In the car, I listen to a popular morning drive show. It’s a little raunchy, but I’ve gotten used to it. I justify it by thinking, everyone at work will be talking about these DJs – I just need to fit in.
At work, I log in to my computer and immediately check the Web sites of ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and Fox. Assured the world isn’t ending at the moment, I turn on my IPod – a top 40 mix - and start to work. I have a praise music list, but that might offend some of my coworkers.
At lunch time, I again check Face book and twitter statuses; read and forward the latest urban legend via e-mail; and then surf the Web for YouTube videos and the most popular news stories. Before I know it an hour is gone, but I really need to keep up with current events – it’s such a fast-paced world.
Just before leaving work, I check important Web sites - E!, Style and People - I must keep up with the latest trends or what will people think?
I spend the drive home on my cell phone. The inventor of Bluetooth was a genius. This is quality time with my kids and spouse. There are so many activities in the evenings; we just don’t get a chance to talk.
At home, I spend hour on tread mill with inspirational reading – Cosmo, Elle, and Shape – I’m just trying to be healthy.
I multitask, simultaneously eating my microwave dinner, watching the most popular shows and surfing the Net. I do a final Weather Channel check (snow expected in Montana – good to know in Florida) and go to bed way too late. I’m so tired, God can’t possibly expect me to do a Bible study and pray at the end of such a busy day. I’ll do better tomorrow…
“O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; “ Psalm 63:1 (KJV)
