I am completely frustrated. We decided to get out of the dark ages and get broadband (Yes, we still used dial-up), however since it was supposedly installed on Wednesday we have nothing. Broadband has not worked and no one seems to know why. I spent everyday calling at least once sometimes twice to the company. The customer service people are really nice, but I am sure they are sick of me. I will brag that I have kept my cool and been as Christ-Like as possible. I don't know how much longer I can maintain that attitude though :). We have now been told we will get another month of free service, but will have to wait until the 29th for a tech to come out and try to fix. So until then I will be using dial up to access the internet.

To update on our last week besides the above: Lillie is doing great on her allergy medicine - no more little old man coughs here! She is also doing great with her letters. She knows most of her letters by sight and has been becoming really interested in the sounds of each letter. I am trying to work with her when she shows interest and I am so impressed. Lillie can sound out quite a few letters. She is riding her bike like a mad woman now too. One day she just took off. She only has 2 more days of preschool left. I am excited, but sad because she has several good friends thru preschool and I know she will miss them.

Gracie is just nuts. She has been trying to pedal her trike just like Lillie. The only problem is that she can't reach the pedals when she turns. It is very cute to watch. Both girls are loving the new swing set and ask to go out and swing everyday, multiple times. Gracie is not sleeping too well though and that is tiring for me. She seems wake up several times a night and won't go back to sleep with out me coming in and holding her hand. It usually only takes a minute and she is back to sleep, but still getting up and down is wearing me down. Gracie is having a birthday on Monday. She will officially be two although if you ask she will say three. I can't believe how fast she has grown.

The girls and I are going to visit my brother in Louisville next weekend. All are pretty excited. Alex unfortunately has to work and can't come with us, but we are going to ride down with my parents.

I am sure I have given you plenty to read and will try to update my blog when I can, but it is a bit harder using the laptop and dial up because I fat finger the keys so much. Have a great memorial day weekend.


  1. You fat finger the keys?? OK! HAHA! THAT is my laugh of the day! Thanks! Missed you Wednesday!

  2. It must be something in the air...Ellie had been waking up at least once during the night and wanting to be held. She did that for almost two weeks straight...but thankfully has slept all the way thru the last two nights! It is exhausting! Good luck with your broadband!
