I decided yesterday to take most of the day off from the Internet and TV. I cheated quite a bit, but just being less "plugged in" was a very good thing.
Chickie and I had fun decorating the Christmas tree.
Zoodle and I "talked" to each other. (He can say "ba ba ba" now, and occasionally other syllables!)
I read two books to Chickie and enjoyed doing character voices.
I did lots of Christmas decorating, and cooked, and cleaned up the kitchen, and felt generally productive.
I want this to be a regular thing. Maybe every Thursday will now be Less Plugged In Day. This isn't about sticking to a strict set of rules; it's about having enough silence in my life to enjoy the things that are truly important.
And for me, it's hard. Think I can do it? Think you can do it?
P.S. I'll be matching people up for the next Art Pen Pal Project by this weekend (hopefully.) If you're interested in being involved, please check out this post. It'll be fun!
