It’s not often I consider the benefits my day job offers (aside from a steady paycheck).
But today I’m happy to be at work on a Sunday. No. I haven’t lost my mind. It *is* supposed to be a day off and on one hand I do wish I were at home enjoying this gloriously sunny cool day.
However, I have no internet or telephone at home right now and I was in the middle of doing some things on my blog and emailing Rob when the connection was severed. Unplanned outages drive me insane!
So having to work today comes with the benefit of being able to access the internet and for that I am grateful.
How did our net get severed, you wonder?
Sigh. Well. My son wants a goat to show for FFA (Future Farmers of America). I told him he had to build a pen for it BEFORE we bought the goat. So he began the work of laying out the area, cutting cedar trees for gate posts. Then he began putting down the posts. And that’s when we lost our net.
Apparently he cut through the buried phone line either when digging the gate-post hole or with the t-posts. I’m not sure which, but I am positively sure we have no phone or internet now. As soon as the little hourglass popped up on my screen and the wait didn’t resolve in a few seconds, the sinking feeling of understanding what had happened took hold.
I went outside and took a look at where he’d chosen to put the pen and sure enough, that was the vicinity of the phone lines. Hindsight… I know.
So, I don’t have my regularly scheduled post today. I wanted to write about my budding writerly career/business plan.
Instead, I’m just letting you know that if I don’t post for the next few days, it’s because weekdays at work have been too busy lately. When I get the lines repaired at home, I’ll be back. And if the day job eases I’ll post when I can.
