Weekend Edition: Unscheduled Hiatus

Last week the power receptacle on my computer decided to stop working altogether, which caused the battery to power down completely, and it had to make a little visit to the genius bar at the Apple store.  I was without it for four days because they had to order the part that was needed.  It was a bit shocking since I'm used to jumping on the internet whenever the mood strikes me.  By the third day however, I was seeing that it was a blessing in disguise.  I got so much done around the house!  So much that I'm thinking that I might have to declare a few days a week as off-line only.  Or alternately ditching the internet at home altogether and relying on wi-fi hotspots for daily online access.  We shall see.


  1. We don't have cable tv at our house (and haven't for a year) and it is amazing. It's so nice to be free of the tv which totally sucks me in every time I'm around one!

    Sometimes you have to take a few steps to make your life more productive!

  2. I agree-- I have never had cable tv except for a brief period when I had a roommate who had to have it. And when the whole digital signal switch happened last year it took me six months to even hook up a new tv-- and I've only turned it on about four times since then. However, I feel like I get away with never turning on the tv because I watch shows on Hulu and have Netflix. If I ditch the internet at home I probably won't really watch much Hulu. Not sure that I want to give it up!
