My nemesis this week
For the last two days I've had no power from 8 to 5, thanks to three of these lovely things behind my house that Edison, in their infinite wisdom, have decided to replace - all in the same week. So, because I have no power, I have no Internet connection either. And because my land line phone is connected through the Internet, I've had no land line either. Tomorrow is day #3, and hopefully the last day.
It's not until you have no access to the outside world that you realize how much you depend on these things like electricity, phone, and the Internet. Because I can't get a wireless connection at home other than my own, I've had to toddle down to the city library in order to get any work done. And while I'm there, it's a mad dash to get caught up on all my emails from work. Almost 100% of my communication at work is through email, as well as meetings with webinars and the transferring of all my work. So you can see the havoc this has created.
Some people have asked me why I just don't go down to the local Starbucks. Well, that would be nice if there were tables available. And besides, I know the first thing I'd do would be to order a latte. And another. And another. Those things are fattening.
So no blogging for another day or so. I hope to get caught up on Saturday.
I must be getting old, because this glitch has made me all out of sorts. And tired.
The only good thing is that our weather has been unseasonably cool this week, so I haven't had to worry about no air conditioning.
Talk to you all in a few days.
