I am currently taking a break from blogging because I think I spend too much time here. Furthermore, it's Easter Hols for the kids and they hog this laptop of mine, fighting for each other's turns at playing games on the Net. The condition I give: if you fight - NO COMPUTER!! Another tactic is to organise activities for the others while one is enjoying his/her turn. Organising activities can be rather exhausting... Storytelling, craft activities to explore the theme offered in the story, writing activities, scientific experiments (oh, dear... you wouldn't want to know or see the details!!), kitchen killers and the lot. The thing is, when I organise such activities to distract them from fighting, the activity would be so appealing to the one at the computer that the game is no longer interesting! Oh dear...
This post was supposed to be a relatively short one but as it is, once my fingers find the keyboard, it just dances away! I promise my next post will be a summary of what we've been up to, including pictures. For now, just to lighten things up:
12 Step Recovery Program For Web Addicts (Bloggers, especially...)
I will have a cup of coffee in the morning and read my PAPER newspaper like I used to, before the Web.
I will eat breakfast with a knife and fork and not with one hand typing.
I will get dressed before noon.
I will make an attempt to clean the house, wash clothes, and plan dinner before even thinking of the Web.
I will sit down and write a letter to those unfortunate few friends and family that are Web-deprived.
I will call someone on the phone who I cannot contact via the Web.
I will read a book... if I still remember how.
I will listen to those around me about their needs and stop telling them to turn the TV down so I can hear the music on the Web.
I will not be tempted during TV commercials to check for email.
I will try and get out of the house at least once a week, if it is necessary or not.
I will remember that my bank is not forgiving if I forget to balance my checkbook because I was too busy on the Web.
Last, but not least, I will remember that I must go to bed sometime... and the Web will always be there tomorrow!
