I've Fallen...

...off the internet scene. Since we moved to Old Sweetwater I upgraded to the HTC EVO smartphone. It does everything and is very entertaining...provided you're in a good 3G or 4G spot. We're not. Part of our retirement Mission Statement is to live as debt-free as possible, so no cable or internet; besides the *smart* phone would provide internet. Right? Right.

Anyway, until we either get a interior amplifier or I figure out phone posting, I'll be sporatic. I'll visit my sweet bloggy firends when I can. I miss you.

Rita said...

Hey girl, I've missed you. I figured you were busy moving and unpacking. Hope you get the internet thing back up and running!

Dolores said...

Well, for goodness sake; I was afraid you were sick. Sorry to hear about the lack of internet service. How frustrating!
I've missed your lovely post.
Hoping an interior amplifier will fix the problem.
Hugs,

Janean- I am proud of you for being debt & internet free...there are hard choices to make when we simplify our lives, aren't there? I am not quite there yet-but getting close! Hugs- Diana

I miss you too! What about the library? Would a weekly visit to the library and a half hour on their computers get you back? I hope so!

SueWis said...

I'm sorry to hear you are in a bad reception area for your Evo. I got an Evo this past December and use it as a hot spot for my laptop internet. It works great and we live out in the middle of nowhere. Hope the Sprint service catches up with you soon!

Miss your posts! The cost of technology is way too much--I'm looking forward to retirement, but am looking for ways to use the internet to help supplement it! Hope you are back soon!

My friend, like all your female bloggers, I will miss your postings too! Patricia Shires, a noted author, shares her experience of moving from the busy city limits to the country :D She struggled with getting an internet signal. DSL - one day she had access and the next day, well, a different story. She mentions how her neighbor, who lived across "the way”, was positioned on a hill and this neighbor had access to fast internet service. And now, they are very good friends but not just because of good access, she discovered after an invite that the two of them had so much in common. You would like her story. As one of your blogger buddies, I will wait patiently to hear from you ~ bug hugs!!!

We miss you, Janean!!

Beverly @ My Sew Sweet Studio said...

You will be missed Janean. I haven't been here often lately, but I could always count on something fun and interesting. I will still check in on you often hoping to see what's going on at Old Sweetwater. I understand about the retirement thing. Event though we aren't retired we cut back when we made our move in December with that in mind.

Nancy said...

Sorry about your problem. I always look forward to your lovely pictures and comments. I'll keep looking for you. Blessings.

I hope you're back on the blogging scene soon. It's good to know this about the smart phone. We were just talking about getting one today. However, I'm not too tech savvy either.
