You know all too often after work we go home, have dinner and sit in front of the TV. Sometimes we don't even talk to each other as we watch TV. What happened to asking the person you live with, "How was your day?" and actually listening to them.
Recently my husband had a change in schedule. He use to work 2pm to 2am. Now he works from 7:30am until 5:30pm. He then goes to the gym and gets home at 7pm. So we eat when he gets in. Then like so many others, we sit down and watch TV. He looks over at me after a week of this and says, "Is this what people do in the evenings."
You know hearing him say this struck something in me. It is what people do, but why? There are so many things to do around Greenville, WHY DON'T WE GET OFF THE COUCH AND GET BUSY? My husband I decided that even if it is a walk around the neighborhood, we are not going to sit around and do nothing in the evenings.
So here are a few things I found to do around town...even better still some are free!
