I often think about these things when it comes to social media/blogging/etc. We put so much of ourselves out there (and probably our kids too) wanting to be "liked." Sometimes I get a little squeamish about it and wonder where to draw the line. When I heard about this new "vine app," I first thought, "Not another one." Then I got sucked in to the cool and wanted to play with the fun features and then this morning there was porn in the feed. I thought, "What am I doing?!" I certainly don't need another distraction. Sometimes as a stay at home mom I crave that outlet to the outside world, to see what other adults are doing. In the meantime, I feel like it keeps me from being present with my kids. Huge problem. I'm going to challenge myself this week to not look at the internet at all when Matilda is awake. It's toxic I think for our relationships with our littles. Praying about that.
We are full speed ahead on the renovations and right now my heart is anxious about finding the perfect renters for our old home. I know God's hand is on this move, it's just a little scary right now. We're hoping to get all the painting and cleaning done this week. Things are moving slow on that end. It's taken us an entire month to fully move (and that's just temporarily!). I can't wait to look back on all of this and be amazed that we made it through it all relatively unscathed.
