New Rules!


I am trying to become more self disciplined. Last night, I stayed on the computer too long and got to bed way too late! Then of course I had trouble getting up this moring! So, what do I do when my kids are on the computer too long? I set a timer. When the timer goes off, they get off...no arguments! Why is it that I make these rules for my kids and then I go and act like a child myself?

So I am mothering myself tonight and setting a timer. I have 15 more minutes. Jamie says that I am very amusing sometimes!

I like your idea, though I would tend to ignore the call of reason (in the form of a timer) and keep feeding my people addiction.

My DH wonders if I know how much time I spend on the computer. Do I really WANT to know is the question I am asking myself. I really love the connection to people too and that is why I'm here so often.

He's my "Darling".

you guessed it! It's al said...

I'm starting to notice that mom is blogging whille I'm not around. I think it's because she doesen't like me reading over her sholder.

No. It's that magic hour that the children are in bed and I have no distractions. Otherwise known as peace and quiet.

I love you, my darling son. But...you and your sisters take a lot of my individual attention. You know...taking you to sports practice, feeding you, making sure homework is done. You'll understand when you are a parent some day.

Why am I communicating with you like this when you are just in the other room?

Priscilla - there is much wisdom in your decision.

And it is also amusing!!! ;-)


I don't blog on the weekend is my new limit - and it has made the family all a bit happier.
