Last week, our adorable little puppy chewed through our phone lines outside! I was warned by a dog trainer that I had met that around 8 months old, puppies are THE WORST. The trainer mentioned they forget everything you taught them the first 8 months of their life, and they are just beasts. Well, the trainer was right. Lana has been such a bad puppy lately. I wonder how long this lasts.
At any rate, she chewed through the phone lines and we were without the internet for a couple of days. Todd was able to fix it, but then I realized something – I didn’t want to get online!
I’ve been bored of being online. I go to the same 5 sites all of the time. They include:
Yahoo.com (my email)
Facebook.com (I rarely post anymore)
Blogger.com (see what everyone is up to)
Huntington.com (our bank)
Mint.com (to keep track of our finances)
I pay our bills, but that is easy. I can set them up through our free online bill pay. But lately, I have felt NO NEED to get online in the evenings. If I do, it is to check in for about 15 minutes, and then I’m done.
I have no desire to email those I should be emailing (friends and family.) And even though I love SwagBucks, but if I don’t have to surf the web to get points, sobeit. If that means I get less SB’s to put towards gift cards, I’m OK with that.
Instead, I am getting something done every night. Whether it be unload the dishwasher, put away laundry, play with the puppy, piggy and kittens, or just reading in the bedroom. I would like for Todd to turn off the boob tube and for us to spend time together, but he hasn’t gotten to that point yet. Hopefully one day.
So, I must admit, it’s been nice without being too “connected.”
Do you go through phases like this as well?
