Life has been super busy. I feel like we are constantly rushing out the door each day to get to some commitment, run a bunch of errands, volunteer at some event or making an appearance at a get together. I feel like any other time we are glued to technology. Checking messages, social media, playing games, emailing, and even blogging when we do have a free minute. So the other day I had a moment to stop and think during our hectic schedule...
Life is too short. We are constantly rushing or overextending ourselves to commitments that in ten years or heck even next year won't matter. D will only be small for so long and I don't want to be that mom behind my phone that just missed all those special moments because I can't disconnect. I also want to work harder on setting a schedule in place for him and even if that means sometimes saying no to someone or something.
In a serious attempt to enjoy more family time, capture those special moments, and find ME time I have really limited my use of technology ;) I am making sure to soak up those moments that will be gone too fast and at night time when all is quiet to use the time to read, sew, do puzzles with J, and enjoy the things that de-stress my life instead of getting caught up in Facebook and what is happening in everyone else's life.
I hope with less commitments and less technology we find more time to enjoy those special moments that pass too quickly as we raise D.
