For those of you who don't know, my internet access comes from a little T-Mobile stick thing-a-ma-bob I can plug in like a USB. And because I've been so online absorbed the past few weeks and getting next to nothing done on my WIP, I told the hubby to take the internet with him to work yesterday so I would be FORBIDDEN to go online.
Here was my day without the internet:
Got dressed. (A rare occurrence, btw)
Got the kids up.
Pulled out WIP.
Made it two paragraphs in and I clicked the internet tab.
Oh right... I don't have that today.
Alt Tab back to WIP.
Kids start beating each other.
Put them both in separate time out corners.
Sit back down.
Pull up internet tab.
Oh, gosh frickin' darn it! I forgot. I don't have that today.
Can't think of anything to write.
Pull out book I'm critiquing.
Kids crawl out of time out and start raiding the cookie jar.
Get up and stop the sugar high before it begins.
Notice the kitchen is a disaster.
Grab computer and listen to music while I clean.
Click refresh on internet tab in between each dish.
That's right. I DON'T HAVE THAT TODAY.
Get pissed at myself and type up a crap paragraph in WIP.
Type another crap paragraph.
Attempt to chuck computer across the room without actually letting go of it.
Put kids away for nap.
Pull up internet tab.
Turn on Lego Harry Potter.
Beat all storyline levels, but can't find some locked characters.
Pull out computer to use Google.
X-Box freezes while I'm playing.
Pull up WIP.
Type a crap paragraph.
Play Just Dance.
Play more Just Dance.
Shower off the sweat from playing Just Dance.
Get kids out of their room from their nap.
Get snack for kids.
Pull out WIP and write 2 pages before clicking the internet tab to look up something on Google Maps. (for WIP, I swear!)
Stupid effing... why the heck did I do this to myself??
Count down minutes till hubs gets home.
Eat a granola bar.
Chew on my nails and look out the window.
Answer phone call from the hubs, telling me he'll be home an hour late.
Start laundry 'cause I'm pissed.
Empty out hubs' pockets.
Look who forgot to take the internet stick to work today.
And look who had access to it all day, and didn't know it.
At least I wrote a little bit, right?
