I have quite a backlog of blog posts that I have been meaning to get to, but I have been putting them off because we had made the decision to splurge and get satellite internet. Well, when the tech came out today to get us hooked up, lo and behold, our beautiful grove of giant Douglas Fir trees is RIGHT IN THE WAY. In order to get a clear signal, we will have to pay an additional $400 for extra cable, and Matt will have to put a metal pole in the ground to mount the satellite dish, which by the way, already would cost us $300, not to mention the $60 monthly for service. Seriously, there has got to be a better option out there! Now I don't know if we are going to go through with it or not, but I am dreading the thought of being stuck with dial-up for very much longer, and neither DSL or Cable have made it this far out in the boondocks yet.
In the meantime, I will gather myself and hopefully get around to posting about the fact that we have now been married for 9 years, that we have eaten the first of our corn crop, had a delicious apple pie from our very own orchard, and what the kids have been up to. But not right now, first I have to go have a dial-up induced pity party.
