It's Like Moving, Only Worse

We've changed internet carriers.  

I sent out an email to friends and family letting them know that we were changing, just in case something unforseen happen and we appeared to fall off the face of the information superhighway.  

One friend responded the following way:  "I hope all goes well.  It's like moving.  Only WORSE."  

It's so true!  I agonized over the decision: Should we change?  What if it's not fast?  Will we lose all our emails?  Will we lose all our contacts?  How do we switch our address book?  How does this ALL WORK?  And me, being the tech-savvy chick that I am (NOT), was feeling a bit befuddled by all the interwebby changing thingees.  (See, I am OH so savvy.)

You don't realize, until you're in the midst of a change like this, how dependent you are on your friendly neighborhood internet carrier.  I'm not so sure that's a good thing!

The good news is that we have moved successfully over to our new carrier.  And I am breathing easier.  We have thirty days to make the switch, and I am very happy thus far with the ease at how it has all worked.

Just thought I'd share.  It is like moving.  Without all the furniture, of course.

Oh I know, there is so much ground to cover when you change providers.
