weekend unplugged!!

I'm going to do it this weekend - Friday evening to Monday morning with:

- no email
- no social media
- no scrolling the internet 

Acceptable uses of my phone/computer will include:

- maps
- taking a pic if the moment really calls for it (though no posting of pix anywhere)
- answering texts or making calls if needed to arrange IRL things
- Headspace and the new workout app I am trying (it's a free trial, I'll report back when it's over)
- listening to music on Spotify or a podcast while running

Acceptable uses of my phone/computer WILL NOT include:

- online shopping
- reading blogs or online news
- fact-checking on the internet

Honestly I think I'd like to to try to do this every Friday/Saturday when not on call, but we'll try the whole weekend this time.  It sounds so peaceful.  I plan on doing more reading, writing/journaling, and just watching/interacting w/ the kids.  Wish me luck!  Will report back Monday.

Lately they have been playing really well together in the evenings.  It makes me so happy!
