Yes, that is what it cost us to have an internet connection out here in the sticks.
$6 a day.
Really Verizon? I mean. . .::sound of screaming::. . .180 dollars?
And it isn't as tho' it is a luxury as we first thought when we moved here. You know, a treat, just to have to listen to music or blog. We do so much on the internet including, but not limited to, finding a new home and all the mortgage paperwork. We find homes faster than our realtor and although the mortgage paperwork is done, they seem to always want more. So. . .
It is a necessity for now.
Unfortunately we can't bundle a package with Dish Network and get a less expensive connection [oh, and cable] because that requires a contract and we aren't going to be here that long. And they won't allow us to transfer when we do move.
Mind you, I am not complaining. We are very fortunate that we can even get internet out here and we can afford it.
But $180 is almost double what the initial package of internet/cable/phone cost in our old home.
That amount is my household budget [groceries, cleaning products, etc.] for two weeks. That is gas for Ozcarz for Steven to take him to work for 10 days.
I have promised myself that there are two things I absolutely refuse to have in our new home and the first is natural gas. That is an whole 'nother story, but Washington Gas is the only provider in this part of Virginia and the company is criminal. I won't deal with them.
And, of course, Verizon. Even if they were the only game in town where we are moving to I will go without and just use the free wi fi at the coffee shop or the library.
Okay Tadpoles. Another Saturday has dawned
Thanks for lifting my spirits and keeping them high. I truly appreciate it.
Hope y'all have a great weekend and we'll see ya' on the flipside. xo Janine
