Technology has always been compelling to me in that it helps save time and maximize efficiency. Now that I’m a mom, surviving without the shortcuts created through tech is inconceivable. Can you imagine not having printables to make your life easier? Playing a record on a turntable while you’re on the treadmill? Or having to handwrite a draft copy, edit it and then re-write in your finest script? I actually remember doing all of these things, and take GREAT pleasure with each new technological development!
To say my life is crazy busy is a massive understatement, especially these days with kids, schoolwork, my work, and juggling household tasks. Keeping up, let alone getting ahead, sometimes seems impossible. I have a phone, on which I run through my schedule, a tablet to keep the kids entertained, and my laptop to pull out when I have a spare moment to work. My purse is the size of a small suitcase and hauling it around is a real pain in my…shoulder.
We always tend to do back to school at the last minute, and not because I’m lazy. It’s more that I can’t possibly bear to let go of summer.
