I will admit that I am an internet addict. I appreciate the tremendous resource and speed of information. Sometimes, I waste time on the computer.

I'm sure that no one else does.

I had the privilege of spending the last two weeks of the year in Florida with my family. What a blessing. It was great to spend a lot of time with my wife and kids. The 70 degree weather every day wasn't bad either.

One bonus was that I disconnected. I was off line for about ten days. No e-mail. No facebook. No news. No sports updates. No blogs.

It was good to be away. But I am glad to be back too. Life is not meant to be lived disconnected from people.

Anyone else ever feel that they need a break from the internet?

Me, addicted? No way. I'm actually glad that taking care of my kids keep me away from the computer somewhat, otherwise I'd be on it all day long, though it does allow me a window to the outside world and I am very appreciative for that as a stay-at-home mom. I do like taking a break from the internet, especially if on vacation!!

Good to know that I am not the only addict in the church.

I took a voluntary break for a couple weeks around the holidays. It was so nice.
