Getting started

I usually wake up in the morning, check my e-mail and Facebook, get ready, log back into Facebook, make comments as appropriate while I eat my breakfast, and piddle my morning away reading about the minutiae of my friends\’ lives.

This morning I couldn\’t do that. It\’s day one of my Facebook Fast. I started reading chapter 1 of Phillipians trying to decide if I think I could begin to memorize it within the next few weeks. I think I can, at least some of it. I\’m going to continue working on that.

I\’ve plopped down at my desk a few times and opened a new window, like I normally would if I wanted to check in with the Facebook world. I\’ve been a little at a loss as to where to go if I can\’t turn to Facebook. I\’ve read a devotional on Proverbs 31. I registered for a new diet plan at Self magazine\’s website. I browsed Freecycle. I\’ve graded papers, worked on lesson plans, cleaned off my desk.

Hmm…it\’s just 9:45. I\’m going to  have to figure out a better way to spend my time.
