Sans Computer

We only have one computer at home - my laptop.  (Well we do have my mother's old mac desktop that she gave us too but the software is so old it doesn't work.)   So when I left last Saturday for a week-long conference, I decided to leave my laptop behind with Robin.   Hence the lack of blog posts.  Also no responses to email and no facebook updates.   I figured I was with those who most needed me and others could call if they didn't get an answer.   (I also don't have a gadget like a Blackberry to check email constantly.)

I thought I would have 500 emails in my in-box but actually its only 265.  Not bad.   And it was good not to be distracted.   It was actually a good social experience to be w/o a computer for a week.  Not that I am giving it up for lent.  (I guess if I was you wouldn't be reading this.)

The only really ironic thing is yesterday when I was talking with Robin is that she said she couldn't get the Internet the whole time I was gone.  Actually it was a simple solution I walked her through as a little boy had turned off the wireless connection.   But I guess the reason I left it - so she could check her email and facebook - was mute.  

At least the boys used it as a DVD player.
