So it finally happened: the Shaws are online! We found an internet provider with a reasonable price for us. As of this morning, the internet is at my fingertips—and I’m not at Starbucks, but in my kitchen!
I was afraid having the internet at home would be a time suck and keep me from Westly. Quite the contrary actually. Now during his afternoon naps, I can blog, check my mail, and look up that recipe on Pinterest—all things I used to do on the weekends at Starbucks while Michael watched West. Because I can take care of business during the week, I have more weekend time with my boys.
Well, that’s the plan anyway. I’m pretty disciplined with myself about not having the TV on while Westly is up—my own personal convictions. And I plan to keep the same rule with the internet. His afternoon naps are my TV/internet/writing/me time.
Now excuse me, I need to Google an art lesson.
