My family and I recently moved to a new place at the beginning of the month. We got TV and internet connection this past Saturday. We went three weeks with no TV. For my husband and I it was a lot to digest. But, we got used to it.
I've said before in this blog that I am a reality tv fan. I love watching The Real Housewives shows, Teen Mom, Cupcake Wars, Top Chef, and a few other shows. Mainly Bravo shows. I thought that I would be completely bored without tv to watch during my downtime when the children were sleep.
Interestingly enough, I rarely missed tv. It almost feels weird to watch the shows that I once could not miss. I feel out of the loop. I guess it's a good thing. I still enjoy watching TV, but I realize that it's not the absolute best way for me to unwind and relax.
I've always been a bookworm, since elementary school, and I had the chance to rekindle my love for reading. I've been reading more books as well as spending more time organizing our home in my down time.
Although it's been awhile since I bought a book, because I usually check them out from the library, I was so sad when I found out my local Borders was closing. Like, actually sad. I really enjoy browsing through bookstores. But, I guess a lot of people are choosing to check books out versus purchase them, or buy them off of Amazon.
