Unplugging During the Holidays

I'm not sure about others, but what I am looking forward to the most is unplugging during the holidays. Just a few days of peace and quiet, without checking emails or voicemails. Courts close early tomorrow, most of the city shuts down as people go away for the last week of December, and real emergencies are reserved for hospitals and 911 calls.

Everyone these days seems so attached to their electronic devices, and I'm sure many will want to play with their latest gadgets over the holidays, but just as we try to limit our children's time on Wii or their Nintendos, perhaps we should consider applying some limits upon ourselves. Nothing beats quality time with someone-- uninterrupted by beeps, rings or typing.
