Wow! I got a lot of comments on taking a break, I sure appreciate it! Sometimes you wonder if there is anyone out there reading anything you write, know what I mean!?
Not having a computer around sure can be hard, it's tough not to be able to communicate with all of my friends. I realize how many people I email and don't even have their phone number! What did we do before the internet? There is no way you can actually hold a conversation with on the phone for more than 30 seconds with six children anyway.
But, you know what? The "office" is much cleaner now too, I took out one desk, cleaned out a bunch of junk and lots of cords and there is a lot more room. If we do go back to having a computer at any time, it will not be a desk top, it just sucks up too much space!
I also wrote a new winter schedule for the kids and I, which I am not following at the moment because I am at the library on the computer! :) But it has been working wonderfully and I'm getting a lot done at home. You know, those nagging little projects I know I need to complete but never get to it.
Going low-tech really has been great for the family, albeit difficult.
Thanks for the understanding! :)
