Right there to click refresh to see if I have any new emails or comments, or to just "quickly" check Google reader to see what new, amazing things y'all have put on your blogs. And all those little checking ins take a huge chunk out of my day. I felt so good on Friday as well because I felt like I was in control of my day and what I wanted to accomplish, instead of the computer in charge of me. I couldn't believe how much I'd accomplished by 10 a.m. I felt more tuned in to my kids as well. I was more present and connected to what they were doing and saying because I wasn't so distracted with what was going on in cyberspace.
Was it hard? It was really hard. I think I made it to around 6 p.m. (I just committed to the day, right?) So, yea, I'm a little embarrassed with how addicted I am. But, I've re-committed myself to turning the computer off in the times that I've designated to be computer-free so I'm not even tempted to push "refresh." I'm really wanting to work on this and needed this eye opener. So, thanks, Kimba for the challenge~it was what I needed.
And, speaking of eye openers~ I saw in the Michaels ad this week that their craft boxes are 3 for $5. This is the cheapest I've seen them and you may want to pick up a few~I'll even be showing you a fun little project with them that's kind of "outside the box." Ha ha. I'm a nerd and it's late. Here is the photo from the flyer:
Have a great Monday!
