Technology Free Week

Ok, I have received lots of encouragement about going tv free, so......we will be having a completely free technology week next week. Basically in order to entice my hubby and daughter to give up their television, I agreed to give up the computer. Yes, I do spend a good amount of morning time on the computer. Much of that time is spent doing research for articles or projects that I want to do around the farm, but still... So I will try to get quite a bit of blog posts done this weekend to tide everyone over for next week. If all goes well maybe we can get rid of the television all together. I think going without for a whole week is a good start. I am prepared to take what I can get in baby steps if that is what we have to do to break our family of this terrible addiction. God bless and thanks for all the encouragement.

Good for you! Trust me, once it's gone you get used it and your glad it's out of the way to make room for better family time. Another plus is everyone starts to get active, thinking, and creative. A good tip is a day before no TV week, make a trip to the library if you can, and bring home a load of books- I mean a load. With no TV around and a stack of books placed conveniently within arm's length, they just might pick them up! Good luck!

Congratulations to your family for taking this step! I think you'll be pleased. I agree with the other comment about visiting the library. Since cancelling TV I've found that I can now sit and read a book that I just could never seem to find the time for before. I'm so anxious to see how this goes for your family!

P.S. It was neat to see that you had linked to my blog earlier this week. Thank you!

I'm not sure I could willingly do this, but probably could if it were to better my family. I hope your hubby and kids will enjoy their week w/o TV and be ready to give it up completely! See ya in a week!
