I did a rare thing this weekend. I ended up with Sunday and Monday off, not Monday and Tuesday as normal, and, well...
I didn't log into WoW. Not once.
This is a first for me. In fact, it's a first in the 3 years since I started playing. Usually every waking moment I do NOT have to spend cleaning (stop laughing, I at least do the dishes and laundry!), working, running errands, paying bills, etc. for the last three years has usually been filled with World of Warcraft. I have six 85's to prove it, too. And a Kingslayer title on my main, Hearthyn. And 6/7 normal in Firelands.
So, what did I do this weekend? Well, I rediscovered movies. I actually struck up a conversation with my boyfriend, Mark. I even walked outside, in sunlight and everything, and went OUT for a whole day!
I rarely even checked in with Facebook or Google+. In other words, other than checking emails from my new smartphone, I basically UNPLUGGED for the weekend.
I call it Shannon Unplugged.
And I have to say, it was WONDERFUL!
But I miss WoW. I miss my rogue I'm leveling. I miss raiding, and work isn't going to let me do much of that any time soon.
and I bought Plants vs Zombies for Android. (Who wants to really unplug anyway, right? And yes, I have the WoW Armory app, too!)
Have a great week, and don't forget to unplug now and then. Even if it's only a little bit.

Tuesday, September 20, 2011
Let me apologize. I got caught up in training at work last week and completely forgot about Tuesday Haiku. So, here is a double shot:
Cinnamon spice dreams,
The harvest moon entices
Falling autumn leaves.
Companion at my side and
Together we rest.
Training is over now. I should be back to blogging. Have a great week!
