Given that I got up before 5am, yesterday was pretty disappointing. I feel like I did next to nothing. I didn’t work out, work in the yard, read. Heck….I didn’t really get a nap in either. The worst part about it happened around 4pm. I was at the computer and lightning obviously struck close to the house. Or did it strike the house? Whatever happened, the modem was not working properly. I found that wireless still worked, but the wired devices (desktop and cable receiver in living room) did not work. After spending about 30 minutes on the phone with AT&T (after my 3rd phone call to them), it was determined that a technician would need to come out to the house. Someone could come Saturday between 12-4 or 4-8. I chose 12-4. It’s now after 3pm. I am unforgiving of any company that schedules such a large window and then can’t make it during that window. And if he tries to charge me saying the wiring was damaged, I will be furious. I was actually going to go work at the library with Mitchell, and while Julie could have stayed here and waited for the technician, I decided it was best that I did.
Another bad part about all this: I finally got at least Mitchell to commit to watching “Aliens” with us on the DVR and when I sat down to turn it on, I realized the DVR could not be accessed without the availability of the non-working box. Arrrrrrggggggghhhhhh.
