I'm back up, healthy and back online. Unfortunately, I was on the telephone line--not internet--most of the morning.
I tried to reschedule an appointment for myself (they have all been on Wednesdays--the boy's library day--and he knows I've missed more of his than his sister's); make one more for me (separate issue but at least that will be on a Thursday); find someone to fix the mailbox (a car slid into it at some point yesterday) and and an assortment of other phone calls this morning meant doing the breakfast dishes with the phone on speaker. I put the baby down for a nap and listened to a depressing selection of hold music, interspersed with "your call is important to us..." every thirty seconds.
Now that I have spent a full hour on the phone, I need to find a way to fold laundry and type at the same time.
It's time for a headset (and voice recognition software)! ;)
