Every October at The Nesting Place hundreds of people challenge themselves to write and post every day of the month. For some people it’s just a blogging consistency challenge and others choose to write on various facets of one topic. This year I’m joining in.
Though I could certainly use the consistency challenge, I’m going to be writing about what I’m doing to try to beat my mindless internet habit and do more of what I truly enjoy. I’m looking forward to practicing juggling my chores, my fun things(baking, sewing, playing and learning) while including my babies(16 months and 3 months)in a deliberate way without the endless distraction of “just one more” internet thing.
As Ascher has started getting older I am daily aware of how much he watches what I’m doing and wants to do it too and I don’t want him growing up thinking that endless rounds of internet are the only entertainment around. Besides that, I know that I have bunches of things I would be glad to be doing instead. Part of my justification has been that I’m nursing Wilona and tied down anyway, but I know there’s still better stuff I could be doing.
My rule I’ve made myself for the month of October is that I can have my computer open with no limit while Ascher is sleeping and if I want it while he’s awake I have a 30 minute limit for the day. We’ll see what that leads to. I’m hoping it’s something like this.
So, what have I done with more limited internet? (Links to be added as available)
