I had 3 straight days of no cell phone use. I was in Timbuktu, snuggled safely in our camper with 2-3 children at a time. My husband was out on the water, re-enacting A Perfect Storm ( you know, that movie with George Clooney?)My eldest boy sometimes braved the water with him, but other times joined his brother and sister and me. Under the covers, eating popcorn, all while watching Mama Mia and 3:10 to Yuma.
Yes. Everything in my life connects with a movie.
And, it was pretty wonderful. My husband and I talked. About stuff other than our kids. I heard my children’s laughter, and it seemed sweeter somehow. I noticed small things, that I tend to miss while connected to my tiny phone/computer.
And I want to keep with the spirit of that back here. Because I noticed, Pinterest got along just fine without me..so did Facebook…even Ms. B!! ( My blog. I give everything a name.) If you get a few diet cokes in me, I’ll tell you what I named the plants in our house.
So. Less is more is my new motto.
How do you all juggle all the Socialness (I totally made that word up, but I like it ) of our times? How do you strike the balance? Or is it just me that needs Timbuktu every now and again?
