We finally have internet at home. When we moved to Twin Falls, last July, I didn't sign up for internet knowing that we would hopefully be moving in the near future and didn't want the hassle of if we might have to change providers. Plus, when I was looking the prices were outrageous-- $50-70.
Jeremy and I both have iPhones and figured we could access most of what we needed from them. This was true, but after so many months of working on such a small screen and having to deal with mobile sites instead of full sites it is so wonderful to be on a large computer screen and typing on a real keyboard. The one thing I miss from my typing on my phone is autocorrect. On the computer it just underlines words with a red line instead of fixing it for me.
This way too long period without internet just serves as a reminder that sometimes there are things I take for granted and forget just how wonderful and convenient they are. On the flip side it has also shown me that I can mostly be technology free and life still continues (although less conveniently).
