I won't be able to do everything the way she does it, but the plan for right now is: no television all day (what? no Weather Channel in the morning as I get dressed? How will I know what to wear? GAAAH!!!11Eleventy!!!!!). No radio either. I have my appointment calendar on Google Calendar, so you all will just have to trust that I'm not facebooking and twittering the day away (you'd know about the Twitter if you follow me there, just sayin'). I will answer email between noon and 1 pm when I am usually having my lunch; Birdman will have to check his email then also. At 5 pm I will shut down the computer. I have clients until 7 pm so I have to keep the phone on until at least then, in case they get lost trying to find me (I work from home and the street signs are largely missing in my neighborhood, so there you go).
Eventually I will try not to have clients after 4 pm, and everything will shut down then and we will have a Tech-Free dinner as well (grill out or have salads or some other meal not requiring the use of an indoor appliance).
I see card games, board games, croquet, catching fireflies and walks around the neighborhood in our future - more so than at present.
Will this work? Will my children mutiny? Do you do tech-free evenings?
