Electric Blue Cables
As I mentioned in my last post, I was excited to get back to the real world after the wedding extravaganza last weekend. So you can imagine my anger disappointment when Maya woke up sick yesterday morning.
Now any good mother would be upset that her child is sick – and I am no exception – but since I aim to be 99.99% honest on this blog I’ll admit that I felt more sorry for myself when I realized that Maya would be home torturing me with questions all day long.
There. I said it. You can hate me if you want, and I totally deserve it, but find me a mom who loves to stay home with a sick kid and I’ll show you someone in denial.
Anyway, I got zero work done but our day was still fairly productive. Most importantly, Maya learned to tie her shoes!
After that we worked on her reading/math, took a walk to Trader Joe’s, returned something at Bloomingdale’s, bought a gift, and then returned home to make dinner for my parents and brother.
After cleaning up dinner I walked into the living room and couldn’t resist taking this picture:
Apparently Ali’s disease is contagious and now my entire family is addicted to technology. Next thing you know they’ll be comparing cable collections.
Speaking of cable collections, I had to dip into Ali’s precious stash today. Why you ask?
Well, I have Verizon to thank for that. Actually, I’d like to formally thank Verizon for allowing me to waste 3+ hours of my day making friends with their employees all over the world. I really enjoyed being switched from department to department only to be told that due to outages across the Los Angeles area I needed to reset my IP address. And when that didn’t work they determined I needed a new router. I know our router works just fine and it really is Verizon’s faulty service that is the problem, but whatever.
All I know is that right now there is only one internet connection, courtesy of the electric blue cable snaking down my living room. I am a bit scared to ponder the long-term effects of this one and only connection.
Things might get ugly around here and Verizon has only itself to blame.
