I give. Uncle! NUFF! I must have internet, and internet I shall have. On Tuesday. I finally made the call tonight, after I realized there was no way to get the amount of work I have to do done without being away from home way more than I want to be. I feel like I haven’t seen my kids in a week, between needing to use the internet and helping Mama with Christmas stuff.

Now, I still won’t have my own machine, but I can download whatever I need to dh’s and that will still be batter than having to leave home, right?

Purging my life of internet was a little bit like using Orovo detox. I feel like I have clarified some things for myself, and I hope to be able to maintain a reasonable balance once we have internet back on.
