The TV’s working again

Remember my little grumpy post last night about how we can’t watch any TV until a repairman can come next weekend?

Apparently, the universe took pity on me. Just on a whim, my husband clicked on the television last night to see if it might be possible to at least watch the DVR’d programs that we had. And lo and behold, the satellite system worked. And he found himself watching a current highlights program on the MLB channel.

Of course, the Red Sox were in a rain delay, and the Braves had already played, but still! We cheered. We don’t know how it happened, or why, and we’re certainly not going to cancel the service call, since you never know when it will stop working again. But we were glad, just the same.

Yes, we’re addicted to our technology here. Between the smartphones, the laptop, the iPad, the computer, the satellite TV and the satellite radio in our cars, we’re hooked.

But I’m reasonably confident that we’re not the only ones. Have you ever had to go cold-turkey on your favorite technology? What did you do?

LATE BREAKING NEWS: False alarm. The TV’s out again. I knew it was too good to be true.
