Taking time

I do realize I just posted about spending less time on here. But I found out I'm addicted to blogging! opps!
Because none of our kids are in school (yet), summer-time brings no change in our schedule, except for the nice weather. We literally live, eat, play and sometimes sleep outside.
I'm afraid to learn how much time I spend on the computer. Way to much I know. Just late last fall we finally got a computer. I survived just fine without one, but now that we have one.. its just so handy.
But just like anything, too much of something can be a bad thing. For me it's...the computer. Because of it I've been able to keep in touch with old friends, met new friends and get to know people better. But also because of the computer...I've put alot of things on the back burner or worse... neglected them.
My kids are only young once. I know I'll never, ever regret the time I spent with them. But I've already come to regret the times I DIDN'T spend with them, (because of selfish reasons).
I will NOT give up this blog, because of what it means for others (and for me). I know for some people this is the only way they can see our family because of the distance between us. But I will learn to use it much more wisely. Like when the kids are napping or sleeping.
So in the mean time.. I'm going to go outside and take time to smell the flowers.. and have a piece of cake that my daughter has so eagerly made just for Mommy! (I have some 'hilarious- pictures-that-my-kids-will-just-love-me-for-when-they-get-older' to post when I have more time....keep watching..) And yes, this is the same post as over here...
