Wow. I know to you I seem like I am always distracted by my phone & maybe I am.
I always have my phone with me. And when I have a moment of quiet, the first thing that I do is pull it out, check my email, scan through facebook, then check in on Twitter. Although I try not to do it when I am with the girls, I find myself doing it a lot.
Girls are eating breakfast...read everyone's morning facebook statuses
Waiting to pick up the girls...see who is doing what on twitter
Cooking dinner...scan through my emails.
Do I do this all the time? No, but I do it enough that I think it's an issue. I would love to remove all data from my phone for the next 30 days, but my company pays for my phone and my data, so I have to be able to get my emails on go. And I don't enjoy those emails, so they really don't count...right?
So how did today go?
I have to admit, what I really struggled with was not talking on the phone in the car. Tuesdays involve more driving & each trip is at least 15 minutes. I found myself automatically picking up my phone to dial & then having to remember to put it down. I have to be honest...it was great. Neely never quits talking & we had at least an hour of conversation today in the car. And she is so funny...I
As far as missing twitter and facebook, that wasn't so bad. I didn't have a lot of downtime today, so I didn't really miss it. Usually while I am waiting for Neely at gymnastics, I spend time scrolling through status updates, but today I spent that time visiting with my friends. Much better!
The thing that I realized today is that by not talking on the phone in the car, I had to push off some work calls, which left me feeling behind later. So I think I need to focus on time management & unfortunately, the only place that I can get some extra uninterrupted time is in the morning. This leads me to...
Day 3 - Waking up earlier (yuck)
And just a little of what we have been up to:
1. Neely has become obsessed with having curly hair & loves her pink rollers
2. Lela's hair is long enough for pigtails & I am obsessed. Unfortunately, she takes her hair down almost immediately every time I fix it.
3. I hung these empty picture frames down my stairway last January. Last week, I finally put family pictures in them!
4. Brad & Neely are in the process of transitioning to our fall flowers. I love fall and beds full of pansies make me so happy.
