So, I spent my first day at work in my new wrist brace to help treat my first ever flare up of tendonitis. I got lots of questions about it and several compliments that it matched my outfit (all beige – brace, shirt, pants.) I’d be lying if I said that wasn’t intentional. It was a little difficult typing and getting things in and out of my pocket, but I managed OK. I just hope it gets better soon so I can start bowling again (for practice) before our new league starts in September. (Did I mention we’re leaving our old bowling league and joining a new one?)
I have, essentially, left Facebook. I’ve removed almost all the content I had on there and informed my FB circle of friends and acquaintances via status update that I will not be visiting or posting much if at all for the forseeable future and may deactivate my account altogether at some point. Although I have joined Google+, I plan on limiting my use of it and the people I connect with there and do NOT plan on it being my “new Facebook.” Among many of the changes I am making in my life lately, I am decreasing my on-line presence to a vast degree. I will continue to blog (although not daily, as you can tell), visit and comment on other blogs, and respond to texts and e-mails, and I will visit and post on Google +, albeit to a far lesser to degree than I did on FB; also, I will keep my FB account active (for now) and respond to posts on my wall or messages sent to me, but I have deleted most of my other chat and on-line accounts. I believe I spread myself way to thin, invested too little in too many people and spent way too much time chatting on-line instead of doing things I like, being active and spending time with people in person. I’m looking to invest more in my life, my husband, my home and my good friends. Losing Clyde and another month to sickness has really driven home the fact that life is short and you have to spend what time you have with the people, in the places, and doing the things, that matter most to you, because you never know how much or how little time you have. It’s time to purge my life of the non-essential, in every aspect of my life, and make sure I’m not wasting my time with things and people that just don’t add to my life, positively, any more.
