O Happy Day

Here's proof of what we've been suffering. It was finally fixed Wednesday afternoon. And there was great rejoicing.

It's crazy how life stops without the internet. How did I ever live before the days of Facebook, email, online shopping, YouTube, online reviews, blogging, Google, online news, and Wikipedia? I have felt completely disconnected from everything. I've been calling my family all month to look up recipes or start times of Olympic events (more on that tomorrow). But now life can start getting back to normal, because, por fin, we have the internet at home. Heck, I turned down watching the Olympics so that I could spend hours on Google Reader catching up on everyone!

In other news: We made an offer on a house. We'll see what happens...the last one didn't pan out, so cross your fingers

AC + internet + house = happiness

YEAH! Have you been sleeping in your skivies...looks like Hattie didn't want clothes on in the heat. 90 degrees....thats did we ever survive without AC? And the internet...I totally agree! I feel so disconnected with civilization even when I don't have it for a few days! Hope things work out with the house!

I know what you mean about missing the internet. I left home on August 3rd and just got back home today, August 16. (Steve and I flew in our single engine plane about 10 miles north of Lubbock about 2:00 p.m. on the way home). My mother doesn't have internet and when I am away from "my favorites" I can't remember everyone's blog site address, so I was so looking forward to catching up when we got home. Then Steve says he can't get the computer to connect to the internet! What! I have been without the internet for 11 days. I can't stand it! But, as you can see, he finally got it to work, thank goodness, for my sanity has returned. Love your read.

PS. We also landed at the Spanish Fork airport on Monday afternoon and I saw your former humble abode from the air as we landed. Good luck on the home purchase. I will be praying for you.

Oh, that kind of heat is terrible! We're back in Provo for Reed to finish school and for the better part of the summer we had just a swamp cooler. I would just die when the house would get over 80 degrees. It feels terrible! We have AC in one room now, which is great b/c we're expecting a baby next week. I'm so glad you're family is feeling a bit cooler, too. =)
