Overheard: Email

I have written about Other American Family in Mexico. They moved from our same city in USA to their house in Mexico this summer. They have 3 boys (5, 6, and 8) and our kids have gone to school together and been in activities together for several years. It was not a coincidence that we decided to move to same place at same time. It has been so GREAT for our families to have this adventure together.

Other American Mommy says last night "I check my email once per month just to stay on top of things."

Ba da bing! The irony cracked us up.

For those of us who check email every 2 seconds just to stay on top of things, this statement is - well - funny and enviable. Other American Mommy has so embraced the Mexico way of things: Manana!

Once a month? I couldn't handle a day!

Hey! It's your bro-in-law. Funny during our hurricane I felt very out of touch with no electricity, satellite TV and no internet. Quite amazing how dependent we can get on technology.

I'm with Nancy. I will probably need intervention to be weaned from my electronic umbilical cord when I head south.
