Headed back toward seasonal weather this weekend. I haven’t had my coat on in two weeks.
Beginning next week, each little boy who lives at our house gets 10 hours per week of video game time, as measured on a countdown timer. (That’s any video game: handheld, console, or PC.) More than one person has told me that sounds like a lot, but I’m estimating it’s a 20-30% reduction for our boys. (Perhaps that means we let it get too far before reining it in, or perhaps it means our critics are underestimating what’s happening at their houses.) There’ll be one warning the first week, but after that, any detected playing without the timer running takes it instantly to zero for the week.
I tried a headlight restoration product on Lea’s van last weekend. (It was Meguiar’s, but I think they’re probably all about the same.) It worked well, though it’s definitely a job that requires finesse if you want it to look perfect. The first little bit of work will get you a lot of the way there, though.
