My life is crazy right now. I am overwhelmed, tired, and very irratable. I noticed recently that I am barking at the people I love way more than I should. I get so upset when I don't get to get on the computer and play with my blog, pictures, facebook, forums, e-mail, etc. I realized that I am getting to hooked on the internet/tv and my children/family are suffering from it!

"And don’t allow yourself to be caught up in the time-wasting, mind-numbing things like television soap operas or surfing the Internet. Turn to the Lord in faith, and you will know what to do and how to do it"
I have totally done this. Not only with the internet but with soap operas as well. When I heard this talk, I knew it was directed towards me. This day I remember only hearing this one talk. As I am typing this, Cayten has spilled food all over, Rysa has a snotty nose, my cereal is still out on the counter and the milk, the couch cushions are torn off my couch, and a million other things are left un done.
I have decided to take a break from the internet world. I feel as if I am addicted. I will get on in the evenings as Cris is almost ALWAYS watching sports and I can do stuff on here when my kids are asleep but if my kids are awake, you will not find me on here. I hope to accomplish this. I need to get back on track and not so focused on me.
I know it is important to have "me" time but I have been so focused on "me" and figuring out what "me" wants to do in life that my children are suffering. All in all, my greatest goal in life is to be a great mom to my kids and for my kids to actually think that while they are growing up, not after. I really need to work on this!
