What Happens When You Cut Back on Social Media - You Get Things Done!!!
I know I spend a lot of time on social media. Finally being home for many days in a row and working on cleaning and decluttering the house for Confirmation last weekend, I was forced to get off social media and do more things that were on my to do list. The house got mostly cleaned (except for a couple non-public areas), more real meals were made (with the help of my daughters and MIL and even today (our crockpot and stockpot)).
Having moved forward this week, we are trying to finish up school for the year, get the filing under control and decluttering some more before we have another weekend activity. For my birthday I got a new label maker (handheld) because my old one only printed half of the words and I have been using it to label files and set up a filing system for all my homeschooling information and ideas. About 1:30 today, I ran it completely out of label tape. Hoping I can find some at Shopko this afternoon so I can keep going with this project.
Next up is the office purging and filing. Better get two label refills for that one. Once the office is doing better, Also making a list of curriculum to purchase for next year at the homeschool conference that is next weekend. Always feels good when I have purchases our curriculum and can start planning out our next year. Hard to believe but I have one graduating in 2 years and all three kids will graduate within 4 years.
Sadly, I have not posted on my blog for over 13 months! Vowing to change that and hopefully spend a little less time on Facebook. I have always dreamt of writing and while I still want to write a book (I have ideas and notes started for two of them), I think blogging is a great foray into that realm to see if I really have as much to say as I think I do.
Hoping to set up a blog calendar of topics so I am reminded to blog more regularly. Look for more pictures, more recipes (LOVE Pinterest ) and maybe even more political commentary (you can skip if you don't want to read it).
