The Two Best Choices I Made In January

1. Getting off Facebook
 I know bloggers are supposed to be all about social media, but I found myself getting annoyed at myself every time I spent time on Facebook. I didn't spend as much as a lot of people (I don't have that many friends! ), but I still felt like it was a waste of time. FOR ME....maybe you get a lot of benefit out of it. I'm not telling YOU to get off Facebook. I'm just saying it was a good choice for me. I don't even miss it and I can do much more productive things when I'm online. Now if someone will just tell me how to remove the badge from my sidebar...

2. Reading Large Family Logistics
This book is awesome! Wonderful! Superb! O.K. you get the idea. The author has 9 children so she knows what she's talking about, but I wish I would have had this book when I had 1 child. It's THAT good. It has helped me in so many ways, but particularly with our schedule. I want to read it slowly throughout the year to digest each part better. So encouraging and practical without weighing a mom down. Again, I'm not saying  you have to read it, but I would strongly encourage you to if you're a mom!


  1. I did the facebook thing lst year for about 4 months and I deleted it. It was good for me too.

  2. I LOVE Large Family Logistics! It has been super helpful with my schedule, too. I almost have all my laundry done by 4:00 today! I think we will make it. Thanks for taking a look at my blog, too.

  4. I have been off of Facebook for a year now and haven't regretted a moment of it. I blogged about it a while back. If you're interested in reading it, you can find it here:
    I agree that it seems to be strange not to have a Facebook account when you are a blogger, but it has certainly worked for me!

  5. @ Susan--my child that does laundry was sick today, so I was still doing laundry at 9 p.m. Grrr...but I love the afternoon chore time. When all kids are healthy, we get the house in shape quickly.

    @Krista--Loved your post...left you a comment

  6. @No Ordinary Me...glad I'm not the only one. Way to take charge of your time! :-)
