DH is off to the fair!

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

After a much longer day in the office, DH and I made our way
down to catch and crate the chickens. DS2 came to help after
work. Everything went so smoothly and DH was in such a great
mood, even if he was leaving much later than planned. I even
helped him by packing most of his clothes and all of the food in
the cooler. After he left, I should have eaten supper but just
wanted to get more done. So I buzzed around in the basement.
I boxed up a lot of garbage and toted it to the curb. I would estimate
that I spent a good 2 hours between the farm and the cleaning.
I finally sat down to eat my salad with chicken, ranch dressing
and large glass of water. It tasted so good and it would have been
easy to just sit and watch TV. But I really wanted to clean one more
area before stopping for the night.
Now it is almost bedtime but before I close down shop for the night,
I will wish you all the best of days tomorrow. Do a little more than
you planned and feel the thrill of accomplishment.

    You were making the BEST choice at keeping at your 'to do' list. I have to say television is the BIGGEST time waster in America. And I can't say that I'm not sucked right into the brain numbing routine of plopping down in front of it at night.

It's so funny because as a kid I was brought up strict Southern Baptist and we didn't even own a television until I was about 13. My mom was a photo-journalist and a historical librarian and said that television and all the hogwash it placed in your mind rotted your brain.

She most likely was right, I devoted my time to writing, sewing, reading, and making puppets and putting on puppet shows. Just pure simple fun and maybe that is why to this day I don't mind being by myself. I can always entertain myself.

I have some friends that absolutely cannot BEAR to be alone, they will do ANYTHING to avoid it...hummmm maybe they had only television to distract their time growing up and never learned any self soothing methods...hummmm? A question worth pondering on why our kids are so unfocused today? Hummmm emoticon
