Am I only as good as my Internet Connection?

September 21, 2019

Am I only as good as my internet connection?  Living on a boat, our internet connection varies from tide to tide, to how much moisture is on the line, to who knows what.  Right now; and this is why I'm writing this; our connection is as good as it gets.  Yesterday and for the last few days it was not.  I was frustrated.  I got a headache.  I spent an hour trying to print out a label to send a Kit to Simon in the UK.  Finally, I got it to s-l-o-w-l-y work and was successful.  Simon, thank you for your order!  You should have your Kit in a few days!

 

I should have just gone sailpaddling!  I love paddle boarding in the calm waters by the rocks, seeing the fish swim around under me.  It's like floating on top of a fish tank, but only better.  Very cathartic!  I highly recommend it!

 

So to answer the question, sometimes, Yes!  I  am only as good as my internet connection.  When it's working, I can get so much computer stuff done.  And Alexa is running nicely, so I can blast Neil Diamond until the kids get tired of it and yell, "Alexa, play ..." 

I don't know, "Red, Red Wine,"  just takes me to a very sweet place.  

 

But my internet connection does not define me.  Not even my love for Neil Diamond defines me.  I think what I have found in these last few weeks as some of my kids have started traditional schooling is that real connections with real people count.  All I can say is thank you to whoever listened to my woes of the first month of school!  I love my tribe!  Some of you are new and some (like my husband and kids) have been around for quite a long time.  But, all of you have been such a blessing!

 

So let's lift a glass!

To friendships! 

To strangers (potential friends)

To real, good, Connections!
