Need to detox…

Tuesday Chatter


This weekend I was computer free.  I turned off my computer Friday night and did not turn it back on until Monday morning.  I just decided that I spend entirely too much time in cyberspace and not enough in real-life-space with people I can hear, see and touch and doing things that require getting off my butt and the only way to change that is to reevaluate my priorities.

It’s not that I think being connected with people I have met in computer world is not important,  they are important and some have become valued friends, it’s simply that I need to do other things, too.  Somehow the computer has become addictive and I have allowed it to be something I need rather than something to use and enjoy. I guess I need to detox.

I won’t be going cold turkey! I will still write and participate in challenges but only during the week. I will limit time spent computing and turn it off completely on the weekends. This will also limit time visiting and commenting.  Most likely I will visit but commenting may not happen as often or may be just a few words shared. I am sorry but when the timer goes off so does the computer.


Of course, I may change my mind tomorrow or next week.  Or it’s possible that my ditzy self may go over the edge and get the mubblefubbles or start seeing pink elephants wandering around on my balcony. If this happens I will let you know and you can do an intervention or something.

Today is Saturday, November 20, 2010


Ok, I just spent a good bit of time on a really wonderful post.  Trust me it was one of my best.   Then somehow it got deleted. I have no idea how it happened, surely it was not my fault but some random erase fiend that attacked my computer.  I am not in the mood for this.  I am now angry and want to throw my computer far far away.  But of course I will not cause I am a sane and rational person, most of the time but maybe not right now.

I am going to walk away and come back at a time when I am back to my usual pleasant silly self.  Too bad y’all missed some really good thoughts.  If I can recapture them I will put them here.  The recaptured thoughts will not be as spectacular though.  Sorry.
