A New Year…okay, let’s do this!
Last year was amazing, but I am always really excited for the new year. Does anyone else feel when a new year starts it's like cleaning your slate? Why can't I feel that way every month? I guess I could, okay anyway. I've been evaluating some things in our daily family life and I think I'm going to make some changes to our family media usage. I don't like hearing the kids constantly asking to watch a movie, we've been sick a lot lately just because it's that season so I've allowed the kids to watch way too many movies. And I've been sick a lot too so I've been doing way too much time wasting on the computer. Time to put the media distractions into the office for a while and do a little "mental cleanse" :) It's not that I wont be on facebook here and there, and I plan to still blog our memories but I've been wanting to do a lot more blogging and a lot less on Facebook. I tried that last year but we didn't have the setup to make blogging an easy thing to accomplish, but I have an amazing husband and he's got me all set up in the office now. I love that guy! So this year my goal for our family is to see a lot less of this... And a lot more of this, okay minus the Christmas tree in the background and all the sugar but you get the idea ;) So starting tomorrow and through the rest of this month, I'm going to be checking/responding to email and facebook only once a day. If you really need to get a hold of me you can give me a call before 11:00 or after 3:00 as we are schooling during that time and phone calls are a big distraction so I let it go to the answering machine. I'm going to stay off of Facebook for the next month but I will be posting to my blog and will cross post on Facebook. I'm going to shut off comments on facebook so if you'd like to comment on something you can comment on the blog post :) Love you all!
