After reading through the comments last night about the TV, I want to say that I have no agenda. I am not advocating that because we’re turning off our Dish, you should too. It just plain doesn’t matter to me if you have it or not! If you love TV and feel like it’s a good use of your time and money . . great! There are plenty of things we do with our time and money that other folks would think weird or a waste. Whether you have zero channels or 10 channels or 1,000 channels . . if it makes you happy, you do not need to justify your position. For us, this has nothing to do with money. Yes, we’ll be saving $900 per year or we’ll be spending $900 per year on something else. The money isn’t going to make a lot of difference in our budget.
As far as us having Netflix or TV, it’s something we’ve decided to try . . no TV but yes, we’ll have Netflix.
On this blog, I tell you just about everything we do; everything we cook; everything we plant; every quilt I make; every quilt I think about making. Why should whether we have TV or not be any different? I’m simply saying what we’re doing. I’m not asking for your approval. I’m not asking you to do the same thing . . I’m merely stating what we’re doing!
We’re not taking our TVs out and chopping them up with the ax. If in 5 days or 10 days or 2 years, we decide we’d like to have it back, we make a phone call and they’re here to re-install it . . simple as that!
I will continue to report on here about how we’re making it or not making it without TV. It’s going to be a challenge but it’s a challenge we both are willing to take.
