Last week’s poll was the Best Comment of 2011 voting. Unfortunately lefty’s comment won and now I have to eat with him but there is good news, MSPD’s comment didn’t get a single vote. Yay.
This week’s poll idea comes courtesy of The Wife. She asks if you do anything to consciously take time away from all electronics in your home. We definitely do nothing of the sort ever. While we don’t watch TV nearly as much as the average household, we probably use our computers far more than the average. It’s a little hard for us not to. Between this site, the mommy group The Wife runs, school for me and work, it’s hard to get away from it. However we do turn it off sometimes, although not always together, when we sit down to read books.
Perhaps we should make a conscious effort to set aside specific times every day or at least each week to completely unplug. This should include TV, phone, computers, whatever. However with our schedule and my admitted addiction I just don’t know if it’s possible. Perhaps you all have some ideas on how we could do it–especially if you already do something similar.
So do you do anything to purposefully avoid electronics? Do you set aside time every day or week to do it or do you just randomly decide to hide from them? If you do do it (or would consider doing it) would you only do it selectively (certain devices) or do you think it would be better to just turn everything off at once? What would you do without electronics other than reading? Whatever you have to say about this one vote on the sidebar and then comment on below. After you do both of those things feel free to check out our expired polls in the archive or read through the previous posts about polls here.
