Sometime last year, i initiated the No-TV Challenge...that was by choice...
my current no-tv challenge is NOT by choice.
Let me explain...
Since we moved, we have been having issues with our
cable/inernet provider and this has been frustrating.
The people that lived in our apartment before did not a
cable/internet connection so in order for us to get it,
the provider had to come out and initiate a connection.
There have been two appointments set and it's almost the end of the month
and NOTHING has been done as of yet.
THIS HAS BEEN FRUSTRATING BEYOND MEASURE.
We've been able to get away without internet by accessing the hotspot on my iphone.
Thank goodness!! But there has been no TV show watching for me.
I didn't realize i was a TV-holic until i didn't have access to TV shows.
I have watched all of Sex and the City DVDs all over again...
Mr. Pancakes is ready to have me committed.
And i am sure Baby Pancakes probably knows too much
about sex from listening to all the shows.
But I just need to have some noise in the house when i come home.
Soon there will be a baby and i won't need TV shows but in the meantime...
i need distraction.
Distractions like music doesn't do it.
And reading hasn't been doing it lately.
It's been a month without watching any of my shows
and you know what i haven't gone completely bonkers.
I do miss HGTV, Suze Orman, Golden Girls
and just random television shows like Saturday nights
Mr. Pancakes and i would watch Boxing on HBO
BUT aside from missing these shows....
i am NOT dying to watch TV shows.
I miss TV shows but i am not dying without them.
Which leads me to think perhaps, maybe
i can live without cable for the rest of my life.
This lead me to ask my fellow bloggers,
Have you gone without cable by choice
or NOT by choice and how have you dealt with it?
