Or, rather, a small connector outside our house has expired and needs to be replaced.
It was more of a shock that it probably should have been, to come home last night and be told that there would be no way to go online until Friday.
I actually think my hands began to shake and I know I checked more than once* to make sure that little connector wouldn’t fire up just one more time, for mama. And to see if there were any free WiFi signals floating about the neighborhood. But Panera Bread and the library are out of reach, and all my neighbors are far too security-minded. Drat them.
Once I settled down, I tried to see this as a sort of an involuntary Freedom program—and I did manage about 800 words before bedtime. So there’s that.
Still sucks though. And I can feel the webdrawl spiders making my thumbs twitch . . .
The company says they’ll get to us earlier if they can. Meanwhile, I’ll be doing my best to keep up on my work breaks, but please forgive my sporadic posts and comments.

I will pray for you.
Thanks, MSB—spare one for my family, too, as they’ll be living with me through this . . .
This is your muse, messing with you.
Say it ain’t so. But I feel your withdrawal – when it’s windy ours goes out LOTS.
This happened once when we first moved into the house, but we were too busy to mind at the time.
I have thirty minutes before I have to clock in right now—let the race begin!
Nuts. I just sent you an e-mail. Okay, deep breaths…this was all about me, right? No? Oh. Nuts again.
I’ll look at it right now, Lyra!
Sending you virtual chocolate. Oh wait …
It’s the thought that counts, though Cadbury rolls would be nice, too. Or Hobnobs . . . 😀
Tomorrow’s Friday! Thank God I didn’t read this until Thursday night. I’d have called 911 for you, and I’m not sure they’d fully understand your little crisis like I do…
I love that this was posted under “tough stuff.” I also love that today is Friday, so you shall soon have the fix that you need! But tell me more about this 800 words…
