I didn’t think it would last, but the Busy-Lazy family is taking this Ultimate TV-Turnoff thing pretty seriously. In fact, because the boy hasn’t been watching TV or playing video games much during the week, neither have busy daddy or I (save for watching the news in the morning before the boy wakes up). The net result, though, is that as soon as 6:00 PM strikes on Friday, we all go on a crazy media binge. We’re like dieters on our cheat day at an all-you-can-eat buffet.
Busy daddy has been couch surfing in the living room since he got home from work, watching cartoons and Project Runway, while the boy has been playing video games on the computer for the past two hours. I’ve been (sort of) watching A Gifted Man in the kitchen while filling out crazy amounts of paperwork and doing loads of laundry. I don’t think we’ve spoken more than six words to each other since dinner.
Laisser les bons temps rouler!
