A Much Needed Break

I wasn’t on myLot yesterday at all. I had time but I needed a break, not from myLot specifically but from the computer in general. I’m juggling a lot of stuff now and I was opting for a little computer time rather than do the mundane. So I spent yesterday cleaning house, gardening, and restocking the pantry. As a reward I took my mother-in-law over to the church for Movie Night. We ate popcorn and watched God’s Not Dead 2. The movie was awesome, and then we came home to a CLEAN house. Photo graphic is mine.

I sometimes spend too long here and end up coming up to a not-so-clean house!

Lately I've been going too many different directions. I need to deep six a few things so I can focus on what matters to me.

Sounds like a great day. I haven't seen that movie yet but may watch it this weekend online. I liked the first one so no doubt this one will be good.

The movie was excellent. I have to admit I was skeptical at the start, but it was well done and the story enthralling.

Sometimes we need a day away from my lot. It can be nice to do something else.

I don't spend a lot of time on myLot, no time, but I just needed to spend the day catching up on other things.

@BettyB I can understand that. Other things do need to get done.

I'm very computer dependent. Sometimes I think I'm too plugged in.

@BettyB Me too. I think I may be missing out on the things I like to do that do not involve technology .

Its not a documentary. It is an American Christian Drama, directed by Harold Cronk staring Melissa Joan Hart. It was an excellent movie and vary moving.

Honestly, no. My mother in law was so tired that we headed out as soon as the movie was over.

It's good to take time away from the computer sometimes. I do that maybe once a week.

I needed the break. I need to do that once a week or so. I have so much going on that sometimes the time on the computer is the break, other times it adds to the problems.

@BettyB I know what you mean. Once I start my online classes, I will have to take some breaks away.

It was nice. My husband needed the break as well. He had the house to himself for the evening. He was in much better spirits when we got back.

Love the photo, you did well to capture the butterfly. I haven't been on the computer much myself this past week as I've been away. It can be refreshing to get away from the compouter for a while.

I needed the break. Now I need to set up a schedule I can sort of stick to. It would make a difference.
