The family and I were sitting around yesterday, enjoying some quality time together, when somebody mentioned how much time we spend on the internet/tv/ipod/ etc....
So my oldest child offered his dad a challenge - no computer games/tv shows for a week.
I sort of tuned out at that moment as the kids all laughed and upped the wages of the challenge. Soon everyone was involved. My daughter vowed to no ipod, my son no video games, etc...etc...(I secretly laughed, because I was not involved in the crazy challenge of no media week. Sweet! I'd be watching TV and playing my tunes while eating fudge as I sat in a super huge beanbag - which I don't have, but still....it would be awesome).
Then I heard the dreaded words, "I think Mom should give up Blogger for a week!"
"NOOOO!" I screamed (making everyone jump a little). I thought had so cleverly adverted the situation. Wrong! (Please sing as you say wrong, and emphasis the "g". For dramatic effect. Thanks.)
"I don't think she can do it." I heard, making the competitive part of me rise to the top.
"Oh yes I can," I snarled, giving them my oh-you-wanna-play eye-look thingy.
Everyone laughed again (I wasn't sure why this time, but I was sure it was because I was suckered into something ).
Then somebody said, "The winners will get pizza and rootbeer floats as an award." (Oh man, I was so there.)
So my blogger buddies, if you don't hear from me for a week, (yes, I will be unplugged from Tuesday to Tuesday - *cringe*) it's because I'm proving to my awesome family that yes, I can unplug - and they can too!
I will miss you! Have a great week everyone!
