Please Excuse The Technical Difficulties
At some point last week our internet service totally fizzled out. I don't know anything about the miracle of the internet other than that when it is not functioning propertly, things around our house are turned upside down. Initially we thought it was something simple, but after Christian had two or three apparently arduous conversations with Cox tech support, they decided to schedule an appointment to come to the house to further investigate (and, we hope, fix) the problem. There is nothing simple about scheduling an appointment to meet with a Cox technician, particularly when everyone in the house works (or is in school) full time. There are rules - someone 18 years of age or older must be there to meet the technician, there cannot be any dogs in the house, the computer area must be moved two feet from the wall and outlet to allow room for the tech to work, and the list goes on. At any rate, we will do what we need to do to comply with the demands in the hopes that internet will be restored by Wednesday night. I miss blogging, checking Facebook and doing whatever else it is I do while on the internet (shopping, I guess?). Christian has suffered the most though - totally crippled by his inability to obsessively check his fantasy football stats.
