Cold Turkey

My laptop and phone both broke within 24 hours of each other and I lost all my contact with the outside world. It took almost a week to get my laptop back and a couple days to get a phone. I don't have internet on my phone so even once I got that back, it was only text messages and Twitter via text message.

I always see posts from people about how nice it is to unplug for a few days and get away from all social media. For me it was more like going cold turkey off heavy drugs. Not pretty. I am a very social person and being home all day with no co-workers and no adults to talk is really hard. I love talking to Jayden, but I also need adult conversations. Even aside from social media, you don't realize how much you use the internet until you don't have it. It made me crazy to not be able to look anything up!

I've been trying to catch up ever since. I promise I will post Jayden's birthday party pictures in my next post.

Oh, and I almost forgot-- We got our tax money! Finally!! Hooray for paying bills!!! :) :)


  1. I thought it had been pretty quiet out in internet land. Now, I know why...


  2. So happy you got your tax money! Phew!!!! I'm with you - I don't know what I would do without my phone and internet...

  3. TAX MONEY!!! Yeah! Now go crazy and buy things -- like food. You know, because those of us who adopt are crazy rich.
