No Voltage Evening

At My Guy's behest, we are having an electronics-free evening tonight. Yesterday, amid the Blogging, Playstationing, TVing, iPhoning and Crackberry text messaging, he looked at me and said, "Hey...how about sometime this week we actually just have a night where we cook together, have a real conversation and read books in bed?"

Wow.

Has it really come to that? Have we been so involved in our virtual relationships that our real relationship is suffering? I have heard of Second Life Widows...are we on the road to a virtual divorce? Do we really have to pencil in a night to shun all things distracting? I guess so.

So, tonight is the night.

I thought I'd get my blogging in at work so I'm not tempted to break the rules during our "quiet time."

Bet we're asleep by 8:15...

Or perhaps you'll go out for an evening spin in your Cooper Mini Buggy?

Hmmm. If I had a copy of Weird Al's Coolio riff, "Amish Paradise," I'd pass it to you. Alas, I don't.

I think that's awesome. Before our son was born, The hubby and I would (rarely) have a no TV night. Play a board game, listen to music, conversation, etc... The TV is actually on less often now, but we obviously don't devote the entire evening to doing things with just the two of us...

It's wonderful that it was his idea! Enjoy!

I need to institute this at the Whiskeymarie household too. At least once in a while.
Hopefully it won't kill us...
