(30 minute self portrait. No, those are not worms in my hair, they are supposed to be curls. Curls are as hard to draw as they are to style.)
My sister once told me a story about a mother who spent so much time on the computer that one day her little son brought her a picture he drew of her and it only showed her back, because that was all he saw. I have been noticing a lot lately (ok, for awhile now), that whenever my kids talk to me I have to turn around. I have to turn around because I'm usually facing the computer. This is not something I like about myself. It was because of my time on the computer that my kids got stuck watching too much TV. It was because of my time on the computer that I ended up addicted to online TV watching. I have managed to cut both of those things out of my life but yet I still find myself showing only my back to my children all too often. Lent starts tomorrow and is, in my opinion, a perfect time to make yet another change around here. Starting tomorrow I will no longer let my children see me on the computer for the next 40 days. This means that all computer activities must be done before they wake up, while they nap (IF they nap), or after they have gone to bed. Wowy, this is a big one for me. Luckily I got rid of TV before this so it won't be completely cold turkey. Wish me luck, and forgive me if I don't comment as often as I'd like on your blogs.
