It's STILL Missing

UPDATE: Houseblogs.net IS BACK! I am ecstatic. I was starting to go through withdrawal. (Yes, I could have clicked on various links from MY OWN SITE, and did last night for a bit, but it's just not the same. Clearly, I'm addicted.) I think it's safe to guess what I'll be doing later tonight -- catching up on blogs!!! But first ... Ike's rain has been scooting north of us all day so I managed to mow the WHOLE yard. I hadn't done the back in WEEKS! It was horrible. So now I'm off to the dump to get rid of the clippings.
It's true: You really don't know what you've got until it's gone. Sadly, I think a lot of Texans are realizing that today. I've been watching coverage of Hurricane Ike and it just makes me heartsick.

I b*tch an awful lot about This D*mn House and it frustrates me beyond belief sometimes, but it's mine. It's my lot in life. I should be very grateful, especially after seeing homes swept out into the ocean.

But the other "good thing" that is still gone is Houseblogs.net. Where the hell is it? I guess I didn't realize how much I rely on its feed to keep up with all of my fellow housebloggers, and as a means for them to keep up with me. It's been about 24 hours now and the site is still coming up dead. Has enough time passed then that I can officially report it missing?

Hopefully, by the time I get back home later it will have safely rematerialized.

Right now though I need to finish getting dressed. In addition to my routine hardware and household errands this morning, the day holds a special treat. A very special treat. But I'll tell you all about it later.

WHAT IS THE SPECIAL TREAT?!?! Are you coming here with Lawrence and CD to get some things done around this house? :)

I feel your houseblogs.net withdrawal pains, too. I was wondering if their web host was in Texas, but it's in Chicago. It would appear the web host made a recent server change...and not for the better :-(

I have my fingers crossed for those in Ike's path. I can't imagine a storm of that magnitude washing everything I hold dear to my heart away! Thinking Lovely Thoughts...

Houseblogs.net is back! *dances about merrily* Apparently a "major server problem". Um, yeah ;-)

V -- The special treat was getting to meet a cyberbuddy IN PERSON!!! (topic of a soon to be written post)

Gene -- YAY! We can both get our fixes now. :-)

VeggieMom -- Yeah, I feel SO incredibly bad for the folks in Texas. Some of the footage I saw earlier was just horrible. Makes me want to hug my house.
