One Small Change - Week Seven

Yes, I know, for those of you keeping track, this is technically Week Eight, and I skipped Week Seven, but I am sure you will give me a pass.

I was debating about making this the week that I started composting the kitchen waste, but then:

Last night, instead of spending the evening reading blogs and stalking my Etsy shop, I sat on the sofa with a pile of glass beads and some memory wire (working on some inexpensive things for my market stand) and watched television with Geoff. He looked at me like I had given him a gift, "You are actually going to sit here with me?"

So, Week Seven's change - no more computer after 8PM. You may notice it takes me awhile to get to your latest posts, but I will read them eventually. From now on, after 8PM I can be found on the sofa, watching whatever it is my husband is watching. Even if it is some horrid reality show. I may have a pliers in my hand, but I will be there, on the sofa, keeping him company.

I know that's probably a hard one to do if you're anything like me. I'm sure he appreciates it!

I`m with you, Stephanie! Yesterday I sat on the sofa with Your bird in my hands and watched some movie (with half eye) with my husband. Because, I /we managed to pull off entire computer - free day here. All for honor of SaveTheEarth Day.

That is so important!

What Stilettoheights said really hit me. (right there in my thinker!)

I should be enjoying my own family more.

I am so amazed at how you are getting on with this Stephanie!! And this hit me like a brick too. It is too easy to just let etsy and work take over. So it will be this weeks small change for me too - you are an inspiration!

I have really been enjoying these - such a tremendous reminder that small changes can add up to huge shifts in one's life!
