Stretched a little thin.

This post will probably be a bit on the short side. I'm feeling stretched a little thin lately. I have so many things that I feel like I "have" to do or check on or etc that the things that really matter are going by the wayside. I need to take inventory of what I have going on, what I can give up (and when), and really turn to what's important to me.

I've written (a lot) about how we, as a family, struggle with having the TV on too much or checking our emails (and facebook, and online message boards, and real-life mommy group) 100,000 times a day. Okay, it's mostly just me who is wanting/wondering/checking online all day.

But, anyways, I am really going to try and make an effort to cut back on those things. I don't think Beanie is going to turn into some delinquent child because she watches TV, but I would like to cut it down (and me cut my online time down). It's important for us as a family.

I don't think anything earth shattering is going to change if I don't check my facebook 3 times a day (yea, like I really check it only three times...it's probably more!) or don't respond to an email within hours of getting it.

Really. I just need to step back and get things in check. Take my life back from the computer so to speak.

  1. I know what you mean...I hate to admit it but I'm totally addicted to some of the sites I frequent.

    I decided that after the fall shows are over (because you know we already started them and couldn't possibly stop in the middle) that we are cancelling the cable *gasp* I don't know what I'll do without my Real Housewives of OC or Project Runway. But I always feel so guilty after I've vegged out in front of the tv for hours and I hate it. So we're taking the plunge. We may all go crazy, I don't know.

    I do know that on days when the tv is off and I stay away from the computer I get sooooo much more done. I also don't ignore my kids nearly as much ;)
