Traveling

Well, B and I are headed up to the farm for a total of about 2 days I think. Driving the 7 hours there tonight (Tuesday) and coming back Thursday evening. So, I'll be officially off of the internet for 48 hours or so. I still find it interesting how integral it seems the internet has become in life. Cell phones as well. I'm pretty used to not having cell phones since we don't have service at our house, but at least at the house we have a land line. We have nothing up at the farm. I used to love to go up there for my 2 month summer break and get away from it all. It is really quite freeing (although, I'd always come back to a gazillion emails and it would take a week or so to get through them all...). At the same time though, I often wonder when I became so attached to the internet...having to check my email, needing to see what people were up to. It was so much easier when I was little and there was no internet. Nowadays we expect quick answers because there are ways to get them, when sometimes, I just want to take things slow...

I'm not really looking forward to this trip. It is likely the last trip we will make before the farm sells (or, we are hoping it is...). The trips are rough on us...14-16 hours of driving in a short amount of time, sleeping in the truck, the cold weather we will be facing, and having to get through a ginormous amount of stuff in the short time we have. It will be non-stop work the entire time we are there. It is also difficult for me because of all the memories that seem to overtake me whenever I am up there.

The farm issue has been weighing on my mind heavily the last few weeks, and I'll talk more about it when I get back from the trip. For now, we are hoping for a safe journey and no rain. I'd love to hope for warm weather, but I don't want to overdo it. Have a good few days and I'll be back blogging by Saturday I hope!

Good luck! Have a fun (well, it sounds like a lot of work, but as fun as it can be!) trip.

Have a safe trip. Send the rain my way. We need it badly!

Have a safe trip. I remember when my brother first told me about the Internet. He is a computer guru, even as a kid. He said, "One day, there will be a computer in every home and the Internet will be the focal point." I thought he was nuts. I listen to him a little more closely now. Lol. It is a scary thing, how technology has changed us so quickly.

I read on SITS that you came back with a fever. I'm sorry. Sounds like it was probably a hard trip all around.

Hey Sitsa! :)
You were ahead of me at roll call.
I hope you're doing better and the fever is not too hard on you!
How did the trip go?

Hope you're feeling better.

It struck me the other day that if I had to choose between having TV or having the Internet, it would be the Internet. It's a miracle invention. There's so much you can do and learn.
