Posting again

I haven't been posting because of the lack of anything interesting to say. So I am trying to change that! Recently we have been looking for ways to cut back just like everyone else. We have decided to try not having cable service.

There seems to be so little of interest to watch on television. Now that so many networks are doing a lot of reality shows, there is even less to watch. So this week I'm pretending that we have no television. I didn't realize how much I actually watched. It was usually in the background being partially ignored anyway. The house is much quieter without it.

Now that it is easy to watch favorite shows through websites and services like netflix, cable really seems an unneccesary expense.

The only thing I will miss is the news. Though CNN is mostly commentary anyway. I don't need them to tell me what to think. So I am looking for other news sources such as online newspapers and radio stations.

This should give me more time for writing my thoughts and doing more crafting which I love so much.

So the great experiment starts and we will see how important TV really is in my life.
