Movin on up

Chris and I have moved up in the technology world. This past week we got rid of our dial up which I hated so much it made me want to throw my computer out the window at times. We got rid of our dial up and land line (since we both have cell phones now) and were looking around for high speed deals when Chris got a bright idea. Our landlords (who live upstairs) have wireless and we talked with them to see if we could share with them. Of course they said yes. Chris went out and bought a router for our computer and VOILA! I can now surf the internet and download things like a normal person. No more waiting 8 days for pictures do upload and no more waiting while it dials and connects everytime we want to go online. We will split the cost with them, and since they just switched to Verizon wireless it is only 19.99 for the first year. Sweet!! Wireless internet for only 10 bucks a month. I'm as happy as a pig in a mud puddle.

So do we get to see a picture of you being a pig playing in a mud puddle? Just wondering now that you can download the picture quicker...

Congratulations!!! My husband is a highspeed wireless internet provider so I know of the elation that comes to people when they make the switch! :) I am very happy for you guys! Now, does this mean more posts . . .

PS I am so glad that your foot is feeling better . . . for the most part. I hope that you get completely recovered soon!
