Remember this?

Let’s call this The Sequel. Get ready, for TV- Free August!

Yes, I know we just got the new flat screen....but the summer has flown by so far, and I’d like to attempt to slow it back to a more peaceful pace. I'm hopeful that eliminating the boob-tube option, will open up our evenings and weekends for more productive (or at least less pointless) activities. We're one day in, and have already done laundry, cleaned the house, researched and booked a vacation, and written this here blog. And we've still got time to run some errands and get frozen yogurt (it's like Ice Cream Sundays lite). Not bad for day 1, huh?

I've got high hopes for the rest of the month....I'll keep you posted on how it goes. And let us know if you'd like to join the challenge. Who knows what 30 days could do for you?

In a related story- I am now in the market for a ping pong table. So if you would like to donate one to the Bowdens Beat Boredom fund, we would happily accept.

P.P.S. In case you're wondering, I will still be watching the finale episodes of The Bachelorette, and Bethenny Getting Married. Because this thing was my idea, so we play by my rules.

  2. After eating too much dinner and THEN frozen yogurt, I wanted to cheat and veg out in front of the TV, but I held strong and lapsed into a food coma on the couch. But at least I didn't watch TV!

    Also - I'm taping shark week.
