It’s no secret that Greg and I have been looking for a small farm to live out the rest of our years but a real question came into play today when the harsh reality of no internet showed it’s ugly face.
We took a second look at the house that we are interested in and Verizon FIOS actually has fiberoptic set up on our property (with a sign) but when we call them they say they don’t service the area but they do service the government building right next to the house.
It looks like it will not be easy to get internet at the house so the reality of no internet has come up and I will not say that I’m happy about it I can say that I do see some positive and I will list those below:
Quality Time with Hubby: I feel like I don’t always give enough attention to my husband because of the internet and everything I try to juggle so I feel like this could actually be a plus for my marriage.
Enjoy Nature: If you are going to have a farm I think you should enjoy the process and not have your fingers stuck on a keyboard. What’s the point of having animals and several acres if you don’t use and appreciate them?!?!
Take Time to Appreciate the Simple Things: Like I’ve already said, there is no point in having a farm if you don’t….farm. I spent some time today taking pictures and appreciating the simple things in life and it felt great. We are so busy with all these stupid gadgets that we sometimes forget about what’s beautiful and pure.
There Will Be Plenty of Projects to Work On: If we get this property you will understand better but let me just say that this property needs A LOT of work done. I’m ready for it and actually really excited about the things that we are planning so we will keep our fingers crossed and see what happens.
