I am not addicted to the internet! I am not addicted to the internet!
Yesterday I drove most of the day to get home. There were quite a few tears and I always have to be careul how I say it because Vince will think I’m not happy to be home with him, and I am, but there’s a big chunk of my heart in Missouri. I always come back to Texas wanting to move to MO, but after a few days, I’ll get over it . . I hope. As Addie gets older, it’s harder to leave her but, if grandkids are anything like kids, by the time she’s a teen, I may wish we were farther away!
I may have called a realtor and casually mentioned that a vacation home in MO would be nice! 🙂
Anyway, while driving home, I was mostly cut off from the world . . I don’t check my emails much via the cell phone.
As soon as I got home, and we got the car unpacked, I was ready to sit and catch up on Ravelry, emails, facebook and the like. Vince turned the TV on. There was a show we wanted to watch . . some kind of news special on The Blaze from earlier in the week that he had waited to watch with me. About the same time he turned the TV on, I had booted up my computer and we both said “Oh heck . . no internet!” It was off all night and came back on just now . . about 9 a.m.
Without internet, we have no cell phones (we can text but can’t send any pictures), no home phone (Magic Jack), no TV since all we have is The Blaze and Netflix. Yes, we were in bed by 9 p.m.
Today I will spend getting caught up on things around here. Bread is already rising. Eggs are boiling for chicken salad for lunch. A chicken is seasoned for roasting tonight. I’ve been wanting roasted chicken and dressing and don’t laugh, but I like Stove Top just fine so that’s what we’re having tonight .. roasted chicken, dressing, cranberry sauce, green beans and rolls.
It’s good to be home . . I guess. I can say that it’s good to be off the road. That’s such a long trip for a country girl to make alone . . especially driving through Tulsa and Oklahoma City. I do not like cities and I do not like traffic!
