Cable...


For many years now I have complained about the television and its programs to my husband. I really don't like television and have wanted to get rid of it for years. So, my husband came to me last week and said that he agreed with me and he thought we should get rid of the cable television for the summer. We will see how that goes and then re-evaluate it in the fall. Of course I laughed and said that he would never go through with it and how was he going to make it all summer with out baseball. Well, to my surprise, he told me yesterday that he wanted me to call our cable company this morning and cancel our services. So, being the good wife that I am, I called this morning and cancelled our cable services. Now, there is a huge part of me excited because I really don't like television. But, there is a small part of me that is in panic mode, especially because today was a stormy day. This is teaching me that I have come to depend on something that I really don't like in the first place. How about that. It is also what the Lord has been showing me this past weekend. I am not putting Him first in all that I do. I have not been doing everything for the Lord and making Him my everything. So, today is the first day of June and a major life changing day for me. No more television, because as far as I am concerned there is nothing good on NBC, ABC, FOX or CBS and I have no desire to watch them. So, I will let you know how this change goes, but I am looking forward to an adventurous summer with my family and no television distractions.

We mostly use the TV to watch videos. My teens watch one or two shows a week.

I love your bright background.

That is awesome...I got rid of my cable not long ago to cut out expenses, and now I don't have the new digital box converter. I have been trying to decide whether to get one just to watch the basic channels, but I hardly ever watch it. I do watch DVDs or videos sometimes.
