Those of you who've been around here a while know I like to take a break now and then. Not only have I not had a blog break since just after Christmas, I've been writing something almost every day. Yes, a break is definitely in order for me.
A couple of months ago I closed my Facebook account and I haven't regretted my decision once. I'm NOT closing down the blog -- I have no intention of doing that at all -- but I need a real and true respite from the computer and internet. Shane, on the other hand, doesn't spend a lot of time online, but gets frustrated daily with the quirkiness that is either our internet provider or maybe just our computer. So, after a long discussion (yeah, it took all of half a minute), we've decided to unplug the computer for a couple of weeks.
I know from the past, when our computer has been on the fritz, that it seemed like a pain in the butt at first, until I realized how much I was getting done around the house and how much I liked doing some things the "old ways", like looking for recipes in old-fashioned paper-and-ink cookbooks or visiting a friend face-to-face instead of via email.
I might post something in the morning, and I'll write my weekly (and last, I think) grocery spending update tomorrow night. Then, I'll be turning the computer off and unplugging it and hiding the the modem in the basement or using the monitor as a centerpiece in the kitchen or whatever else it takes to stay offline for two full weeks.
But I will be back. I promise.
