As you may know, I’m currently working on a project to remove the clutter and excess in our home. Each week I try to give away or sell or throw out at least one thing. This week… we cancelled our cable.
Crazy? Maybe. Weird? Probably. Oddly terrifying? Definitely.
I am literally afraid to be without television. (Perhaps this would’ve been reason enough to get rid of it.) The thing is, we aren’t swearing off TV – we’re just canceling cable…and On Demand…and DVR. We are trading it in for a Hulu+ membership. And I’m worried about missing something.
Isn’t that crazy?! I’m so invested in television (something that isn’t real, by the way) that I’m actually worried about missing something. But I’m also hopeful that this will be good for us, healthy even. We watch far too much TV, including Mikayla. Though our main motivation for this switch was financial, I expect we will benefit in other ways as well. Not the least of which will be burning fewer brain cells on reality shows and, my personal favorite, NCIS marathons.
So, here’s to less TV and more…whatever people do when they aren’t watching TV.
Question: What’s something you can remove from your home this week?
