Unplugged

In case you were wondering...
I am MIA from the online world.
My mac needs a new battery AND a new power cord.
To the tune of about $200.
Which I DO NOT have.
And wont have until probably October.

And I've already bought a new power cord twice...
(me...er, WE...are a little rough on technology around here!)
So there is a part of me that doesn't want to sink more moola into this one.
A big part just wants to hold out,
And put the $200 towards a new laptop.
or iPad.
Anyways...
This means no blogging for me...
No Facebook for me...
No Etsy surfing, listing, selling or buying for me...
Very little Twittering for me
(except what I can do from my dinosaur of a cell phone)

It's been weird.
I will admit I miss parts of it.
I haven't been able to sync the miles on my iPod to Nike+.
And I have a list a mile long of things to Google.
And another list of Books I want to buy.
(I might actually have to go to a BOOKSTORE! Gah!)
And holy heck...
I've realized how much I use the computer when I cook.

But I can also admit
I've been enjoying NOT being on the computer.
Enjoying Summer.
All the kids home, swim lessons, backyard BBQ's, the pool after dinner
Sewing, reading, gardening, baking
Celebrating 11 years with Mateo!!
Getting organized.
Being lazy.

This morning I went for a 6 mile run, then layed in bed and watched Elf with the kids.
All before 8AM.
The sun is blazing (FINALLY!)
And I'm gonna take it all in.

As soon as I upload all my pics to Matt's computer I will share with you...
Megan's Kinder Graduation
Our 4th of July
Wyatt's new haircut (that I did myself!)
My new blonde (that I did myself!)
how I've gone a little crazy with Chalkboard Paint.
how the girls keeping their room clean for 100 days = getting their ears pierced
(it's totally working!)
Many recipes.
And a bunch of other random everyday happy.

So bear with me.
I be in and out.
Until I win the lottery.
Or October...which ever comes first.
Know I miss you!
But we're busy as ever and doing just fine =)

BOO!
What kind of mac do you have? What kind of power cord and battery do you need? I have a friend who is a Mac fiend and might have extras laying around. Worth a shot!

Glad to hear all is well. I've missed you on here... is that weird since I don't actually KNOW you?

Enjoy summer sans computer.

I was hoping that you were on vacay or somethin' fun! We are in the same "need Mac battery AND power cord boat". But I imagine that it is nice to unplug (whether you're forced to or not) for a bit! Anxiously awaiting all the pics from your summer so far! ;-) Take care and stay cool!

I love unplugged. But I like your writing. I'd wish for October to hurry up, but I kinda like the summer. No offense. ;)
