Going Dark: Days 4 & 5

I didn’t write yesterday because there wasn’t much to say. We were busy with work and home stuff. Then we went to bed.

Tonight was about the same. Erika had volleyball practice, so Gaby took her and Cyrus while I went to the gym for an hour. Then we came home, made dinner while listening to Ziggy Stardust (Cyrus’s request: Mom, are you sad David Bowie died?). And then it was already 8:30. Cyrus and I read some Captain Underpants while Gaby finished up some loaves of bread.

He’s in bed. We’re in bed. The cats are settling down. It’s pretty much our bed time.

This is the time we might want to cheat. The tv is looking at us. We could turn on some netflix and no one would know; Cyrus is asleep. Erika is at her dad’s this weekend. It would be so easy. Except all of the discussion of what to watch. And, as you know, by the time it’s decided, it’s time for bed.

I’m not sure what the weekend holds, as it will be our first without the screens.

So fat this doesn’t seem like much of a challenge. But. It’s only day 5.

I’m curious if any of you have considered your own screen habits.

Today’s difficulty: very easy until maybe right now.
