What I Learned...

I spend way too much time in front of the computer lately. I know I have said this before, but I will say it again-I am addicted to reading blogs. Today I was sitting and thinking about all the blogs I have read and realized I have actually learned and improved myself by doing so. Let me list the ways. . .I will start by writing about a really addicting site (if you like blogs) It is a site with tons of links to LDS women's blogs I guess this is the site I am really addicted to. I read one of a women who is a runner and she talked about beating her personal record and how satisfying that was, so this morning at the gym I worked really hard at running the entire tread-mill class (which I have never done) and I did! It was 45 minutes and 3.89 miles of continuous running, that might not be a big deal to some people, but It was for me I am a wimp-especially when it comes to running. The next thing I found on a certain blog was an amazing site developed to help plan menus for your family It lists all sorts of ideas for shopping, organizing your pantry, and tips on how to freeze meals. I don't mind cooking, but I hate having to decide what to cook and this site helps a lot. Oh, and it has a lot of ideas on lunches and breakfasts for kids, which I always struggle with. Moving on, I read a blog of a woman who teaches some sort of religion class maybe Sunday school, maybe seminary she didn't say but they were learning about the lives of the prophets and with each prophet she likes to cook the prophet's favorite food and take it to class. She told of waking up really early so she could make 33 mini loaves of bread and 8 normal loaves to take to class because whoever they were learning about loved bread and milk. WOW! that is magnifying your calling and it made me think that I needed to put more effort into my primary lessons. There are my excuses for reading so many blogs. I don't feel as guilty for gluing myself to the computer when I am actually learning something :) yeah I know I am pathetic.

Thanks for the great links!! See, not only are you learning things but you're also helping others by sharing what you learn! Plus, by keeping up with your blog you're helping the family to grow closer because now I feel included in all your family activities. :) There are good things about being addicted to the internet. :)

Oh Carrie - I SO get where you are coming from. I am addicted to blogs too - I love coming to the computer for a little ME time and checking mail and blogs. I can't get enough - thanks for sharing the interesting links.

I am so glad you like my site for LDS
Women Blogs. The site was inspired after reading so many women complain that their sites would not qualify for some of the "Big" LDS Blogs because they did not talk about "gospel topics" as much. I figured why complain and start one myself. To this date I have only removed 2 sites for not comforming to my standards of inclusion. They were hard choices to make but I felt I had to do it for my own integrity. :(
You are added today! I love your site name, and the background.

The sad thing is when I hang out with family and am telling a story about "a friend of mine had so-and-so happen." And then I realize it is just someone's blog whom I have never met... :-)

Hi there,

I found you on the LDS Women's blog list, so I'm having fun with it too! Thanks for the cute blog.

Hi, I just found your site. I really like this entry and feel the same way. I am spending too much time in front of the computer, too, but now I can look at it in a whole new way! I have learned from others, gotten great recipes, etc. So now I feel better about all of that! Thanks!
