Actually, I've been saying this all along. But it doesn't stop me from pulling my computer out every time my butt hits a chair. I often think about the ramifications of all this "online-ness" on my kids. When I was their age, a computer at home was so space age! Offices didn't even have them. (I'm giving away my age here!!)
We are a four-computer family. Three of us live here.
How does one balance the changing times and technology with having an actual life?! They are so intertwined now...!
We have instituted what we call "No Screen Sunday" in our home. The first Sunday we tried it, we decided to go to a movie. Oops. Then, as iPhone and Blackberry users, we debated on whether cell phones counted. We learned that you can't go anywhere or do anything and not be accosted by a screen. Even on the bus on my morning commute I am treated to the transit version of the news (in Spanish and English)! Are we really that unable to entertain ourselves?
We have high hopes for this Sunday. In the meantime, I think I'm really going to go try that life thing.....
