less tv = more laundry

After too many bickerings about who wants to - or gets to - watch some show/movie/episode on Netflix, Amazon, etc... we're cutting out almost all media intake for a while.  We haven't had cable tv since about 2004, but still... we all know that youtube can get consuming.  I wish it wasn't so, but too often I've allowed especially the boys to "veg out" for far too long.  I have to admit that it's easier at times to keep them occupied if I have other things to take care of - but it's grown into an unhealthy dependency.

So, tonight we took off for the park after dinner.  I grabbed my mitt, bat and some balls and we headed toward the schoolyard.  After about a hundred pitches, swings, misses and some hits - I got ambushed, tackled... so we rolled around wrestling and laughing in the wet grass and mud.

we all came back damp and filthy, but it was a great night together.

i don't have any problem doing more laundry for that.

Guard your heart above all else, for it is the source of life.
