Did my title catch your attention? HA! I couldn't help myself.

But, truthfully, I'm discovering that I am addicted to the Internet. Especially to email, Facebook, and my blogs that I enjoy reading. Our computer died two days ago. We went to the library yesterday to check email, and the library's Internet was down-go figure! All night last night I would sit down to relax and just naturally reach for the computer to check email and remember that it wouldn't boot up. Today, I am at the church with my husband while he is planning worship for Sunday morning catching up on emails and getting my blog "fix" to last me a few more days. We will be in Albuquerque with my parents next week and will have limitless Internet availability for 2 1/2 weeks! Maybe during that time we will figure out what is wrong with our computer.

In the meantime, I am learning how to enjoy doing other things. I am learning that the world does not fall apart when I can't check email for 2 days (or even more). I'm learning that it's okay to have a phone conversation instead of email conversation when things do need to be taken care of. It's been good to identify my need to connect to the web and to realize I can survive without it. :)

So, all that being said-I'm signing out of the World Wide Web for a little while and will learn what life was like before my Internet addiction existed. :) Have a blessed week everyone!
