Our cable Internet connection decided to go wonky last Monday, and was finally restored today. I can't tell you how thankful I am to have a stable Internet connection again. I tried limping along with dial-up but couldn't get Blogger to load for the life of me. It's a huge blessing to be able to load a web site in seconds, rather than click on a link, head out to the kitchen, make a sandwich, and come back to find the page is still loading.
I have lots of e-mail and blog posts to catch up on, and I'm eager to get back into the blogosphere this week.
Many thanks to Natasha, Alea, and Amy for holding my hand via Twitter over the past week!
