This weekend, for the first time in a while, we spent the time doing family things – binge watching some shows, eating, teasing one another, laughing, catching up on sleep, reading and enjoying one another’s company (until we got on one another’s nerves!). The weekend still has an hour or so left in it, and the house is calm.
I also did something that seems terrifying – I uninstalled most social media apps from my phone. Twitter, Reddit, LinkedIn (why do I still have that?). Given that I seem to be checking one or the other for unmentionable periods of time, including as soon as I wake up, or just before falling asleep, this purge is well warranted. I’m going to give it a shot, anyways. Given my experience (& failure) with these sort of experiments, I’m trying it out one day at a time.
