Back to life and work as normal

By Katharine Swan On Monday, April 17, 2006 At 4:24 PM


This afternoon the phone company technician showed up to look for the break in the lines. Thankfully, it was not in the house, so it was the phone company's responsibility to fix, meaning we won't be charged. Having nothing better to do since I couldn't work, and being interested in this kind of stuff anyway, I followed the guy around as he searched for the break. He muttered a lot, which I think was his way of trying to keep me updated, but I didn't get most of what he said. As far as I could tell, there was two disconnects: one at the main box, and one where the lines run in the alley behind the house.

In any case, he climbed down from his ladder, and just like magic the lights on the modem were on when we went inside! Hip hip hooray! It's such a relief to have my connection to the world back again.

I made today's deadline, and now I can take care of some other things that I needed internet access for. There are still things I need to do around the house - unpacking, moving stuff around, etc. - but I neglected my work so much last week that I think I'd better work for a bit now.
