Enter TV free tuesdays.
A few weeks back Andrew and I had a date night (funny how I use to think the term date night was a corny term used to define specific time spent with a husband... I mean why would you need a term when you did that all of the time... well I need that term now since date nights are necessary and do define when we actually spend quality one on one time together) after this date night I thought about how nice it was to spend time together away from the television, internet... you know... all of that technological noise... and proposed a perma date night... tv free tuesdays.
Andrew was game so tuesdays were officially declared tv and internet free in the evenings.
what a difference.
Don't get me wrong. We aren't sloths who sit idly in front of the tv day in and day out... but come 7 pm it is just so easy to through effort out the window and fall into a routine of laziness. I mean we have tons of quality family time together but our habit was to eat dinner and then sit on the couch and watch tv (or blog, or surf well usually both at the same time for me).
So far we've spent tuesdays doing yoga videos, having actual good conversations and throwing back a few glasses of good wine (okay the wine is likely cheap but the fact that it is wine makes it good).
Of course I sort of forget that we decided this every week and then come tuesday morning when I think about the day to come I realize that tonight will be quality...
Maybe we are the only ones who watch tv way too much... maybe not. But if you are like us, I dare you to try it. I think you will love it.
I know I do.
