a kink in the plans

Posted in Uncategorized on June 29, 2008 by depechemom

One of the things we didn’t expect to face when we moved here, was a lack of high speed internet.  We are back to the old time days of dial-up.  If you know J, then you know this is a HUGE sacrifice for him.  Of course he can still hop online at the hospital, but he doesn’t get much dedicated reading time there.  The kids have no concept of what this means for their computer time as they were quite spoiled with our lightning fast DSL. I’m trying to remember all the silly tricks like typing everything offline then going online to send stuff.  

 

This week should bring a nice summer rhythm to our lives-no travel, no all night work schedule.  Just unpacking, organizing, and outdoor exploration.  

 

I’ll try to get some pictures of our beach trip loaded soon, but I have no idea how long it will take for them to upload.  This will surely be a test of patience for all of us!  There are so many cute tidbits I’ve wanted to share but couldn’t, and now I can’t remember any of them.  I’m going to have to start writing things down…

Still alive!

Just in case you’re wondering, I’m am indeed still alive.  Unfortunately, however, we do not internet access at home right now.  I’ve found a cute little store with free wifi and I’ve spent the last hour or so updating all our accounts and paying bills.  The kids are about to climb the walls, so I can’t take much more time.  

 

We love our new home, though I’m still unpacking boxes.  J is on nights this week which only further complicates things.  The kids are enjoying the huge deck out back and the lovely yard.  Evenings here in VA are still cool and breezy which makes the setting that much better.  We’ve had rain storms the last few evenings so the yard and trees are luscious and green.

 

Hopefully it won’t be too much longer until we have consistent internet service.  Until then…

June already??

Wow, May went by in a flash!  We have officially moved out of our old place.  I drove by there today to pick up the hose we left behind, and it was weird being there, but not living there.  We are living out of boxes, taking out as little as possible.  We don’t have internet access at the interim house-so I may post here and there when we make a run to a coffee shop.  Next week we’re off to the beach in FL with my parents, my siblings, and all of their kids.  Should be a great time!

 

Until next time, whenever that may be…
