Taking a break

I'm not sure if I have ever mentioned on this blog that, if you take away the blogging, I don't really think I am from this generation. Here is a list of things I do not have

  • A smart phone - my phone plan doesn't even include texting. I would much prefer a phone call anyway
  • An ipod - technically my husband has one but we can't get it back from someone after leaving it while in England
  • A love of facebook - I was going to delete my account, but then it made keeping in touch while abroad a bit easier. I'm considering deleting it again
Those seem to be the big three. This blog is the only thing that does not fit and is also something I'm going to take a break from for a while. See, Maria is definitely my priority and I don't always have a lot of time for the computer. I try to check my email before my husband leaves for work and then, depending on length and location of naps, I may not do so again for the rest of the day. I wish people understood that and still enjoyed using phones. It is nice to hear people's voices and I can talk and pay attention to Maria, but I can't type because the needs two hands.

So I guess what I am trying to say is that entering into motherhood is going to make me even less like my generation, as blogging will no longer be the odd category since I won't be doing that either.


  1. Oh man!! I just joined the blogging community and am sad to see you leaving...but you know we'll stay in touch. You couldn't get rid of me if you tried!

  2. We don't have smart phones or ipods either :) We'll miss you!

  3. I may be back as Maria gets older...right now it's just not a priority and I feel like I have nothing unique to say
