Farewell FarmVille, Hello Sparkpeople
Monday, March 21, 2011
This is what I know. I know that although spending time on the computer can sometimes be a time waster, any time I have spent on the Sparkpeople site is always time well spent. It sharpens my resolve, gives me great information, provides positive feedback and often times makes me smile.
This is what I also know. In the morning, I get up, take the dog out, make a cup of coffee and then sit down to my computer. Now, knowing what I know about my time spent on Sparkpeople, you would think that would be the first place I would go. But alas, no. I go right to my imaginary farm and harvest my imaginary wheat or onions or whatever. Frankly, just writing this makes me realize how bad this sounds!
So I declare today, no more! The farm is shutting down. If I have only 15 minutes in the morning I'm spending it doing something positive for me. I may log on to Sparkpeople, I may take the time to pack a healthy lunch, or who knows, I may even get some exercise in. The possibilities are limitless! And then this spring/summer, I will plant a REAL "farm" (garden). I'm sure it will be much more satisfying to harvest real veggies rather than virtual ones!
