Communication is Key

I like facebook. I like to blog. I like shopping online and the anticipation of tracking a package.

I also like being able to communicate with my husband. Somewhere in the 18 months we've been married we've lost the ability to look at each other like this:

Often, we'll be sitting side by side on the couch, each of us with our respective laptop open. I've lost him to the online world of guns, reading reviews, and KSL Classifieds. He's lost me to the online world of crafts, mommy blogs, Facebook, and Amazon.

One of us will talk to the other during this time, and get a vague "Mmmm-hmmm" or "Yeah" in response. This isn't how we started out. We used to be able to talk about anything and everything for hours. We'd listen to music together. We'd cook together, do the dishes together, do everything together. Somewhere, we lost that to the worldwide web.

So, in an effort to rekindle and revitalize our communication, and to maximize our together time, we will be going internet free for a whole week. This period of no e-communication will begin on Monday, and will run for 7 days (duh). So, miss me while I'm gone, and I'll see you when I get back.

Oh so true... I have a rule that when Trent is home the computer stays off. I'm not allowed to look at blogs or facebook when he is around. We get so little time together I hate to do stuff like that. It's hard to follow sometimes though, I'm addicted. Good luck with your week!

I totally understand what you mean! Scott and I have the same thing, although his is video games! This is a really good idea, maybe I will try it...

i like this idea! I think we're going to try it.

Lena said...

What a great idea. I hope it works for you! I usually loose Nik to computer cames with his big head phones on. But at least I can lay on his lap and take a nap.

good idea! It gets even harder to do this when you get a kiddo, so start now!
