No Internet!

I feel like my right arm has been amputated. I lost my internet connection last Thursday evening. Peter and Barbara (the house owners) have a wireless router downstairs that, up until a few days ago, worked flawlessly for me. Now, for some reason, it's on the fritz. Peter says he thinks he might have to buy a new one. So I just have to wait. In the meantime, I'm going crazy!

I brought my laptop to Nikki's place this morning so I could get online. I'm trying to remember everything I wanted to do or send or check on but I know as soon as I get home I'll think of something I forgot.

I remember the days when we had no internet or cell phones or home printers; we all did just fine. Now, though, I'm absolutely lost without any one of them...

Aieee, I'm commenting but you won't see it until you can find an internet cafe!

Hang in there, Mom -- I know it feels like you're having to push everything along all at once, that nothing -- whether work or home or the cat or your phone! -- will just *work right* on its own the first time; but everything'll be settled and putting merrily along its own track before you know it. It's all part of the craziness of rebooting your *entire* life from scratch. But it's so worth it in the end! Hey, by the time spring is in full swing, we'll be toasting the successful jump-start of your new career!
