For the last week or so the internet at the house has been hit or miss. It’ll work for five minutes then disconnect for half an hour. It made me crazy that as soon as I started to do something it would stop working. So so frustrating.

Let’s just say that you have no idea how often you use the internet to talk to friends, check the weather, buy stuff, or read email til it’s not there anymore.

Luckily my brother went with me yesterday to get a new router (cause he was the brains behind the “fix internet” mission cause I have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to computers), and he got it working again. Yay!


The last week has been pretty stressful for me too. There were family members with medical stuff going on, bad news from friends, just lots of tough stuff. There were definitely tears. Lots and lots of tears. But you know what? That’s okay. Tears are perfectly fine. Crying doesn’t make me weak. It makes me strong.

I’m definitely not one to let myself depend on others when I’m struggling. It’s hard to let go and admit that I can’t do it by myself. But at some point I have to learn to do it.
