Time Out

My internet addiction is becoming overwhelming and I think I need to call a time out. I don't plan on leaving completely, because I really love blogging and reading blogs, but I need to curb my Facebook problem.

Every time I open the computer or my phone, I am heading to Facebook. I participate in a bunch of groups and I like to keep track of what's going on. I like reading statuses, seeing photos, sharing photos, etc. But it's getting ridiculous. I can't get anything done because I can't stop checking my Facebook!

To me, though, it's been an outlet to talk to other people when I'm stuck at home with my baby. So it's hard to say bye, but I know I should cut some time down because I don't need to be on there all the time. It's not necessary.

I can see all the positives too. I need to spend some time writing and working on my career. It's been far too long! I need to clean and cook and keep the house in order, for my own sanity. I need to spend some time outside, go to the pool, play with my dog. I need to read. I need to spend as much time as I can with Penny.
So I'm calling a little time out on Facebook, and the internet. It's going to be hard but I'm cutting back some time. Wish me luck!


  1. Good for you! I've been trying to do the same thing lately with FB and have actually found that I don't miss it as much as I thought I would. And I've made time specifically for blogging and reading blogs, but beyond that I stay away from the computer. I have to admit, my house has been much cleaner lately! Good luck!!

    (LOVE Penny's chair! That photo is adorable!)

  2. I just did this for several weeks. I am going to continue cutting my time back and do it all in healthy moderation. My house has really been suffering because the amount of time I have been spending on the Internet. It's sickening how crazy addicted I have become to it.

  3. Timeouts can be wonderful. I have to curb my addiction by setting a Good luck!

  4. i have been doing an internet time out for the past month or so. of course, it's mostly because i've gotten back into my books. :D

  5. I need to do this too. I've been MUCH better about it since Charlotte was born, but it still gets bad some days. I really try not to be on the computer at all while she's awake, but when she's not... Sometimes I neglect things - like housework - when I really should be focusing on that. Sigh.

  6. I struggled with this when we first moved, but I've found a happy medium. I hope you can, too!

  7. I'm the same way.

    And OH MY GOSH, I love that picture!!!
