Turn off Your TV Week!

We did it!
Day 7 of "Turn off Your TV WEEK"!
We rock...
Our kids don't watch all that much anyway, just a few shows on Noggin.
Even HobbyHubby and I haven't watched a thing.
It is easy when we realize how the TV is just on for noise in the evenings anyway.
I'd like to say that we got so much more done around here...
The truth is that we both just read more, which is a good thing!
We are thinking of opting for no TV Monday through Friday as a permanent rule....
We went years without cable so this shouldn't be such a stretch...
What are the TV habits at your house?

Happy Hobbies!

TV watching....I don't think I do that much - but actually it is on more than I think....While working on the computer it is often on....so it doesn't have my full attention....Eckhart Tolle says that tv has stimulated an increase in ADD and ADHD in kids - and that adults watch to go "unconscious" - which is true for me personally - I watch when I want to escape my world - - and how much better would it be to escape while reading or sewing.....

I don't have a TV, so whatever I watch is somewhere else anyway. I wish I had a TV/DVD player so that I could watch movies once in awhile.
