Tranquil Tuesday

When E-Boogie and I first started dating I lived at The Nook in Dupont Circle and he was just up the hill in Adams-Morgan. We had very hectic schedules. At one point we came up with a plan to unplug. We fondly named it Tranquil Tuesday. We unplugged. No TV. No cell phones. No computers. We ignored the home phones. It was glorious. Everything could wait for one day. We would read and just be quiet together.

I encourage you all to take a just one night off from everything and be quiet. Read. Paint. Sing. Dance. Enjoy the quiet. Journal. Skip your blogs. Turn off Twitter. Ignore Facebook requests. Do yoga. Remember to thank God for your blessings and just enjoy the night.

I wish that I could say that we are really good at taking our own medicine and hold Tranquil Tuesday weekly. We don't. But it is a great idea, don't you think?

Thanks to all of my Book Club friends for suggesting such great books. I'm enjoying this one and just got to the section about Disney. Wild what EPCOT stands for. My reading is my most sacred quiet time.
