We're celebrating around here. We were five days without Internet, which let me tell you, was not a pretty sight. Not restful, not a nice break, not anything except torture. We missed our friends and conversations, our work, the challenges to our thinking and living, the moments caught by brilliant photography, the book reviews, writing our own blog posts, finding new music...can you see how we suffered?
At times we could sneak a peek at a blog or our e-mail in-box, but with a very slow, weak connection. Only a tease. Today, because I had nothing to lose, I called our Internet provider and threatened ending our need for their services. Wa-lah, by 5:00 we were back in the game. Yay!
So, how to catch up?
I think I'll just come out with it. Our new doctor has found that I'm battling a Lyme infection. Probably have been since the start. There are all kinds of other details, but the best of them is that she's pretty sure that the kids do not face this foe. I've started fighting it with a new protocol of stuff. The kids are fighting some things in new ways, too. We're glad for our new doctor. We're all off to a good start.
So there's plenty to cheer about. Even without the sun shining...although we could cheer even louder with it (which is another story).
