Why Don't You...
... turn off the TV more often?
... make a weekly tradition of family game night? Play old-fashioned games and eat simple foods like grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup.
... wear comfy shoes and drag everyone out for a long walk instead?
... end the evening with a family read aloud? See my sidebar for lots of books that please adults and children alike.
... add a great audiobook to your iPod and get busy with a dreaded task?
... sit around a talk for hours?
... read some of those magazines you never seem to get to?
... get started creating that quote journal?
... challenge your spouse to a few hands of double solitaire?
... use the time to pray, do yoga, meditate, think, count your blessings?
... light a fire, sit around it, and reminisce?
... go through your boxes of old photos and just enjoy them?
... read, read, read?
The picture is one I took in San Francisco in 2009. I originally posted it here.
