GROUNDED-Sunday PICNIC!

Let me just admit...I SPEND WAY TOO MUCH TIME ON THE COMPUTER! (Yes, honey, I know you are reading this and I am actually admitting this). Especially since MY COMMAND CENTER has had its makeover. I just LOVE MY SPACE.

SO, Today, I decided to GROUND MYSELF from the computer for 5 hours-I will admit, it was tough but I kept very busy. It's not like I sit here all day but since it's in the common area, I just check in on ya'all periodically. (You can see my command center chair in the upper right hand corner of the pics below.)

I cleaned out MUCH JUNK from counter tops and cupboards while painting & keeping my eye on The Daytona 500 in honor of THE CAPTAIN. The most fun thing was picnicking with the kids.

THEY JUST LOVED IT! AREN'T THEY ADORABLE!
I NEED TO GROUND MYSELF MORE OFTEN!

WE MISS YOU CAPTAIN LOVE!

GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD FOR HE IS GOOD!

I can relate. I try to be on here a lot less on the weekends when the hubby is home with us. And I take numerous time outs through out the day for games, puzzles, & play with Collin. :)
But sometimes you just need that escape. (at times more so than others)
Have a GREAT week!!!

I need to ground myself also!

okay so I have to admit that my favorite part is that several of the kids aren't wearing pants. Yay! That makes me feel WAY more normal! I'm happy if my kids have a shirt and underwear on. That's a plus.
And this reminds me to do something fun to break up my day tomorrow!

Ha! One day very soon I'm writing a post about giving up everything else for our children. Not in the way the world sees it - living for your children - but how God sees it. Why? Because God spoke powerfully to me last night through a talk I had with my husband. Truth sets us free!

Love you Jenn!

I'm so glad to hear I'm not the only one that has to "ground" myself from the computer...LOL. I actually stayed off of it ALL DAY yesterday (Sunday)...but then I was sick all day too....so maybe that shouldn't count...LOL. That's a cool idea to have a picnic indoors with the kids....you're so inventive! Have a great day!

I have decided to do a 'internet' fast once a week. For medical reasons I am unable to fast from food and since I love the internet, I thought the Lord would honor it just the same :-)

Oh ... how we can all relate to needing that time out from the computer! You new space is beautiful. Love your Valentine ideas and the indoor picnic!

Ah, what a sweet way to spend a Sunday!!

I recently realised I need to ground myself, too. Only after ALL of them are in bed! ;)

They are much happier when they have 100% of me. Which makes me happy, too.

And look at your kids' picnic smiles - you know they love it!
