I had no Internet this weekend. In fact I’ve not had Internet at home for a week.
I tried and tried to fix it. I plugged and unplugged the cables over and over again. What usually works, didn’t work. OMG! No Internet? I can’t survive with out access.
I called Time Warner. They said it was a problem on my end of things. Thanks for nothing, and I’m back to square one.
So I continued to plug and unplug and restart my router many more times. It still doesn’t work. So I spent Saturday without Internet access. It was a nightmare.
Saturday is the day where I get up early, yes I know that is crazy, and I write. I’m an early bird. I do my best work in the morning. So I gave up and went to the gym. I tried again. It still didn’t work so I texted my son. I tried everything he said but it still didn’t work.
So I decided to go to the bank, run some errands and hit the grocery store. I came back and tried to fix it again. The Internet connection still didn’t work.
So I decided to bake some Christmas cookies. If I couldn’t get on the Internet, I had to keep busy somehow, so I baked and baked and baked and baked till I ran out of plastic containers.
Thankfully, I still had old school cookbooks and recipes on index cards. I recently dumped books and recipes torn out of magazines in favor of online access to millions of recipes. Why have all those books and paper cluttering up your kitchen when you have access to the Internet? It’s a good thing I had back up.
But the best recipe for getting your holiday baking done is to shut down your Internet access. I now have a freezer full of cookies. I doubt I would have gotten it done otherwise.
