This one is a simple easy to achieve goal.
A morning walk with Jack every day the weather permits.
We took one this morning and it was so nice and refreshing and I want to start everyday that way.

Another goal that I think will be easier to achieve: no internet during the day on the weekends.
This seems much easier to stick with than just completely cutting the internet out of everyday. It seems like such a silly thing to be addicted to, but apparently I am or I wouldn't be making goals to not use it! ha.
This also goes along with not wasting away the weekends. Nothing will get done if I am on the computer, I MUST START LIVING LIFE! No one is going to live it for me.

Today while watching The Watchmen Jack kept pointing at their ship and saying 'space bug'. This made me think that I should teach him the planets. This thought led to 'I really need to start sitting down with him and actually teaching him things'
Starting tomorrow that is exactly what I am going to do.
We will have alphabet time, number time, art time, space time, reading time. But all in a 'fun, keep the attention of a not yet two year old way'.
It will also help keep me off the computer. ha.

I am actually really excited about this.
Plus Jason is going to ask Z if he can carpool with him on Tuesdays and Thursdays so that I can have the car. Then Jack and I can take trips to the library and the playground!

The local paper is having a photo contest. 'Capture Clarksville' Once I read the rules, I think I am going to try and enter.

We are also trying to plan a camping trip! I am excited for this. I think Jack will have a blast.

FAIL.
I was on the computer multiple times today. I was originally going to call today a mild success, because I was only on when Jack was nursing or playing with Jason, but the point of this is NO internet during the day. So fail it is. I am not sure if tomorrow should be day 3 or day 1 though...

Jack and I leave for Maryland on saturday for a week. So I should be able to sail through this coming week without interneting during the day.


I have been thinking a little more about vegetarianism. Would a pescetarian diet be more fitting for me? I like that fish has DHA and that is very good for brain development, and Jack is at the crucial age for brain development. I am thinking that a mainly vegetarian diet with tuna once a week or so would suit me just fine. Tuna also has the benefit of being cheap, and right now anything that is good for you and cheap is a win in my book.

21 days to make or break a habit.
Habit I want to break:
Being on the internet constantly.

Habit I want to make:
Using all that time I wasted on the internet, doing something fun with Jack.

Seriously, why am I sitting on the internet while he plays by himself? Okay so I don't sit here all day long, every minute of the day. But I am always hoping on and off and telling Jack "hold on, let me just check this..."
So the plan is to not even turn the computer on until after Jack has gone to bed for the night.
Did I mention that this is due to being bored out of my skull? It is hard not having any friends in real life nearby. I yearn for adult conversation and at the moment the only place I can find that is online. Online is the really the only place I can find people who want to talk about the same things I want to talk about. Diapers, breastfeeding, green living...

I have told myself many many times that I will do this, but now is the time to stop saying and just do it.

This journal is about change afterall, this change will be a good one.

So they say you are your child's first teacher, and rolemodel. I need to be a better one. I need to be more hands on with him. I can not fail him at this most important time in his development.
