I thought I would post about trying to make a flower arrangement on Friday, but we had a few electrical and internet issues here. Earlier in the week, the power company replaced an electrical meter, which was the beginning of our problems.
Every time the water pump for the well ran, our lights dimmed. On Thursday night, our three-year-old microwave sounded like it was on it's deathbed. Power surges were putting our electrical appliances in danger. We called the power company, who sent out a man to replace the meter for the second time.
Soon after he left, however, we realized that the problems were still with us. Friday morning, our cable service died. The power company came at one o'clock. They were still here at 2:30 when the cable guy came. We had the power turned off at that point, so we had to live without TV, phone and internet service for another day. Aaaaarrrrgh!
It was finally determined that the service line into the house had to be replaced. Luckily, my friend Robin's husband is an electrician, and he came to our rescue. Our power was restored by 3:30pm. But we had to wait another 24 hours for the cable service to be repaired. I swear it was the longest 24 hours of my life! LOL
Anyway, I'm so glad to be back online, and able to visit all my bloggy friends. So these flowers are for you. Happy Monday! :)
