Taupe

Good morning and happy Wednesday!

We are back from a restful vacation and thankful for the family time outside of our normal day-to-day routine.

My biggest question right now is: how can we simulate the feeling of escape and togetherness while staying right at home? By instituting a media-free, work-free, errand-free and housework-free weekend? When the only thing on the schedule are a long list of games, crafts and activities together? The potential (while negating all of the challenges, time and not to mention costs related to traveling) would be enormous!

Could we even stick to those rules when we’re occupying the space that normally houses all of those things: tv, phones, laundry, computers?!

That would take some serious commitment.

Who is up for it?!

  • Anh, we are so on the same page! Our family recently achieved this accidentally! We were going to a favourite restaurant, but instead of driving we took public transit (like a city train / above-ground subway). I was amazed at how everything took a different feel, and we hopped on/hopped off to a playground. It took about 35 min to travel vs. 20 min, but the novelty and adventure were worth the extra time.

    I think taking any different mode of transportation (biking, bus, etc) to a regular haunt, along with your other suggestions, would lend to an escape feel.
