Trouble with internet addiction?? That was on the local news tonight.
Apparently, it is prevalent among teenagers. But I think that it affects some adults, too.
I admit to using the internet a lot. I use it sporadically all day for my business.
And in the evening, I use it to write my blog post, and sometimes to surf around craigslist, or ebay, or just to keep up with the blogs I read. And while it is recreational and enjoyable, there are times when I just turn it off, and pick up my knitting, or my Kindle.
Because it is a good thing to do, and because it is just too easy to keep my face glued to this screen.
I love being home for dinner, and knowing that I don't have to go out again tonight, for anything.
After so many years of working shift work, believe me, it is SWEET. I simply adore it.
Pulling the shades, putting my feet up, making a cuppa tea for me and my mother, free to play on the laptop, read, knit, or do whatever else I want to do.
I used to hate being at work in the evenings, and even worse, I hated working all night. I am glad I don't have to do it anymore.
Once again, I need to free up the 7 ft Toika, for upcoming orders. So L and I wove a 6'x9' Walking on Sunshine rug.
We are going to do another one, but I have to spend a day sewing the strips together first.
Winter is inching along. Another storm coming tomorrow. There does not seem to be any relief in sight.
Everyone I know is sick of it, and nerves are frayed. My tolerance for some things is nil.
If I see Charlie Sheen's crazed face again, I am going to flip out.
It's on the TV, on the cover of every magazine in the grocery store, and if that's not enough, my mother trots into my living room every now and then to update us on his insanity.
Maybe I'm selfish, but I avoid unhealthy situations at every turn. I do. There were plenty of times in my life, when I didn't avoid them, but with age comes 'some' wisdom, at least I hope so.
At any rate, the less drama in my life, the better.
Thank you very much.
