Unplugged

As I stated for one of our New Years Resolutions, we decided to have an unplugged Thursday every week. Instead, we'll use that time to connect to each other and our family: play time, board games, just talking, etc. Last night was our first one! While Jeffrey was awake, it was pretty easy. We were super productive, though! We did some major cleaning- even in the catastrophe of an office (which is now pretty manageable). We had family dinner, as usual, and then did a bit more cleaning. It probably wasn't the best family time, but we'll have that free time this weekend instead. A lot better than one of just playing with Jeffrey while the other just sits on the computer/TV like what happens more frequently than I would like. After he went to sleep (at his usual time, so it seems we may be recovered from New Years Eve now), we weren't completely unplugged. It still fit into the point of the evening, though! We played Trivial Pursuit, and our version has the DVD for the pie questions. It was a lot of fun, especially because I won ;) I'm glad that we started this, and I look forward to the rest of the years' Unplugged Thursdays!
