We play board games. The old standards, Monopoly, Scrabble and the like. Thanks to my mom we have been having fun with a new game called VisualEyes. It forces us to be creative and think outside the box.

Games are a great way to interact and keep the connection open. It's so easy to get lost in the craziness of our schedules. My youngest lets me know when it's been too long between game days. He asks when, where, how long? He keeps asking until we make it happen.

Since there is just dh and I, we will watch a movie together. Or he will watch some sports show and I will work on a craft or read.

Checked all boxes, except "watch sports on TV", though DH does watch sports, but not as a fill-in to combat the Winter season.

Boards games are a personal favourite of mine! Never did loose that part of my child-side!

In checking the "something else box", we also love to turn the lights out and with only the flickering of the fire in the fireplace, tell spooky stories.

Almost everything was checked except sports and video games. I'm not a very good video player, don't care much for video games.
