Phone company woes and other gripes

So, yesterday the phone company (actually some local folks they hire to do that kind of thing) came out to lay the new permanent phone line to replace the temporary line they had to put in to replace the old permanent line that they cut.

There are two phone lines here, Line 1 (the main line, the one in the book, the one everyone knows) and Line 2 (the modem line, the one no one knows, and more to the point the one that is only hooked up to the modem and the phone we keep by the computer). They left and while Line 2 worked just fine (no internet interruption :)) Line 1 did not. Dan got it working again when he got home--seems to have been a problem with the phone by the computer. So that phone is now turned off--therefore no answering machine and no easy way to use Line 2 to call out on. But Line 1 was working.

Until this afternoon. For some reason it's off again. Grr.

So yeah, this continues to be the season of mechanical failures. Now we're down to one car because the other needs brake work (so I have no phone and no car at the moment). And the heater is making sounds like someone is down in the basement banging the pipes with a baseball bat--which might be in the realm of normal or might not, but it's really disconcerting in any case.

So who does a person have to offer to to get this to stop? :)

When you find out, let me know! My water just shut off all of a sudden today. Argh. Nothing like being pregnant with no bloody water!

Oh, no water is the worst! I hope they get it fixed soon.

Dan did get the phones working when he got home from work, btw; no idea how he did it, I'm just glad he did it :).

Oh good! I couldn't live without my phone, specially not now! I'm glad he worked it!

I wonder if its something in the air with all these mechanical failures!

I don't know, but there have been an awful lot of them lately. Very weird. Well, very annoying in any case :).
