I am posting from our new house. That's right, after two months, we finally have internet! We also have a phone number, which I'm going to have to memorize. But we don't have a phone to plug in yet; we haven't had a landline in about ten years. Hubby is going to stop at his dad's place on his way home and see if he has an extra phone lying around somewhere. Hubby pointed out that he wants the "old-fashioned" kind of phone; one that only plugs into the phone jack and not also into an electrical outlet...because if the power goes out, we wouldn't be able to use the one plugged into the outlet...and I just thought of this now: how in the world did we survive the past ten years without an old-fashioned landline??? Oh, that's right, we had cell phones. And we still do. I think we'll be able to deal with power outages just fine. Haha.

Anyway, I'm glad to finally have internet at the house. Driving to Hubby's dad's place to use his internet was getting old. The connection here is slow, since we're out in the middle of nowhere and the signal has to travel a long way. So that will take some getting used to. I've tested it out on Netflix, and I am able to watch streaming video, but I can't be on Facebook at the same time. And I can't surf other pages while a page is loading. Yes, I'm a multitasker, so this is annoying. But I'll learn to live with it, because I don't have any other option.

Well, I have to go plug in my laptop now, since I've pretty much drained it watching MacGyver. And I believe I hear Laundry calling my name...
