Journaling reads: Getting rid of TV has drastically changed our family's night-time routine. The most surprising change is that my husband has turned into a bookworm. For the first 4 years of marriage, Steve didn't read books. He is very literate but he would only read news articles or a few passages from the bible at a time. Then, a few months ago, I witnessed him reading a book cover to cover! Not all in one sitting, of course. But he did read the whole thing. One book led to another, and now this is the sight I see in our bed after supper – my man resting on his elbow, with his chin in his hand, looking down at the page in front of him. It's a sight I never thought I'd see. I read more, too. But most of what I read is just depressing theoretical stuff. Steve reads about more practical matters that he can use in his daily life. He educates himself about nutrition, and now our family lives on whole foods and kefir thanks to his efforts. Our family should live long healthy lives thanks to him. I love trying his new recipes and I consider it to be one more benefit to cutting off TV. Plus, did I mention, I love this pose!
