My daughter said something yesterday that really shook me to my bones. She made a comment about how much time I am online. WOW! I realized at that moment, that I do spend a lot of time on the Internet--most of it is just being nosy about what everyone is doing.
It just kind of hit me hard yesterday and I have finally realized that I might have a slight addiction to being on the computer. Yes--I do work from home and have to be on the computer for that, but past that point I have to ask myself this question--Do I really need to spend all that extra time on the computer?
The answer is NO. My family definitely takes priority over that time, so I have found I need to organize my online time. Have you ever done that?
Here is the solutions that I came up with
~Early morning is great for me. They are still sleeping and I can get much of my work done during this time period.
~Independent study time is a great time to be on here. They are busy working and I can be too.
~When they are outside playing and before my husband gets home.
Past these times, I am going to do my best to limit my computer time. Once my husband gets home and we settle in for the evening, I am going to work on staying off the computer during this time.
What about you? What are some ways that you limit computer time?
