Signal Lost

We don't have Internet at our house right now and we aren't going to for a couple more weeks.  I guess we are getting new phones in July, and they are WI-Fi hot spots or something, so we can just get the signal from the phone and use our laptops.  Way too technical for me.  But I have been struggling with not having Internet at my fingertips lately.  Like sometimes I feel like I could die.  That may be a little dramatic, but you get the point. 

However, not having Internet is good because I have gotten a lot done around the house.  We are 97% unpacked, just waiting on some bookshelves to put the boxes of books away.  And that's about the only pro of no connection.  The cons- I have to do all of my interneting at work, during my lunch hour, which is fine, but I don't get it all done!  I would love to go to the library and use their computers, but with an almost 3 year old (gasp, what?!) it's too hard to keep saying "sit still, Mommy is almost done, I promise."  Same goes for taking her to Panera or Starbucks to use their signal. 

So bear with me friends!  My Mom and Phil are coming this weekend and I think I can con them into hanging out with Molly while I go to the library and get caught up on everything. 

So needless to say, I am learning patience!

We had a great weekend.  Eric's parents rolled into town on Thursday night, tools in hand.  Eric and his Dad worked on the house all weekend, and his Mom worked too.  We also went on a curtain, drapes, blinds, any window coverings will do hunt!  Our windows are the most random windows out there.  So it looks like we are going to have to special order our window coverings.  So we will be doing one room at a time at this rate!  We have really long windows and wide ones.  So nothing fits.  And the bathroom and Molly's room are the only rooms with doors on them.  All the other rooms have doors, but we want to paint them first, which could be a while.  So I am praying my wonderful husband will just put the doors up this week and worry about painting them later.  My brother-in-law and niece came in for a quick visit on Friday, they left Saturday.  It was nice seeing them!

Don't worry we didn't work Eric's parents to the bone, well at least not every bone :) 

Last night my MIL and I walked Molly downtown to the cute little malt shop to get some ice-cream, and they had the village band playing in the town square, under the gazebo.  Could this town get any freaking cuter or like Gilmore Girls?!  Seriously!!  The band was good.  They had teenagers all the way through great grandparents playing in it.  Molly loved the music.  She danced and sang to all of it.  Some people thought she was cute, however some people seemed annoyed.  Oh well, she had fun! 

Then today my in-laws left and now it's back to the daily grind.  This Sunday we have as of now over 20 people getting baptized at church!  Now that we meet in the school, we can use their pool to do the baptisms.  So we are going to live feed the baptisms into the main service up on the big screen so everyone can see what is going on.  All of the kids are going to be in service during that time too.  This is a first for us.  But we think it's so important to have everyone, including the babies, be apart of this celebration.  So hopefully we can pull it off!! 

Okay, my lunch break is coming to an end!!  Have a great Monday!!

Oh I would hate to be without internet...but it does force you to get stuff done. I have been taking breaks from blogging once a week where I used to blog everyday. It has been nice. Spring cleaning is going well...since it is almost summer. LOL

That's a lot of baptisms!

Okay and that cell phone wifi talk left me going umm what? ha!!

Kristin said...

I was without internet one day and I felt like I was going to panic. LOL!! :D I hope you get it back soon!

That's wonderful about the baptisms! And about you being almost unpacked and settling into your new house.

Your town sounds so neat!

Going without the internet does allow you to get a lot done that's for sure! So it can be a good thing sometimes but I like to have that connection!

Sounds like you guys got a lot of work done on the house and lots of visitors!

Wow! Love all the baptisms! Our church meets in a school too! Except there is no pool. Not having the internet is no fun, but you're right...I bet you'll get tons of stuff done at home! :)

Sounds like fun, but crazy. I have moved many times so I know the feeling of buying curtains etc.. How are you feeling, probably pretty good now aren't you. I am so happy things are going so well for you and your little family (:
