In the Alliende family we have a motto: “Why make things easy when you can make them more difficult“, which is by the way, the complete opposite of the McCann family motto (the McCanns are my husband’s family). So you can imagine the type of advise my kids have received so far.
Today it was too beautiful to stay indoors, and knowing myself, I knew if I fire up the computer, I was going to spend the entire day in front of it. Besides, it is warmer outside my house than inside. I decided to use my handwriting and sketching skills (if you can call them skills), and have an analog slice for today. The only condition that I put on myself was that I couldn’t use anything but my brain and hands. No googling words to double check their spelling or search for synonyms. Lessons learned: surrounded and not an hesitant scratchy sourrended, awkward, not akward, whether and not wether, suspiciously and not suspisiously. Should have I used skip or skipped? What other word can I use instead of coloring? And probably a lot more. It was harder than I thought, but I did it!
PS: My phone, my computer and the internet are making my brain really lazy. I should write more often without them.
