Your phone, laptop, tab, ipad and desktop are dead. Will you make it through a normal working day and evening? What would you miss the most? Post-a-Day 2011

Posted on

I’m a stay-at-home-mom so my need for electronic communication devices is minimal. Until Eva needs a microchip implanted in her skull so I know where she is at all times, I won’t really require them at all. She’s only 20 months old so I won’t be looking into that for at least another 11 years or so.

I would be able to go about my day in peace. No one calling to chat, no reason to consult the internet on some question I have, no emails to reply to. I would have a lot more time on my hands, I know that. In fact, I should TRY to do without these things a few times a week just to be able to get more done. With Summer time coming, I’ll be doing without many of my electro-friends simply due to the fact that we’ll be outside more. We have no air conditioning so daily trips to the beach are a must.

I would miss my computer if I didn’t have it at all but for ONE DAY nothing about my day would change much. My cell phone I would miss the most. I really only talk to my husband on it but we stay in almost constant contact…..perhaps I could do without that too.

And let me say I was totally joking about the microchip. We’ve already decided to lock her in the attic and home school her.

I've got a lot to say. I guess that's why most people start a blog, right? They've got thoughts, ideas, gripes, whatever, that they feel they must share with the world. Kind of egotistical, no? I mean, who's really going to read this? Am I so interesting that I can hold your attention over the rest of the world wide web? Strange to think that it could be possible. If you've read this far, you should know a little 'about me' as this portion is titled. Ok so, I live in Central Italy with my husband and daughter. He's an Italian citizen, I'm an American citizen which makes our baby...doomed, as well has a dual citizen. The cultures do more than clash. They kick, bite, and beat the crap out of eachother. You have to have a very worldly outlook to marry someone from another country. People around the world are raised very differently from one another. What's perfectly normal in one area of the world is cause for major concern in another. I stand in front of the fan to cool off when it's August and the heat is insane and the humidity keeps you sticky 24 hours a day. My husband is convinced I've some sort of superhuman powers to not have caught some serious illness by doing this. Sound senseless, it is. Italians are full of ridiculous beliefs that hold no ground outside the land of make-believe and nut-cases. But who am I to tell anyone that the sayings of their great-great-great Aunt Maria are bullshit? So I just listen and nod. Well that brings you a bit up to speed on my current situation, yeah? Ok so, read me blog now kiddies. Toodaloo!
