It has to stop! Since I’ve been back from the holidays I feel like I’ve been glued to the internet. Here’s what a typical day looks like:
6am – Check email then exercise
7am – Eat breakfast while reading blogs
8am – 4pm – Work on the computer all day with short break outside for lunch.
4pm – 6pm – Read more blogs or watch TV reruns on Netflix
6pm – 9pm – Dinner and watch a movie or documentary with Brendan (often on the computer)
9pm – 10pm – Read and then to bed
It’s horrendous! Last year I made such great strides towards a more simple life and so far this year I’ve fallen into this rut of being constantly on the computer. It’s become the default option when I find I have some time on my hands.
So today I’m changing that. I’m riding up to the library shortly to get some more books. I’ve run out, which seems to have become my excuse for ‘reading’ more in the internet. I’ve already cleaned out the bathroom cupboards and drawers this morning and later today I plan on putting a couple of first-aid kits together from all the goodies I found lurking in the back. Since it’s a beatiful sunny day I think I’ll also get out into the garden. It is in need of a good weeding after all the rain last week.
Does anyone else suffer from this affliction? If so, what has been your cure?
