I know...people keep asking me when I'm going to blog again. I guess I just didn't have my heart in it recently. First off we unplugged the kids for awhile because they were getting too crazy with their screen time (I thought of you, Patti and Scott when we did it). I was just sick of the complaining. They aren't allowed any computer/video games (video games of lego or pbskids) during the week except Wii Sports and then limited to 1 hour screen time. Needless to say that over Christmas there was much whining. Therefore, the computer was unplugged for most of the day along with the TV completely. We plugged everything back in on Sunday after family council with the understanding that any breaking of the rules would bring seriously consequences.
Also, there was a certain other young (sort of young) man who was having a hard time regulating his computer time. Although he wasn't playing video games, staying up till 2 or 3 in the morning is still not allowed by me so the computer plug strip gotten take away from him till he agreed to follow the rules. I would like to add that he broke his own rules that he wrote last night with the computer but I don't know what punishment he should receive yet :)
Anyway, there are just some crazy times in life where everything is sort of messed up (or just my mind is messed up :). November was a stressful month and so by December I didn't feel like doing anything!! So...I didn't do anything which you always think is going to make you feel better but it doesn't. I always think I am just going to do my household stuff and callings and nothing else. I think that then I won't be overwhelmed. I won't try and do anything extra like hobbies or reading or self improvement. The problem is that is never works. A person just feels less useless and blah so I am trying again to start the constant fight of getting something else done ;) We'll see how it goes...
Even though I am trying to do better, I don't think I am ready to try and catch up on the last 2 months though...I am not that happy yet ;)
