I suppose I just needed to know that I really could survive 12 days without the internet.
I will admit that having such a situation forced upon me did not make me a happy camper.
So, perhaps I just received a great lesson in being patient.
I was not a good student.
Perhaps I needed a refresher course in persuasive communication: cajoling sales reps, buttering-up technicians, and being nicely aggressive in persuing an earlier installation date than May 25th (can you imagine?????).
Or maybe I just needed to focus on unpacking.
Whatever. I'm on-line again...and I must say that this fiber optic line with the mere 5 MB per second is simply wonderful.
