A SUMMER WITH NO TV ?
I was thinking last night about how I always have the TV on. I get up in the morning and walk downstairs, let the dogs out and turn the TV on. I make coffee, get ready for work, sit down at the computer and the TV is going in the background. Just before I leave, I corral the little ones up and scoot them into the laundry room. Leash up the others and flick off the TV.
When I return home after work, I walk in, let the dogs out, switch on the TV, change clothes and start dinner. The TV stays on until I go to bed.
Most of the time, I'm not even watching it. It's just background noise.
I do have my favorite programs like:
The Celebrity Apprentice.
And then I will start watching other shows before them, like
I admit that I watched most of "Dancing with the Stars"
but now that it's summer and everything is re-runs anyway and (sob) Oprah is gone, well...........
I've decided to leave the TV off. I get most of my info off of the Internet anyway and besides the Weatherman is never right. Nothing much happens around here in this town but the usual. If something DOES happen, my sister or co-workers can tell me.
Now I'm not going to ban myself completely. I WILL use it to watch my DVDs but I just thought that June 1st (which in MY mind is SUMMER!) would be a good time to turn it off!
Wish me luck! It might prove to be a hard habit to break since it's so automatic!
