Off the Grid

Its been a horrible week for electronics in my house. My phone and computer both bit the bullet this week! Being "off the grid" has made me realize just how dependent we can become on technology.

I spent 2 hours on the phone with the T-Mobile tech support yesterday trying to fix my ailing Blackberry. I guess my problem was quite severe because I talked to 3 different people in the US as well as a tech in India and another in Canada! After the 5th tech and no answers, they finally decided send me a replacement phone. What a waste of a day!

My Etsy shop has been very quiet this week, which is both a blessing and a curse. With limited internet access, I haven't been relisting or twittering very often, and I've realized just how many visitors this drives to my shop. I'm lucky in a way that its been slow, and that I haven't sold any prints. I couldn't even print one right now! I'm hoping that a friend of a friend can fix my computer this week, otherwise I will be investing in an IMac sooner than I had expected to. I was lucky to get an external hard drive for my birthday a few weeks back, so all of my art files are safe and sound, thank goodness!

Oh, I forgot to mention that my hair dryer died too.

I really hope that next week is better and that next week I have some new art to show you. Cheers.
