The UnWired Mom

The UnWired Mom

I’m easily distracted. The book If You Give a Pig a Pancake could have been written based on real live events in my own world. Needless to say, the emergence of Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. have added a whole new series of rabbit trails for me on which to wander off.

Don’t get me wrong. They’re all great. I love that Facebook lets me stay connected with friends and family I don’t get to see often. Also, I’m a freelance writer who gleans a lot of valuable insight and opportunities from others I’ve connected with on Twitter and other social media outlets.

However, there are times (too many, I’m afraid) that it becomes more than a 9 to 5 job. A quick “That’s a great quote, I need to tweet that!” becomes an hour-long plummet into Twitterland.

That’s why, when @sarahmae posted the UnWired Mom 14-Day Challenge, I was all in. You can check it out here:

I’m painfully aware of the fact that I need to nourish my time with my family – especially my daughters. When we do take time to have lengthy conversations, they are sweet and often go in unexpected directions. I know if I expect them to want to spend time with me later, I need them to know I want to spend time with them now.

I hope to be journaling more (which is something I’ve wanted to do anyway!). Upcoming posts may simply be pics of my journal pages.

I would love for you to join me on this journey! Everything is more fun with a friend, yes? Let me know if you’re in. We could meet up for coffee one day after a week into it and compare notes!
