It's Friday...I'm Fasting

I've been on a self-imposed fast from all adoption related internet groups, boards, blogs, etc. I am only checking my email and anything unrelated to adoption. At this for about 4 days now and I'm finding it quite refreshing!

I actually got a little bit of hopeful news relating to adoption in my email inbox during the last couple of days. I'm thinking this fasting thing is working out! Not sure how long I can do this, but I'm going to try it for awhile.

I have Google reader set up, though and I can see that some of my fave bloggers have updated recently. It's hard not to peek and see what's going on in their world, but I just think good thoughts for them and move on! I'll check in eventually.

I think it is possible that an adoption internet fast is harder for me than food. Well, maybe not, but it's a close race. Hope your bellies are full of nutritious meals, your spirits are full of peace and your inboxes overflow with good news.

Happy Friday!

PS: For a fun-raising Friday idea, I suggest watching the Olympics opening ceremony and eating foods from around the world. I'm letting my little one stay up late for some multi-cultural TV time!

Excellent idea. . .I just discovered a local mommies online forum. And I have been focusing more of my energy on meeting moms near me and getting plugged my adoption radar is a bit down. It has been refreshing not to be so bogged down with adoption overload. I have really been enjoying your blog!

I happened to stumble on your blog. I have considered fasting from the internet and world of adoption as well, but haven't found the strength yet. Perhaps I should read the book! Good for you. Keep it up! (for when your fast ends of course!) BTW, I travel on the 28th! Tiffanie
