What is the single biggest time-waster in your life, and what will you do about it this year?

An easy one.
Sooooo easy.

Facebook is my biggest time waster.

But, whaaaat? I'm supposed to do something about it?
Like ween myself off of it?
Because there are more important things to do than play Scrabble with friends and connect with other friends by looking through their photo albums? Or use the inbox feature to keep in touch with others at a somewhat deeper level? Or use the facebook event planning tool to invite friends to a real face to face gathering? Or use the chat feature to chat with my boy?

Really? This is a bad thing?


This is what I'll do.
I will fast from facebook once a month. I think I will fast from food on that day too. I did it in December and survived, so I know it's do-able.

What is your biggest time waster?

Three things I'm thankful for:
1. Chick flicks. Just watched Bridget Jones Diary and swooned during the Mr. Darcy kiss at the end.
2. The Bible. Had a Lectio session this morning and got a shivery moment when, after half an hour of reading n praying, I wrote this verse in my journal. And it wasn't until I actually wrote the verse in my own words that I think I got what God was trying to communicating to me:

"Know this - NOTHING can ever separate us from His love. Death can't. Life can't. The angels can't and the demons can't. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow and even the powers of hell can't keep God's love away. Whether we are high as the sky (on drugs) or as low as the ocean floor (with depression) NOTHING IN ALL CREATION WILL EVER BE ABLE TO SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF GOD."

3. My sister. Who drove over to my house this morning to do an emergency bang trim.

My biggest time waster is in the evenings when 5:30 or 6 rolls around and I figure I've done enough for the day and sit down and watch videos. I'll do that until 9:30 when I go upstairs to bed and read for a while. Oh how I wish I didn't need that 3 hours or so of tv to relax.
