A Hidden Danger of Being a Teacher

I've been absent from the Internet for several days on a self-imposed Internet-free zone - actually it was almost a completely computer-free zone as well. Sometimes I find it very necessary to step back and leave the world behind and focus on just my little house and its inhabitants instead. So that's what I did.

One of the reasons I wanted to have a break from the Internet is that it can suck you dry of time and energy that may be better spent doing something else...and I had other things to do. I have a lot of stuff. Yes, I know it because I see it everyday. Some of it is my personal stuff, my teaching stuff, my kids' stuff...but there is too much!! Tackling this problem however poses a problem because I really don't like to get rid of stuff...and being a teacher has made that worse!
