New Year's Resolutions

It's the end of March. A good 3 months have passed since the New Year's Resolutions kicked into high gear. I'm not big on these but when I do start one, I like to think of it as more like a new challenge than a resolution. Resolutions are made to be broken, right?
Well, 2 challenges were set in front of me. 1. Watch less TV. 2. Complain less.

Since neither of these are the easiest accomplishments ever, I needed some reinforcements. For number one, I recruited my hubby to join in. He unplugged the TV in our bedroom and brought it to the lower level of our home. Amazingly, this decision has changed my life. We now watch way less TV because it's just so inconvenient. I'm in mourning though. I miss my HGTV and a few other shows I used to VEG out on but really, my life is much more productive presently. I did feel dumb though when I said today that I just found out Shawn Johnson (I LOVE SHAWN JOHNSON) was on Dancing With The Stars. People...it's like living in the early 1900's around here. I have very little contact with the outside world beyond my internet access. Thank goodness for internet.

Resolution #2? Well, I know have an outlet for my complaining...my blog. That doesn't count, right?

  1. We haven't watched TV at all since our move. Neither us or the kids. In fact, I've tried a few times last year to turn on Saturday a.m. cartoons for the kids, and they've responded w/ shutting off the TV. We don't even have the DVD player hooked up to it anymore, so its never even on. I'm thinking of getting rid of it all together b/c it takes up space.

    We used to get a lot of channels in PDX w/o cable, but w/ our rabbit ears. We don't get any here, which is why we went cold turkey. It's been great. After 9 months w/o one, I don't think we'll ever have one again.
