GOD's my island hideaway, keeps danger far from the shore,
throws garlands of hosannas around my neck.

tv diet?

last night, my poor hubby turned on the tv to watch the news and found that all we have now is static.


that's right.

the local translator station has switched to digital now too.

so i dug out our coupon cards that we got for the converter boxes {since we definitely do not have digital tvs} and ordered two from amazon.com. it'll probably be about a week before they get here. in the meantime, the kids will probably be more bummed by it than either T or i since they each have their favorite PBS shows they won't be able to watch at all this week.

i'd say we're on a tv diet due to the change-over, but i know we'll still watch some dvd or videos so, in reality, it probably won't be all that much less viewing time at all.

  1. We just got a converter box {as a birthday gift for Kirb from one of his friends who just got digital cable and didn't need it}, but we hadn't had tv since June or whenever the world went digital on us. We really didn't miss it at all {except I did miss the local news} and I can't say we've watched more than a few hours in the past month or so since we're gotten it. We do watch DVD's most days, but we were surprised how little we missed having a TV.


Comments make me happy!
