Yesterday, the cable company had some kind of fiberoptics problem and our area had no internet or TV (some had no phone if you had cable for your phone) for 24 hours!! It was Hellacious!!! My kids nearly had a nervous breakdown when they couldn't watch their shows or play their favorite internet computer games. I couldn't check my e-mail, the purse forum, or (GASP!) shop online! My husband and I actually had to converse w/ each other last nite! I swear at times you could hear crickets chirping. Thank God this morning I awoke and all was right w/ the world once again. I'm sure I'll have some lingering, horrible post traumatic syndrome from the whole experience though.
