11 Days Without Email

23-July 2009
So even after calling about two days after arrival to a local cable internet company, their first available appointment was nine days later.

Try going 11 days without email. And TV, for that matter, since we just got a TV hookup today. It is challenging. I think maybe our priorities might have been a bit out of whack, as first we found furniture, kitchen items, sheets, etc, and I clearly would have been happy ordering food out and sitting on the floor and sleeping on an unmade bed so long as I had my technology. There are a few internet cafes in our neighborhood, but picture doing that with a two-year old. It went something like this: “mama, daddy took my ticket. Daddy its MY ticket. It’s my very OWN ticket. Do not take MY ticket.” (Repeat for about one half hour to forty five minutes.)

So anyway, I am back in the technology world, we’ve Skyped a couple times today (SO much fun!) and even sent a few emails. Hope all is well with everyone out there.
