I haven't been on as much as usual; our internet connection was all screwed up--well, the modem/router was malfunctioning, so Comcast had to send a guy out to fix it. It's fixed (finally and for real, this time). Yay!

In other news, it's snowing here. Snowing. In March. In Arkansas. How crazy is that? I can't remember the last time it snowed in March (and it's been two years since it's even really snowed in Central Arkansas).

Also, Mom's (cell) phone stopped working, so we had to go to Alltel. Unfortunately, she couldn't upgrade her phone. Fortunately, I could upgrade mine. So, I got a new phone (this one) and Mom got my old one (this one, only in green)--which there was nothing wrong with. So it all worked out.

Granny Mac + a Meme

It turns out that my Granny Mac didn't have a full stroke; it was a "mini-stroke". Dad has told me that she's saying that she's going to check out of the hospital tomorrow no matter what the doctor says. This worries me quite a bit, as she's nearly 90 (she'll be 90 in May...not that she'd admit to it; my Pa Mac--who died when I was in elementary school--was born in 1920, I believe, and she won't admit to being older than her husband...), lives alone and about an hour and a half away from us. Her neighbors are going to check in on her regularly, but that doesn't stop me from worrying.

We're going to try to convince her to move in with us in the near future. I'm not really excited about the prospect, but I understand why it would be necessary. Either that or try to get her into an assisted living facility (my other grandparents lived in one that was really nice and very close to where we live now). I hope she'll do one or the other.
