No internet on Sunday? What else do you want from me, my first born child?
Last week I had no internet for an entire day (I was switching from Comcast to another cable internet provider), and I swear I had withdrawal symptoms...

A few weeks ago I was offline for a day because my modem died; very annoying.

Thanks for setting me straight, everyone. I wasn't thinking it through, was still thinking like and empl*yed person. Bad experiment for me, I was shaking by 12:08 a.m. I didn't even make it through 24 hours; by 9:00 p.m. was checking my online class for new discussion posts, but refrained from posting; what else would I do during TV commercials? If I must do an internet-free day again, maybe I'll try a Tuesday. Oh forget that, I won't know what day it is. I'm on a steep learning curve here! Thanks for the help.

I notice that Friday it's official!! That's so exciting, and I am really happy for you. Do you have to go back in this week?

439 more days, here....

Thanks, I'm at work this week and it's AGONY! Not physical but mental because I'm training the boss' wife who has neither the skills nor the background for the j*b. And worse, it seems that one of the meds. I'm taking acts as a truth serum. Four more days to try to hold back and not let on about her incompetence. And then it's .

438, 437... you'll get there.

Training the boss's wife sounds hideous!! But, it will soon be over and you will be FREE, free as a bird.

I know - - 439 isn't too bad. I will be there soon.
