Being Old Fashioned!

Hi guys!  Being the goofy person I am and always changing things around, I turned off my internet.  My family and I frequent the library often and sometimes McDonalds so I check it when I'm there.  I don't have a TV either.  I haven't for several years so I guess we're being old fashioned!  I love books anyway like crazy.  I'm reading so many good ones like Body Clutter: Love Your Body, Love Yourself and Survival Tips for Women with AD/HD: Beyond Piles, Palms, & Post-its.  I just finished another great book too.  This really makes it hard for me homeschooling wise being that what my kids use is through the internet.  Hmmm... Time to think of some options.  I like a simple life at times although I live in a big city.  It seems so strange that I live nearby so many people yet know very little about my neighbors.  I was talking to someone recently about this.  We have so many new gadgets and ways to talk to people through internet, phone, or text messaging but in so many ways we've lost personal contact.  What happened to front porches and people just showing up to say hello?  I hate how I have to make a planned visit with someone a month from now.  I have one friend who is really spontaneous and she's fun like that.  We can just call each other up and say "Come on over!"  I know that technology was supposed to make things easier but somehow it just seems more complicated.

Totally agree, taht is why I continue to write letters on beautiful paper with beautiful pens! There is just something extra special about receiving a letter in the mail or having a friend drop in!

Hey, you're saving some money on the phone bill that way I'm guessing, too! But I will miss you if you're not on very often. :)
