This was my last Saturday and Sunday off work for the forseeable future. I’m almost done with the transition phase of my new job and then I’ll have a schedule that changes each week. I had planned on getting a lot of blogging done yesterday. Ok I didn’t actually plan it, but I thought about it and assumed that’s what I would do.
I’m up and about right as Richard is leaving for work and I realize that there’s no internet connection or phone line. Of course, he blames the cats. Sometimes they like to knock stuff over. We reset the modem, but that didn’t help. Richard left for work, so I borrowed Jake’s cell phone to call Mediacom.
Of course, I got the dreaded “we’re experiencing an outage in your area, high level of calls, blah” and then they pretty much hang up on you. The recorded message didn’t even give you the chance to speak with a representative.
So what was I to do with a forced vacation from the internet? I could be productive and clean the house. If it was nicer out, I could have taken the dogs for a walk. I could have gotten caught up on some reading. Jake had a friend over so spending time with him was out.
What did you decide to do, Billie? Did you get a lot done? Well, sort of. I did a little DVR cleaning and watched nine episodes of Revenge!
I thought I would do a lot of complaining being without the internet, but it was pretty awesome just to hang out and watch tv. I do feel like I didn’t get anything accomplished, but I think it’s ok to have those days now and then.
I had a lot of trouble forcing myself to get onto the computer today to work on blog stuff. I kept having these little thoughts about the rest of the shows on the DVR that need to be watched and how a second day of watching tv would be ok.
