I was in the outdoor office trolling through Facebook, clicking on links which led to videos, which somehow led to Catherine Dukes-of-Hazard Bach’s website, which led me to her online store where I contemplated whether or not I should buy a pair of her Daisy Duke cut-off shorts, which led me to her bio where I read that her husband committed suicide, which led me to TMZ to find out why, but no one really has an answer so I decided to lighten my mood by seeing what Tom Wopat’s been up to since DOH, which made me realize that old bastard’s been working his ass off in Hollywood while a fuller-figured Catherine Bach’s been seemingly sent out to pasture, which led me to google “Aging Women In Hollywood,” which led to a HuffPo article about women aging out of the business and then I clicked to …

Now, with so many apparatuses out there to keep us continually distracted, there is a direct impact on our sex lives. Since I began blogging I’ve found that I can work around the clock if I don’t set any parameters for myself and I’m certain I haven’t been as attentive to my husband’s needs as I should be. The fact is it’s much easier to engage in online relationships because they don’t require the full attention, focus and energy it takes to maintain an intimate relationship with a partner.
I’ve made a plan for curtailing my constant internet use. Not after 8 p.m. And no more than two hours weekend days. I don’t want my life online to ever become more vital and interesting than my actual life. I’d love to know how you manage your time online and also how you keep your sex life vibrant?
