Allie and I call the Internet the neenernet and we call surfing neening.
I've just imposed a rule of not neenin' before noon each day. Not even checking email is allowed.
I just decided enough is enough. Every freaking day I get on just to check for messages and I wind up getting sucked in, looking around for something interesting, not finding anything, and, worst of all, not writing. So no more.
Now when I wake up the first thing I do is turn on Freedom and set it so I can't get online until lunch time.
It's amazing how much it clears my mind and allows me to focus on what's really important.
