I was away from the whirlwind of technology for three whole days! That was three very long days. You want to know what I did? I fussed and I fumed. A lot! Oh, woe is me. My phone was slow in updating so I only had so many blogs I could read and then commenting and liking were hit and miss. So my blogger friends I wasn’t ignoring you, I just couldn’t find you!
Facebook was sporadic, not updating for hours at a time. I know all my friends had not shut down! I felt like I do when making a phone call and no one answers and then I call two more people and they don’t answer either. Where is everybody? Am I the last one on earth? Who in the world will I talk to? Who will read my blog? We’ve all had those thoughts – or at least some of them!
Without all that technology to distract me I had plenty of time to read some more on Stephen King – On Writing which is BTW a fantastic book on writing and his life. I finished Lessons from Ducks by Tammy Robinson. She has some great books out there. And I started The Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline. I always say I am going to write when at these events with H, but writing is not easy when I’m not in my environment. How many of you think this way?
Anyway I’m back and if you haven’t missed me it is because I actually had a couple posts scheduled or you just didn’t notice – which could be the case. haha I love that option and even though I don’t always use it, I know I should.
I was in Troy Alabama for SEUS at Troy University with H. He took a few of his students over for the event. The plus side of this was Andrew attends college there and we were able to visit a little with him and even see him perform with the symphony band and percussion ensemble a couple of times! (And buy him groceries. A busy, busy guy has to eat!)
The morning before we returned home I finally thought to ask Andrew to put his password for the campus in my Kindle Fire so I could at least read and maybe comment on a few blogs. Why didn’t I think of that sooner?
So here’s pictures you may be interested in and it proves I wasn’t just being lazy and ignoring everyone!
To answer the question what to do when technology doesn’t prevail? Read…a lot. And take pictures! 😉 Hope you enjoyed these!
