We arrived in Minnesota for our summer and discovered that we have no internet. Apparently Centurylink, our only real option, has a limited number of connections available and decided to give ours to someone else. While that seems almost bizarre to us, how a company can consider itself an internet provider and not have connections available, it is a hard stop for us. We continue to push, but they tell the same story over and over.
Now, not having internet in a place of fishing and hiking and outdoor beauty is certainly not a hardship in normal circumstances. But the thing that allows us to be here for so long is the fact that I can continue my work while the family enjoys a great summer vacation. So, with trips to the library (15 miles one way) and some time at the coffee shops, I hope to keep on schedule. And we are praying for a miracle to influence Centurylink!
If the posts are a little less regular and I am even slower in responding to emails, please understand.
And I really want to thank those of you who jump in to encourage and welcome the new commenters. Your kindness and love is so evident and so important!
I still have to approve comments from new commenters, btw, so it may take a couple of days for that to happen. Nothing I can do about that except to relax commenting rules and, trust me, based on some of the recent things I have blocked, you don’t want me to do that.
Maybe things will change soon. Pray with me! Thanks!
