Can I live without the internet?

(My boys with the lone tv on an UNAUTHORIZED channel)

What happens when you don't have the internet?

Well I'll tell you...


We played more Monopoly around here.
I made dinner not once, not twice, but four times in a row... (all from scratch - no packaged meals)
I actually got caught up on my laundry...(well almost...I have dedicates to do...)
My boys fought less...
it was more serene
my hubby and I fought over his iPhone...
and I watched television (I forgot I liked the Duggars...and the boys don't mind too...since we have only one tele in the house.)

What happens when you don't have the internet? The flip side...

I wondered if the family adopting from Ethiopia had arrived and finally saw their daughter?
Were those little twin boys over at Mimi's finally well and how was the handyman coming?
What new food had Alicia posted?
Did Diva style finally get the rug color picked?
Did Splashing Glory put up her Sunday prayer request?
What about the girl with wicked style from Vegas and that flower arrangement?
What's happening on facebook?
How is Beth in NC doing on her weight? I know I've crashed and burned...

Questions!
The only way to get the answers was from the internet...

So I'm sooooo glad I'm back...

Have a great day.
Blessings!


Post script - yes of course I can live without the internet...but why would I want to?

I'm glad your back too!! I saw the same positive things from not being online for a while, but like you....I missed and wondered what my friends were up to!! I guess balance is key.

all things in moderation--including the internet!

Oh, I love you!!! Girl, I have started something new! I have lost 2.6 pounds so far this week. Woo hoo. Go to my profile and on the left column you'll see "find me on youtube" button and look at the last couple of posts. :o)

I would have missed you terribly -- though I agree. I can GET A LOT DONE without the Internet!!!!

Love & hugs!
Beth

I'm totally with you here. I can go all day without the internet (although sadly)... and even longer (with some withdrawals). But there is so much to look up and so many questions to ask. Just not the same. ;)

There is always a flip side :)
