Dataless Day 2

What better way to start our month of no TV and internet than by watching the SuperBowl!! Okay, I admit it. We specifically crafted the rules to make sure we could still watch the SuperBowl. The rule was that our TV would be unplugged.

We watched the SuperBowl at Shaun’s place.

Is that cheating? Eh, maybe. But the goal here isn’t to be stupid, it’s to stop stupidity. The SuperBowl is a gathering, a social event. It’s hardly Jen and me sitting at opposite ends of a couch looking at Facebook or Words with Friends for an hour without talking. Watching the SuperBowl with friends is good in the the same way that going out to a movie would be fine.

It’s a far more social experience than a binge-a-thon of Cupcake Wars.

AMERICA!

This morning America slapped me in the face with freedom. First as I drove to work a Bald Eagle swooped over the highway leaving behind jet trails of liberty. And then when I got to work? Boxes of free Sun Chips for all the employees.

Nothing says America like soaring eagles and free Sun Chips.

Deck Staining!

Before and After! Boom!

Deck

Aside: Do not underestimate a staining event. This took the two of us 4.5hrs to complete. The spindles felt like a marathon.

Please note: Not only did we stain the deck, we spray painted our grass a gross yellow color. Awesome!
