Inspired by my friend The Great Chris Talley™, I've decided to have a week-long Internet vacation, starting tomorrow. I already began by deactivating (temporarily) my Facebook account. If I left it up, I think I'd feel too tempted to check in and too obligated to respond to messages and comments and horrible photos (uploaded by my sister Katie) of me doing an ill-advised shot on vacation.
Awhile back Chris and his wife Heather took a break from Internet and television. Eek. I'm not so sure about the television part of the experiment. I mean, I really can't go without watching Breaking Bad tomorrow night. So I'm still going to watch a little TV but I'm going to stick to shows I really care about and can't wait a week to watch. Actually, now that I think about it, Breaking Bad is pretty much it at the moment.
Of course I'll blog about it when my self-imposed hiatus is over.
I'm hopeful I'll get all sorts of productive things accomplished. I'll get the kids registered for school and stock up on school supplies. I'll clean the bathrooms. I'll fold all the laundry and put it away. Maybe I'll clean out the garage and finally donate a bunch of stuff to Goodwill. I'll clean out Kate's room and clear out all the little girl clothes that no longer fit my pre-teen. Maybe I'll work out twice a day and cook amazing meals every night. Maybe I'll write another book.
Perhaps I'll have some sort of amazing epiphany during the week, some insight into who I am and what the hell I'm supposed to be doing with my life.
Or maybe I'll just take a lot of naps.
