I do. When it works. When it doesn't, you realize how much you have come to rely upon it and how much of a pain it is when you can't use it. *sigh* As I told someone today, "my Internet is sick". For some reason my DSL modem decided to die last night. It took an hour's worth of a tech support phone call to a lovely young man from India (he was probably IN India) to discover the problem though. Then another 1/2 hour phone call this morning to arrange for a new modem to be sent to the house. (very good service from Verizon online btw -- I like to give credit when companies actually have GOOD service!) They said two business days -- if they count today as one of them, then I will be up and running again before the weekend. Anyone but me think that is awfully optimistic? Yep -- so it will probably be Monday before I can get back online from home. Argghhhh!
So, in the meantime, I am on campus using one of the school computers today but that is not an option for most of the weekend. Hmmn...I suppose it means I will have more time for sewing (the extra work I am doing actually REQUIRES a computer to do the research and the library is on limited hours for the summer -- so that actually limits my income as well -- ARRRGHHHHH). So, if I am slow in responding to comments or a bit silent until next week -- well, let's blame the darned modem.
So, have a great weekend everyone -- and if I am not able to say it a Happy Father's Day to all of those celebrating it. I know I need to find something special to do for my own dh -- he's a wonderful father and a great partner, now to figure out how to tell him that!
Ooooops (for those of you on RSS feeds, sorry for the "duplicate" post here for this addition) -- for quilty content, read yesterday's post!
