OMG! Panic-city!

I'll try not to sound like I'm feeling too sorry for myself since Librarian caught me whining in my last blog...but as our move from our current house to our new house -- still being built and hopefully completed by August 1st or we'll be living in temporary housing for a month or so -- Hmmm...I've just hit a grammatical wall and can't complete the last sentence in any meaningful way.

Where was I?  Oh yes, packing boxes, setting up yard sales, etc.  

Karen is very excited.  Matching furniture, thinking about curtains, placement of things.  I'm providing muscle since I don't really care where things go.

But today...panic just hit!   Since it is a new house in a new development, the phone/Internet companies have not yet laid cable lines.   I'm sure they will but nobody will give us a time table yet.

In other words -- no Internet!!!   I can do a few things, I suppose, by taking our iPad to Starbucks but this will effectively shut down my self-employment as a stock trader since I need high speed DSL to keep up with streaming quotes, etc.  

No Internet!   I'll have to live in the real world for awhile!   Holy Crap!  

I'm not complaining!  Maybe it will be good for me!  

Okay, maybe I am complaining.


  1. Well, being there are people across the northeast that do not have access to the internet, lights, air-conditioning, cold are certainly going to get some perspective on this...;-)

  2. You, what about us twisted minds who get a good hee haw out of your posts. What are we going to do? B&B withdrawal what could be worse. They will get those lines in.

  3. Hopefully, everything will be set and ready by the time you move in.
    Two years ago, during a thunderstorm the cable connection to my house was burnt to cinder by lighting stroke. It took maybe 5 days or so for the phone company to replace it, and during those few days I still had my iphone to read and write emails on, but it is just so much more comfortable to go online from a proper computer with a realistically sized keyboard, isn't it!
    And you are right about not wanting to use a public spot for such sensitive (and so much!) data.

  4. pls keep up the photo shoot-outs then up-date us when the net is on.. congrats on the new house.. it's really pathetic how people cannot live a life anymore without the net!

  5. Libraries have cable connections. Seek the library. Keep blogging, just keep blogging! Good luck with the move!

  12. I have been browsing on-line more than 3 hours these days, but
    I by no means found any interesting article like yours.
    It's lovely value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content material as you probably did, the web might be a lot more helpful than ever before.
