7:00 a.m. Awake and ambitious
7:15 a.m. Turn on computer
7:30 a.m. Wait for home internet to connect
7:45 a.m. $@%!@^ @$^@@
7:46 a.m. Connect internet to phone
8:00 a.m. !@^%!@ Cook breakfast while waiting
8:30 a.m. Woohoo! It’s connected! Check Facebook and quickly hit send/receive button on email.
8:32 a.m. ^!#^!& It’s timed out.
8:40 a.m. –10:00 a.m. %^$##^* Still struggling to get connection
10:00 a.m. @#&@ @$#^# Forget it- ambition is gone. Another day is lost. Big thanks to Verizon and WildBlue for their lack of dependable and quick service and an even bigger thanks to CenturyLink for leaving me on the waitlist for DSL for over 10 years, all the while extending it to my neighbors on each side of my house.
11:00 a.m. Enjoying the day with the kids but feeling guilty for not working as much as I should have.
I think I might have spent more time actually muttering expletives than being connected!
