I'm starting to think that I am too (is it one "o" on to, or 2?) dependent on the Internet. For a few days my laptop wasn't working and I had major attitude problems. Good grief... how could something become so addicting? It's back up and running now, obviously. But while it wasn't working I did find (hmmm "find"?) more time to read or practice or do household chores than when my computer was working. While the computer and the Internet are wonderfully fabulous tools which enable me to do research, buy Christmas gifts or connect with dear friends on the other side of the globe, I have allowed it to take over much of my time and energy. Sometimes my family suffers ("not now, I have to finish this one thing online..." "wait a few minutes until this email is done" "I'm coming to bed in just a minute"... "Daddy can read you a bedtime story, I'll be there soon..." Sigh.
I hope to make some changes in this.
