We're Back

We finally have our Internet connected. I've been going crazy. It's amazing how much I rely on the Internet. In some ways, it has been nice to not have the temptation there to waste time surfing, but I have needed so much information this past month and a half that I usually always go online to find. For example:
  • What are the phone numbers/locations of essentials in our new town? (I whipped out the dusty yellow pages on many occasions)
  • What in the world do I do with these gigantic saggy sunflowers that are growing all over our yard?
  • What is our bank account balance?
  • How do I pay our online bills?
  • Where can I find cute lamp shades?
  • How do I know what is good brand of lawnmower/weed wacker?
  • What do I do about my baby's slight fever?
  • Which hospitals in the area will accept our insurance?
  • How can I get my online Babies R' Us, Robert's Crafts, and Hobby Lobby coupons?
  • What is the menu for a particular restaurant in our town?
  • What gym can we join that will have childcare, enabling us to work out together?
  • How can I change our mailing address with insurance companies, bank accounts, etc. without the web?
    It's official. I am completely addicted to and reliant on the Internet. I didn't realize how much I use it, and not just for the perks of email and blogging, but for really useful information. So, I am happy to be connected back to the world again. I hope to not waste too much time online though. I've really enjoyed having spare minutes to focus on setting up our house and get organized over the last month.


    1. We NEED cute Blake pictures posted soon--going through withdrawal. :)

    2. I can't even go a few days without the internet... Not even sure if I have the yellow pages.

      I think it can always be hard to leave your baby. The older Grant gets the cuter and more fun her gets....thus, I hate leaving him even more (and I work 3 nights a week...)

    3. Yeaa, you're back! I know what you mean-what did we do before the internet???
