Out of Commission for a While

In my attempts to simplify life, we are getting rid of our extra phone line. I'm not sure why we even have it. We got the additional phone line years ago pre-cell phone and pre-DSL. Now that I make most of my calls from my cell phone and we don't have the crappy dial up 56K modem, the additional phone line is just a waste of money. Unfortunately, the DSL line is connected to the additional phone line that is going to be cancelled so I will have to transfer the DSL service to the main line. This wouldn't be so bad except that it will mean an interruption of DSL service for a week! So that means the only internet access I will have will be from work and I will have to find something else to do with my time at home other than surfing the internet.

People used to live without the internet for their whole lives; can I live without it for a week? We shall see. Maybe, I'll like it so much I'll get rid of it for good. :)

Your phone company must really suck if it takes that long. I doubt you could ever get rid of it. How else could you look at bad websites? Not at work! You can actually post via email, so plan your posts out at home in the evening, and post at lunch time during work!

Yes, it's amazing how the Internet became so essential -- so quickly...

If you went without Internt, that would mean no Blogging.

I think we can all agree that would be unacceptable :-)

Good job paring down your expenses! We cancelled our DirecTV because we weren't watching it. It's easy to let those subscriptions eat into your bank account.
