Unplugged Melody - 5 Days Sans Internet

By Forevermelody
Yesterday morning I dragged myself out of bed and over to the computer, as I do every morning. I pull up firefox and nothing is there. I restarted the router and then remembered: I moved the phone line over to the new house.
We had originally thought we'd move by March 7th, then the 18th, then the 21st --- ugggh. I had moved the utilities three times and having just decided to move on Sunday the 27th, I failed to stop the moving of the phone before it was too late.
So, here I am sipping delicious Temple coffee, listening to Jazz. I'm so cultured. 
What does one do without the internet? We used to watch TV, but now we only do that over the internet. All our DVDs are packed. We even canceled our Netflix DVD delivery and only use the streaming feature. We are so dependent on the internet in ways I didn't even realize. Cooking, all my cook books are packed. In fact all our books packed.
Here are the things I found I can do without the internet and I've been doing them to fill my time:
  • clean
  • draw
  • watch Firefly (borrowed from friends)
  • stack boxes
  • laundry
  • listen to the radio
I'm sure i'll think of some other things... but here is the product of yesterday's internetless escapades:
