I was reading a new-to-me blog today. Lucky Duck Day. We are actually starting with 13 others on a new quilting adventure. You know the kind. We each are assigned a month and the rest of us make a block for that person in the style that they choose. Our group is called Sew Connected. Feel free to follow us along on flickr. The fun begins next month. I'm a little nervous. I am signing up for a 15 month commitment! eek! I'm feeling overwhelmed with what I have to do at the moment, so I just need to keep reminding myself that it is just one block a month, just one block a month, just one block a month.....breathe.
So, back to Lucky Duck Day, her post today was about finding balance between computer time and the rest of her time. This is something that I struggle with. It would be one thing if I was spending productive time on the computer. But no, my friends, I spend about 15 minutes of productive time and then fart away minutes and sometimes hours (spread through out the day) on the computer. Eeek!
And it's not that I'm am only wasting time. I feel slightly in a fog after spending too much time on the computer. I wander around trying to get myself in gear. That is not a good way to start the morning. It's like shooting myself in the foot if I want to have a productive day. Ugh!
this is my brain after spending too much time on the computer
I need to be more diligent with my time. If I spent as much time on cleaning my house as I spend on the computer, my house would be spotless. If I spent as much time on sewing /quilting, I would be able to work on more of the ideas I have in my head. But you know what it is? It's easy to plop my rear in front of the computer. It takes more effort to clean or sew or whatever.
So, here's to change! I'm going to make an effort to use my time more constructively! How about you? Ready to join me?
***and the irony of it all: i'm on the computer writing a blog post about not spending so much time on the computer! ha!
