Finally, Intermission is Over!!

I am soooo happy to be here. For the last few days I have unexpectedly been without internet access or a cell phone. This wasn’t some social experiment gone too far, it was a bad mix of some mundane circumstances. Lightning hit the house, knocking out internet. We’re getting it fixed tomorrow, and in the meantime I"m using Mike’s laptop with a weird cell phone like card thing. I don’t understand it, but I don’t NEED to understand it either. Who cares? It works! And my cell phone died and the charger was in the car being ‘worked on.’ This is  about as close to ‘roughing it’ as I get.

It had a lovely effect on my laundry and closet though, as both are a lot more caught up than they would be otherwise. (Less than lovely effect on my mood. )

I have email to check! Sparkpoints to accrue! WOO HOO!

I couldn’t imagine having no internet. It is my life line. Although I could see how other things might get done with no ability to blog.

Now there’s just no need for roughing it like that. Just no need. But at least you still had air conditioning and power – otherwise, clearly, you would have had to move.

Yay! You’re back! Life without internet stinks, doesn’t it? I can’t imagine how we got along without it, and it wasn’t all that long ago!

Welcome back….and glad you survived the lightning strike! Lightning struck our home several years ago…..while we were on vacation. When we came home, we discovered our TV sets had been fried….our freezer in the basement, full of frozen goods, was now completely thawed and rotting…AND the water heater had sprung a leak. The first clue was stepping onto the carpet of our lower level and it was squishy! The water heater had leaked for the complete two weeks we were gone! ARGH!

been there! we moved on the 31st and I lost my internet service on the 30th…it took over a week to get it at our new place! I used ben’s laptop that has one of those satellite cards (i guess like what you’re using?), but where we are we don’t have good cell service so we didn’t have a good connection on that! thought i was going to lose my mind!

Absence made the heart grow fonder… or at least the need to blog gets a lot more obvious.

Glad you’re back and running!

That roughing it sounds awful and liberating all at once!

And, say…how is the Sparkspoints weight loss adventure going? Did I miss it?

You gotta love it when you’re plugged back in. Wow, now I sound like chipher in The Matrix and I’m not really that big of a Matrix fan. Oh, now I’m scaring me….

I’m afraid I agree with you. All those techie problems is definitely what I call roughing it. Glad you’re back in business.
