This week I have set myself the challenge to stay away from facebook and the TV for a whole week! (I’m already wondering if I can reduce this to mean 5 days… does it include the weekend I wonder? My challenge; my Rules!!).
The purpose of this challenge is because I want to ideally stay away from the computer altogether – I’ve not done so well today as I had to look for an address this morning and had other things that needed to be done quite urgently requiring the computer. I have managed to stay away from facebook though and the TV sits quietly in the living room. What I have done is text my boyfriend a lot more… and when I got the urge to share on facebook I wrote it down instead – There are lots… more so because I’m not allowed.
It’s a bit like when we go on a diet isn’t it. As soon as someone tells you it’s forbidden our inner teenager rips away the skin and jumps out with the finger and a few “you can’t stop me!!” yells of defiance.
I’m expecting this will get easier as the week goes on… but I may well be even more insane than usual by the end of it! Poor facebook will be wondering how I’m doing… So far in my little book I have 11 status updates… Aren’t you all lucky you missed them all!
I’ll be painting something I’m working on tonight and tomorrow the computer is staying OFF!! (oh okay then if you insist I’ll come and talk to you if I must!!). (no not really!).
(I can’t add this to the Ultimate Blog Challenge facebook page because I’m not going on facebook so if you are taking part do please add this… Thank you – I’ll catch up with others blogs next week).
Have you ever given up TV or the computer for a whole week?
