I would love it as long as it is nice out. I'm an outdoors person and I like to read.

As long as I didn't have to go to school that week I totally could. But since my school is on-line distance ed for right now I wouldn't be able to go without. :)

Electronics are such an everyday part of our lives that we may not even realize we are using them. No light swithes, no home security systems, etc. We woyld all be lost without some form of electrical equiptment.

Sure, no problem, as long as I can keep the stove and refrigerator on. For my husband, it would be impossible because he uses his computer for his job.

i'd survive but i'd probably go out of my mind. practically did at the end of last month when we were without tv/internet for 2 days. now i was busy packing and cleaning for our move so it didn't directly affect me. what drove me crazy was that my kids were bored out of their minds once i was too dark to play outside, and they could not have their normal routine of tv between bath and bedtime. luckily the move was completed and everything was set up at the new house the very first day so the kids have been out of my hair watching cartoons while i have been cleaning and unpacking here. and for myself its nice to have internet (and some free time) to unwind at night

I think I could. Just head down to the lake and fish most of the time. If it was raining and I was stuck inside all day then we would have some problems.

Absolutely, especially if I had several books to read.  The only thing I use daily is my computer, and I can live without that.

We have been out of power for several days at a time due to severe ice storms in the past.  It sure makes for long boring days & cold too in the winter!
Have a wonderful day!

Nope, because I "normally" get on Fusion cash each day and do my daily clicks and my daily email, it is a ritual.It has become part of my daily life!  :wave:
