Well, I was more productive, and life was a little quieter. But it was also a little smaller. Since I've gotten the internet, I've reconnected with people who I never would have heard from otherwise, I've been able to do a TON of research for numerous books, I've gotten answers to many questions (both important and unimportant), found a recipe for my son's 1st birthday with no sugar, and not least, I've used Google and Yahoo maps to visit places I never would have seen otherwise. It's wonderful to have more ready answers than our mothers did for all of our parenting questions. I love so much getting to know people from Ireland (always wanted to go!), Germany, Canada, Egypt, Israel! Admittedly, there are many things that I wish I didn't have to deal with. Just the other day, my one year old saw a dirty (read:BAD) picture. But once you figure out how to deal with those things, the Internet can be AMAZING! So, all told, love it!
