Going Off

I've got stuff to share, but haven't had time or energy to say it of late. I'll get back to it shortly, but for now, we're switching off for one day a week. Not completely off, just computers, television, game systems and the like. A sort of low-tech family day. We decided we've been spending too much time staring at separate little glowing screens. So off we go. See you in a bit... and join us if you like.

Good idea! We all need to get away from the digital world & go enjoy the real world once in a while!

Awesome plan! I look forward to hearing how your family adjusts.

I will discuss the idea with my husband. At this point, he might actually be inclined to accept the *challenge* - a few years ago there's no way he'd even let me finish the sentence ;).

kk - I have a geek job too, so all powering off is subject to the requirements of employment.

We did this last weekend too, and I have to say, this weekend was harder. It was very hot and muggy, which shortened the list of desirable activities quite a bit. But I think it'll be nice once the heat backs off a bit.

It's surprising how many hours can disappear into these little screens.

Always good to take a media fast. Enjoy!
