I have a Caribbean doll business offline. I receive a lot of emails and I plan on having an online market for my dolls soon. There is less crime in the country, it is cooler and the air is fresh. I like the city because everything is available there.

@LadyDuck There isn't much crime in the country - unlike the city. Everything is available in the city - unlike the country. Here the beach is five minutes away - and I can see the sea from my veranda - even though I sometimes miss city life, I actually prefer country living now - except for the internet system. So I will try my very best not to have to leave right now. If nothing works, then I will be forced to.

What a shame that you are having so much trouble with your internet. When we were away two years ago, I simply had to give up interacting on Bubblews but this time we can log on through the phone and it's been much better. Hope you get some improvement soon.

I do feel your pain... I heard that my area is going to have a shake up soon re: internet connection and I am not looking forward to that time at all. Yes, there have been times when I have to sacrifice my time for other activities in order to chat with friends from here. A real labor of love OK.
