The week that was...

"My name is JackstaB and Im a Social Media-aholic. Its been 6 days and 7 hours since I last logged in."
So my computer has been out of action for the week. And I just cant believe how much I rely on being logged in to the internet. Need a recipe..I google it. Need to figure out who that actor is from that movie..I google it. Bored...I log in and browse. Need to know whats going on in my friends lives... I facebook. Need know how my blogland friends are....you get the picture. The week left me thinking how much we rely on being logged on, both hubby and I. I never realized how addicted I was...like a media junkie. In our house if the computer screen isn't on the TV is, or theres the newspaper or magazine...theres always something... constantly bombarding my senses with information. Hubster and I were talking...what did people do without TV and computer? When do we just chill out and just BE?

So what did I do all week with all my glorious free time? I cleaned. I sorted. I met with real life people. I baked. But I REALLY missed you guys. I missed reading your blogs. I missed updating my FB status. I missed sharing my photos of our Queens birthday holiday. And I log on to find everyones VLOGing! I missed being in the loop! So my week without a computer has made me realise that perhaps my life is a tad out of balance. So like a true junkie says Im gonna cut down! I promise!
So since I was rudely interupted by my computer carking it last Monday trying to upload my pics...here they are today. We took a lovely drive out to Ocean Beach (Because Hubby knew the swell and surf was huge) and we had a cup of tea and chocolate fudge brownies (PJs recipe) at the beach. Happy belated-not-actual-birthday to the Queen.





And it so good to be back!Who knows I might figure out a vlog post for you all next time
This is JackstaB Signing out :)

A week offline really can be good for the soul. I am seriously considering deleting my FB account. For so many reasons. But I most defiantly couldn't be offline altogether. OB's looks awesome. And if its any consolation its queens birthday weekend here.
