Living in the country has its perks and a few detractors.
Such as having no phone service for 10 days.
No phone. No internet.
A couple years ago our neighbors dug up and severed our phone line with a backhoe. Now whenever it rains significant amounts, as it has for the past week, we loose the ability to use our phone.
When we try to use the phone we get a loud buzzing and crackling which makes you temporarily loose all your hearing abilities.
We called the phone company each work day for 7 days. Each time we got the same song and dance…it would be fixed within 24 hours.
Yesterday, 10 days into this fiasco, the phone repairman finally came. We personally know the guy and he said it was the first time he had gotten any order for fixing our line.
After the phone was fixed I tried to get on the internet, but each time I got a pop-up telling me my access was denied.
SIGH! Oh well.
Today I finally got it all straightened around.
I’m up and running.
This unintentional break once again showed me what a time hog the internet can be. The first few days I was really antsy about not having the internet, but as time progressed I began to realize how much I was accomplishing with my computer turned off.
I need balance in this area of my life.
Less computer time and more living is what is the order of the day. Basic uninterrupted daily living.
Simplicity at its finest.
