Do Not Disturb

One of the best features of my iPhone is the "Do Not Disturb" feature.  It keeps your phone from alerting you until you choose to, or for a certain period of time.  Since I am trying to be a better mother and more attentive to those in my real life, I am using the feature along with my daughter hiding my phone in her room when I get home.  I must say, the last two days have been awesome, but this feels like quitting smoking.  I don't know what to do with my hands. As I waited for dinner to cook, I was just looking around trying to fill that void of mindlessly staring at my screen for hours would fill.  I can say, I am a lot more productive than I have been and I am getting THE best sleep of my life.  I used to blame my commute for the reason I could not get into bed by nine.  Lies and fairy tales.  It's because I would be on my phone waiting for J to text me or stalking everyone by Instagram.  My sister said something very profound the other day. "Your online life is both fictional and fractional."  She is right.  I am not enjoying a lot of moments in life because I am too busy documenting.  So if you try to call me after 7pm or on the weekends....I am :)
