Our home entertainment options are solely based on the internet. This means that when then internet goes down, all entertainment options go with it; no tv, video games, computer, Skype, etc. So this is what a weekend with two teenagers and no internet looks like. The kids threw their old school work into the fire in our new fire pit page by page. The boys pulled out some old building blocks and made Lord of the Rings towers. Because just building the towers wasn’t enough, they had to make them crash and video it in slow motion (which actually looked pretty cool, I must admit). Things got really desperate when we resorted to putting on gorilla slippers and terrorizing the cats.
I’m not a big TV watcher but do spend way too much time on my phone and on blogs. To be honest, I really enjoyed not having internet. Our teenagers spent time just hanging out with us with no distractions. Overall we have way too many entertainment options and way too many distractions. This weekend we were forced to unplug but I would choose to do it again anytime.
