Sorry for the week away, and after I just got started!
Actually, I’m not sorry. It was a good week, and highly due to the cause of my abrupt blog hiatus. This past week my family did a week long “fast” from entertainment. Not abstaining from anything fun or entertaining, just the electronic, time consuming, fry your brain, wasting an hour on Facebook to check a two sentence comment, type entertainment.
No video games
Did I say no computers?
We do run a business, so computers for business only was allowed. But that even took willpower. I didn’t realize how much time I wasted while “working”.
No, we just played card games, puzzles, read books, cleaned stuff (actually we really cleaned, and just about everything got really cleaned), oh yes, and we talked. I forget that talking to pass the time can actually be fun.
My wife is especially neat to talk to. I forget this because we usually only talk when we are doing something, as in, parenting, grocery shopping, decision making, fighting, etc. But when we ran out of these things to talk about, we talked more like we did before, you guessed it, marriage.
Sadly, the TV access we have now is all my fault. When I lost my last job, we cut everything, cable included. TV time was limited to an occasional movie. That is until, feel my pain guys, football. One worthless football game that I thought I needed to watch ruined everything. I went out and bought an antenna for the tube, and instantly flushed our peaceful evenings down the toilet.
I have fought to get cable out, and finally did, and then I open the door, and begin the fight again.
So anyway, I am going to try to be back for a while. See you soon.
