Time without media

This week I have started a fast of social media. It’s something that I feel has consumed my attention and focus all day long. It’s a constant distraction with very little reward, so this last weekend I vowed to stay off. It was even more solidified when I learned that the owner of Facebook is one of the top 10 richest people in the world as it causes my productivity to stumble. Heck no. 

I can’t even begin to express how different my
Viewpoint and productivity is without it.  It’s kind of embarrassing to admit how much I realize it had a hold of my life. Last night there was some pertinent news going on with bombings in Iran and a new Bachelor, so I figured I should pop on and see what I was missing. Well... I found I was missing absolutely nothing. It was just a bunch of junk,
Distraction, platforms, memes and whining. Sharing of accomplishments that were not my own at all. It’s hard to realize I was spending my days staying abreast of the nonsense. 

Yesterday Owen was home from school and so we spent the whole day together interacting, deep cleaning the boys bedroom and making cake and banana bread. It was amazing. Logan I found out had hit his head in school at recess on Monday and had a big red bump from it. We spent the evening with the family watching Jeapordy and helping him with math questions on prodigy. Caylee is my beautiful tall smart lady who is finishing up with classes at middle school. She has had a crappy math teacher, but is switching this next block and also gets to take shop again. Ian is my spirited big hearted kiddo. He is getting tall and I call him Snugs because he loves to snuggle even to this day and demands it. 

Blessings blessings. Now for my day.
