Hey hey yall! If all went well, I’m cruising around the Caribbean right now (hopefully not getting sea sick). I won’t have any internet access, so I’ve preplanned this week with some things I wanted to share with you.
Munchkin Meals is still HAPPENING this Thursday. I won’t lie, I’m anxious about how it will all go without me here, but I didn’t want to throw it off schedule. So please take your pictures and come link up on Thursday
And since I’m unplugged right now, I wanted to touch on the idea for a minute. Being on a catamaran, we won’t have access to the internet. For that, I am so grateful.
Sadly, I think it would take a lot for me to fully unplug from this wonderful online world, even on vacation, without it being forced on me. Yes, I realize how sad that sounds and I’m working on it. Mostly I’m hooked out of habit. Waiting for the water to boil? Check facebook. Hailey does something cute? Instagram it. Have a question? Ask the twitterverse.
As a stay at home mom, it’s amazing having so many ways to connect with people literally at my fingertips, but knowing how to disconnect is also incredibly important. I’ve become quite good at putting the phone down (and usually in the other room) when I play with Hailey, but I still struggle with it when I’m hanging out on the couch with David at night. I love sharing and connecting with you guys, but I suppose it’s pretty important to share and connect with David, too
For that, and so many other reasons, I am ready to open my arms to a simpler way of life for a week. No technology; just sun, sand, open water and my best friends to share it all with.
See you in a week!
Do you ever have trouble unplugging?
