Escape From the Isolation Chamber

In a quick foray out of my current isolation chamber – I thought that I would give a speedy update.

We moved. The house is old, it has nice character, it just hasn’t been cleaned since, oh, 1953. We’ve got our work cut out for us. The nice thing (I can say this now – I didn’t see anything “nice” about it two weeks ago) is that we don’t own it and we don’t have to ever worry about selling it, so the work that needs done on it is not our problem. I think I may just enjoy renting after all!

The week after we moved we had no phone, no internet, Daniel’s car broke down so he took my van to work each day – therefore, no car, and the kids have been taking their turns in a sickness rotation. So far we have had coughs, fevers, vomiting, and Morgan’s term “lava poop”. Use your imaginations – she has a hand gesture to go along with the term. It’s now my new favorite way to describe diarrhea.

Currently, we have a phone, a vehicle, and are healthy, but alas, we apparently live too “rural” to get internet in any form beyond dial-up and I haven’t yet come to grips with this fact. They want to charge as much for dial-up as DSL and I just cannot do it. Daniel had mercy on me today and got me access to the internet so I could at least check e-mail and update the old blog through a dial-up connection. Alas, it’s hard to go back. We’ll post more later!
