The bridal shower was nice and I got to meet a few more of the bride's relatives. There were enough people that I already knew that I also didn't need to feel awkward or anything. I even ended up chatting with one of the other women and having some good giggles! The bride wasn't embarassed TOO badly and there were lots of laughs (and food) had by all! Everyone seemed quite content with the way it turned out.
The drive there and back was also quite nice as I was able to hitch a ride with the bride and some mutual friends. It made for some great conversation, funny stories and interesting rants! I must say, I actually found it not only fun and stimulating, but also enlightening! I'm also glad that I was able to get a ride with them, otherwise, I'm not sure how I would have gotten to the shower! (Thanks ladies!!)
Then... as I got closer to home... I could feel the urge to overcome and conquer the router problem! I started sometime around ten o'clock and now, at eleven, it has been resolved. My problem, apparently, was that I followed the directions on the router (which, in fairness, I was warned by Eumelos not to do) and ran the software CD before doing anything else. After trying a few different things I reset everything and restored my computer to the day before I set up the router, plugged it in without running the CD and VOILA, it's working beautifully! Go figure!! That's what you get for following the instructions I guess!!!
