Say "Good-Bye"

I'm going to try a little experiment. I'm going to try to give up the internet for one week. Can it be done? I'm not so sure. I find that as a stay-at-home mother- this is one outlet I have to the outside world. Nonetheless, I must find out if it can be done. No blogging; no news; no web surfing; no email. NO EMAIL? Ok- maybe a little email. A girl can't get rid of all her lifelines!

I'll be back next week sometime. We're preparing for a garage sale this weekend, family reunion on Sunday and I absolutely must get back on schedule with homeschooling! So, I have plenty to keep me busy. See you all soon!

Have a great week! It'll be easier to stay away than you think.

Good for you. I take little bloggy breaks from time to time to pull me back into reality.

Angelena,

I've been meaning to post for a while now to tell you that you really inspired me by giving up the internet for a week.

I had been feeling really convicted about the amount of time that I was spending online at the expense of other, more important things.

It's not like I was gambling or looking at dirty pictures but even good things can become a major distraction from family.

I managed to stay off the internet for a week (well, six days anyway). Boy, was it difficult. There were times when I had to stop and pray when the urge to surf struck me. It's amazing how integral the internet has become to our everyday lives.

Again, thanks for your inspiration.

Kim
