closer to Amish than I had hoped.....

Today I am dreaming that I was not grounded from my internet....Yep!!! The last few days my internet has been so slow and when I called today to find out what was up they explained that I went over my usage for the month....:-(

So what this means is they are penalizing my for the next month...I don't get it either!! I even upgraded my plan and yet it won't kick in until the beginning of August. So, this month I have to be very careful on my usage so I don't go over again or it will take longer for it to start over in August.

I tried explaining to them that I have a blog now and people are depending on my. That I finally found something that I was sticking to. All my whinning was in vain.

So do you remember in one of my blogs I said that one of my goals was to go a week without electronics? I am closer than I hoped to be. Right now we have no dish - so we have 2.5 channels to watch on TV. Even though we live on top of a hill we get no cell service at our house. And now limited internet....

Rob's dream has always been to be Amish. He would rather us never have TV again and he doesn't know how to turn on the computer. He lives in the garden and gets up before the sun rises (and would be happy if the rest of his family did as well..) ...I just told him that I refuse to wear a dress and a bonnet!!!

FUN at the Wanless Home!!!

That's too funny I would love to see Rob in some Amish clothes you guys would look so cute! Be honestly the Amish know what they are doing you know how much money they save by not having any electronic?! They must just look at us and laugh at how much we waste.

I feel for you! I was at my dad's in Northern MN for 4 days last week without internet or cell service. I felt so discconnected! Hard to believe that I spent much of my time growing up in a cabin with no phone, electricity, or indoor plumbing. August will be here soon enough...
