I have not fallen off the face of the planet

I have not drowned in flooding from Fey, Gustav, or Hannah. I have not taken a vow of silence. I have not even fallen in a big black hole where no one can find me, unless you are my cellular provider, internet provider, or any other service provider that I need. To all of them, my brand new home which was the first to be built and occupied on a brand new street is located in a big black hole where nothing works and no one even knows where it is. I had to finally bring my laptop to Panera to see what's going on in the world.

Needless to say, I still do not have internet service at my house. It's now hooked up, but there's no service turned on in the big black hole. So we continue to wait. I also have a new cell phone because my really cool one didn't have a strong enough antennae. Why is it that the phone with the best reception is the dorkiest base model EVER? I would go back and see if I can switch it out for something cooler but I have to take Mr. at Home with me because I'm not an "authorized user" on the account.

So that was my week. Move, deal with nincompoops at various service companies before they'd let me talk to the people who know what they're doing, move some more, pack, unpack, organize, clean, and do it all over again each day. I am SO GLAD this week is over and I promise to never move again if there is ANY POSSIBLE WAY to avoid it.

Aside from the moving drama, I l.o.v.e. our new house. It's beautiful, awesome, and has the coolest appliances on the face of the earth. The girls and hubby have been amazing with helping to trot hither and yon to get everything moved out and cleaned by our deadline.

Hopefully, the internets will be up and working in the new house sometime this week and I'll get caught up with life and do more than just dig my way out from under my inbox. Don't worry, I'll post pics and stories, including how I know that my oldest is going to be an interior designer one day.

Sorry you get to "enjoy" how yucky moving is. But I'm glad this week is over. It will be great to be settled.

I suppose now wouldn't be the time to mention that it took the cable company a YEAR to "find" our house for internet service (they found us right for cable TV, go figure) when we moved into our Frederick house (new construction, and we were at END of the building phase, not the beginning). Fingers crossed that you have better luck.

Glad to know you are okay! Great to see you today at Church. I hope your internet gets going soon!
