This post is days in the making. Every time I try to sit down and write, something or someone gets in my way. We have been so busy unpacking, decorating for Christmas, and my Dad and brother arrived on Monday to stay the week to help get some things done and celebrate Christmas. To say it's been busy is an understatement.
But, that's not the real reason I haven't been online. No matter how busy I am, I can usually squeeze in moments here and there. The real reason is that apparently the cable company doesn't supply their customers with a wireless router unless they get a special request. So, I have to connect with an ethernet cable which is in the family room in the basement. The ethernet cable is short so I literally am using the subwoofer for the TV as my desk.
Did I also mention that this is where the main TV is? The only other TV we have right now is in my bedroom, which I rarely go into during the day.
So, basically I have hardly been online and hardly watched TV since Thursday and ya know... I have to say that it's been kind of nice. It's nice to listen to music and see Abby run around and play without being distracted by one of her shows. It feels like we've gone back to basics and it's refreshing.
On the other hand, the internet is something I miss. I miss drinking my coffee and checking my email. I miss not being able to move my computer to whatever room I'm in. So, on the list today is a wireless router. It's a necessity.
Another TV, however, is on the bottom of the list. We have a living room upstairs so there is definitely room for it but I'm not too anxious to put one in there. Dan thinks I'm crazy and is planning on getting one after Christmas. My brother agrees with Dan and said that it's not the 1950's anymore. He thinks it's strange to have a living room without a TV.
So, what do you guys think? How many TVs do you have and are they on all day like in my house?
