My Apologies...Road Trip and Limited Time in the Rain

Larry and I took a short road trip to see the grandsons in Omaha. Before I left I decided that I wanted to limit the time I spent with my face staring into a computer, iPad, or iPhone screen. 

 

And so I wrote my posts days in advance and scheduled them to go live downtimewhile I was gone. The only thing left was to find posts to add to my Sunday series. 

 

Unfortunately, while I was able to read many posts I had to limit my commenting and responding to comments left on my post.  So I apologize if I have not visited your post or responded to your comment in the last few days. Your support and interaction is not something I take for granted. 

 

The “downtime” was well spent because I did get to enjoy watching our grandkids and visiting with Larry’s daughter and her husband. 

 

While I did limit myself, I can honestly say that I am not someone who can divorce themselves totally from being connected. 

While we were visiting Saturday evening with Larry’s daughter’s uncle and aunt, my Apple watched pinged me that the Astros’ game was about to start. Another ping and an alert that the KU game was about to begin. 

 

I took a big breath and decided that the games could wait. (yes...I actually said that to myself) 

 

However true to her personality, Larry’s daughter stood up at 7 and said: “You guys have to go now...we have games to watch!”

 

That said...I’m back and ready to resume interacting!!!

I love that, you guys have to go, we have games to watch, haha.  It sounds like something I would be thinking, even if I didn't say it out loud.

Hi Wayne Martin I grew up tossing around the football in our front yard and going to games when I was a kid so it's a good thing that Larry likes sports. 

Sally K. & David L. Hanson poor Thatcher...he's the sports fan in his family which is why he loves it when we're there so he can watch it with us.

Good for you for being able to unplug from the matrix a bit while gone, Kathy.  I do similar things while away.  It's important that we do so!

Sheila Anderson I can remember years ago when we were house hunting, we had to hunt for a payphone if we saw a house we wanted to look at. 

Nina Hollander It's mostly on my part because I try hard to comment and respond as well.

Donald Urschalitz you know what, I really did!!!! I wasn't totally unplugged but I didn't feel compelled to read and comment here. 

You're right Joan Cox there's a lot of life out there. 

Michael Jacobs the time clock rests solely in my warped head.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel wherever you are...have fun and be safe!

George Souto LOL that's exactly what it felt like.

I'm finding it much easier to be unconnected lately. Seems the less you participate the easier it is to ignore. Unfortunately for AR, it has meant far less participation on my part. We are currently on our yearly fall trip south so for the past three days I've had basically no internet except my phone. I'm trying to pop in now and then, but it's not been easy.
