It was suggested by a friend that I take a day off from the blog.  Actually, she suggested that I stay off the computer all together on Saturdays.

Well, okay, it was suggested by God first.  Sort of.  I mean who knows if He would have made an exception for Hulu if you could have gotten better reception in the desert back then.

But I was heading for computer addiction before the blog.  And now I’m on it all the time. If I’m not writing, I’m checking in to see how many people love me, I mean checked the blog in the last hour.

So in addition to the relatively poor Sabbath-keeping we already do on Saturdays, I’m adding “No computer time.” Until 2011.  No promises after that.

About Tara Edelschick

Right now, Tara is on sabbatical in Costa Rica. She is sleeping more, and exercising and flossing every day for the first time in her life. She is enjoying her husband, her boys, and Nafisa (the daughter she never had) more than she ever has. And she is learning to rest in the arms of the one who doesn't rank you based on how many things you can cross off your list at the end of the day. Follow her on Twitter@TaraWonders.

    But didn't the Sabbath actually begin when the sun set at 5:41 pm?

    If not, then I'm reading email at least until midnight.

      Actually, the Sabbath begins at sundown Friday, and ends 1 hour after sundown Saturday. Good luck staying off the computer (and phone and TV) for THAT whole time!!
