Cold turkey.....

Nope, not the leftover kind, the "going without something" kind. I've been wondering if I could go cold turkey and quit the internet...! I know if I am traveling or even just away from home for the day I don't miss the computer at all, but as soon as I get home I check the phone for messages then I turn on the computer to check for messages there too. Facebook is my biggest time drain.... I LOVE keeping up with everybody, checking out the photos, playing the games ( well, just the one game, but a LOT ) but really, is it life? Is it LIVING? Do I want "She played a mean game of Bejeweled Blitz but sadly never learned the guitar" on my tombstone?? ( Metaphorical tombstone, I plan on being cremated and made in to diamonds...! 'D ) No. No I don't. I'm going to give it a try. I'll have to do some preparation first. I'll have to have an end date in mind I think... the thought of cold turkey makes me nauseous ( no, literally this time!I really ought to throw that stuff OUT !!! ;D ) but I bet I can do it!!! Give me a few days and I'll see what I can do!!! Really! Really really!

Its a real challenge finding that balance, isn't it? I like keeping up with folks on facebook and elsewhere, and often come away feeling good. But the games? Not so much. Not even when I get a ridiculously high score! :-)

I'm not into resolutions, but I kinda liked an idea I adapted from the Happiness Project blog: for habits I want and that are good for me (exercise, eating my fresh fruits and veggies, whatever), don't skip two days in row (i.e., don't break the habit). For things I want to eliminate, don't partake two days in a row (i.e., don't let it become a habit). It's working for me so far!

I do hope you find the balance you seek, but I hope that won't mean you completely disappearing from my reality, virtual or otherwise. I'll miss ya.

Hmmmm, wondering what's in that email!

I hope you find the balance and don't leave us alone here online. I'd miss you terribly and I'm horrible at the phone.
