3. link-up & spread the word
4. last but not least - have fun!

Here are my answers to this weeks questions:

--Questions & Answers--

1.) How connected are you to your phone? Do you always have it on you?

I have it with me all the time but it is ancient so I only use it to call or text.

2.) Would you be able to be away from your computer for an entire week?

If it was just a normal week, at home, heck no! But if we were away on vacation at the beach, yeah easily.

3.) If you had to get rid of one of the following, which would it be and why? Cell phone, computer, or TV?

TV - not because I don't watch TV, I'm pretty much a TV addict, but because I was all my TV shows on my laptop.

4.) Do you think you could ever live "off the grid"?

I don't know. Probably not. At times I think it might be nice, but then I have to be brutally honest and admit that I like technology and all that it enables too much. Plus since we live very far away from most of our family it is essential for keeping in touch.  If the whole entire world were to become cut-off like in Revolution I guess you would get used to it and life might have been simpler in some ways before the rise of technology but you can't stuff the genie back in the bottle, can you.

5.) Tell us about a time you disconnected from technology/the world and how you dealt with it. Was it good or bad?

I don't think it has ever happened in the past, say 15 years of my life. Not totally anyway. Even on vacation there has always been TV to check & keep up with what is going on in the world. Plus I also read newsletters as much as possible to stay up to date even when on vacation.


  1. omg, this would be tough for me. I am so attached to my phone!!!!

  2. Yeah, family would be my main reason for not running away to the middle of nowhere!

  3. It's easy to let go of technology when away on vacation, I find! When I went to Cuba, I left my phone at home and only used the resort computer room to email home two or three times. It was kind of nice!

  4. Nope no, no way. Not happening. NOOOO!

  5. Good point since you live so far away from home.

    I thought the questions were fun this week!

    Shelley only has one more day of school....YAY!!! This week can't end fast enough for me.


  6. I would give up TV too, since I have Netflix and if I have to watch a show I can watch it online :) We haven't had cable for almost six months now and I still don't miss it at all ha ha.
    I would love a disconnected vacation, oh it sounds so wonderful!
    Thanks for linking up with us! Hope you are having an awesome week so far :)

  7. the only times i have given up technology has been while traveling and then i'm usually so busy that i don't mind!

  8. Hey this is a real cool web site

    My homepage :: i'm having trouble getting pregnant

  9. Great answers, you have already read mine to these questions I like how each of us are both different and the same............

  10. I agree with you - I might be able to give up technology if everyone else did, too. Otherwise, I'd just be the loner girl who had no way to keep in touch with people. :o) It's the way we live now - you gotta accept it and just try not to let it take over your life!
