Symptoms of Withdrawal

We were without internet access here for many hours, and I'm not going to lie, I started to shake a little bit when I thought about all the time I suddenly had free for cleaning.

Reading blogs versus scrubbing toilets: that's a hard transition to make, my friends.

Of course, St. Jude came through on his feast day, so all my panicked desperation was for naught, as is usually the case.

Now I can sit and scroll through the seven trillion items in my Google reader with a clear conscience since my floors are scrubbed and dinner is in the oven. I might even eat a mini Reese's peanut butter cup or four.

I got so much done, maybe I should leave the internet more often. Shudder.

Nah, that can't possibly be the message in all this.


  1. I don't even want to think about how poorly I would handle such a situation. Glad to have you back. :)

  2. 5 Reeses.
    5 is a lucky number.

  3. I think Laura has the correct message in this situation.

  4. The Lord does work in mysterious ways :)

  5. How well I know that withdraw. When ours is temporarily out I feel as though I've lost one of my kids and should frantically go looking for it.


Go ahead and say it. You know you want to.
