I am a T.V. junkie. So is my husband. Before we met, I had one television on the floor of my apartment that was only used to catch the weather when we had storms (we get tornadoes here) and veg-out watching Sex and the City on DVD when I was home sick.
When DH and I met, I thought we might not work well together when I found he had a 60" widescreen and every imagineable accessory. Turns out, he watches less T.V. than I do these days.
A few months ago, we went T.V. free for a week, and it was great. However, it's become a coping mechanism for me. At the end of a hard day or when unwinding for the evening, the T.V. is our crutch. We even find we're not accomplishing what we need to around the house sometimes.
I need as much help as you can offer. What are good alternatives, especially for the evening for DH and I (besides the obvious one- we're already TTC
)? I love to read and have a stack of library books on hand at all times. I practice the violin and clean, take the dog for walks and to the dog park. But, what about when we just want to unwind and take it easy? (Keep in mind, we're in the hot and humid, mosquito infested midwest. Not a great outdoor space this time of year.)
