Our media blackout is, I think, a good thing and already bearing fruit as far as the family is concerned. It's tough, and it's inconvenient sometimes, but it isn't the end of the world. I've read a lot of books, and played with V and the baby a lot more than (at least it seems like a lot more than) I used to, or than I think I would have if I had the internet to distract me. It's nice, and the only thing that might be a bit of a trick is gathering what I need to "do music" with the co-op kids starting on Friday. But it might be simpler than I'm making it out to be, so I decided not to stress until after the first class is over and I see where I stand. Complexity-wise. And such.
But the main thing I've been thinking about lately is that my sweet little sister is going to the convent in a week. I wish I could be there.
