A New Experiment

I can't remember where I read it, but it sounded like a great idea: for one night a week we do not turn on the TV.

Ever since Rhett's appearance, Chuck and I have certainly cut back on the TV watching. That doesn't mean we don't watch a lot of TV now; I only said we "cut back." So when I read this I thought it would be great for us. It's only one night a week, and really, we have TiVo, so how hard can it be?

I first pitched this idea on Sunday and brought it up again Monday. We agreed that Monday would be a perfect day for going TV-free. Of course, we weren't mentally prepared for it to start that soon. We'll start next week. Anyone want to join us?


  1. huh, a more appropriate "goal" for us - if i even call it that - is to schedule one nite a week that we actually relax and watch tv. :)

    good luck!

  2. this post is sooo not for your kind, emily. go away. :)

  3. we're the same as Emily...our TV is rarely on so we would have to schedule a time to actually watch something.

  4. We too have cut back on the TV. We don't get any stations so only movies. Surprisingly they get really old after awhile. Movies are different than TV.
    I think I need to modify your challenge to the computer and cut back there. It would be really hard though.
    Good Luck!
