Please Stand By

This is how Mexico works. Truly. Everything.

Last week Chino went to get our internet contract switched from the old house to the new house. They said within 5 days someone would show up at our house and hook us up.

5 days came and went so Chino went back to see what was up. It turns out they had the wrong address. When he gave them the correct one they said that the previous renter of our house didn't pay off his bill and that if we wanted OUR internet at that address we would have to pay it. (Our house is new so it didn't make much sense but whatever, it's Mexico) Chino had a hissy fit and they said they would have the supervisor call him in two days.

Two days came and no phone call so he went back, found the supervisor and had a talk. It turns out they had put in a SECOND wrong address and there was no contract we had to pay off and that for our trouble they would send out someone the next day.

Right. It's the next day! And I'm stateside at a doctor appointment but they didn't show this morning anyway.

Lordy. The funny part? I'm so used to this after living here a for a year that it doesn't even piss me off anymore. In fact Chino and I usually make bets on how long it will take to actually get things done. My bet was no less than 3 weeks on this one :P

SO! I haven't gone into labor just yet, I'm just waiting to get back online.

Do they have wi-fi in hospitals these days? It seems like they'd have to right? I'd like to blog from the hospital when I go into labor, wouldn't that be cool?

Anyhoo, gotta run and get checked out - see yall soon! :)

I don't know about the hospitals in Texax, but the ones here in Colorado have Wi-Fi . . . the laptop was at the top of my list of things to bring to the hospital - after blowing out my vagina for the 3rd (4th) time, there was no way in hell I wasn't going to take full advantage of having some time to myself! (Well, you know . . . between nursing, changing diapers, and having nurses check on things "down there".)

I think I can state with a fair amount of certainty that you live-blogging during labor will produce a post funnier than anything else I have read in a very long time.

(Oh yeah . . . the crotch gazing doesn't end after the baby comes out. The nurses will devote a fair amount of attention to your deflated gut, your swollen girly bits, and the contents of your matress-sized maxi-pad. Just a warning. And I don't know how long the drive back across the border is, but there is no shame in sporting an adult diaper to prevent any leakage. Ahem.)

Blogging during labor????? I doubt it, but if you do I will bow to you as the supreme master!

Sunshine said...

Blogging during labor....ummmm..okok...yes...i think it will go down in history as truely amazing! But you are amazing any ways. Hope everything went well today. You keep on rocking it mama!

Larry Prater said...

I hope you get your internet connection soon, and that little Daisy is born soon. I also hope you have wi-fi at your hospital so you can blog from there. I wish Chino could be with you there in the hospital.

Suki said...

Oh phew, you're ok!

Mexico sounds like West Bengal, lol. Whenever there's one form to submit, it's "Oh, three times and I suppose we'll manage to submit it!" WTF.

Remember how Sparx blogged during labor? But then again she had a home labor so that was something else altogether. I sure hope you have WiFi at the hospital. Otherwise... you could keep typing and get someone else to put it up, maybe? Give it to them on a USB stick and get them to guest post via "add authors"?

Would love to know you're ok, and would equally love to hear what you have to say about your labor.

Take care!!

So it's pretty much like living in SovCro, except warmer. I'm seriously considering moving...

jenny said...

I was wondering where you went!

It's like that here in the mountains sometimes, too. I am having a hell of a time getting people to come out here and fix my videophone!!

Yeah, FandF is right, they check your vagina quite often and push down on your belly to make sure the uterus is contracting back down to size and it's still tender and it hurts when they do that! bitches! You also have to pee and poop in the toilet and call the nurse in to check it before you flush. They want to make sure your bodily functions are working.

Lauren said...

I'm with Fishsticks on this one - adult diapers, or at least a Poise pad.. There's so much about post-delivery I knew NOTHING about, and finding out all by myself was no fun either (I delivered without babydaddy, and no one stayed with me in the hospital. So many times I had to pull the "Nurse" chord from the bathroom because I was sitting on the pot in tears because I had left a pee-trail from the bassinet to the bathroom and was out of mattress-sized pads and no one bothered to check the pee-hat the LAST time I had gone to the bathroom, etc). Poise pads for the first week or two after delivery will be your best friend...

looks like you got yourself a spammer, Gringa!

I wish they had had wi fi when I was in labor. I'd have used it to tell the world how wonderful the epidural is.

~ellen~ said...

Hi, just commenting to say I miss hearing from you, and hope things are going good for you :)

La Familia Garcia said...

That is tooo funny about blogging while in labor...actually it would help to distract you and make the time go faster maybe though. At our hospital we have wi-fi and you can sign on as a guest. I don't understand the whole thing of you have to pay the balance of the previous renters..that's so messed up...but part of how it is.

I thought about you the other day when my daughter asked me what a phone jack was!!! Sign of the times...haha

hope your doing well.
bendiciones!

Sparx said...

Ack! Well you're patience is astounding.

So tell me, you are NOT driving yourself across the border to hospital when you're in labour. Are you? Tell me, please... my heart is stopping just thinking about it!!

jeremy said...

you have a kid yet, hor?

Carmen said...

It's been a week and a half chica!!!! Hope all is ok!
