Over the last week I’ve taken a break from the internet. Some might call it a forced break due to the fact that my son spilled water on my laptop, frying the baby. I have been waiting for my Precious’s replacement. That is not the case. We have four other pc’s in the house and my husband has his work laptop if I turned really desperate.
I spend a lot of time on my laptop. Throughout the day I check email, write, blog, read news and a wide assortment of time wasters. One might think because I’ve not been on the net I might get a lot more done. I decided to test to see if that would be the case. What did I get done on my break?
1. Finished staining the stairs
2. Front door and back door painted
3. Laundry (for 8 people)
5. Dusting (daily)
6. Sweeping (daily)
7. Hauling water (3x’s)
8. Cleaned the oven
9. Organized pantry
10. Organized five closets
11. Cooked (daily)
12. Scrubbed two toilets (daily)
13. Went shopping
14. Read 2 1/2 books
15. Vacuum (daily)
16. Mop (3x’s)
17. Clean refrigerator
18. Pick up a 1000 things children left out (daily)
19 Did lessons with the kids (daily)
20. Organized book shelves (4)
21. Iron work clothes (daily)
22. Strip and remake beds (6)
23. Clean windows (11)
24. Talking on the phone with Momma (10x’s a day) 😛
Now it looks like I got a whole lot done, and I suppose I did. But this is less than what I normally do. My productivity is down because I haven’t had my central hub of operations. Add to that list editing, writing, an average of 500 emails a week, critiquing,facebooking and phone calls with various friends that bless me with their time. I feel like a complete loafer this week.
Don’t worry about me though. All is right in my world once again. My new Precious came by way of UPS today. Pretty, Precious.
Peace, love and God’s will.
