Weekends are usually slower for emails so this weekend I "disconnected" the computers and just acted like a normal disconnected person, whatever that is.
After the garden club meeting on Friday, I shut everything down and actually never thought about the internet, emails, or business at all. I read some (in a real book, went to sleep early, woke up late and just did "things" around the house (cutting the lawn, and wood) until we went to a friend's daughter's birthday party in Bell Buckle.
We got to see friends and neighbors we had not seen in a long time (neighbors!) and just socialized for the evening. I knew the Alabama/LSU game was on, but even that did not pressure me. We were able to get back without rushing and I saw what all I needed. Except for when Tennessee plays Alabama, I am an Alabama fan so all is well in the world.
Sunday was bit more hectic and sore but I had to get the wood in and Deb had her projects to complete so the day went fast and STILL I had not connected. A friend called from China at about 9:30 last night and needed me to find out something, so reluctantly I pushed the buttons on the computers and fired them up.
I refused to get started with emails so I did not even start that software, just a browser. As soon as I got what I needed, the computers went into sleep and I walked away.
This is all great, until this morning when I had to get back to business. Weekends are slow but I had 200+ emails to wade through and although many on the weekend are not business, they still take time. Hmmm, I wonder what it would be like to disconnect for a week?
Now, why am I telling you all this? Darned if I know. Sometimes a blog is therapeutic for the blogger and this is one of those times. Have a good week!
