No TV and No Treats

We made it through our Multi-Media Fast for a Week. I have to be honest - I struggled the most. By Wednesday I was fighting some serious depression, worried about what e-mails I was missing. Sure every one of my blogger friends was going to drop me because of neglect. But I made it through and it was very good for our family. I cooked a lot more, spent a lot more time with my adorable boys, and read a couple of fabulous novels (I'll post the reviews later this week, Kathi Macias and Rachel Ann Nunes latest).
It was a great break, I would highly recommend trying it for a week (but make sure it's good weather).
You all remember that I pledged to not buy treats during the month of April and instead donate the money to charity? That isn't going quite as well as our No-TV pledge. It was my Stockton boy's b-day so I bought ice cream. The problem was I bought ice cream on Wednesday, by Friday it was gone, so Saturday I had to buy two more gallons for Sunday's b-day party. Sheila said I could just pay double, my contribution to charity is going to be huge!

  1. Sounds like a great idea! And I'm the worst one in my family, it would be hardest on me.

  2. I'm okay with no TV, not sure I could make it without treats, and I think I would have the same reaction you did regarding no computer, but the lesson is always the same. Life goes on and in the end, we really don't miss out all that much when we do take the break. We gain a lot with our families though. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Thanks, Karen and Laura for stopping by. I think the worst part of no computer is playing catchup!
