I am living in the 1990’s

Do you remember how life was back in the 90’s? I know I am getting old when I say that life was much simpler back then. Yesterday and part of today, I feel like I am back in the 90’s.

My husband and I are visiting family in Washington DC this weekend. My brother in-law just had a baby last week. I must say that he is as cute as he can be.

Well, we are staying over at my in-law’s place and we drive over to my brother in-law’s place to see the baby. We went there yesterday and on the way back, I forgot my phone at their place. They live an hour away so we didn’t go back to get the phone as we will be visiting them today.

So I have been phone free for 24hours. What an amazing experience. I don’t know how people lived back in the day. This experience has made me realize how dependent I am on my phone. My phone has people’s numbers, my email, Facebook, Twitter…not to mention all the useless surfing I do.

On the way back, in the car, my husband gave me his phone and said “here, you can goof off on this” (he was driving; otherwise I don’t think he would be so generous). But I told him “No, I want to embrace this. Let’s see how I do without a phone for 24hours.”

Honestly, it hasn’t been that bad. Part of the reason is that I have been with family and I am spending time with them. Wait, wasn’t that the reason I came here in first place? Hahaha…it is so easy for us to forget the simple things in life and get caught up with the virtual life.

What would you do if you were caught without your devices for a length of time?
