A few people asked why we got rid of the internet...mainly we're trying to cut costs while we finish paying off Annabelle's medical bills(if you want to read more about that story you can click here). That being said tonight Scott and I had this conversation:
Me: "Did you know that if we canceled our internet for a year we'd save $600?"
Scott: "That's a lot."
Me: "yeah it is."
Scott: "You know, if we didn't eat for three months we'd save A LOT of money."
Me: "Scott, we'd die after a few days."
Scott: "Not having internet is death." (I think he was being sarcastic...he can sometimes be dramatic :))
So anyways, I thought I'd list some pro's and con's about not having internet in your home:
pros: Our house is cleaner! Not that it was ever terribly messy but now the dishes get cleaned right away and other chores are not procrastinated so much. And of course it's nice to save money. I'm sure there are more, but I can't think of them now.
cons: things are a little less convenient. I like to look up things like recipes and directions on the internet and now I'll have to plan ahead so that I can do that at the library when we go(which will probably be twice a week). Also, I won't be able to check blogs as much which is sad and doing my own blogs will be a little more inconvenient. I think that's it for now. It'll be interesting to see how long we can go without the internet at home :)
