The past week has been tougher on me than last week, our TV free week. Because this week we had no internet. The broadband install did not occur as planned, leaving us with no way to connect from home. I was able to briefly check on the blog and email by going to the apartment office that has free wi-fi but I don’t really feel comfortable using public wi-fi.
I now realize I am quite dependent on the internet for a number of things:
–Communicating with others: I get school emails, updates about orders shipped etc. Without access to email, I am unable to find this out. I know I can use the computer at work, but my employer keeps tabs on all online activity so I try to avoid that.
–Researching anything from why my knee feels cramped up to helping kids with homework
–Checking on bank accounts
–Blogging on this site and checking on my favorite blogs.
–Printing directions to new areas.
–Keeping current on the news.
–Shopping for items.
I would really miss the internet terribly if it somehow got interrupted. I think I will pick up another solar charger that can charge the laptop in case of a power outage.
I apologize to the readers I have been a bit scarce this week, and have not been able to post regularly. Hopefully I will be back to my regular schedule next week.
