I have a addiction...

to Electronics.

Specifically ones that connect to the internet or take pictures of people. I always knew that I was obsessed with my computer but going for one week without one has totally proven to me that I am not only obsessed but addicted.

Without access to the computer this week I have managed to finish all my laundry, clean (and scrub very hard) all my bathrooms, organize my closet, read a book, and catch up on my DVR, and reorganize my living room. These might seem like normal every day tasks to some people but to me I usually complete just a few of those and usually play catch up with myself all week. It has also been surprisingly nice not to have access to the internet. I tend to be one of those people who's like oh what movie was that actor in? and then I immediately google it! I can spend hours browsing the internet for wedding ideas, online shopping, browsing and adjusting my wedding registry, reading blogs, facebook, gossip websites, the list could go on forever!!

Sooo to make a long story short I have a ton to catch up on in my google reader and tons of comments to leave for all my BFF(blog friends forever) (just passing my Friday afternoon at work!) and K (the gatekeeper of our money) said we can buy a new computer!! Yay!! I am looking into a Dell b/c that's what we used to have and they are offering a 20% off promotion right now so hopefully I will have a new computer by next week and my house will go back to being a mess but I will be caught up on all my blog reading and celebrity gossip!!

  1. okay... I'll admit it too... I have an addiction to my computer. There. I said it. I can't go cold turkey, but I could use more time for housework too. Help!!!
    Maybe certain time limits, or only certain times of the day?
    I need to get back to my real world now, bye!

  2. I go crazy when I don't check my e-mail for 1 day! I feel like I'm missing out on something special or important and it gets to me!

    I need a daily fix of the internet!

  3. Thanks for the sweet comment about my 1/2! It was a blast and I am already itching to do another one!

    And I am the same way, I NEED electronics in my life. I think I would get the shakes without the internet...

  5. Me too!! If I'm away from my iPhone for like 10 minutes I feel like I've missed a world of emails and texts!! Haha! If you are seriously thinking of a Dell, I've worked there for 2 1/2 yrs so you are more than welcome to call into my team and they will make sure you get the right system for you. I can't tell you how many ppl either get too much computer or not enough! Email me at clm245 at gmail .com and I'll give you our team ext if you want it :) But working for Dell, I have too many electronics that I probably don't need! Haha
