I kind of felt like a cheat at first because I had to do some work and submit a party on Friday morning. I did end up responding to several email and attending to some computer work until about midday. After that I signed out and headed out to spend the weekend in my home town.
My goal was to unplug for at least 24 hours but I actually managed to make it over48! I usually worry about what I'm missing out on when I'm not in touch via email, facebook, blog, etc. Guess what? The world didn't stop spinning because I was out of touch - ha! Can you tell the Lord has been dealing with me on pride issues - ha ha! It was nice to have a good reason to not obsess over the weekend.
I also unplugged from a little mommy/wife guilt and enjoyed a selfish weekend with my best friend. BBC was visiting my MIL learning how to be a farmer when he grows up and DH got to enjoy a little extra video game time.
Sometimes we girls need to unplug from a little more than the computer and re-energize ourselves so that we can better love and serve those important people in our lives! The weekend concluded with a quiet and reflective 2-hour drive home today and a big welcome from both my boys when I returned. This unplugged thing wasn't so bad after all!
