tomorrow

Tomorrow is the Blog365 day of rest. There had to be one this year, or it would have to be called Blog366.

Tomorrow is also the day I start 52 nights unplugged. From 5pm Fridays until I get up Saturday morning, there will be no screens. No iPhone, except as a phone and only if I get an incoming call. No TV. No MacBook. NO EMAIL!!! I am starting to get a little anxious just thinking about it, but I know it is well past time. Hello. My name is Kim and I'm addicted to all things internet. After Family Fun night festivities at Oliver's school, I am going to try clearing out all the catalogs and magazines from my kitchen and bedroom, and maybe read a book. I also plan to go to bed early. I have been fighting nature too long. I am a morning person. There, I said it. I need to be getting up before everyone else to get things done. And that means going to bed earlier. Yet another really good reason we need a dvr. CD? Are you listening?

And while we're on the topic of blog administrivia, this blog will be moving to WordPress in the near future. When it does, I will also launch the second blog that's been percolating in my head for, well, way too long. It's all in my head. Really. But now it's time to get it out of my head and make room for something else, before my brain explodes.

Trust the twosheep family, you WILL survive with no technology for one night :-)

But I'm really posting to ask what made you choose Wordpress over Typepad. I've been thinking of TP for a little while now - not that I blog often enough to worry about it.

(Ironically, my 'word verification' for today starts with EWE. cute.)

I, for one, could not make it an entire day without the Internet. I get the shakes just thinking about it. Good luck!

Time to start listening to music and NPR while you do chores.

All those years of NPR had my child ready to go for college: no SAT vocabulary prep needed, could pronounce names and places from current affairs, and knew a ton of stuff about the wider world.
