Hawaii, briefly

April 13, 2009 at 10:35 pm (the fam)

I went 6 days with no Facebook, no Twitter, no Reader, no Blogger, and only two checks of one of my four email accounts. Besides chatting with C and Mr. Biscotti (the boy I’ve been spending a little time with who is sweet like an Italian cookie), I completely disconnected.

It. Was. Glorious.

But the thing about shutting out the world for a while is that it all comes rushing back in with a vengeance when you finally let it.

I’m going to leave the Hawaii recap at that in part because I have a few posts stored up in my head and in part because I think it’s cruel to talk about paradise when people are stuck in places where it could still snow. I’ll just leave you with my nightly view.

    I love checking out. Whenever we go to my parents’ beach house, I rarely check email, no cell phone service and no TV (well, there’s a TV, but it’s only good to watch DVDs). I am always ready to reconnect with the world at the end, but boy do I enjoy my time away. Good for you for being able to do it! So many people can’t do it.

    It DID snow here overnight.

    Madness.

    In some ways, I dislike vacations because when you come back your vacation mood is gone in 3 seconds and everything seems even worse than it did before you got away from it! Grrr.

    OH MY GOD you suck right now! 🙂 I’m sooo glad you got to go to Hawaii. And insanely jealous because yes, we’re still getting snow warnings here.

    Sounds absolutely lovely. I miss Kona.

    So glad you had such a wonderful time!

    I’d take a little snow right now. It was 90+ degrees today in San Francisco.
