Time for something new and different

My life is pretty damn good right now. I have a job I am particularly fond of - and that job gives me 3 day weekends every weekend - I have a house I really love. I have 3 dogs that I adore, 1 of which I am finally getting to do all the stuff I wanted to do with. Things are good for me. And yet, I spend most of my time at home sitting in front of the computer. I got into that habit when I was working on my Ph.D. and it has just seemed to stick. I'm tired of it. I think I need to limit my time at the computer when I am home. Also,  I have a kickass laptop/tablet that I can use to do what I need to do. It rather sucks for playing games and that's a good thing. I play this stupid game far, far too much. So I think it's time for a change. I have things I need to do and they don't get done because I sit at the computer and get lost in stupidity. Time to move on.

I bought weights the other day so I could work out at home. Have I done that?  No.    So maybe that would be a good thing to do today. I have some shirts I have to make for a party tonight. Have I done that? No. Maybe that's a good thing to do today. I really want to work with Mavy on his agility and his behavior around other dogs. Have I done that? No. As you can see, I have tons of things that need doing and sitting on the computer for most of the day is keeping me from doing it. The weekdays are not a problem until I get home from work. The weekends are problems all day. So, starting right now, when hubby gets up on the weekends I am putting the computer to sleep. If I need to do something or look something up, I have the laptop that I will use. I will spend my days doing things not looking at things. And it is going to start right now because I hear him stirring. Time to put this thing to sleep.

it's time to move forward. I had reached a point last week where I was stressed. Seriously. Stressed. All completely self-imposed, b...
