Adios TV!

About a month ago, my husband and I decided we would put our family room TV into storage. Well, this is week 3 and it is going great! TV time has been replaced by even more book reading, game playing, puzzles, playing outside, music on the XM, and just spending quality time with each other. We didn't watch much TV in the first place, but to completely get rid of it has provided us with so much enjoyment. We have a small TV in our bedroom, so we still have Friday family movie nights, and we actually enjoy them more!

AWESOME! We did a 40 day tv fast last year and it was so freeing.

What a wonderful idea. Our TV died about a month ago so we were kind of forced into the same thing. We really don't even miss it! If you have a sec, visit me! I'm hosting a huge Mother's Day giveaway and blog party for moms beginning this next week...check out the doorprizes...http://notesfrommynest.blogspot.com/2008/04/sneak-peek.html
