It's Strange...

how different life can be without internet.

We had cable, both for tv and internet installed a week and a bit ago. On Wednesday, we needed the cable guy to come and flip a switch to switch some things around for us. Apparently, he did something while doing that so our internet was out from Wednesday afternoon until this afternoon when the second cable guy came and did something (he's not even sure what, other than unplugging it and plugging it in again) in order for us to have internet again.

I can make it for a day or so. I did check email at the library on Wednesday and downloaded my email from the church yesterday. But by today, I was starting to feel the pain a little more. I kept thinking of things I wanted to look up, only to realize that I couldn't check them. I do rely on the internet for a lot of things.

On the other hand, I did get a lot accomplished. Once I wasn't able to check email or blogs "just for a few minutes", I wasn't tempted to sit down at the computer and waste time. So that was good. It's a good reminder of how easy it is to let this machine take over my life.

But now I am happy that we have our internet back and that whenever I think of something to look up, I can do it anytime.

Off to check the freezer for something to eat for supper....

Internet withdrawals. I experience the same thing when it happens to me!
