So a few years ago, one of my best friends got me a book.
I liked it, and I read it….but it just kind of sat on my desk.
The book is “Every Monday Matters” and it gives you an assignment each Monday to help enhance your life. I always wanted to jump right in, but I never actually did. You know how that story goes, right?
This year, I decided, is the year.
Tim and I started last week with the first Monday, the assignment was to make a list of the most important things in your life. As I was making my list I thought, why not share this with all of my friends? So if you would like to join us….you can find the book at most stores and online.
It is chock full of interesting facts and mind-blowing statistics that get your brain gears grinding. Did you know that the average person spends 100 hours a year commuting to work compared to 80 hours of vacation time, which is why we need someone to get on that who time-travel thing.
I will also be posting the weekly challenge right here for anyone that wants to get down on the challenge with us.
Or tell us how hard this week is going to be. “Instead of watching reruns of Friends….go make some”
We would love to be ambitious and say we are giving up TV for the entire week, but let’s be honest here. Tim and I often have the TV on for background noise when we are working. We always eat dinner over the coffee table while couching it up to Law and Order (which we vow will change when there are kiddos cobbing onto our mac and cheese). We even leave the TV on while we sleep. That’s my fault because I can’t turn my brain off…did I do the dishes, what do I have to do tomorrow, how many calories were in that triple-chocolate-devil-creamy-mocha-cheesecake, I should work out more, that Gillian Flynn sure can write, yada yada yada.
So today, we are tuning out.
All TV’s will stay off and instead we will talk to each other….wish us luck.
Kidding obviously, but maybe we will like it so much that we will sell all our TV’s.
Have you ever gone without TV?
Think we can manage a whole day without Honey Boo Boo?
Will you be joining us?
