First world problems

Someone really doesn't want us to have Internet.

As you might have read, our house was hit by lightning on Tuesday. All our TVs, AT&T router, Wii, coffee maker, and air conditioning motherboard were fried. I mention the coffee maker because I loved it the most (don't worry, we had a backup).

Today we received the replacement router from AT&T. Shiny and new, I pulled it out of the box, plugged it in...nothing. We received a bad box. It will be 2 more days before a technician can come to our house to give us a new box.

Our new TV won't be here until next week.

I say all that to cover the blog business, namely that I won't be rehashing Project Runway tomorrow.

But I'm also taking this as a sign. A sign to lay off the Internet, lay off the TV, forget about my email.  A little technology vacation, whether I like it or not.

I should also mention that my husband had an accident with his smartphone within 15 minutes of the lightning hitting the house. I don't have a smartphone. My 4 year old "dumb phone" is literally the only thing "connecting" us to the world.

I'll let you know how this involuntary break goes. Today has been easier than yesterday. Maybe by tomorrow I'll forget that Facebook even exists :)
