#SoCS – Sharpening my resolve


I’m having to sharpen my resolve to stay off Facebook and all the other time-wasters that take up my days if I let them. I have a busy couple of months ahead of me, and I can’t afford to dally anywhere.

I’m happy that my break time today consisted not of online pursuits but of walking around the block with Alex. It was a gorgeous day–not too hot, not too cold, and not humid at all–so it was a great day to get some exercise.

I wish I had somewhere to put a treadmill, so we could exercise when we’re unable to go outside. The cooler days remind me that we’ll be under feet of snow soon. At least I won’t have to worry about snow days… School is online until January at least anyway. The only reason not to go to school will be a power outage.

Imagine that.

Walking uphill both ways to get to the computer. In a snow storm.

Kids have got it tough these days, I tell ya.

  1. No snow days? That’s not fair. I’ll bet somebody somewhere makes that complaint.


  2. Many years from now, people will be saying, “When I was your age, all I had was [insert name of ancient computer here] for my online schooling. You kids have it too easy today.”


  3. Lol! Imagine! Ha! Kids are so lucky nowadays! ๐Ÿ˜€ all the mod cons!


  4. It has been so miserably hot and humid here I could not breathe standing still let alone walking. It is a much nicer temperature today. Glad you got some outdoor time instead of an overdose of FB.


  5. A walk is a very healthy substitute for social media.
    Well done. ๐Ÿ‘


  6. It’s a hard life ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ
