Back in the saddle again
I am coming back to the blogosphere. I am just OVER being so plugged in ALL THE TIME! So I am going to go back to the blogging days to 1 - try and better journal our crazy life and 2 - to keep friends and family updated on all things happening in our little corner of the world without having to be on Facebook. As much fun as it is to reconnect with long lost friends and acquaintances, I just don't need any more distractions. I feel like my smart phone has become another appendage and I am done. It's a distraction from my kids and family that I just don't need. There are enough distractions and time pullers as it is. I love the internet convenience. I love the GPS. I love being able to read a book when I'm bored. I love having a camera ready. But I am tired. I am tired of too many unimportant things and people taking time away from those people and things that should be my main focus. I wish I could go off cell phones completely, but I am cognizant enough to realize texting is how the world communicates more often than not and it is the easiest way to get emergency alerts, etc. So for now, I'm deactivating my Facebook account, getting a basic flip phone (when my contract is up), I'm pulling out my really nice camera that I hardly ever use because my phone is always in my hand, and I am going to do everything I can to get myself back to my non-distracted mom days. Will I fail sometimes? Probably. Will I doubt my decision? Maybe. But will it help me accomplish a more important goal and purpose of focusing on my family? Definitely. So. Here goes nothing! Wish me luck.
