Internet

I'm posting this morning because I was unable to post last night at home!  My internet wasn't working.  I was in denial at first, and continued to refresh my browser.  I checked every device in the house before admitting I had a problem.  I texted my mother-in-law to see if she had internet because she lives behind me and has the same provider.  My fears intensified when she told me that she too was without internet.  I wasn't feeling well (I had a fever again yesterday!), so it wasn't like I could clean or do anything else to occupy my mind.  I was just stuck in bed with no internet and no Netflix.  My eyes were red and swollen, so I couldn't read.  I called the internet service provider and was greeted with an automated message informing me that they were receiving a heightened call volume from customers in my area, and that they were investigating a POSSIBLE outage.  Possible? Such an optimistic stance!  I worried and worried about posting my Slice until 8:00 when I drifted off to sleep.  I awoke at 3:00 am and checked the internet again, but it was still down.  I experienced the same disappointment when I checked at 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, 6:30, and just before I left the house at 7:00.  I think I'll add "working internet" to my ongoing list of things I'm grateful for.
