Internet Troubles and I'm a Stupid American

Our internet went out yesterday. Very frustrating when this is your only contact home. It costs about $4 a minute to call home with the phone and I can skype for free. So, we went yesterday and today with no internet. At home, when our internet goes down, I reset the router. DO NOT DO THIS IN UKRAINE!!! It erases the router instead of resetting it, therefore it won't work ever again, lol. Once our super smart technology guy came and reprogrammed our router we are good to go. And guess what?! We now have WiFi too, lol. We actually had it the whole time and didn't know. They had told us it was broadband, so i was plugging us up...well, our connection is much faster unplugged! It is now 10:30 at night here and I haven't talked to the kiddos yet. I will update with visits with Patrick, pictures of Kiev and more fun stuff later. For now, we are well and alive in Kiev!!!


  1. So glad the internet troubles are fixed! I was talking with Suzy and your dad yesterday (Sunday) and we speculated that might be the case. We also thought that maybe you were having such a fabulous time that you were unable to blog. Hopefully you are having a fabulous time, but do keep blogging. It makes us feel somewhat connected to everything happening with you guys. Looking forward to more updates and pictures!

  2. I was wondering about you!!!! Glad you're well! and thanks for the tip on the router! I would have done the same thing! Can't wait to hear what you've been up to! :)

  3. How are your other kids doing? Haven't heard if htey are doing ok with grandparents or not ;)
