The Internet is a Miracle
Our neighbor's house was struck by lightning this past weekend and blew out our internet connection for 5 days (5!!!), so we've been finding ways to be productive without being online. We were still able to print shipping labels through tethering our cell phones, but cellular bandwidth is expensive so we had to limit ourselves.
We took advantage of good weather and went hiking on a mountain just five minutes from our house. Saw two black bears and realized we didn't know the right way to pass them! We also went on a tour of the famous Luray Caverns in our town. It's was fun being a tourist.
But early this morning the repair man finally arrived and fixed our connection. Suddenly having all-you-can-eat internet again was like an incredible gift. We forget how this technology has enabled us to live the luxurious life we have. It's been great to read everyone's comments and good to see you guys can help each other out without us.
Anyway, we've been having a great sales week. Everything comes in waves. Good to be back.
