A Wasted Weekend

Well, it was wasted as far as technology goes at the Quilting Condo!

We had a loss of internet service in our area this weekend.  What a disappointment!  I had several things I needed to research, as well as some work to do. There's only so much I could do without a good connection to the internet.  Yes, I used the iPad as much as I could but I've decided it's really just for fun and not for doing serious projects........

Since I don't have a TV downstairs yet, I spend a lot of time upstairs doing a whole lot of nothing.  I piddled around doing a little organizing but my heart just wasn't in it. So I took a lot of naps.  Penny was happy when I curled up on the floor next to her.  We both fell asleep.  Of course, she didn't have a bit of a problem getting up, but for me, it was kind of funny trying to get up off the floor with a stiff back and tangled in a quilt. 

Internet is back up this morning, and I hope to get the TV connected tonight.  No, my cable provider won't come out.  I have to call them and they'll walk me through programming the remote.  That should prove to be interesting.  We'll see how that goes!

What a bummer! But I do agree on iPad, I love mine but its works best for smaller projects and scooting around the Internet. Hope you get up and running quickly. We have Charter and I aman expert at rebooting without them...but it doesn't work if the signal isn't good.

Not a wasted week end if you rested and spent time playing with Miss Penny. :-)

Isn't it frustrating when the electronics don't work? I can manage find without them if I've got the choice, but let them break and I get cranky!
