I did not miss Facebook or reading and searching blogs all that much. We in fact a had a very busy week so it was not too bad. I did have withdrawals a little but soon got over it. The kids were fantastic!! We even drove down to OC and did not bring the DVD player at all! The way down was fine because the slept and it was nightime. However on the way back it was a little harder. Enzo slept the first two hours and Kira played nicely with her doll. But as we stopped for dinner and the drive dragged on a little bit they started to
I feel really good and want to stick with it. All of the reasons that I thought I needed them to watch a video- making dinner or getting a shower, ended up not necessary. We survived the week and it felt good. They played nicer than they ever had. We did watch a movie on Wednesday when there was craziness with the preparation for the reception, the front door had to be open and people were going in and out and it was too much and I needed containment for their safety. They also had a slumber party with cousins at Grandma and Grandpa's house on Saturday and watched a movie there too. It was a spur of the moment and I could not say no, who could.
What I am planning on doing is keep the week free from movies for the kids and then on Friday night have family movie night. Then Saturday morning cartoons and keep it at that. Just two days of movies is way better than what we used to do. If there is the extra one or less I am okay with it.
As for the computer........
Well I have decided that I can check email in the morning and post a blog but I need to do it before 9:00. Or I can post a blog, FB, read my blogs, email and such after the kids are asleep. I am going to try to write a post the night before like I am doing right now and post the next morning. This way I will plan a little more my posts and try to get a pattern or routine in writing.
I know Mondays tend to be "Make it Monday" by Skip to My Lou and I want to keep posting on those days all things crafty.
Wednesdays: Rugrats, crafts, school etc.
Thursdays: Thrifty Thursdays and post about my reuse/recycle items.
Fridays: Devotion or Encouraging.
Then take the weekend off. I know a lot of blogs that do weekend links and that might be a good idea. I would love to get my blog to have a little more structure but it is always fun having random posts too.
What do you think? Would you tune in to a specific topic?
