No Rest for the Wicked

I sure am glad to be sleeping in my own bed, but the stars were against me this weekend. I needed to put together a flyer for Relief Society and a small justification document for our big new client over the weekend. This was in addition to the Relief Society luncheon, nephew's birthday party, and Easter dinner with the family.

On Friday evening, the internet just stopped working at our house. That meant that I had no access to the information I needed for the flyer or the justification document. I was not a happy camper, but I was sure that the AT&T DSL helpdesk would make it all right for me. I was wrong. When I called, they told me their systems were down until Monday and I could call back then.

That's when I had the mild breakdown. The DH was out putting gas in my car and delivering some Easter goodies, so he got to miss it. Lucky man. There were two other results of this news. One is the decision to quit AT&T DSL for good (after more than 15 years of loyalty) and the second was to go into work on Sunday afternoon to get caught up on those things that required internet access.

Today, it looks like things are all coming together. The justification document is being edited and I have everything I need for the Relief Society flyer. I'm also more or less done with writing the information I need for the big bid. And this evening, I'm going to the mall to sign up for Clearwire. All's well.

Cranky internet service also irritates me. Good luck with your new company!

Slow down sis.
I've heard bad stuffs about the Clearwire (mostly from coworkers here).
Apparently rain and trees are bad for Clearwire... got either of those in your area?
Ideally you'd get a trial period to see how well the reception is in your area.

I hope this continues to be a Happily Ever After ending. So, was the breakdown bad? Sadly I always seem to have little witnesses to my embarrassing breakdowns.

I can't say I've heard good things about Clearwire, either. Check out the reviews on and see if any of them look better than others. might be your best choice, if a mediocre one.
