Yesterday evening I was very tired. Tired and feeling like not being able to think or do anything at all. So I switched on the TV and looked up for something to see. There was absolutely nothing interesting. Out of boredom I watched a (bad) film, and later on NCIS, and I just kept on watching and wondering why I am doing that.
In the past weeks I have been too busy to watch any TV. A few times I sat next to my daughter as she wanted me to see something together with her. I actually liked that, to see what she likes, and what her (pre-)teen series are all about. But except a documentary and a program that I have kept to rerun, I watched no TV. I did not even miss it.
I am not saying that I am banning the TV from our lives. There are still good films and programs when you feel like it. But there is so much more to at night… Now I am working (an procrastinating by writing this blog) and listening to my daughter practicing the piano!
