doing the right thing for all the wrong reasons
Last Saturday I decided that cable was ridiculously expensive and that we don't have time to watch TV anyway. Completely spur of the moment. I was so focused on returning the cable boxes and whatnot on Monday morning that I forgot something else super important (more on that little episode soon). All boxes were returned and the extra TV in the bonus room went to live in the basement. Ty still has the ginormous one downstairs for when he needs to kill aliens and zombies with his brothers, and for watching movies with the peanuts on movie nights and sometimes rainy afternoons.. I totally dig being TV-free, but for all the wrong reasons. I do, of course, love that Tommy doesn't get to watch commercials any more. He has totally stopped bugging me to buy him a Snuggie. I love that when I do watch a show (on hulu for free) it only has one commercial the whole show. I love that my boys are back to using their imaginations a little more and vegging out a little less. I love the quiet house. Mostly though, I love how much money is NOT going out of my bank account every month to a company that has a monopoly.
