Library Haven

Getting rid of my internet has been wonderful. I love it! Let me count the ways:

-My house stays clean! (Huuuuge bonus right there)
-I get to visit the library once a week to use their computer. (Plus check out a good book)
-Did I mention that my library has a cafe where I can sip coffee and be on their computer?
-My husband and I play boardgames together now.
-I don't have to reply to emails everyday.
-I tend to look forward to phone calls now when before I felt "chased down".
-I look forward to being more involved in ministry now.
-I can read my bible and pray in the morning rather than feel that pull to check my email first.
-There is no "dangers" that my family could fall into while being on the internet. It's scary what my boys stumbled upon by accident one day while I was right there. By the time I could shut it off, it was too late, their little minds had been violated.

I could go on and on! I don't think I'm going back. "Killing my internet" has been the coolest decision we have made in quite some time.

I'm sitting at the library in their awesome Cafe using the free computer while sipping my morning coffee. My kids love it here because they have kid computers downstairs where they are monitored carefully and I can hang out close by in the toddler play area. My girls can play with toys while my husband checks out books. It's just a great place. :D

WOW I didn't realize you had lost so much to the internet. I thought you didn't post that often at all.

But those time stealers can be subtle, can't they? Glad things are going well for you!!!

You must have a very nice library! I worry about funding for our library. Have fun with no internet. :)

I agree the internet can get addicting, but I don't think I could live without it.
