No technology: Day Four (kind of)

Day Four! Last Day! I am sure my kids are silently doing the "Happy Dance" Lord knows I am too! The whining is getting to me...I am cracking...it is a slow and annoying crack...but a crack just the same.

I wake up at 5:00am. To my 200 pound dog trying to bulldoze his way upstairs to my room! Why? Because a thunderstorm is on top of us. And he, my friend, is a wimp when it comes to loud noises.

As I knew last night, we were going to get hit by a Derecho. Last year we got hit by one. And hit hard! We had trees  down and no electricity for a week. Yay Me!

Once I was able to calm Forest down, I did something....bad... bad...BAD!!!

I had to {gasp!} turn the TV to the Weather Channel! Yep! I did it! And guess what happened!

If you said that the kids popped out of bed and came scurrying downstairs, you would be correct!

They turned the corner with smiles! What was that wonderful noise they were hearing from the big black box? Glorious TV! That is what!

They did not even care that it was just pictures of radar. It was TV. And it was ON!!

I gave them 15 minutes and then kicked them out of the room. They "moaned" as they left the room.

We got through the storm. It did not hit us like the weathermen thought it would. Very grateful for that.

The kids were upstairs. Playing quietly.

They went outside and played.

No real complaining.

We then had to go to Dress Rehearsal. I brought card games again, but I knew one of Jet's friends would be there to play with. So, how bad could it be. Well, his friend had an iPod. I knew I was not going to be able to monitor the boys during dress rehearsal. So, I let it be. Did find out that Jet played with the iPod while I was in the auditorium. For 10 minutes or so. Oh well. It is day four. I am EXHAUSTED! I caved. It was 8:00pm. I did not care.

Went home...and they went to bed. Tomorrow they will wake up. Turn on the TV. And the Wii.

It is over...or is it?

During these 4 days, I received an email from Michaels. They are having a 7 week art program for kids who are 5 years old and up.. 3 times a week (Monday, Wed, Friday). It is a 2 hour class for $2!!!! 

It is called Passport to Imagination!

here is the link.. http://www.michaels.com/Passport/pti,default,pg.html

.. it looks like a lot of fun for them.. and it is exactly what I wanted to do for them...ignite their imagination...

I have planned that for the summer, "No Tech" Days will be Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

I think it will be good for them...and for the family.

I will keep you updated.....thanks for reading...

I'm so excited my husband is back after he left me for another woman. My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We are happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr OGUNDU can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give it a trial. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 24 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr OGUNDU. If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. Email him at: drogunduspellcaster@gmail.com
