At any rate, after racing around like crazy and getting a message from the internet provider that their service was down and they didn't know when it would be back, I realized that I had better give my Etsy shop a vacation. Sounds easy? Yes. If you have internet! Let's see...
- no internet at my house
- no neighbors home next door
- sister is with hubby at a 'gig' in Prescott Valley
- library is closed (welcome to the small town life!)
- nearest computer is an hour away... no, wait - that library is closed by now, too...
Ahem. Step outside and get some fresh air.

And now go do something else. Like clean, exercise, enjoy the critters, rest, read, and paint. I did them all - and not in that order, either.
Friday I took a trip to the local county fair (yep! there will definitely be a blog post about that!) and Saturday I recovered from all the running around I did on Friday. Today, I went to church, came home and made a delicious lunch of pancakes and eggs with my daughter's homemade strawberry syrup. And I played solitaire (because, you see, the computer works!).
And then *poof* the internet was back! Well, imagine that. I knew it would return - I just didn't know when. One thing I did know was that I could not 'hurry up' the return of the internet by worrying about it. So, I relaxed and got caught up on some of the other few million things there are to do around here.
So next time you have a technology hiccup, just relax and go do something 'in real life' and, if nothing else, enjoy a little peace and quiet!
