Today I called the cable company and cut my cable service to basic. I had thought to cut it out altogether, but I kinda think I'd like to watch the news once in a while. So as of Wednesday, February 9th, I will officially be without expanded cable. This will be good since there are only 4 or 5 shows that I HAVE to watch and they're on the basic channels. I kept my internet up to full speed, but also cut down my land line phone service. I didn't want to give away the number completely just yet.
This is a decision I've been toying with for some time. It started out as a way to save money, but the more I thought about it and kept track of how much time I waste in front of the "idiot box" as my grandmother used to call it, I started to realize how much of a positive change this could be. Stay tuned in the coming weeks to find out how it's going!
