Before the Internet

I found an interesting question this afternoon, that I thought I'd throw out there..."What did you do before there was internet?"  What a question, right?

But really, what DID you do before the internet?  What did I do before getting on the internet...and that question made me think!

The things that I can remember doing to replace the time that I spend online, included:  housework, reading, writing letters (by hand, not typed), crocheting, watching TV, spending more time outdoors...!

Wow--right?  What does that say about my time now?  I still do most of those things, but in limited quantities.  

What I don't do is read whatever book that I have at the moment during the day...that is saved for at night, to read in bed.   I haven't crocheted in years, and to be honest, most of my letters are now typed and printed from my computer vs writing them by hand.

I don't watch much TV at all and when I do it's at night, or I watch TV programs online.  (Where we live now, we aren't able to get cable and antenna only gives us 3 channels.)

But it is an interesting question...what did YOU do before the internet?


  1. I did housework, watched TV, spent more time outside, read books and talked with friends on the phone. :)

    1. I guess that's what we all did...! LOL
