One year and several dozen blog posts ago I took a week's worth of vacation from social networking. "Remember that?" asks Chris Farley. The week then turned in to two months and I was gone until just before Thanksgiving in November.
I didn't remember two months. That seems like a long time.
But my enthusiasm when I returned was inspiring.
My appreciation of this online world was rich.
My reset button had definitely been pushed.
I wonder if I could do that today. I have my iPad now and Padrick keeps me very, very connected. Blogshelf, Twitter for Ipad, Flipboard, etc. are at least a good percentage of what I do on my new, fabulous machine. I have more facebook friends to read about, follow about twice as many blogs and have now established a solid group of tweople who I like to read on a regular basis.
I have to say a break sounds appealing though.
And a little scary.
It's the scary that has made me decide to do it. If I feel I need it, it's time to unplug for a bit.
Work on my writing.
Play with my kids.
Hold my love.
Hold her some more.
So, my readers, it's time to go.
Talk to you around Turkey Time.
