Progress

It's been about a week since I made the decision to stop playing Candy Crush in the mornings and go back to starting my day by reading and writing blogs.  I'd have to say that so far, I've been pretty successful.  Clearly, I've been posting more regularly.  (Yay!)  My phone sits untouched on the table or the counter for the majority of my morning, and I'm not starting my day zoned out and focused on a game.

This is not to say that I never play Candy Crush ever.  I still play on random occasions throughout the day when the kids don't require my attention, and I've got a quick minute to take a little break, and there was that one day where naptime totally sucked, and I was exhausted and just needed to escape, so I gave myself permission to zone out and use all five of my lives in one sitting.  But otherwise, I've been good at limiting my time on the phone, and I think we're all happier for it.

I feel like my brain is more engaged again.  I'm back to going through the day thinking up random phrases that I can turn into blog posts.  I forget most of them in my perpetual state of exhaustion, but at least I'm thinking them to begin with.

Anyway, I feel like I'm cutting this short, and I should say more on the subject, but life (aka. the kids) calls for my attention, and it's time to get to it.  Off I go...back to the trenches...

I'm loving that you're trying to fight this addiction and that you're blogging more. I've been sitting here every morning with my cup of coffee reading your blogs and quite enjoying it. Keep it up!
