No internet!

On Friday morning we left for Pennsylvania to visit my aunt, uncle, cousin and his fiancee. We were very surprised that the hotel we stayed at this weekend, despite advertising that it was wireless, only had wireless in the lobby and was wired in the room. Not a problem if you bring your laptop, but for my birthday my parents bought me an iPad, so I just took that with me, and it doesn't have an access for wired Internet! I know I could have gone to the lobby and used that wireless, or used my mom's laptop, but I was lazy and we weren't in the room that much because we were visiting, so I was WITHOUT INTERNET for the weekend! It was kind of a big deal, but luckily for a very short time. Now I'm home and can spend the entire rest of the day online. Ha. Although, to be perfectly honest, since I don't have anything pressing like classes to do online, it really wasn't that huge of a deal because I had other things and people to occupy my time. So tomorrow we'll be back to our regularly scheduled program of Traverse City vacation recounting. Hope you all had Internet-filled weekends!

Hey Mir..


Sorry I haven't been over to your blog in a really long time... I'll send you an email but wanted to let you know I'm here and thinking about you!

Hugs and love, Leese

I always feel so lost without the Internet or phone service... what did people do before this?!?!?!

Leesa - no worries, you've been really busy!

Monique - I feel the same way! I just don't know how anyone managed!

I don't need the phone and I can go days without calling anyone. But I need Internet! We go crazy when we have network issues at home.

That said, for short trips, I don't mind not checking my emails for a day or two. Feels good in a way.

My modem died last friday and I was in a panic until I could get a new setup on Saturday! Scary how wired we get.

Zhu - I think we're all entitled to throwing fits when the Internet goes out! It was strangely relaxing to have no pressure from the internet, but also stressful!

GYSC - I saw your post that you had lost Internet, and I was very upset for you! Glad you got it back!

at work we were discussing if we would give up the internet for one year in exchange for $1 million. No one said they could do it! would you?

I'd need a lot more than just $1 million! It's amazing how dependent we've become on the internet.
