No Tech (Long) Weekend

At the beginning of the year, my husband decided to institute “no computer weekends” into his life. Once a month, he turns off his computer at home and dedicates the weekend to making sure he is doing the hands on projects and relaxation that he really enjoys (and sometimes really requires) in order to recharge and renew. I have not joined him on those weekends, but with the upcoming 2015 New Quilters Blog Hop, I decided it might be best to take a break and find a bit of recharging and renewal myself.


Over this long holiday weekend, I am going to be disconnected entirely: a no tech long weekend. I will not even be sewing! Instead, I will be dedicating my time to my husband and family. I have a few posts that are scheduled during my absence, but I will not be responding to comments during this time. I will be back online on Wednesday morning, and I look forward to reengaging with you then.

    The no computers bit sounds great, that does often happen round here, though partly from a no time to be on there perspective! But no sewing even?! Aaaaagh! Have a lovely break and come back feeling very refreshed XXX

    Good for you and your husband. I have turned my computer off on the weekends and it is heaven. Need to do it more often. Enjoy your weekend!

    I talked with my husband about this at breakfast! I think we’re going to try to do something similar. I’m excited to see how it goes! :) Have a lovely weekend!

    I’m so excited that you’re taking the weekend to yourself, I know it will be a struggle to leave your inbox alone but the break away from the computer and the phone will be just what you might not have known you needed. We’ll keep the Internet warm while you’re gone hehe.

    Wow I admire you, I find myself getting a little twitchy if I’m away too long. But I did start a cross stitch project this week, with the idea of spending some time away from the computers as much as possible. I figure even if I only get away for a couple of hours it is better than nothing. I hope you have a wonderful relaxing and totally awesome weekend.

  9. Excellent idea, as usual. I wonder if my 18 year old would be able to survive without his phone, computer and video games? Hmm…might be good for him.

  10. I really like this idea. The only time we are truly “no tech” is whenever we take a cruise. I think I might need to institute this concept, if I can figure it out for work (which is nights and weekends mostly).

    Such a great idea. I will need to do this with my family more than once this summer. :)
