It's not TEOTW afterall

That was the first thought that popped in my head the day after the great DSL loss fiasco. We've lowered our phone bill by $30 by dropping it and using limited dial-up, I've kept busy anyway with homeschool and canning (that will be a MASSIVE post in and of itself).

Today is a reflection on life without steady internet...it's amazing, it goes on...wow! After having the net for so long, I thought I would have a major withdrawal period, not so. I went right on with life, even found that I actually had more time on my hands to get busy with the important things without this little distraction. True, I could not research things like I was used to or even keep up with news like I was accustomed, but I got by quite well. I even scored some serious goodies for FREE by just being out and about in our little town. A feat I attempted in order to keep the screamers happy and myself sane.

At any rate, things are semi-back to normal around here. The limited connection will keep me in the happy with some access and keep me happy with free time too. I still have a lot to do after all and well the net just doesn't get the dishes done!

I feel exactly the same way about TV, where I live now, it's impossible to pick up anything with rabbit ears, you have to get satellite, I REFUSE to pay for TV, it's such a time waster, I do get my TV fix in but it's no more than once a week, when I do laundry at my neighbor's house. I find myself watching it all day over there, so I know if I had it at my house, I would spend way too much time watching... honestly, I don't even miss it, now my internet, that is a different story! It's our entertainment, our only source of communication and I do make a tiny bit of money on line, plus all the information I am able to glean...

Glad you were able to live without the constant connection... :)

It's rough, don't get me wrong, but I'm muddling through!

I think of it as a form of prepping, lol.
