"Yes," I said. "I did. It's one week tomorrow."
"I really didn't think you could do it," he repeated, staring at me as if I were wearing a prairie dress and bonnet and churning butter right there in our living room.
"Well," I said, "I guess SOME of us aren't addicted to our electronics." Hey, I earned a little gloating, all right?
Unfortunately, this makes tomorrow my moment (or day, really) of truth: the girls have art class on Mondays, so I will once again be in possession of my beloved IPad. Much as I LOVE playing Words With Friends and trading quips on Twitter, I have to admit that I have felt more grounded and sane not having my nose in the Internet all the time. So, short of moving to the moon, what am I supposed to do about this pesky conundrum?
In other words, I desperately need to hear what has worked for you in your own quest to limit personal electronic usage. Considering that you are AT THIS VERY MOMENT wasting your time reading this blog on the Internet, this may turn out to be a matter of the blind leading the blind, right? But let's give it a try, anyway - especially since I can't seem to remember whom we asked for advice before the advent of the worldwide web.
