What a Week....

Sorry I haven't been around for a few days.  I have a good excuse, really I do! Someone down the street cut through our internet fiber optic cable while putting in a sprinkler system.  It took half a dozen calls to our internet provider to figure out what was wrong.  I can't complain too much, we have had no problems for the past four years.  It did take them five days to figure out what the problem was though. Hmmmm....guess when your customer service department is in another country it takes awhile.  They never bother telling you these things when you sign up  of course!

I will be back to a more normal routine soon and have a lot of catching up to do.  In the mean time I want to tell you about a monthly post I will be doing for the Eco Etsy Team blog.  Fortunately I completed my post last week, the day before they cut the cable!  It was waiting for its post date which is today. The title is The Joy of Native Plants.  I will try and get around to visit all of your blogs as soon as I can, I know I have missed out on some fabulous posts!

If you stop by the Eco Etsy blog, please leave a comment.  Have a great day!  ~~Diane~~

  4. How frustrating! I think once most companies have our cash they couldn't care less when something goes wrong. So annoying!

    1. Thanks Sulky and Ada! Annoying and frustrating! I thought I would flip out every time I had to call their automated customer service number and it kept hanging up on me after I had already waited 5-10 minutes!
