Toes in the Sand

Archive for the ‘unplugged’ Category

Last night we saw this before we went to bed.

Then this morning we woke up to this:

We had our very own Winter Wonderland.  I think that we received a total of 4.5 inches of snow. Yes, I know that is not a lot for those that are under 4-5 feet of snow right now. This is a once in a decade event for those in the southeast.

We built snowmen, snow angels, snow boarding snowmen and even threw a snowball or two.


I was blog-hopping and saw a post about someone’s unplugged goals for 2010. Unfortunately, I cannot find that post now to give credit. If it was your idea please leave me a comment so that I may give proper credit.

In the spirit of that post I set out to make my own “Unplugged Goals”

1. Spend at least an hour outside everyday.

2. Take a walk in the rain with my kids. I know that I won’t melt.

3. Go camping more often.

4. Read aloud more.

5. Get back into sewing & cross-stitch.

6. Organize my mind a room a month.

7. Run or walk a 3K at Thanksgiving.

8. Encourage Fire Rat to run his 5K.

9. Spend more time with my kids one on one.

10. Weekly Date Nights with Fire Rat. They will most likely be at home, but  hey it  doesn’t matter where we are. All that matters is who we are with.

I am not sure if my final goal is in the spirit of unplugged. I would like to buy a radio to listen to Sirus with. My kids love to listen to the classical, jazz and Broadway music in the car. I would love to bring that into the house more. Right now we use our digital cable’s music channels. I would like to not use the television as much.

This is just a part of goals for this year. I have some personal ones as well. Do you make resolutions or goals?
