changing my focus


I was going to post today about my mom's birthday yesterday, but my computer died last night (or at least won't turn on right now because it has a hard drive error and probably needs to go to a repair shop). 

It seems to me like this came as a final warning that I've been spending too much time online. This is something I've known for months, but haven't quite gotten the self-control to change. As I'm trying to give Nolan my full attention, and as I'm anticipating the new baby coming in January (I assume I will not have any free time at that point), it's time for me to take a small step back from blogging. I will continue posting a few times a week for the foreseeable future, but I have to take a break from all of the blog-reading, commenting, and networking that I've been plugged into. I apologize if this makes me seem like I am MIA, but it's really something that I need to do for my husband and my nearly two-year-old. Thank you for understanding :) 

And hopefully I can get the photos up from my mom's birthday soon-ish!
Have a great weekend!

  5. Good for you Rachel! I too found myself in that same spot about a year ago and had to make the decision to cut back. My compulsion to constantly be checking something online was a little hard to stop at first, but it didn't take too long before I was enjoying all extra time I suddenly had during the day! :)

  6. Spending too much time on the computer is sooo easy when you are at home with a little one. I felt convicted about it early this summer too. Now, I am more intentional about when I go on the internet. I have a little bit of a routine for it. That way it is still part of my day but doesn't get in the way of other things!
