While Peter attended meetings, I read a book, did some shopping, and fell in love with apple pie cheesecake. It was a healthy reminder that there is more to life than my laptop and smartphone. In fact, it made me rethink how much time I want to spend online outside of work (which has to be done online - I mean, I work for a social media company!).
So, even though I've already cut my blog posts from five days a week to three days a week, you may be seeing even less of me. I've worked through my compulsion that I must.post.daily, and when I woke up at 3 AM this morning and realized that I didn't have a post ready to go up for my three-times-a-week schedule, I actually thought, "who cares?", and snuggled deeper into my warm bed.
In other news, if you ever get a chance to visit Montreal, I can personally recommend the smoked meat sandwiches at Schwartz's Deli (a hole in the wall - but worth the trip) - but be prepared, because they only take cash!
After dinner, trot yourself a couple of blocks over to the St. Denis Rockaberry location and try to pick out just one (enormous) slice of pie or cheesecake from their fantastic cabinet of yumminess. It's a really difficult decision, and the slices are HUGE! Three of us (the hubs, hubs co-worker, and me) split one slice of apple pie cheesecake. Peter and I topped our dessert off with mugs of the best white hot chocolate I have ever had. Well worth the trip (they accept credit cards).
Have you ever been to Montreal?
How do you find a balance between social media and the real world?
