May for Me Begins
I began May for Me by unplugging. I didn't sit down and watch any television, I didn't get online, and I didn't initiate any text messages and no phone calls. The only two things I did were add my calories and exercise to my Loseit account and I did keep my phone on, because my son and his new wife *huge grin* were flying back from Jamaica and I needed to know when they were flying out and flying in. It's a Mama thing.
I also needed to have my phone on, because my sister and her husband were camping in the mountains, and the weather was threatening. She needed someone to let her know if there was a tornado or flash flood warning. And there were, so I did text with two people. And that's ok, there is no unplugged police. (That I know of anyway.)
I spent the day at church, working on cleaning my bedroom and bath, and trying to finish this pesky Irish Chain quilt.
I thought I was in the home stretch, but there is still a lot of work to do. I am finding that as I get one thing finished, I'm getting a new idea to try on it. It will be unique, that's for "dang shore" as we say here in the south.
I had to spend a little extra time this morning, answering emails, and checking the rest of you out, but it was really worth it to live without the interruption of checking email every 30 minutes and getting caught up in all the blogs I follow. I think I need to trim them down, because I find myself skimming. Why bother if I'm not going to give it my full attention??
So on day two, I plan to get on that elliptical, then go get my grandson for the day. I'll get back to the quilt tonight and hopefully have it finished by tomorrow evening. Keep your fingers crossed and say a prayer for me.
