so...I have a bad habit of watching tv. I hate that I watch so much of it. It is truly a brain rotter. I could just sit there and just mindlessly watch it for a whole day. And then I feel horrible afterwards. I began knitting again in the process of seeking a better way to spend my time. Then I discovered podcasts, which began my love affair, but I can discus that some other time.
Then one evening after Kevin and I had eaten supper, we were just sitting on the couch together in the quiet. He was looking on his cell phone at cars and trucks, I was knitting. I had read somewhere that week about a couple who had sort of a date night where they picked out like a playlist and they just kind of hung out together. So for something that was different from watching tv, which is what we would normally do, I suggested doing something similar.
So he created a Pandora radio station for us to listen to and I kept on with my knitting. We occasionally talked with each other but not constantly. It was really nice to just sit and not have the constant mind-numbing noise of the tv going. Then I got to thinking and somehow came to the realization that Kevin probably does this more than I do. When I asked him, he told me that, yes, when he is at work he often sits in his room listening to music and looking at the Internet.
After I found that out, I felt kind of silly for thinking of how great an idea I had for us to do that! But he said he liked that we were doing it so that made me feel better. I can't wait for him to be home again so we can have another evening together.
