A Few Things I Discovered (Rediscovered*) During My Four Consecutive Days of Unplugging…



  1. Audrey's love of cherries sadly does not in fact translate to a love of cherry tart.

  2. I really like the smell of Cray-Pas.

  3. UNO is the perfect antidote to cabin fever on a 100 degree day.

  4. All activities somehow seem slightly less mundane (i.e. UNO tournaments) when done to a soundtrack of The Talking Heads.

  5. *The most simple events grilling a good burger, wrestling drippy ice cream, running through the sprinkler and watching fireworks from afar, drastically outweighs overcrowded, manufactured holiday fun... every. single. time.

You are right on with #5. I unplugged for most of the day Sunday and, as with all of my computer-free days, I felt so clear-headed and happy.

I'm glad your few days off were good ones!
