INTERNET.

I have the internet again. Turns out our cheap internet service, which is run via a direct-line-of-sight-satellite-dish thing, needs to not have trees grow taller along the perimeter of your house. It was a total bummer when the internet guy finally came (at 3:00 p.m.) and said everything was fine, we just needed to chop down some branches of our tree.

Don’t get me wrong. I couldn’t care less about trimming a tree. But then I had to wait for Gary to come home and cut down trees! Really though, I should be (and am!) grateful for a husband who not only knows how to safely chop down tall tree branches, but also happens to own both a super tall ladder and a… tree trimming chain saw.
{Not sure what those are actually called… chain saw on a stick?}

Several hours later, and ten minutes of hacking away at branches, I had internet again.
Seriously. Ten minutes. I’ve been ten minutes away from internet for a week. If only we had known!

I’m so happy. Not just for my kids and the TV… but for me. I stayed up past 1 a.m. last night blog hopping and pinning on Pinterest. I’ve had limited access to internet via my cheap 3G data plan on my phone and after a few days, my mom loaned me her iPad. (How fun are iPads?!) It’s not the same as being able to mindlessly browse the web, or working simultaneously on printables for the blog while googling for inspiration for other printables!

It’s like I found a long lost friend. Let’s catch up, interwebby buddy. We have so much to say and do!
The good news for you is that while I had some internet downtime, I had tons of brainstorming time. I have a new weekly series coming up (think LDS printables for older kids!), and lots of other fun posts in the works.
Now if you’ll excuse me. I have some random web browsing to do!

Question: what’s your favorite way to waste time on the internet?
