Hibernation

Jan. 5th, 2004 | 02:50 pm

I spent the last 2 weeks in, for me, Internet Hibernation. I logged in enough not to have a big backlog when I returned from Work, and to make sure nothing blew up. I checked a few sites a few times, and that was about it. No postings here (obviously). Not much time spent reading anymore. No more than an hour online, and that was spent gathering sites about building a mosaic table top.

This major break through all started a month ago, during Jane's birthday party. Without even noticing I went 24 hours without logging in. 24 hours! This was simply unprecedented by me, previously only achieved by a wedding (mine) and a death (my mom's). That was it. I had to log in to tell everyone my kids were born, after all.

Then a few weeks ago we took a trip out of town. I was offline for 3 days off and lived to tell about it. I even stumbled across an Internet Cafe of sorts, and managed to restrain myself.

The trick now is it find a happy medium. Somewhere between taking a complete hiatus and checking my email every 12 seconds like a lab rat attached to a joy buzzer.
