I pulled the plug on cable. Pun absolutely intended. I’m not a huge TV person to begin with, but recently there’s been too many nights where I’ve found myself innocently sitting down after work to relax for “15” minutes in front of the tube and then suddenly I’m sucked in to a marathon of Real Housewives of anywhere. Yes, I’m self admittedly -and embarrassingly- a reality TV sucker. Bachelor? Yes please. Bachelor spin off? Sign me up! For me unplanned TV watching is a super non-essential time suck.
The decision to kick cable wasn’t that tough. Steve rarely watches it, and most shows we like we can get on Netflix or HuluPlus for a fraction of the price. So we decided to get rid of it, and use our 80 bucks and extra hours of our lives for better things. So far I’ve been super happy with our choice. In fact I’ve only missed cable twice in the month or so since we called it quits. Both times I ended up reading instead, something I used to say I had no time for. Which I now see meant I had no time for because I got sucked into watching an episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians. I even had time to make a silly drawing in photoshop to go along with this photo-less post! This doesn’t mean I think TV is evil, or will never watch it again, but for right now my life is better without it. Except for weekly viewings of the Bachelor with my girls. Which will remain in full effect- for “traditions” sake :)
love and candy,
