I got as far as making my list for the things I planned to do during my unplugged week…
and then a sickness took out one kid at first and then both me and my husband.
I did finish a book or two and then switched to audio books when my head hurt to much to read.
I did manage to photograph the clothes before I was too weak to get up and was able to post them from bed.
Many things still sit on my list- socks and chex mix and thank you notes (I have majorly procrastinated on those!) And even though I didn’t achieve my goal of an unplugged week I did consume social media with pleasure and not comparison or envy.
I truly enjoyed seeing houses being decorated and families at Disney or just celebrating with family. I think that’s why it’s generally hard for me to unplug during that Thanksgiving week- because everyone is having such a great time and I love following along. So maybe I will rethink when my “unplugged” week should be scheduled. Perhaps during an election week or Valentine’s Day would be a better time to take time away.
When would you pick a week to unplug? Let me know if you give it a try!
