I did something drastic yesterday.? I did not even look at my computer.? Seriously.? Yeah.? Drastic I know.? I didn’t read email, I didn’t check for comments, I didn’t read anyone else’s blogs.? And you know what?? It was nice.? Sure I was tempted, but I resisted.? Even when the trusty husband came into my office, sat down at the computer and left my site open when he walked away.? I turned around, close the window and kept working on my sewing project.
I’ve started to realize (ok, I figured it out months ago) that I need to step away from the computer more often.? I think it may be starting to rot my brain.? I go to sleep thinking of post titles.? Sick and wrong.? Sick. and. WRONG!
So Sunday morning I proclaimed to my family that we were going outside to do some fall clean-up.? The trusty husband, and possibly the boy, thought I was nuts.? It rained all day Sunday.? We all wore our rain jackets and got wet.? The boy and I splashed in some puddles.? I got my vegetable garden cleaned out (and found 3 more zucchini, much to my chagrin), I emptied all of my dead window boxes, and the trusty husband cleaned up the day lilies in the back yard.? We also took all the extra crap along side of our house to the dump.? No more redneck for us!? Sadly, I didn’t find a car.? I was hoping for a long lost Mazerati, but I only found spiders.
Will this techno-free day become a weekly occurrence?? Possibly.? Unfortunately it would mean thinning out the list of blogs to read because it took me close to an hour to read everyone’s stuff this morning.? So start being entertaining or I’ll axe you.
