I would like to say sorry to all my blogging pals for my presumed absence. I do have a good excuse!
There I was, merrily surfing the web for maps of Christian’s journey (in John Bunyan’s classic Pilgrim’s Progress). I saw the latest movie and was wowed. I have plans to go over the map and discuss Christian’s journey with the kids in our Bible study, when BLAMMO- no Internet. 😮 noooooo!
I spent the better part of yesterday troubleshooting, to no avail. Looks like I burned out another modem. I have DSL and need a gateway modem, but we drive that thing into the ground because we are 6 people in the family and are always doing things online.
Well, the hubs and I decided we’ve had enough of DSL (“high speed” DSL is 3Mbps) and are going to get cable Internet service. We got the “barebones” service of 10mbps!!!! Holy cow! No more downloading problems! No more hollering for the kids to quit watching GodTube videos while I load videos and websites for my job!
The downside is that we are out of Internet for THREE days. *whimpers* I’m on an official vacation from my work, looks like. It’s giving me time to learn about wiring coaxial cable through the walls! But it’s been really tough to be without the Net, especially hard to check email.
I have been using my iPhone to check the important email accounts and keep updated on Facebook. I have your blog feeds on a very cool app, so I know what you’ve been posting. But I must remain silent because no matter how hard I try, the commenting format does not work well on the tiny iPhone screen. I just can’t seem to make my fingers find the right buttonss on this little bitty 2-inch screen. So i have had to be silent. Do you know how hard that is? It’s like watching a great ball game through a thick window, unable to cheer or comfort or joke around.
The cable guy is expected here tomorrow. He better be here on time or I’ll go bananas! And when I finally have that blazing fast Internet speed, I’llbetypinglikeamaniacacrosstheweb!
So sorry, I don’t mean to ignore ya. I’m reading your comments and posts, I just can’t respond….
