We moved into our rental home four weeks ago yesterday.
The first week, the only the internet we had was the data plan on our phones…which quickly dried up, leaving us with no data until February 13th.
So, three weeks I ordered our internet.
Somehow we got overlooked and our internet services were pushed back to February 1st. Which wasn’t good for Dan’s math class, when all the assignments were online…so, he did his homework in the LDS Institute parking lot until we got our internet hooked up. Thank goodness for the LDS meetinghouse internet!!
Like most things in life, there are some bumps in the road. After several visits from the Internet Service Man to our home…we are now ROLLING in the high speed super highway of information.
We love Columbia and our cozy cottage here.
Dan goes to school less than two miles away and has had plans to ride his bike.
The weather has been in the upper teens and low twenties and I’d rather he drive until things warm up here.
Although we are living right in the center of town – close enough to our neighbors to hear their house party music (TWO GROWN, in their forties, WOMEN no less) in the morning? – I still consider my life rural.
Here is why – there is no dishwasher – I’m the dishwasher. Just like women on the frontier, I spend half my day washing things by hand.
In that respect, it’s still a country life for me.
In other news, I live a few blocks from the city library, which means I’m in literature heaven.
Happy Snow Day folks. My husband’s classes were canceled for the day, so we get to be a whole family ALL day long.
YIP YIP YIPPIE!!
