So it's like only about 4:45 and it's dark already. I am sitting in darkness, all alone. Listening to tunes, multi-tasking between perusing the web, responding to texts... that kind of thing. Technology. WTF did we do without it anyway? Read an actual book? Seriously, I am trying to think of what I used to do on an average day before I was all uber-connected, addicted to my laptop and things. Hm. Clean? Bills? Work? I did a lot of cleaning. I hated having a messy house. I still do, but I can easily get distracted from cleaning by the computer. It's just so... addictive. So now instead of cleaning for a while, I do a lot of mini quick pick-ups. My house still looks presentable though! I swear I am not shirking my SAHM duties! I'm not technology's bitch! Well. Not really.
I read that there's like an actual syndrome/anxiety that they are diagnosing with people who are addicted to technology - blackberries, iPhones, PDAs. Those kinds of things. Like people actually have compulsions about it. I guess I think that's weird, though I have lived through such addiction with someone who will remain nameless
I'm making a complete effort to get off the grid more. Starting another day besides today. Or tomorrow. Eh, maybe we should revisit this thought.
Later guys. Happy weekend.
