So, apparently it takes an entire week to recover from one week of going "unplugged". I plugged back in to the real world on the 14th & I was overwhelmed by the number of e-mails waiting for me in my in basket. Ugh. I'm still sorting through it all, so if I haven't responded to you, shoot me a new e-mail and you'll pop back up at the top of my "to do" list!
Our "unplugged" week was much tougher this year than last. At least it was tougher on me. Baby G. breezed through the week with no problems. As a stay-at-home-mom with two young children, I admit that I rely on my "electronic babysitter" to entertain my children when I need to do the little things -- like laundry. And dishes. And any sort of cleaning whatsoever. So, when we went "unplugged", all entertainment of the small people that live in my house was left to me.
So, I resorted to playdating like a rock star. We were never home. We bounced from soccer camp to Chick-Fil-A to the water park to playdates at friends houses to the library and then I dragged my weary children home around 6 p.m. every night. We were high on juice boxes and chicken nuggets.
They loved it. Me? Not so much.
Here's a look at our week:
