Leaping into the Present...

Yes, I have had dial up forever (9 years). Yes, I have been happy with it. Yes, I am one of the four people left on the face of this earth with dial up. Yes, I had been happy to only spend $10 per month on the internet. Yes, the whole world made fun of me. Yes, I was OK with that.

Then my internet provider (my previous employer) said they were no longer offerering dial-up (what??? why not???). I'd have to find a new provider, they said. Huh??

So here I am with high(er) speed internet from Sympatico. You can actually now call our house and not get a busy signal while we are on the computer. Our kids can now play webkinz at home.

OK, I'll admit that I had been thinking of getting high speed even before we moved. Breaking down and paying the higher fees. Secretly planning my switch. And I am loving my new wireless high(er) speed internet.

Yesterday morning I spent 45 minutes on Facebook. Time I should have spent unpacking those last boxes. Now tell me again what's so great about high speed? :)

PS: Now that I have high speed, I was all set to post some great pics. Guess what??? Now our digital camera is BROKEN. *sigh*

September 13, 1997.

11 years ago today a very beautiful bride married a handsome groom on a gorgeous, warm, sunny day. They promised to love, honour and cherish, for richer and poorer, in sickness and in health.
We're glad God gave them 10 years and 2 children together. We wish it had been longer.

Remembering today...

What a whirlwind!!

Haven't had much time to blog lately as our lives have been a virtual whirlwind of activity. I can't believe what we packed into a few weeks (and a million boxes!)

The wedding went very well and Dad and Menny are very happy.

Dad and Menny both moved out successfully.

We managed to pack all of our stuff and move successfully. We even unpacked most of our stuff already.

I finished my first week of school.

Now hopefully we settle into routine. I am really looking forward to a boring, routine-filled fall and winter!
