An entire week without internet.
An internet fast.
I wish I could say I lost a few pounds but alas, I continued to eat during my fast.
Two back-to-back trips meant I was gone from home for eight days.
The first trip was so spontaneous that I didn’t have time to prepare any blog posts and thought I would write when I arrived at our destination.
Spontaneity with a family of six is really an oxymoron.
But we pulled it off and I was sure I would just keep blogging when we got out of the car.
Only to find no internet.
Except on my phone. I’m a creative problem solver and a bit of techno-nerd but I cannot write a blog post on the keyboard of my phone.
Nor can I answer emails other than a few short words on my phone.
I’m an old-fashioned typist – shocking but true!
We’re all fine, fine, fine!
Really, it was a lovely break. All the typing and emailing and reading on the computer screen can be exhausting. I think everyone should try to take an internet break a time or two.
Being tethered to the internet and the wondrous wireless world is great but I still like being with people and have conversation while we make eye contact with each other and aren’t multi-tasking with our laptops and cell phones and other amazing electronic gadgets.
I’ll share some highlights in the coming days. Oh, the fun stories I have to tell of the Humpfreeze family travels.
What’s the longest you’ve gone without internet in recent years?
