Yesterday Scott and I managed to do something that we have never been able to do before.
Get your mind out of the gutter – we have kids, which means we have no sex life.
No, we managed to disconnect and break down mom’s old computer, then haul out the new one and put it together – WITHOUT FIGHTING!
Alright, I exaggerate – we didn’t fight until right before we left. Scott had some brilliant idea about how to make her DSL with Verizon (the first time she’s had anything faster than snail speed) stop making the humming noise on the other phones. He played around with it for two minutes and then the internet didn’t work anymore!
Keep in mind that he helped me get it out and plug it all in, but I did the main setting up/downloading, ect. In 2 minutes he destroyed all that work.
I could’ve killed him!
Fortunately it caught my attention when he mentioned the black phone wire.
“umm – Scott? The phone wire from the modem isn’t black – it’s tan.”
“What?” (as he crawls out and checks because apparently I’m color blind and didn’t know it) “Oh – oh yeah – hang on a sec.”
A minute later he plugs the RIGHT phone line into the wall and voila! The internet’s back.
He’s got one more week of work, then he’ll be off for 2 weeks. Meanwhile one of MY bosses has decided to shut down his operation, so now I’m scrambling trying to find more work…ugh LOL. Anyone wanna hire an awesome freelance writer?!
