Something happened to our cable box about two weeks ago, and we've had no TV since then. We found a place where we can watch "24" episodes online, and since that was the only thing I ever wanted to watch anyway, I am loving not having the TV. Emma used to be allowed to watch two shows a day, and I thought I needed that time to get things done, but now that we don't have the option, I find I don't really need it at all. The only issue I have is taking a shower, because I felt safe enough taking a shower while she was engrossed in Caillou, but don't feel like I can take a shower while she's just roaming around the house on her own. I've been taking showers at night now, so problem solved. Ideally, I'd like to get rid of the TV forever, but we'll have to get it fixed when baseball season starts. When that happens, I am going to make and stick to a "no TV except for Royals games" rule.

Yesterday I sewed these cute little shoes for the baby. They were really fast and easy, so I think I might try to sew a couple more pairs for him today.

Could you possibly just go without cable (like are the Royals games on local TV)? That way you won't have to pay a cable bill but can still see the Royals games. My family has never had cable, so I can't imagine paying for cable in my adult life. Hopefully David will agree with me!

Nope, unfortunately, the Royals games aren't on local TV.

The only thing I would really miss about not having cable is the Food Network. I don't think I could live without Iron Chef and Paula Deen!
