It's been an eventful week around here. My son's been sick for a week, we had a tornado and in the process of tilling up my entire front flower bed, I managed to cut the line providing internet service to the house. Needless to say, this has made me the least popular guy in the house.
It did provide the opportunity to do something I've been wanting to do for awhile. We're going dark at my house this week. No internet, no tv, no video games and no blogging. My kids have become entirely too "gadget" dependent and I want to get them off the couch doing other things. We'll play their favorite board games, shoot some hoops, play catch, ride bikes...whatever they want to do that doesn't involve one of their electronic gadgets.
I'm not above a little cheating here and there, so I may comment on a blog or two, but I won't be posting anything and I won't be checking in that often. I look forward to returning to normal next week.
Now if someone can just tell me what normal is...
