Tick, tick, tick…my fella and I are taking a bold step for us…one we have talked to death over the years. Can you guess? We have been inspired to take a HUGE step for us and give up our television. What does this mean exactly? For us the tv becomes our evening ritual the minute the kids are in bed around 8pm we hit the living room sofa and chair and enter the zone…mind you we do not allow our three children to watch tv other than the occasional (0-1x per week) video in our home. They do see tv at friend’s houses and at Mom’s gym and no, we are not upset by this. My fella recently read “No Impact Man” and shared bits and pieces with me. It was an inspiring treatise in what changes can one family make to positively decrease their negative impact on the environment. Giving up television was only part of the BIG picture.  More to come in that department.

The big day will be on the 10th of June. We will still rent movies but access to all of those cable channels will be gone, gone, gone. We are now gorging on multiple episodes of Bones and I had a mini-fix of Entertainment Tonight. I am feeling a bit of PANIC. We are hoping to decrease the non-qualitative time suck tv has become in our life, save $, model a different life for our kids, decrease our electric usage.

Tick, tick, tick…
