For Fun Monday

I'm back!!

Thanks to Missy and the other girls for covering for me while I was in Internet Interruption mode. It was a crazy 2-3 weeks without any service. Hmm...It was different.
What about just a few years ago when we didn't even have internet? Okay, I know it's been more than a few, but still.
But the family made it through and Facebook didn't shut down because we didn't sign on, so I guess life is good.
So, since I was last here I've been on vacay, my son turned a year older, David Crowder was in the ATL for a concert, New Moon came out, Thanksgiving came and went. Ooh...lots of stuff happening.
The F.A.I.T.H. girls had a lot of great posts. I've been reading back trying to play catch up.

So all this brings me to our question for this Monday. What is the one (or more if you're feeling it) modern convenience you COULD NOT live without? Or maybe you have a story of something you had to live without but couldn't wait for it to return. We'd love to hear your stories.

Just a side note. We were shopping and overheard this lady reading this plaque to her husband:
Loves me?
Loves me not?
It doesn't matter
I'm all he's got!

Ha!! We were laughing in the store.


  1. Cell phones!!! Didn't miss them when we didn't have them, but now that we've got them....look out, don't be without.

    Glad to see you back, Lindi.


  2. Dianna---I agree. What would we do without our phone? Have you ever turned and gone back home to get it because you realized you left it?
    I have. More than once.

  3. Hi Lindy,

    Welcome back!

    I could not stand to be without my laptop! Not FaceBook or even Outlook, but just the computer itself. It's what I do all my writing on!


  4. Contacts and glasses. I know spectacles have been around for a while, but with my prescription I wouldn't have been able to see with those. They didn't start making disposable lenses in my powers until last year. I NEED to see!!!

    Welcome back!

  5. I think I'm with Edwina on the laptop. I spend most of my waking hours on mine because it's both my work for my day job and my writing for myself. Getting the laptop revolutionized my work life. I would be ultra slow without it. Additionally, it brings the world to my fingertips through news, fun, people connections, and all the modern opportunities. I even got my new job because I had access to these things through my laptop. Mac all the way!


  6. I'd have to say DSL. I had dialup for a good while after others went to DSL, and now I can't believe how long I held out!

    Of course, the cell phone is a close second! I feel naked without it.

  7. Cell phone, without a doubt! We don't even have a home phone anymore...and nearly everyone's phone number is stored in my cell. I don't know what I'd do if I lost it!!!

  8. Over Thanksgiving weekend our hot water heater went out. It was also one of my baking weekends. I got very tired of heating the water on teh stove in big pots for washing dishes and baths. I was so happy when we got it fixed. I am sure there are other things I would miss more if they were gone, but the hot water is still very new to me.

  9. Edwina--yes, the lap top has been a source of joy for me, also. It makes life so much easier.
    And thanks for the welcome. It's good to be back.

  10. Jenn,
    I'm with you on the contacts and glasses. Especially the contacts. I get so dizzy wearing my glasses.

  11. Ang,

    It is amazing how much we can do wtih the lap top, isn't it? Like you said not only work, but keeping up with the news and what's going on. It's all at our finger tips.

  12. Missy,
    dial-up is miserable compared to the DSL isn't it? Even when the DSL is slow we tend to get impatient.

  13. Phyllis,
    I'm like you with the cell phone. If I lost it I couldn't even call my son. Isn't that terrible!!!

  14. Amy,
    Hot water. That's a good one. We don't know how lucky we are to have all these modern things at our fingertips. I'm glad yours is all better now.
    And I know you'll still be appreciating it for a while.
