We're Cancelling The Internet...But I'm Still Blogging

Hello friends!

We made it through the first three days of the week! Hang in there! I think I'm saying that more for myself than anything. I've been feeling a bit moody lately.

I wanted to also let you all know that we are cancelling our Internet and cable service starting the 10th. Which is tomorrow or today depending on when you're reading this.

We will probably eventually get it back. But as Daddy Rainmaker explains, cancelling the service puts us in a more leveraged position with not only our current Internet provider but all the other companies that provide it.

Seriously the price of Internet...they wanted to raise it by and additional $40 a month! By cancelling cable and Internet, our monthly bills will go down by $90 a month!!

Who do these Internet providers think they are, anyway?

King Tut?!?

I can just go down to the local library or ymca and get online for free.

Of course there will be some how the heck do I get pictures up now? And I can't just google a recipe whenever I feel like it. I can't check in on everyone whenever I feel like it...

But, I will perhaps get to bed we'll see how it goes.

Both Daddy Rainmaker and I may go through a little withdrawal because he uses the cable tv and I tend to go online...Hmm... we'll have to see if someone out there is willing to give us a smoking good deal.

So, I may not blog every day or as often, but I still intend on keeping up on my blog. The hope is to eventually get me a lap top and re-connect...but right now it's kind of like...

I mean...have you ever just gotten fed up with "the system" of things and wanted to fight back a little?

Yes. I think there is a little of that going on right now too.

And besides, the Packers did just win the Superbowl, so it's not like we need the ESPN channel now anymore? Right? Ha.!

Well, I can't seem to move out of the 7 to 8 pound loss range. Hm.... But I did get in a 2 1/2 mile run in subzero weather. I got in a 45 minute biceps and back work-out. I did NOT want to go to the gym, but I did anyway.

Oh, and I was about ready to fall asleep while "helping" our six year old with her reading lesson this morning. Seriously have you ever been so tired that you could just pass out on the spot?

Well, I was helping her and I figured that I could close my eyes while she was working on reading the sentence, because I knew what it was...and a few times the younger ones looked at me and asked, "Mom! Are you sleeping?"

So, I think that means I need more sleep.

So, off to bed I go, Hi, ho, hi, ho!!

Have a good one everyone!

  1. That's too bad about your bill going up so much, but good for you for fighting back. That is a huge increase and if that happened here, we certainly could not afford it. Keep up the good work with your lifestyle. You got a great run in and this 7-8 pound point will be a thing of the past before you know it. I'm glad you will still have the YMCA and the library to blog. I'll keep checking back from time to time. Us sunshine folks gotta stick together!

  2. I will look forward to haring from you when you get a chance to post about it!!!

    That is a crazy hike in price for internet. I would do the same thing too!

    I am still rooting for you!!!

  3. We've pitted internet providers against each other before too. Or canceled one service and signed up with the other service as a new customer. Pet peeve of mine is that new customers always get rewards and deals, but longtime customers get squat. And we've never missed our canceled cable either. Good luck with this!!!

    You're doing great, Sunshine Mama!

  4. Wow. I think that is past extreme to up a bill that much. Everything is getting out of control. Fingers crossed you find a great deal out there.

    Keep up the great work. You amaze me every time I read this.

  5. i couldn't live w/o internet. i can deal w/o tv, especially since we have netflix. but they are both pricier than i care to pay!
