Here’s a little secret I will let you all in on: I can’t do it all. Surprised? Of course not but it’s a little fact that has always annoyed the hell out of me. This is probably why I am a dabbler these days and not a doer. Jack-of-all-trades, visit this master of none. Except it is more like Jack of No Trades.
It seems though that whenever I start something new something else suffers. For example, when I am prolifically blogging on this blog my other one gets ignored (and vice versa). When I am writing a lot the Mister gets ignored. When I spend more time with the Mister blogging/writing doesn’t happen. When I am watching movies books don’t get read. I still haven’t figured out a way to balance it all.
That being said, Digital Detox week didn’t do much for me except I did get to catch up on some reading. By Thursday with Miss Fussy Britches being in a foul mood lately (pretty sure there are FOUR molars coming in at once) and another dump of snow on the ground ( I am not going to complain about the weather, I am not going to complain about the weather, I am not going to complain about the weather…) I turned the computer back on for company because – let’s face it – the internet is what keeps me company during the day. Other than the computer most “digital” things are scaled back in my life anyway – I use my cell phone about twice a month maybe, we don’t watch TV, we rarely get a chance to watch a movie these days and I don’t play video games. Really what I use the computer for is keeping connected with people and that is something I’m not willing to give up anytime soon. In fact, I wish my computer and I had a little more alone time together and that I knew how to balance computer/writing time with the rest of my life.
