Oh ho, my friends, I am plugged in! Miss me?
Apparently, my brother had to bring my computer back from the dead. I kid you not when I say that he is a computer genius and it took him days -DAYS - to clean up my poor little machine. I am sure he was shaking his head at how little I know about the inner-workings of computers.
After all, I am practically a Luddite. A Luddite who was getting a little twitchy about not being able to check her email.
Today, once my chores were done, I spent some time catching up on correspondence and other computer-related tasks. Rob walked by and patted me on the shoulder and said, "Are you happy that your buddy is back?"
I laughed, but the answer is yes and no.
I cannot tell you how much I accomplished during my days when I was completely unplugged. Of course, I am riding the waves of nesting hormones, but I know, in my heart of hearts, that it would have been just as easy to ignore those nesting urges and read blogs.
I felt a little odd being on the computer during the day today; it only took a week of restricted computer access to get accustomed to reading/posting solely in the evenings, but the change in our mornings has been transformative.
I am definitely enjoying the direction in which this new schedule is taking us. I am using my time at home with kids more productively and I am using my computer time more wisely. When I am working on a deadline, even self-imposed, I find that I have a much stronger tendency not to squander my time.
I am going to keep it up . . . until I have this new baby and I drop off the face of the earth.
(I am five weeks away now, so you know what that means. It's The HomeFront Baby Pool time! I just love hearing all your predictions, so I'll be posting a little the pool later this week.)
How are things with you, my friends?
