Laptop Withdrawal

It’s been less than an hour since I dropped my Mac off at the Apple store and I can already feel myself encountering the early stage of withdrawal. It’s sad to say but much of my day job involves staring at a computer screen. You’d think I’d want to avoid the computer at all costs once I get home, but instead I find myself searching for recipes, trolling personal finance blogs, or catching up on email. When the Apple employee said, “It’ll take two days to fix your Mac.” I very loudly exclaimed, “How long?” My voice was so loud, in fact, that I think I surprised myself. Am I really that addicted to my computer?

Regardless I don’t think it’s a good sign. I plan to spend the next two days catching up on a book I’ve been meaning to read and actually heading outside, if it ever stops raining, to exercise.

Maybe it's not so much your lap top but it's the internet you can't get away from. I'm the same way. :)

I know what you mean. When I go on vacation, I find that it is very difficult to stay detached from technology. Don't be surprised if you spend longer at work for the next couple of days :)
