It's been 10 very long months without Internet service at our home.
Here is a timeline of those events.
We moved from our home in town to a rental property in December 2015, and we could not get Internet service.
We moved into our new home in May 2016 and there was not a reliable Internet provider option.
Finally we have Internet in our new home. I shared the moment on my personal Facebook page this week. When the Internet people arrived to do the install, one of the boys said, "Now my dreams have come true." I wanted to hug them when they left but I knew that would be weird. We felt like the family in the funny commercials that had to live without internet. It's hilarious in commercials, not so much in real life. The struggle--it was real!
September has been a good month.
We are back to normal. It feels like the new house is perfect.
We take access to the Internet for granted and I have a new appreciation for how much I used it without even realizing it. Of course, I've missed blogging and my social media has been limited, but there were other things that were more important like paying bills and taking care of appointments. It's difficult to be an adult now without reliable internet.
I'm excited to get back to blogging and writing some posts about our new home. I haven't been able to share images of the house, like the photo above of our chalkboard pantry door.
If anyone out there is still reading this old blog, then you are a faithful friend and family member. Thanks for your patience.
Imperfectly Wonderful World is back!
