Go "Mute for the Meal"

Mute For The Meal Challenge
My sister, Michele, has issued us a challenge for our Thanksgiving get together . . . go "Mute for the Meal".  No, this doesn't mean we don't talk to each other!  Rather, that IS what she wants us to do!  She is challenging us to put away all of our electronic devices for the period of time that we are sitting down to eat so we can actually talk to everyone!

I have to admit, I am terrible when it comes to checking my iPhone every 5 minutes, or I should probably say every 5 SECONDS.  I know I am distracted and I am sure it is annoying to others.  Our electronics have become so ingrained into our lives that we have gotten into habitually using them.  If we can turn them off for even just one hour, I think it would do me some good.

So, I am going to take the challenge.  I will mute my device and concentrate on conversing with my family - at least for the meal.

Will you take the challenge?  Let me know in the comments below and maybe we can tell of our experiences on Friday. . . Well that will be Black Friday . . . I may be looking for some great deals on my phone. . . well, sometime after Thanksgiving.  :)
