Argh – I have been offline intermittently for the past 2 weeks. My family and I are in South Haven Michigan on Lake Michigan for several weeks. Until this summer we had only dial-up Internet, which was simply torture. Although we are on the lakefront and near a good size community, our immediate area is very rural. It takes 10 minutes off the main road onto a windy dirt road to get all the way out to us.
In years past we had no phone machine, no fax machine and minimal connectivity, because of my work now, I do need to be more connected. We took a radical move this summer (and let me tell you it was not easy to do) and got an Internet Satellite. Problem is we are subject to the whims of Mother Nature regarding affect on our ability to connect with the satellite. It is very frustrating, as I have had so much to share with you.
First, I had a birthday, which is always somewhat mixed for me. They are celebrations but are also a reminder of each passing year. I think most would agree that once you have children the years are marked more readily and clearly. Something about how did I go from 25 to 40? Certainly a mixed bag.
We also got a puppy, which I will tell you more about on Wednesday. For starters though, puppies are an awful lot like newborn babies. Enjoy your day!
