A Perfect Waste of Time

It's been a very, very long weekend. And as I promised God, I will sit down now. It's 7:26 p.m. on Sunday evening and both boys are fed, bathed and snug as bugs in their beds. We have completely unpacked. Unpacking takes much longer now that I have to unpack for three! But, being that almost all of our clothes were dirty, they all went in the hamper!! EASY!
 Jim and I look at each other, and let out long sighs, let's go watch some t.v.!!! Jim would beg to differ with me, but I don't think anything on television is useful for our minds. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8 Jim would like to believe that ESPN and the news are right, true, lovely?
However, we both agree that the television is definitely a mind clearing device. We can sit, stare and think about absolutely nothing! It's a perfect waste of our time when we don't abuse it. We don't watch anything until our boys are in the bed, except sports and news, occasionally. We are strict with ourselves in guarding our hearts and minds, so we usually TiVo our favorite detective and spy shows and just stare aimlessly, allowing our minds a rest.
See you tomorrow, refreshed, bushy-eyed and ready to do the wife & mommy thing all over again!
