So, you know that time of day when your kids are up in bed (sorta) and you are ready to relax? What do you do? Do you retreat to the computer or television or are you energetic and go exercise or crafting? Maybe you have some studying to do or like a good book?
At our house the television reigns. At least it did until we cut the cable. Yes. This week we got rid of the television in an effort to get back into a relationship with each other and things that are truly important to us. This is going to be a little hard as some of us (me) had a clicker problem and would sit for hours with nothing to watch. Others (the kids) will be sorely disappointed on Saturday morning when the endless hours of cartoons will not be available.
The plan. Well, I have many dvd's and am happy to trade with my neighbors. The library hasn't seen us in a while. We will add that to the list of possibilities. Games will be dusted off as well as the running shoes.
What amount of television is ok for you and your family? Could you cut some out or cut it out altogether?
Let me know what you do to keep busy in the evening. Oh... and wish us luck. I may need some dark chocolate to get through this first weekend.
