my long absence. I know, I know, I promised I was back. I honestly thought I was. Then our internet was turned off.
Let me start off by telling you that paperless billing is great. Nothing makes me crazier than all that bullshit that comes in the mail. It's a waste of paper and a waste of my awesome mail lady's time to carry. However, paperless billing fails you, when the emailed bill goes to the spam folder.
Of course we wondered why we had extra money in our account, but we were just happy to have some extra money coming into the christmas season for once! So just before we left for thanksgiving, we found out why we had extra money. Turns our we didn't pay our cable/internet bill two months because that didn't have a damn paper bill. We were officially offline.
Easy enough fix right? Sure, we paid our bill. Then told them to hook us back up. I can only guess that a LOT of people are not paying their bill, because they asked that we pay $450 to reinstate our internet. Not a deposit, just a payment. Well, we said no way mister internet company. Cable is really not that important to us and we'll just look for another internet company.
Well, between christmas, completely reorganizing our house, and preparing for the tornado that is my family coming for a visit; we totally ignored the internet situation. We didn't forget about it by any means. We jonesed for internet every day that we were without it.(btw, is this how you spell jonesed? Jonesed and Jonesing aren't in the spell check and I feel like this is a basic thing I should know)
Needless to say, we found a new internet provider. Even though we did under protest. Ok I was the only one protesting. I really hate all those hidden charges. Why not just be the one honest company and post what your real prices are. Well, Mario wanted the damn internet back and he found someone reasonable.
So now here we are. Back online and finally blogging again. Believe it or not, I have a lot to tell you about. This is only my lazy Sunday blog explaining I've been MIA because of stupidity.
