All Systems Go!

We got our cable, phone, and internet services back Monday afternoon. I went to the local office to let them know, and it was up and running that afternoon! YAY! Thanks Charter for restoring it all. I do think we might get a basic phone line with AT&T so we can have phone service when the power goes out. I love how cheap Charter's phone package is, but it won't work without power. There wasn't a cell signal either for 3 days after Gustav. It's quite sad how accustomed I have become to all the technology we use on a daily basis. We did play board games as family and cards. I will try to continue my daily thrifty living tips starting tomorrow. I'm back and will try to update my blogs soon this week. Thanks again for all the great comments and emails. It was very nice to read them all. You guys rock!

Glad to hear your back and safe! I'm in KY and we had winds from Ike on Sunday so strong that the schools have been out all week! I can't imagine how much damage the south must have incurred.

We were out of power for 2 weeks after hurricane Wilma and I swear I had a breakdown after about day 2! I had to keep reminding myself that I would be ok without TV, phone and internet!!lol

You just don't know how much you miss these things until you don't have them. Appreciation goes a long way after trying times. In June we had a bad flood and our power was off for a couple of days. Not good. Me and my daughter did do some talking in which we never do any more. So that was good. Glad everyone is ok. Have a great night.
