Hello, stranger!

I thought I was being productive during our one-car season.

Well, you should see everything I can get done with no car AND no computer!

At first it was no big deal. After all, why pay for a $105 universal cord when the warranty would ship one, free?

Until 2-day priority shipping stretched into a week...and our phone line went dead for the last 24 hours. I've been elbowing the kids out of the way when my husband comes home at night.

Glad to "see" you all again!

If it helps at all, I've been checking your blog in excess of twice a day to see if you were back yet. You've been missed!

Glad to see you, too! I know just what you mean about the productivity explosion when the computer's down. I need to declare a no computer day sometime soon!
Pretty picture, btw! I love the blue and white dish.

Welcome back! It's amazing (and very eye opening) how productive we can be without the Internet!

Yay! You're back.

Welcome back, Meredith. And yes, don't get me started on how much more I would get done without the little detail of a computer in my life. :-)

Amy said...

I bet your house looks awesome :) We missed you, Meredith!

Glad to see you back! Our internet was down all afternoon today while my husband did some electrical work. I thought I was going to go nuts! I don't know how you lasted a week!

It's hard to remember that a decade ago, I barely knew what the internet was, much less saw it as a necessity to life!

So glad that you are back on line. Sure did miss your blog. I know what you mean though, if I turn off this computer and FORCE myself to do other things I sure can do a lot. I have been working on a big declutter too. My storage room is a mess. I have decided I can let go of about 99% of the stuff in there. Take care. Do not over do. Roxie

Glad you're back. I think I waste more time on the computer writing/reading about all the stuff I should/want to do than actually doing it. So, what all did you do during your 'net hiatus? I'm in need of inspiration.

Glad you are back!! I hope you didn't take our comments as though we think you "owe" us something. I think your readers (me included) just wanted to be sure you were ok.

welcome back! Glad you're okay and have a backlog of productivity to encourage you : ) I forced myself to check only once a day. Was pretty sure you were being frugal...

Yippee! You're back! I sure would't pay $105.00 for something if I could get it for free even if it did take a week.

Welcome back to the blog world! I think it's pretty obvious that we missed you.

Missed you! I'm now on a self-imposed turning the computer off at night. My sweet fiance programmed it for me so it will give me a warning at 10:00 and shut off five minutes later. I'm attempting better time management! :) Kelly

Welcome back, you were missed!

We had nearly three months when our computer was down and we could only use our son's laptop when he didn't need it for school.

Yuk...
