[Whew! I'm back online...and a new fan in my harddrive doesn't make nearly the noise it always did before.]
Glad you are giving this a try, Pb!
Something different has been happening to me...it's as though I am not particularly 'focussed', but having better results than ever before. Somehow I refer back to all I have learned more easily, and feel confident that this will continue for the rest of the month.
I haven't yet 'turned off' the TV, but find I am looking at the the 'oldies' that were made when I was a girl, and noticing the differences between then and now. And I don't just sit and stare for hours.
Maybe doing without the computer for a while helped.
You have a good reason for trying something different!
And I love the word "pineapple".
You've got me thinking about posting a list of words I really like.
