I get up every morning, check my email, prepare my day...and so forth. Today, the internet is down, comcast said it would be until about 9 a.m. until they get it up and running, no worries, I take a drink of coffee and think, this will give me a chance to prepare for the biggest dig to finish up the large hole. I smile, and am off and running. An hour later I have run my errands and low and behold I find out I have made an error in my calculations on my dig. In this moment I get a call from the rental company letting me know they have to bring over the equipment. I am in a panic, discombobulated, feeling inadequate, and wondering, why in the world am I trying to do this?
Normally I would have taken a break, but I had to press forward...lucky me I didn't get distracted by the rest of the world, and continued on. I figured out my mistake, remeasured, measured again, and one more time to be sure. The equipment arrived, I smiled, all the while, I wondered, why is the internet down?
I dig, and dig, and take a break, and think gee: I can't check my bank account, can't listen to my music, no T.V. to watch while I eat lunch....HOLY CRAP...I am addicted to the internet.
This isn't a bad thing, but I thought, I need a back up plan, and so I made one. I smiled, feeling very accomplished at the end of the day: My hole is nearly done, I got the house picked up, pulled out an old radio, and really enjoyed the sun.
Sorry, I am not being very clear: So let me be. All of us feel alone, isolated, but the internet, in all its faults, with the trolls, the jerks, the people always trying to sell us something, there is one thing it always delivers: We are not alone. We have each other....
And so brings in the movie I watched this evening, after going to redbox, and happy that it took my debit card, was Delivery Man. A man has 533 children. WOW. Could you imagine, the fright, the confusion, the troubles....BUT oh the joy. And isn't that what the internet is....hundreds and hundreds upon hundreds of kids...reaching out...looking for interaction and love. Though it may seem bleak, and at any moment the internet could go down and we would not have as many friends...That doesn't mean we can't enjoy each other for now. Thank you all for being my friends, and today, I am grateful that I get to meet so many unique and different people, with different ideas and thoughts. I love you all and Thank You for being part of my life.
FYI...Should be done digging the hole tomorrow... YEAH!!!! Now to support the walls and build the roof. :)
As always have a beautiful evening. OXXOOOOXXXX Elicia
P.S. In the meantime I pray for the speedy recovery of the person who had the unfortunate accident this morning (and Really I pray for all those in need of a prayer) You can read about the accident that took out the internet here.
