A Free Weekend

Want to know how much time you waste on the Internet?

Vow to have a computer-free weekend. I did, from Friday late afternoon to 48 hours later, on Sunday afternoon. (Except for one teensy e-mail check on Sunday.)

I was flabbergasted at how the time went more slowly and how much I was able to accomplish. Here’s what I did this weekend:

  • Coupon shopped at Target and Bi-Lo.
  • Scrubbed the kitchen floor on my hands and knees (after sweeping AND Swiffer vacuuming it.)
  • Changed sheets and washed them on our bed and our guest bed.
  • Did a whole lot of laundry.
  • Took Libbie to a new-to-us park.
  • Watched my March Madness bracket go down the drain.
  • Kept up with the dishes.
  • Made peanut butter cookies. (Oops.) (I slightly modified the recipe from Baking: From My Home to Yours and THEY ARE DIVINE.)
  • Read an entire Jodi Picoult novel.
  • Played on the floor.
  • Made an Easter card for my MIL from Libbie.
  • Tried to scrapbook until my glue exploded all over the living room.
  • Went to a church we loved!

I don’t usually get anywhere near that much accomplished in the span of two days. It really opened my eyes to what life could be like. I’m going to try to do a better job monitoring my time online.

When I did come back, however, I was SO blessed by the comments I got on my last Losing It 10 post. I hope this site is a ministry to you … because you all are water to my soul.

  1. Yes you are so right about managing your time online! Great point! I find that as my kids get older they need to use the computer for school projects and I have to do things like your list! And yes I get a lot done then also!!! 🙂
