Alice & Dad had a little too much fun with the blue chalk.
Last night Lee had an after-work function so he wasn't home for dinner. So I put Alice to bed, made something to eat, and then was about to plop down on the couch to unwind in front of the TV when I remembered something.
We canceled our DirectTV earlier that day.
For the first time in my entire life, I am without a TV. And, I'll be honest. It feels strange to have it gone, like I've lost an old friend. But it also feels sort of liberating! We weren't watching countless hours of it a week but we oftentimes found ourselves slouched on the couch, aimlessly flipping channels for far too long.
It's not that I think TV is inherently bad, I'd just been watching a bit more than I'd like as of late (and not really much of quality, either). Add in how much we were paying a month for a bunch of channels we rarely watched and it was time to say goodbye.
Of course our TV will come with us to Utah and we will still watch movies and TV shows via our Apple TV. But it looks like no more Real Housewives... or Bachelor/Bachelorette for me.
Would you get rid of your TV? Or do you not watch all that much already? My TV-watching time was usually while Alice napped. Now what will I do with all that time? Read. Clean. Enjoy a quiet lunch. And definitely take more naps.
