Life Without Television
When my family’s only television set went to the repair shop the other day, my parents, my sister, and I thought we would have a terrible week. How could we get through the long evenings in such a quiet house? What would it be like without all the shows to keep us company? We soon realized, though, that living without television for a while was a stroke of good fortune. It became easy of us to enjoy some activities alone, to complete some postpone chores, and to spend rewarding time with each other and friends.
First of all, with no television to compete for our time, we found plenty of hours for personal interests. We all read more that week than we had read more that week than we had read during the six months before, ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
In addition, my sister and I both stopped procrastinating with our homework. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________.
Second, we did chores that had been hanging over our heads for too long. There were many jobs around the house that had needed attention for some time. _____________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________.
We also had a chance to do some long-postponed shopping....
