|On the couch|
A few weeks later, we talked about some more ideas and again this idea was brought up. During that conversation we mentioned a way we could maybe trim back in that area, but not completely get rid of it.
Yesterday I came home to a PERFECTLY, SPOTLESSLY clean house and a husband who was in the midst of scrubbing our kitchen counters. That's never a good sign in our household, because if you know me and my husband, you know that I am the cleaner and he is the mess-maker. He only gets the urge to do deep cleanings when we're having people over or, in the case of yesterday, when he is really stressed. Again we chatted about the cost of daycare tripling and the effect that it is having on our finances and we decided that there was no reason to put off the inevitable anymore. We were going to take the plunge and...
Have you figured it out yet?
Get rid of our U-Verse digital TV!
I know we're big babies. We actually have a lot of friends, mostly teacher friends, who've eliminated television from their households and are normal, functional humans (probably more normal and more functional than we are). I actually think this is going to be good for our family and Connor, but it will be an adjustment. I am sad to admit, but I am a television person. I love, love, love that escape. So, I'm going to have to become a "television series on DVD" person if I want to continue with any of my favorites (like Grey's, Private Practice, Real Housewives, Desperate Housewives, Sister Wives, Whale Wars, Little People, Little Couple, American Choppers, Top Gear, American Idol, and probably a million more). I'm still sad
and horribly embarrassed to admit that I won't get to see the Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion Part 2. But I'll survive.
