This post is a double-edged sword, because today is National Unplugging Day.
Yes, there really is such a thing. However, if you are observing this already, then you would not be reading my blog on Friday, March 9th. If you are reading, then at least wait until you get to the end of the blog, then unplug!
“This holiday consists of a 24 hour period from sundown to sundown, to unplug, unwind, relax and do things other than using today’s technology, electronics, and social media. Read more here.
In the hustle and bustle of life, it is not always easy to unplug. We are a social media-driven society. To think of not checking your phone, iPad, desktop, or laptop for an email or a text or the latest Facebook post just goes against the grain. I mean, it is almost unthinkable and seemingly would be an unforgiveable offense to not respond to the latest meme your BFF leaves you about a cat.
The last few days have been difficult for our family as we face a health crisis of an older relative. It is events like this that help us to remember how short life truly is and that more time should be spent with those we love.
I am keeping this short as I close by recommending that even if you don’t unplug for 24 hours – at least unplug for a little while and spend time with family and friends.
When tomorrow rolls around, then you can call me at 307-286-0396 and we will help find you the right home.

So this was a big fail… maybe I should pick another day as a makeup day.
Never fail only learn! It is very difficult to unplug in our plugged in world. Next time try an hour at a time.
