  • Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes........I live in the woods of Maine, we lose power left and right! Last time was 6 days just before Christmas, and come to find out, they had to manually shut our breaker because it was interferring with the others that weren't working! I also camp alot, and here's one for ya, I don't have a cell phone!! It's the best silence I have had in 11 years!

  • OMG, no,no,no! Please don't take my electronics away!!! Then all I would have is housework. It would be dreadful, awful and depressing.

  • I absolutely could and in fact do sometimes. I recently cancelled my cell phone account, closed down my FaceBook page and don't use any type of video game system. My favorite way to spend any time that I have is to read an honest to goodness BOOK...LOL. Although, I have been begging my hubby for a Kindle for Christmas, so then I guess I would be addicted to that electronic....HA HA!

  • I think I could do one day. I remember when none of that existed.

  • Yep.. I have just cause I did not feel the need to check anything as I had the night before.

    I don't watch much cable....but I can go days without watching that.

    My son on the other hand would freak without Disney.....internet game sites and his Xbox......but would find something to do like me to pass the time.

    BUT if I had to go a week without it...I'd be jonesing to check email...etc.......and CAFE MOM!!!! LOL

  • I don't have cable or internet at home, so yeah. I have to use it at work, so the day couldn't be a workday ; ) . I could live without my phone and texting for a day, I have before. I don't own or play video games, so yeah, I could live without those too : )

  • no b/c part if it is my job

    Answer by Bubbie0809 at 5:14 PM on Oct. 12, 2010

  • Sure, I usually don't check my email but once a week or so.
    I have gone more than a day w/o internet with no issue...
    I don't have a cell phone or Wii or XBox and don't enjoy playing the PS3...

    The only electronic thing I would have issue going w/o would be the TV, cause the quiet would get to me. But I've done that many times too...
