Mommy needs to recharge; I am tired which causes me to be cranky and short with TJ and our kids. At the moment I am not being the wife and mother that I want to be. There are lots of contributing factors to how I’m feeling right now, but one is that I have problem: I have technology overload.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love all of the really awesome technological devices we have in our house, but it seems like I have become dependent on them. TJ and I were watching “Parks & Rec” last night and one of the characters Tom got into a car accident while tweeting. His punishment was to go a week without any “screens”-no computer, no cell phone, TV, GPS.
The show made the situation very humorous, but it got me thinking that while I do not have the overaxaggerated addiction that Tom had, I have to get a grip on how much I am online. We are heading out of town this weekend and I think it will be the perfect opportunity to go offline; I am trying to get all my stuff done before lunch today, and then afterwards I will turn off my computer and kindle fire and not turn them on again until we get home Sunday night….or maybe even Monday morning! I feel that the best way for me to recharge is to unplug
