Random thoughts of an upbeat mind

Going to unplug

Last Sunday, Carla wrote about being unplugged from the internet for a good part of the day.  While unplugged she got a ton of stuff done.  Way more that I think is humanly possible but then again Carla is part superwoman! 🙂

Anyhoo I thought it was a fantastic idea and am going to try it today from 12 pm – 5 pm.  Maybe eventually I’ll work my way up to longer.

I have been warning the children all week that it was coming so they are not unprepared.  I need to take away Diva’s iTouch as she seems to have found an unsecured wifi connection.

I am not hoping to get more chores done but more undistracted time with my kids.  Just now they really will be off doing their own thing so while I can still exert my will, I will! LOL

Last night Princess’ BFF slept over so she was warned about the loss of the internet.

I’ll be back later to tell you how we fared and

  1. It is such a great idea. At the school where I work all the kids have iPads. We have three “tech-free” days per week where they are not allowed to touch the internet unless a teacher prescribes it for work. However, it is scary on the “plugged-in” days just how addicted they are to their technology.

    • On days when we have blackouts or loss of internet/cable I see just how addicted we all are. 😦 Going to try and unplug every Sunday and see if I can make it stick and not be a drag.
