Last week we were on vacation. I didn’t tell you we were going.
There’s a reason for that, as I explained last year after our family vacation, in a Tech Talk article at CatholicMom:
We just didn’t want to let the whole world know that nobody was home at our house. It’s a safety thing.
You might think that if you mark your Facebook posts “friends” instead of “public” that you’re safer. And you are. But you never know who’s looking over your friends’ shoulders. As for Twitter and Instagram, everything you tweet and ‘gram is broadcast for the whole world to see.
And it’s not like we have a common last name. So we chose the “better to be safe than sorry” route this vacation. My photos never did make it to Instagram. That’s OK.
I just pulled the vacation photos from my camera’s memory card this morning. It’ll take a while to go through them, but I do hope to share more of the beauty we experienced.
As for the tweets, I’ll bet you didn’t even miss them.
I actually stayed unplugged (no cell phone except for the camera function, no Internet, no text messages, no email) for over 7 days. No, I didn’t get the shakes! I read 7 books, played board games, ate too much fancy food, admired scenery, napped, and stayed out of the sun.
Good times. Even without Instagram.
