I’ve been using the phone as a hot spot and had already gone over my data limits when I was here last week. Then our billing cycle started over again so I’ve gone over again this week. Good grief . . Vince is going to cut off my phone if I don’t do better! 🙂
The internet at the house is now hooked up and I’m happy but . . it isn’t unlimited data like we’re used to so I’ll have to be careful about leaving things running when I don’t need them to be running.
I’ve been to Walmart at least once a day, twice most days. I went this morning while Vince was waiting for the internet guy. There were things I didn’t get so Vince is going out this afternoon and he’ll pick up some of the things we need.
When we left Texas earlier this week, after working so hard to pack, I was thinking we’d sit here in MO, knit and not have much to do but I was wrong!
I’ve been hearing and reading that Dr. Pepper is in short supply but everywhere I’ve been (which seems to have been most every store in Joplin!) there’s plenty of it. The one thing that cannot be found is canning jars! We use jars for glasses because I use them for storing leftovers and for canning so using them for glasses makes sense – nothing else to keep in the cabinet. I forgot to bring any with us for glasses and there doesn’t seem to be a jar of any size anywhere in this part of MO. We stopped at every farm supply store on our way to Nevada yesterday and they laugh at us when we ask – kinda like asking for a freezer! I ended up buying real glasses at Walmart today so I’ll leave whatever jars are to be found for whomever needs them for canning.
Otherwise, everything is going fine.
