We've been TV-free and computer-free for a few weeks now, and I am SO LOVING IT!!! I use the public computer at the library once a week for an hour to check email and MDC and whatnot. I've started a parenting journal and a personal journal, and just totally enjoying playing with my kids. Family time just means so much more!

I am going through much personal transformation now. My ExH and I split in Oct, and I am growing so much personally and spiritually. I've made a decision to identify things that are good for me and my kids, and the things not so good, and I am holding on to the good things and getting rid of what I don't need. The journaling really helps, since I am such a visual thinker. I need to see things written in order to really take it in.

See you next week!

Tis the season, for hot apple cider!

TV-free life is wonderful! For Christmas I got my kids a bunch of games and books and projects that we can do together, and they are so excited about all the cool stuff we get to do! :

Congrats! Best wishes on your journey.

I took a break from the computer when mine crashed a couple of years ago and already had no TV reception...it was great. I got so much done and felt very centered.

Being right is not always fair, but being fair is always right
