Challenging myself

Three posts in one day?!?!?! Well...I've made a decision and feel that I must share.

I'm issuing myself a challenge. Tomorrow is another snow day, which means 4 day weekend. Such a nice gift. I've decided I'm shutting off the computer and unplugging the t.v. in our family room, starting tonight when I go to bed. The basement t.v. will still be available, if hubby needs his requisite t.v. watching fill. So - for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday - no computer or TV for me or the kids. It's a challenge. Really. I'm addicted to both. I've checked my blog, others' blogs, and my email on and off all day. I am consciously deciding to check in with my family and household duties and leaving the electronic addiction for a few days. Call it a detox. It shouldn't be that big of a deal, I've heard of some families doing it for a month. Heck, The Berenstain Bears (Brenna's favorite morning cartoon) even did it for a week. One New Year's resolution was to watch less television, so here I go. Trying to make good on at least one of those darned resolutions. I'll let you know how it goes. On Monday! I guess if anyone needs me - they'll have to use the telephone (perish the thought!).

Have a great weekend, we will - albeit a quiet one. Is is sick that I'm nervous and twitchy?

Good luck!

Hey, we're having a snow day too -- my university shut down at 3pm, and hubby spent a good 2 hrs shoveling us out. This is our second blizzard in a week (ahhh, Canada). Seeing as it's supposed to rain tonight and then freeze, we might be home tomorrow too ...

Beautiful pictures, btw.

As Mimi said we had a snow day last week which was lots of fun and of course I took pictures too!

Enjoy your detox. I think I need one too, I can't even work I my posts since all I do is read and comment.

Maybe later in the week...

I find it easier to unplug on the weekends with the husband around. But when it is just me and the kids - I need that tv. They out number me, and this helps even out the odds.
Good for you. Maybe I'll get brave...once the snow has melted and we can more readily get out of the house.
