What happens when you don't have cable TV

I made the decision this week to have our cable TV turned off. For the Basic Expanded service I was paying $53/month. Money I could better use on other things.

I warned Sean & the kids that I was going to do this, but will still keep the internet.

No way we could not have cable and internet!!

I told the girls that all the shows we watch, we can watch on the computer, it will just be a day or so after the original air date.

I called in the request on Tuesday and today they finally turned it off. The house has been so quiet!

D has been reading her 6th Harry Potter book and is well on her way to finishing it. Something that wouldn't have happened so fast if the TV was on.

R has been reading a little bit more, too. But, tonight, most of her time was spent on the computer.

Doing research.

For things like this:

It's so annoying, yet I can't stop singing it!!

She was also watching the Britney/Brittany Glee episode.  

For the 4th time!!

I'm just waiting to see who's the first to complain this weekend that they're bored because there is no mind numbing TV channels to flip through, and the the same Disney & Nickelodeon shows to watch!

Then whine when I tell them that if they're so bored, there are dishes to wash and a floor to vacuum....


  1. I could TOTALLY live w/o TV but NOT a computer!

  2. Helen, I'm finding I can live w/o TV, too!! As long as I have a good book or 2 and the internet, I'll be just fine!!
