In the Dark

Well, I feel like I have had a limb chopped off.

Yes, I freaked out when I realized Saturday that my Internet was not working, even though the cable was. OH DEAR LORD. No Internet!!

Not only could I not work (which I had put off on Friday with the thoughts that I would simply catch up over the weekend), but I also could check email, update my calendar of events, OR BLOG. OH DEAR LORD.

Right now I am hacking off someone else's Internet in the apartment building. (Can that get me in trouble? Not sure..) Anyways, the connection is so weak, and keeps disconnecting, so it is taking forever to do some quick work and write this post to let you guys know I had not died.

So, tomorrow I will be running out to the company that rents our corporate apartment out, then hopefully getting a new modem from them. But not, then getting whatever info I need to take to Comcast so I can THEN get a new modem. Then play date, then lunch, laundry, naps for the kids, time for me to work (crossed fingers-that's if I get the new modem, cleaning the sticky stuff off the floor (I have no idea what the stuff is. Just a fact of life when a toddler is around, everything is sticky) then taking the kids to the park so the get worn out, go to the store, cooking dinner, twiddling my thumbs during the time I would have been on the computer, reading to the kids, and getting everyone alive through the day (mostly me, because I am already going through computer withdraw, and it is not pretty, my friends).

Even while living in the dark ages of no Internet, my days are full and fun. I just have no idea what is going on in the world or how to dress for the day,so I have to pack even more in the diaper bag.

Oh Internet, how I miss thee, and it has only been 2 days. Sigh.

That would kill me. Seriously.

On the topic of stealing other people's internet...I did that the entire time I lived in my apartment for college and grad school. My reasoning is that if people aren't smart enough to make a secure connection...I have no trouble taking advantage of it. Survival of the fittest, my friend :)

I just had the same thing happen! All of a sudden on Friday night, we had no internet, but we did have cable. DH called the company and they sent someone out Saturday afternoon. It was only about 16 hours, but I thought I was going to DIE!! LOL You don't realize how much you rely on something until you don't have it!
