the weekend

345 & 346

How many of you unplug for the weekend? Do you stop checking email? Do you turn off the computer and cell phone?

I usually don’t. But I wish I did.

I feel obligated to check email, and so I do–sometimes obsessively. I need to change this. It’s not good for me, it’s not good for the family, and it’s not the person I want to be.

so I’m going to change it. It’s Friday, 4:04pm, and I’m turning off my drug.

this weekend:

keep up with the daily 7

wrap presents

spend time with the family


thursday–catch up

Things are moving at the speed of light around here. So far, so good, but I can tell that I’m going to crash in the next day or two. It’s inevitable.


play catch up

plan ahead for the weekend

Monday, the 340th day of the year

December 6, 2010 by · 2 Comments 


The end of the year is approaching. Fast. Even though I didn’t intend to, I’ve already begun my ritual of wandering around the house deep in thought. What went well this year? What didn’t? How can we make next year even better?

Counting your blessings is very important. the most important, actually. but I also think it’s okay to look forward to new ones.

what’s on your list?
