Well, our family is going dark. We are going for the reduced media program. For 3 days, starting Tuesday we are not going to be using the computer, television, or video games. The phone will be screened. Not that I don't want to talk to you, but its a part of the package. We will probably either answer the phone, or just check messages and return calls. Our intentions are to reconnect as a family and realize how much we depend on these media(plural?) for entertainment. I am hoping things go well. If you know my kids, you know how much they love TV, mostly because I love for them to be watching it, so I can use the computer! Sometimes I use the television to babysit while I take a shower or load the dishwasher, but often its for my own leisure. I have some anxiety, I am a compulsive email checker, message board checker, and my new one, instant messaging. So my angst is that I will have to fight that compulsion to click. I am trying to focus on the purpose of this experiment and look forward to the outcome. I hope that our family can reconnect. That I can put effort into enjoying my children in their little moments each day and spend just a few more minutes giving them my desperately needed attention. So, in conjunction with this project, I will share a layout I did last month for a contest. I had to do a page titled: My Addiction. It might give you some insight into my "problem". I will miss my online buddies. But 3 days really is nothing! So here is my layout.
As part of my Design Team work at Savvy N Sassy, I am able to blog on their blog, so I uploaded a few projects there. Feel free to check them out and leave comments there. I would post them here, but I have a lot of internet stuff to get done.
And one more very important plug: Paper Popsicles is having a sale this week, the prices are already great, so a deal is a deal! Be sure to stop over and see what goodies Melissa has going!
