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.
