Still Here!

Hey guys! I'm still here! Did you think I'd abandoned the blog?

Nope! Just abandoned the internet for a while. Funny story - Matt was doing yardwork one day, digging out some monkey grass, when he accidentally cut right through our cable line. Whoops! He ran in to check our devices but his worst fears were confirmed. Yep, in one fell swoop, we lost our cable tv and wireless internet. The earliest the cable company said they could come out was an eternal three weeks away. Just picture me trying to explain to Violet why her beloved iPad wasn't working. It might be a first-world problem, but you might as well cast her into a 17th century prison cell.

Fortunately we just scammed off our neighbors' wireless networks (with their permission, of course). It wasn't great, but it got us through Saturday morning cartoons in a pinch. Then one day this week, Matt turned on the tv just to see and lo and behold, it had spontaneously regenerated! I'm not sure how it happened, nor am I asking too many questions. I'm just glad we're back!

Things I learned during the Great Wireless Blackout of 2015: I don't actually watch that much tv. Yeah, it sucked not being able to lay in bed and zone out to some mindless cooking show while Matt was away on business for the week. And the iPad (including my school device) not working was a bummer. But thanks to our neighbors' networks, we survived without any lasting effects.

All that to say, it's way more convenient to have a working network. This laptop, for example, never quite figured out how to make the leap onto someone else's wireless, so it was a lame duck the entire time. Thanks, cable line, for fixing yourself!

This is how we felt when the wireless went out.
Actually, this is how Annie felt when I wouldn't let her hold my wine glass.
