While I'm Away

This week we're doing a no TV week.  As we don't actually watch broadcast TV, we've come up with unique rules for ourselves.  We're not to watch videos at all (except creating videos is okay, which means some watching as part of the creative process) and we're to limit our on-line computer time to a reasonable amount.  We opted not to put a particular time limit on it, but leave it up to ourselves to be reasonable.  Any use of the computer for things like Rosetta Stone or word processing is okay without limit.

Monday evening I came home very briefly between work and class to have dinner with my family.  After I left, the two of them had to find a way to entertain themselves.

Meanwhile, they aren't the only ones adjusting to a new schedule which involves being home alone more often than previously.  I came home from doing some work trade at Do Jump while Davan was teaching there this week to find this:

Ranger had been doing a little living room rearranging.  Other than a lingering doggy odor on the couch, though, there was no harm done.  She has taken to sleeping on the couch when we aren't home.  She knows not to when we're here, but seems to think the rule doesn't apply when we're gone.

  1. Good for you guys on limiting screen time. I have been trying to do that some too. But this AM I actually had to work! :-(
