OH NO!!!


I have just gotten some devastating news! I don't know how I am going to be able to cope. I just know that my life will not be full and rewarding for at least...oh...about 13 days. This afternoon, my internet connection, my telephone service, and my cable tv has all been cut off! Disconnected, I tell you! Shut down, cut loose, turned off! Can you feel my pain?

I am sitting in the doctor's office with Alex, and fortunately they have wireless internet here, or I could not be sharing my dark day with you, my friends, my dear bloggy buddies.

For some strange reason, the 'powers that be' will not let you wait until you move to turn off service to one house, and turn it on at another. Of course they won't...that would be too convenient. So, since my desire is to move into the Creek House on the 15th...and since I want to have cable, telephone, and internet....YES! I want it all!...I am forced to comply with this travesty.

Therefore, I share my sad story with you all, so you will know why I am absent and not as available as usual. I will try to find places to check in with you and keep you updated on my fascinating daily experiences. ..and the 'fun folks' I encounter! :)
Bear with me, if you will be so gracious, and I'll be back with you just as soon as possible!

Wow, that's CRAZY! You'll have to do what I used to do when I first got a laptop - I found certain places where I could park my car in town and hook in to someone's wireless internet service! I'll be checking every day as I usually do.

David is screaming at my feet. What is it about today. I am amazed with how difficult they make things-the cable company that is. Well, I have wireless. Come on over and hang out.

That's aweful!! I've never heard of such a thing. I'm glad they don't do that in our neck of the woods!!! We'll be waiting for your return.

This is NOT good! I'm just glad I'll be out of town for a few days....maybe by the time I get back you'll be almost up and running. The pain we must endure just so we can communicate with those we have become addicted to...I think we should write letters to your cable company...WHO says you CAN'T have two accounts...two different connections at two different locations...I mean for goodness sakes...sounds like that like loosing money!! I mean seriously they could charge and arm and a leg if they wanted to...and most likely those of us who are addicted would pay whatever...just don't take my internet connection away!

You will be missed...check in when you can...and I'll do the same...I'm headed to Cali again...I'll tell you all about what's going on when I get back.

Blessings...
Teresa

How inconsiderate...the cable company...not you silly! I hope you'll find somewhere you can get on line periodically. We'll be here when you do.

Hugs!

Never heard of such a thing, but I haven't moved in many years. Thanks goodness for cell phones and WiFi. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I hope you can find some connection somewhere before serious withdrawal symptoms set in!

Love your new Christmas header!

Oh no! How will I get my daily dose of laughter? I will just have to re-read the 24 cent story again, you know it never gets old. Hang in there.
Smiles!
