The Real Life....

This is the story. Of six people. Living in the same house. With no T.v. And only two computers and themselves for entertainment. This is what happens when you stop watching TV and start living...a real life.

Nothing.

Yep, we got rid of the Ol' boob tube, a few weeks back. And since then we have read, taught the children spades (although that didn't last very long. The request for a hold 'em tourney, or a round of baseball or 52 quickly shot down the fun of making person eat a book or go short.) And played board games.

The kids now call them "Bored" games. We have learned that clue is only fun once every six months. Darth Vader doesn't fly across the room as well as Luke Skywalker. And even with no T.V. chores still get left undone, and there is never any homework. The Puppy and Cat playing can be concidered "Quality Entertainment" because it is less boring than watching the grass grow.

You know things have hit an all time low when...the other night we were all sitting around the computer..watching YouTube videos together.

So maybe it's time to give in..and get another Tv? we will see.

You held out for longer than I thought you would. Four kids, used to having TV, beats three that had never had it at home. Kudos to you and to the kidlets, too!

Man, I use to love Clue. It is amazing how the times have changed since we were kids. The image of everyone crowded around the computer watching Youtube cracked me up!

LOL- The image of y'all clustered around the computer made me laugh. My son got banned from the computer and TV (and playstation) last weekend because of bad grades and he nearly drove me crazy!

LOL, Mom, But once we got the Tv, specially the color one..you couldn't get us to give it up.

Yep, times of changed..and forgot to take me with it Kappa. The new clue is cool instead of just colored pieces from a left over sorry game, you actually get little people now.

Soccer Mom! how great to see you here. How is my favorite Texas lie detector? Yeah having one kid grounded from the TV is bad. We are going a little stir crazy here too. But, we decided to hold out a little longer afore getting another box.
