Webless Life Was Bliss

So here I am re-connected to the Internet… Not sure I like it much yet but maybe it will grow on me (like a malevolent virus)?

Seriously though, my daughters and I have been back out in the world living on our own for some six plus months now… & I finally bit the bullet and had our Internet set up. I was amazed that we made it for so long without it – I expected the girls to complain and whine regularly about not having it… To my pleasant surprise they did not complain once that I can remember.

In fact; we really became closer as our little 3 person single parent family… & I feel the distance between us growing just a wee bit now that we can each get on a computer, XBOX, Blu-ray (Netflix), etc etc and entertain ourselves.

Before the web came back into our lives we would sit together and watch a movie or show on DVD… Or we would play a board game or cards… Jeez, the more I write here the more I regret getting our Internet hooked up!

I guess what this means is that I will need to make sure that we continue to do things together as a family and don’t let ourselves get completely distracted by multi-media overload!

I’m Just Saying…
