About Me


Technical difficulties left us without internet for a few days. Naturally the kids complained, and I was all, “When I was your age, we didn’t have the internet at all.”

Cue feeling old.

I think my family got online around ’98 when I was 10, with dial up over the phone lines so no one could make or receive any calls while it was connected, which severely limited how much time we spent on the internet. Kind of crazy thinking back to how much the world has changed since then.

Anyway, it was kind of a spontaneous vacation. Got pancakes at IHOP, went to a craft store in person, spent time at our local indoor swimming pool, and roasted coffee beans over charcoal briquettes to see how it would taste, despite there still being snow on the ground.

Now here I am, not doing anything particularly useful because the internet is back. I question everything.

Sorry about not updating The Scions on Monday, but I didn’t get it set up before the technical difficulties started. With everything as it is, I figure that I can resume next week.

  1. My family got online around the same time as yours, and it always seems to break my 8 year old’s brain that there was a time without devices and the Internet. Kind of funny, but definitely makes me feel the years. I don’t know how we would survive without getting online, but it sounds like your family found some fun stuff to do.

    1. I felt like I had to keep everyone busy to keep them from getting too anxious, lol. I try to keep my kids’ activities balanced so they don’t get too much screen time, but the idea of the internet not being there at all was a different ballpark for them.
