So, for the last 48 hours, we've had no phone, internet, or cable. It was an exercise in entertainment oneself old-school style. We listened to a lot of music and the radio, and we went and joined the library, which we had been meaning to do anyway, but we were able to borrow a movie from there for last night and now we have access to Hoopla, which is cool.
But yes, no fun. On the bright side, no more gas in our house! And there are far worse things to be without than TV and Internet; it's important to remember that. Still, 2019 can hurry up and come along any time it wants.
