Media and Marriage
In the 11 years of being together, I have noticed that our communication with each other has dwindled a bit. We used to talk a lot...about anything that happened during the day or something we heard about on the radio or where we would go out on a date. Now...our time talking is a few minutes here and there during the day. Not the quality time it used to be. I have noticed that our time, both Scott and I, on the computer has taken time from each other. Our computer time consists of Fox News, Facebook, Twitter, Email, Blogs, etc. Scott and I enjoy our time online, we have different interests...he likes politics and news. I like homeschooling and crafts. How many hours a day are we on? I really haven't paid attention, but I know it is more than we should be "logged on".
Being a part of Media Mondays has opened my eyes to the way technology has been allowed to take over in our lives, especially in our marriage. Time to change things for the better!
