Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming. I am so thankful for you my readers, or what is left of you. I am so thankful you are reading this post. I am so thankful that you are still committed to making the world a more exciting and more sustainable place.  Keep up-cycling my friends, and you never know, I might be back again with an

Take The Two Hour Turn-Off Challenge

There is an amazing blog post making the rounds on my facebook pages. One that really made me think.It is by Hand's Free Mama and called How to Miss a Childhood.

Please click on the link and read it if you haven't already. I won't be mad and I will still be here when you come back :)

It has led me to make my own valuable decision.  I am making a VOW to Disconnect for a mere two hours a day:


Not just me, but my whole family will now be disconnected from 6-8pm every night.  I will be present for my children's childhood, we will eat dinner as a family at the table without TV or a smartphone anywhere nearby.

I will listen to what my children have to say, play with them outside, connect with them.

I will be their for my children's childhood and not be that mom at the playground checking facebook while her kids run around doing whatever they please.

I will enjoy my children more and technology less.

I will watch them swim this summer, play in the sand, and join them in making the biggest bubbles ever.  I will be present. That is my new motto, be present.

Why did I pick two hours to turn it all off. I honestly am aiming for much more then just two hours.  I just wanted to find a reasonable amount of time that the whole family could commit too and frankly the term the two hour turn off sounds good :).

Below you have a chance to sign up for the two hour turn off. If you are willing turn off for two hours every day for the rest of the summer. Experience life and living, not just technology.

If you are inspired by this challenge I would love it if you would add this button onto your blog.
