I had an idea early this week.
What would happen if we would have 1 hour per evening w/no t.v.?
I know. Sounds like it's on a lot. And in my opinion, it is. Others in my house would disagree.
I enjoy a good t.v. show just as much as the next person. I also enjoy quiet. Time to read. Play a game. Ponder. Talk.
One evening this week (as we were all gathered in front of the idiot box) I asked what would happen if we were to have an hour w/out t.v. each evening. Ahem. Not everyone was on board. Ok, I'm willing to make concessions. It is football season, you know.
I suggested maybe we begin with 2 evenings a week. Still didn't have everyone on my side but no one shot me down with a dirty look.
Last night it was only the two girls and me at home. They both had alot of studies to do as they are both preparing for tests in the next couple of days. No t.v.
Just the 3 of us, in the t.v. room, studying, quizzing and reading books. For over an hour.
2 nights a week. That's all I ask.
