Sorry to be absent since yesterday, but I wanted to let you know that I am without Internet or phone service.
This problem all started on July 21st (yes, you heard me right) when I could not receive telephone calls and had intermittent use of the Internet. Sometimes it would work, other times it wouldn’t.
During that period, I contacted Verizon FOUR times and explained what was going on and they said it had something to do with an underground cable that needed to be repaired, which was affecting a certain area of Philadelphia and that they were working on it. In the past few days things seemed to be better, but then yesterday at 1:45 PM, I lost service again - and this time it did not come back.
And after contacting Verizon AGAIN, they told me that they were aware of the problem and would have my service restored today, by 3:30 PM.
HA! I still didn’t have any service at 4:30 PM.
And after contacting them yet AGAIN, they promised it would be fixed by Saturday at the latest.
To say the least, I am annoyed and frustrated.
I am presently sitting in Starbucks with my laptop and using their WiFi; quickly catching up on emails and posting this post.
I wanted to let you know that I won’t be posting tomorrow, but rather on Monday.
Supposedly, Verizon will be crediting my account for everyday I’ve had interrupted service.
And you better believe I’m going to hold them to it.
Anyway, have a great weekend everyone!
So sorry about this blogging interruption.
P.S. I turned off comments on this post.

Update (Sunday the 4th at 6:55 PM): Hey there peeps, just wanted to let you know that I am still without Internet or phone. And yet, I’m not at all surprised because I had a feeling this would happen. Anyhoo, since I’ve not been able to get online, one positive note is that it has given me LOADS of time to play around with my new camera and take pictures. I’ve been outdoors all weekend, snapping away and having fun.
I have no idea when I’ll be connected again (maybe by CHRISTMAS, do you think?)
Oh…and thanks SO MUCH for your comments everyone!
Please know that I’m sitting here in Starbucks on my laptop; missing you and longing to get back online again...

Have a great week everyone...x
Update (Tuesday the 6th at 9 PM): I finally got my phone and service restored - Yahooo! Thanks again for your comments and concern everyone! x
