The Great Television Turn Off

So the hubs decided that this week we are not turning on the television. We're doing it old school and reading, listening to music and ****gasp**** talking. We both have things to study for, me for my Doula certification as I have my training class next week and he is studying for more networking certifications cause he's smart like that. Today is the first day and its a little weird. I'm a big background noise person, growing up in a large family you get used to living with a certain amount of insanity. So generally I will turn on the tv, radio and talk on the phone when I'm cooking dinner, its just whats normal to me. Not having that noise and commotion takes a little getting used to, it is nice though. We'll see if I can make it through the week without my smut. Now if he said no internet for the week, I think I would have started shaking and going into convulsions. :)
Take the challenge too, see if you can handle it. At least you know you won't miss any episodes of the office!

I like to turn music on when I'm in the kitchen. We live in a split level and the kitchen is on a separate's lonely. I could easily do the TV stoppage.

great idea! it's amazing how much you can get done without the TV on. ... although,we have DV-R - and that makes all the difference to me. I can watch more "quality" tv - with no commercials... ha! -- we've had satellite since Cali was born... it was the only way we could stay awake some of those long nights!
