#WEverb11: #19 and #20

#19
Tell us about your biggest belly laugh in 2011

Just one? Not possible. 99% of the moments I spent with my husband I am doubled over with laughter. Nothing I can share on the internet for fear of embarrassing him (we call this "marriage secrets") but he is hilarious. I did good.

I'd have to say seeing The Book of Mormon on Broadway was my biggest belly laugh. It was the funniest, most shocking thing I have ever seen. It also made me smile and feel warm and fuzzy inside. I can't explain it.

 How has technology affected your life (positively or negatively) in 2011? Do you want this to continue for 2012?

Oh man. Technology. I fear sounding like an old ninny but somedays, I wish to chuck technology out the window. I'm old enough to say "I remember when we didn't have this/that/the other thing" and I'm proud of that! Do I depend on technology a lot? Sure. Do I need it? Ugh, yes, I guess so. Can I live without it? Yes. I really think I can. I have it so I use it but somedays unplugging would be nice!

I think I/we are too connected to our technology. I want to institute a tech free day where we put the phones in a drawer and give each other 5 minutes of uninterrupted eye contact.

I also love learning new things which I get to do by being connected. I got a Kindle this summer and I've read more books in the past 4 months then I have read in the past 4 years. That is true. Sad, but true.

In 2012, I'd like to take a step back, limit my usage and dive into more useful hobbies, get more things done around the house and put my focus back on memories instead of "things."
