Life Without Connections

I am currently at Grace's, using her laptop after a very loooooong day at the Renaissance Festival. Had a wonderful time, but more on that later.

Right now I want to update on my technological status.

We have a Hotspot, which is basically a fancypants version of a mobile USB modem. It bogs down horribly and can usually only handle one computer at a time. Because of this, my internet is basically cut down to e-mail and the occasional few minutes of facebook.

It's been nearly a month since I was at TLC at all. I missed it dreadfully at first, but not so much now. My family needs my attention most at the moment. Still, I miss talking to my friends. Our new house is 1/4 mile from the road, and 40 minutes from our old hometown (where our church and my workplace are). It's quiet, remote, and foreign, and what with no TV and extremely limited internet I feel very cut off from the world. I drove to Grace's in torrential rain because I had no idea we were under flood warnings until right before I left. I might as well live under a rock for all I know of the world beyond the mailbox these days.

I don't mean to sound desperate (okay, I don't mean to SOUND desperate, but I'm feeling it...) but if those of you who have my e-mail or snail mail address could drop me a line now and then, I'll certainly welcome it and reply. Tell me what's new with you and what's going on in your corner of the world. Even if it's just "We went grocery shopping today. I hate the produce section." I want to hear from you.

We're moving! The HORROR!

So... y'all already know we're moving.

 What you may not know is that we won't have DSL anymore. Goin' back to the old "bee-doooo, bee-doooo Khhhhhhhhh..." dial up. And I thought we lived in the sticks now.

And this also means we'll be without it entirely for a few weeks until we get the new phone worked out. We're working on a few options, none of them perfect. Long story short, my internet habits will be making a big change. Don't expect to see me around much this month. :-(

Those of you who have my number can still reach me by phone or text.

Pray for us. There's just all sorts of craziness going on with this move. Seems every time I turn around there's another surprise waiting for me.

Laundry calls. I'd meant this to be longer, but it's time I signed off for the night. God bless you all.
