Eckert Family Light Out Week
So our Lights out week is about to start. Kirsten and I have been talking about this for a long time. Almost two years. We plan to unplug everything electronic and not use anything that runs on batteries as well. There may be times we use the car but our goal is to keep those times to a minimum. I won’t be able to figure out my calorie burn or watch biggest loser but I’m excited about spending time away from the distractions. I’m looking forward to cooking all our meals on the open fire. Our diets will be a little crazy and my journaling will be done old school (pen and paper) I’ll have to figure out how well I did on Easter Sunday. That will be the first time we turn everything back on. Our plan is to do this for seven days. It will be like camping (not my favorite). I’m hoping my kids enjoy the time together. We will be avoiding processed foods too. Kirsten and I are trying to make the experience like it would have been at the turn of the century. Kya was telling me the stuff she liked and if it was invented before the 1900’s we can eat it. Smore’s and hot dogs were so she is super happy. I know hot dogs are processed so that may be a lunch choice. Kirsten and I will be off the grid when we are not at work. I will not be looking at my personal Facebook stuff but I will be doing anything computer related to getting my job done. Kirsten and I are not taking time off of work for this . I’ll be with the kids in and am and Kirsten gets them in the afternoon. Then we have a family meal and games together in the evening. Hopefully the weather is nice. My cellphone will not be one during our lights out week. If you need me for church related stuff please call the church at 815-235-2824 same for Kirsten. Otherwise we will have a spot by the fire waiting for you if you want to stop buy and visit.
