The truth is, I don’t think it’s possible for either my husband or myself to completely unplug for an entire week or even a weekend. I was finishing up a blog tour and needed to be able to run promotions and check emails, and my husband had his own stuff at work he needed to keep up with – plus... you know – baseball scores.

Keep up with what's going on in cyberspace is sort of like laundry. Yes that’s right – laundry. It’s just going to keep piling up, so you might as well try to keep up with it. Don’t you hate all that laundry you have to do when you get back from vacation? Wouldn't it be easier to do it a little bit each day? No, this is not a metaphor, we had a washer/dryer in the condo we stayed in and did in fact do laundry – well my husband did – while I caught up with emails. Yes, I’m married to an awesome man.
In the end, we all had a great vacation. The laptop only came out early in the morning and late at night, and for the most part, the phones were kept to a minimum. It wasn’t a complete unplugging, but it worked for us. ... Check out this great picture I took with my iPhone!
