400

Happy 400th post to me! Wow! Im glad I am still here blogging away after all this time.

For the past few days I was on a trip, more of business than of leisure. I had loose ends to tie up and family to see. It was a quality trip, lots done in a short amount of time, especially thanks to my big sister who has helped us a lot over the past many months.

Due to my trip being short, I really didn't want to spend too much time on the computer, I needed to be busy hugging and playing with my nieces and nephews...and working. I have to say, it was REALLY nice to take a break from the media. I sat down this morning and scrolled through Facebook posts....I really wasn't overjoyed to be back on there. I checked in with my blog reader update and didn't feel really enlightened by what I read. It was nice to check in with people I care about and enjoy reading about, but, after I was done, I was kinda like, meh. I also noticed I get hardly any quality email. A few notes from a friend or two, but most of it was the junk email I subscribe to.

This was all a great eye-opener. I don't really need all this technology and media. Meh. I think I am going backwards, scaling back on the computer. I want to use it for fun graphic design projects, my personal blog space...which is mine. I get to do my thing, my way. I like that. So Im looking forward to some changes...I blame the red and orange bursts of fall sprinkling my mountain views...The season is here, my favorite one of all, and Im excited to see it in this new place.

I have been thinking about giving up FB...but them I really do enjoy seeing what others are up to. I think my goal is to maybe just check in for a a few minutes every few days or something. It is such a time waster!!

Congrats on 400 posts!!:)

Hey lovely! I feel ya. I have been taking as much time away from the computer as possible. I went from spending 8+ hours on a computer to maybe 15 mins a day. Feels GREAT!!

Miss you dearly, I hope things keep going well, and the fall isn't too short.

*hug*

WOAH! Holy Glitch Bat Man! So, this comment posted a million times because I clicked on "Post Comment" and nothing happened for thirty seconds, so I did it again... then again.. then well, you get it- and when I switched back to the other window, then back to this one there were a million comments. I started deleting them but all of a sudden it wouldn't let me anymore. See? Technology IS lame!
