I put it into my routine, I’m going to start as of tomorrow, to only play on the computer for 2 hours a day. I have too many other things I want to get done. I have a whole list of things to do, and mostly want to stop being so addicted to the computer. I am! I’m obsessed with it! lol, just kidding, but really it does feel like that from time to time. Have a great day!

I have decided to change this, I in stead am going to put the laptop away in it’s cupboard for the whole day, and only take it out at night. That way, since i’m addicted to it, I will spend the day with my girls, and do things around the house, that I have been putting off, and then after everything is done for the day, take it out to check my emails, and other things I like to look at on the computer. As you can see today though, I had planned to do this, starting today, but didn’t get around to putting it away, and when I had some free time, while my daughter was sleeping, I logged on. Now I am in front of it again. But tomorrow, I swear, starting tonight, I will put it away, and only take it out in the evenings. Preferrably after my girls go to bed, but We’ll see about that.
today, I got on at 9am. I plan to stay on for one hour. So, when my husband calls to say hello on his lunch break at 10, I am going to turn off the computer. That’s the plan. Then I need to go finish cleaning my bedroom, and setting it up so I can do sit ups in there. And finish the laundry, and wash a couple of dishes in the sink. :D
I tried to do this yesterday and the last few days. I get so addicted easily. hmm. I have been online so far today around 2 hours. But have done other things inbetween too. I really wanted to get on here, since i haven’t in over a week, so had to spend a little extra time online today. But at least i got other things that needed to be done, done.
I find that I get zoned out on the computer. It’s my way out into the world. I love information, and even if there’s nothing else to look at on the computer, I will constantly keep doing stuff on the computer, which means nothing else gets done in the house. ugh! I just can’t seem to limit myself to 2 hours. I keep coming up with other reasons to get on it. ugh! I will try to do this starting at least tomorrow. I would do it today, but I’ve already gone over 2 hours. I think I will get offline in a minute though, and start folding the laundry in my room and cleaning it up so that I can get my bedroom cleaned up. It so needs it! ugh! not looking forward to it though. hmm. have a great day!
