I'm finding it surprisingly easy to stay away from the internet.
I've checked my email a couple of times, I've read a few blogs and left comments.
But really, my heart's just not in it.
The enthusiasm, the fun....it's gone.
Trying to find something to write about is a chore now, where before this I would just put down whatever popped into my head.
If a lot was in my head, I'd get them all sorted out and scheduled and just check in everyday to read the comments, (or see the lack of comments).
Then read everyone else on my list.
I haven't yet worked out the scheduling problem with this new dashboard page, so I've given up on scheduling for now, since I can't think of things to write about anyway.
I'm sure the enthusiasm will return, but in the meantime, I'm watching dvds, reading real books, I've done a couple of dozen code cracker puzzles, (Ilove those), and I've been sleeping.
Get home from work...take a nap.
Finish dinner, clean up the dishes, do a puzzle....go to bed. And read a book until I sleep.
Yesterday was my Friday off and I didn't even have a dentist appointment to go to.
(That's next Friday....)
I woke early, while it was still dark, thought about turning on the computer, but changed my mind and followed my old habit of coffee and a book in bed until I fell back to sleep.
Pottered around all morning, had a nap after lunch, pottered around all afternoon, mostly reading, then turned on the computer after dinner. After only a couple of hours, I'd had enough, turned it off again and went to bed, where I fell asleep almost immediately.
This morning I woke early again, went out to buy the paper as soon as the shop was open, sat down and actually read it instead of just skimming headlines and doing the crossword puzzle, then I had another nap.
I'm not sure if I should be worried about all this sleeping.
I'll give it a couple of weeks and then reassess.
(If I start falling asleep or wanting to be asleep at work that would be a problem).
Perhaps I've just been pushing myself too hard these past few months and my body has said "enough".
