Wirelessless


I had the uncomfortable misfortune to be without wireless connectivity this week for a couple of days.  It was awful.  I feel the need to blog about it in great detail so no one is left with the mistaken impression that it was like “a breath of fresh air” or that we are better people because of it.  I found myself itchy and tense, more so than my usual psoriasis and chronic stress would account for.

A side benefit to our technology problem is that the office is finally cleaned out.  Jeff took it all to Goodwill, which said no to half of the attempted donations.  Electronics, exercise equipment, keyboard stand…  They aren’t interested in our garbage any more than we are.  Freecycle is an option, but the last time I tried that we had gobs of unclaimed stuff on our porch.  All of the follow-up  just takes time away from building a better relationship with my laptop and internet “connections”. 

I digress.  Until the new router arrives on Wednesday, we can at least connect to the ethernet port on our cable modem, which is now in working order.  I was thisclose to driving to Panera and sitting in the parking lot to check e-mail.  N would have loved the opportunity to go in and buy something so we’d be “real” customers versus wireless thieves.

All is right with the world again, and will continue to improve midweek.  My blogging challenge should not be affected.  Sorry!  You’re stuck with me.

    Oh man, we were without an Internet connection for almost an entire week a couple of months ago and I almost went crazy. Partly because of the mental argument I kept having with myself about being so dependent on it, this isn’t good, go out and life life, woman, yadda yadda yadda. Both boys were “itchy and tense” and worst was hubbo. Personally, I felt like an entire world had been cut off from me, like a tunnel had collapsed and I couldn’t get through to my beloved alternate universe. I so freakin’ love the Internet.
