So here we are drinking wine and writing our update on the NOTV progress for our families. All five children are sleeping and just saying that out loud makes me fear that we will somehow wake one of them up and ruin the happiness that we are enjoying right now. We are amidst our second bottle of wine and Miranda just pulled out a cute little bottle of Finnish Vodka. We did sister shots and now we are here to update the world about our lives without television.
First of all, the Daniels are cheating. They have been doing so for awhile now, weeks really. Somedays they actually survive without television, but usually they are tuned into something useless like Grey's Anatomy or How I Met Your Mother. Miranda just said that, "she enjoys radio better than television". I agree you can rock it pretty hard core while listening to your favorite tunes and still accomplish something pretty fantastic. But if you turn the TV on, you waste time because it sucks you in and you do nothing else. You just watch TV. The television mesmerizes, practically hypnotizes you, and you can not accomplish anything once you turn it on; the radio actually motivates you if the right music is on.
At our house the World Series has been on, other than that business as usual no television much to Kara's dismay. Anyhow, we did let the kids watch "The Land Before Time VIII" tonight and eat like two tons of popcorn so I guess we have not been entirely TV free, but for the most part we are living the NOTV dream now that Hazel has stopped puking.
