What I learned last week

I survived Screen Free Week  
 and learned that the only time I missed television was in the mornings. After I feed kids and clean up the kitchen, I retreat to my bedroom/bathroom to make myself semi presentable. I can't see my television from the bathroom, but I listen to Good Morning America.  When the local news comes on, I know it is time to gather kids and head to school.  I did not like not having that reference and found myself rushing on more than one occasion. I also learned that I can not read a telephone book anymore due to the minuscule printing.  I had to fire up the computer to look things up.  Instead of getting up at 5:00am to update this blog and peruse others, I got up at 5:00am and went through a pile of magazines and cut ideas from them and then tossed the rest.  I found that I missed my blogging friends.  I did check my E-Mail each morning as well since I have the fair coming in a week and needed to be in contact with my project members.  All in all, it was fine and I did it for the most part, but am glad to be back.
I also must tell you all that the comments you made regarding my journey post made me so happy I shared it with you!  Your kind words and encouragement touched me to the core. 
Thank you.

After reading your post I thought it sounded like a fun idea...I don't ever watch tv though and only check email and my store but it gave me an idea to find something necessary and see if I can ditch it for a week..parenting maybe???? just kidding!!!!!

Glad you survived!
I haven't been around blog land much lately but I have been far from screen free. I stare at a screen at work all day.
I sure miss blog land!
