Day 106: A Day Off The Grid

I am on my phone or computer 25 hours a day. Usually it is for work, but many times I find myself using technology just to pass time looking up song lyrics, movie spoilers or Odibe McDowell's batting average for the 1987 Texas Rangers. I am also guilty of texting my friends even though my wife is sitting right next to me. This is just insane. I know I have to make an effort to put down the phone and really cherish the free time I have with my wife and daughter. So this post is going to be short and sweet because once I finish it, I am not going to be using my cell phone or computer (and very little tv) for the entire day for my random act of kindness. I am going to go off the grid, and no one will be able to find me (unless you know my address, in which case, I might not be home). We are, as a family, going to go for a walk, do some shopping, maybe Bed Bath & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time. A pretty nice little Sunday.


  1. That is the most wonderful and best acts of yours.

    1. I totally agree! We believe service starts in the home, it makes for a very happy family!


  2. Yeah this is something more should try out!

  3. This is the best news of my day. I am guilty of doing the same with my computer and phone too. I enjoy reading your blog and learned so many ways where I can make a difference in this world. Great job.


  4. Spending quality time with your family is the most important practice in the world. It opens up our mind to think and make healthier decisions in spite of our constant human tendencies to really enjoy new and exciting technology.

    By the way, feel free to check out my blog post for today, which is "Help Your Family". You will enjoy it.

  5. What did we do before cell phones and social media, oh that's right, we spoke face to face with each other. Some old fashioned things are still worth while.

  6. happens a lot, sometimes i end up doing it and you are not the only one to do it
