Life vs. the Internet

I know I haven’t posted in a long time. But, you know what? I am not going to apologize.  Lately, life has just been more important. Nothing spectacular, just regular, everyday ole’ life.

Life is more important than the internet. Just in case you missed that, LIFE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE INTERNET. However, the internet is fun. And interesting. And exciting. And boring. And often, a waste of time. There is a place for all of that.

The other day, my oldest pulled me away from checking my e-mail for the umpteenth time. We played several exciting games of tic-tac-toe. The difference was, I was playing with my son. We only played for 5 or 10 minutes. We tied most games. Each of us won at least once. We talked, we giggled. We decided that the pencil really won. That was way more important than the internet.

So, if you’re reading this instead of playing with your kids, talking to your spouse, or petting your cat or dog with undivided attention, I urge you to log off, put the computer to sleep, and spend some time with the outside world. Even staring into space has its benefits.
