Off the Path

     Well, this is the last day before my silent retreat.  Yes, I am doing it on purpose.  I am not being punished.  I am "going off the grid" by choice.  The only exceptions are checking my email once a day about jobs and answering the phone IF it is a potential job or my son.  I am excited but also a little nervous about whether I will 1. be able to keep everything turned off, including the TV and the radio, and 2. get everything out of this time that I am hoping to get.  I guess we will all find out this weekend when I post again. 
     I have lots to do today before my self-imposed exile tomorrow.  I have to talk to my parents, and I have to run to the store (even though I don't really feel like it) to grab the necessities.  I also have to put in as many applications as I can for the week.  There is one other thing that might derail me this week; I am waiting to hear from the doctor about my back x-ray.  But, overall, I am feeling pretty positive about the whole thing, and I am anticipating getting started. 
  Today's post may not be as entertaining as yesterday's, but I hope it may inspire some of you to give this a try. 


  1. I admire you! I'm excited to hear about it! My hubby is out of the country for the next 2 weeks and I don't know if I could go off the grid before he gets home!

  2. Audra, check out my next post. It didn't go quite as planned, but it wasn't bad for a first attempt.
