Awake from a Deep Slumber

I was planning to be writing online here on Mylot this Friday afternoon but my plan remained a plan. My internet was not cooperating. It just went off 3 times that I gave up. After we had dinner and I have cleaned the kitchen, I was feeling irritated for not be able to execute my plan. Hubby was fixing the WLAN and it was not still working. Out of disappointment, I took a book which I have not read yet and went to bed reading Colin Dexter crime story THE JEWEL THAT WAS OURS. I was only up to chapter 4 reading and I went to sleep. It didn't happen to me before. I have slept before 8 in the evening and woke up from my deep slumber at midnight. I am so awake now and I am collecting my thoughts. I am drinking my tea now in bed and it is almost 2 at dawn. I couldn't sleep anymore. What happened? Am I addicted to internet now? Are you? What have I done when there was no internet, yet? What have you done? I could have written more on here but afraid the internet will be off again. We will have to contact our internet provider soon. Thanks for reading.

How frustrating that is. I took the afternoon off to go for a walk with hubs and spent the day reading. I read every day. Hope you can get back to sleep.

It was indeed frustrating that my heart was not into reading the crime story. I read everyday but online. I will just make my eyes tired and interact on Mylot until I can go back to sleep. Thanks @DianneN.

I can also spend days away from the internet but I want it to be my choice as well. Not, when I am having a writing plan for a day. Thanks and have a nice weekend @BelleStarr.

Sometimes you just need sleep. I'm sorry your Internet has gone off on you so much. I hope your provider can fix the problem. Life was easier before the Internet. Yes, I'm addicted to it too.

That's how frustrating. Since you were used to Internet working, you feel uneasy and despondent without it.

You obviously needed the sleep. The problem is only that now you will have problems falling asleep for the night.

Internet has become a basic necessity now. And it can really be frustrating if it doesn't coperate on a day when you have all the plans to use it.
