Miss me?

Well, I had planned on doing a Word-filled Wednesday and another post last night! Yeah, that worked out real well! LOL! Jack does his computer stuff in the afternoon and the computer and phones went out yesterday afternoon. For the second time in a month, construction workers somewhere had cut a phone cable. This time it wasn't out as long as the first time. But we were busy so neither of us checked to make sure the internet was okay. Normally I am on after supper but I got busy and it was after ten p.m. before I tried to get on. No internet! Oh no, what's a girl to do? LOL! I went through the whole procedure of what we are supposed to do in these situations and no luck. Time to call the phone company for help. No luck again! He told me their server and our modem were not communicating for some reason. I guess they had a fight and were not on speaking terms! LOL! Anyway, he wrote up a repair ticket and I was stuck with internet withdrawal. Normally no internet really doesn't bug me unless I have something that needs to be done. So it did bug me for a bit and then I settled down cross stitching and was fine. We left to get groceries at 8:30 this morning and by the time we got home a little after ten the internet had been repaired. That is one thing good I will say for our phone company, they get repairs done fast! With AT&T it always took forever and one time we had to file a complaint to even get the repair done. Not so with this company! So I will shoot for a post with pictures for tomorrow. I may be all day today just trying to catch up with blogs and e mails!

Hi Michelle,
I think many of us can relate to this. I depend on the internet for so much more than blogging (banking, email, IM, shopping, research, etc, etc)
Hard to remember how we functioned without it!~
