Falling off the Face of the Earth

I ended up stuck without internet access for the last few days while on vacation and the loooonnnng drive home.  It was an enlightening experience to say the least.  I was angry at first…. well actually I was really ticked off for quite some time about it.  I tried doing things on my phone like logging onto my page and checking email but I suck at using my phone for such things.  It takes me forever just to type a simple text and service was iffy at best – so there was no accomplishing anything online via my phone.

Anyway – the fact is, I started this July Blog Challenge and was really excited about it and I was on top of posting everyday and I had every intention of continuing to be on time with this challenge.  Then I was interrupted for not just one day but several and I was unable to post my daily challenge posts.  It was disheartening to get behind and to have no way of doing anything about it.

Then I realized that not only was I upset about not being able to post my blog challenge posts but about not being able to get on the internet in general.  It just felt like I was so out of touch with the entire world.  It didn’t help that I was vacationing in America’s Historic Triangle – which is colonial historic sites in Williamsburg, Va, the ruins of the first settlement at Jamestown and the battlefields of Yorktown.  So the area I was in was set back four hundred years in the past.

All I can say is that a trip to Virginia Beach did make me feel better but I am still almost four blog challenge posts behind – which I have every intention of completing.  Something about a lack of connection to the internet just made me feel like I had somehow lost touch with the civilized world.

  1. I am playing catch up all ready as well I blame the glorious sun we are having here in the UK at the minute we don’t get it often so have to make the most of it

  2. Interesting post, I must say. I, too, have been terribly busy in the past month and my blog has suffered; moving, getting organized, unpacking, the usual life stuff.

    At times I was agitated, missing out on the ‘net and reading other blogs, as well as my own email accounts. But…

    …sometimes it IS good to be in that downtime mode, where one is forced to remain in the present and enjoy that particular ‘Moment’.

    Easier said than done, I know. I’m sure, though, you must have experienced that calming ‘downtime’ whilst ensconced on the beach. The sand, sea, and sky has a way of doing that to a harried soul.

    I do hope, though, that you are now back on track.

    Take care,
    Paul 🙂
