Today I am thankful that we canceled our cable.
I honestly can't remember when we canceled our cable. I think it was back in May?? It was a $50 bill that we just didn't need to pay anymore. Neither one of us were watching anything on TV between not being home and just plain not having the time to watch anything. Annika only likes to watch certain shows (Curious George, Angelina Ballerina and Wonder Pets) and we couldn't even find TV channels with the shows she watches. Instead I looked into streaming Netflix on our Blu Ray player and realized that we could just do that instead of wasting money on cable TV that sometimes we wouldn't want for 2 or 3 weeks at a time.
Plus it's nicer on the weekends to spend time together talking or playing instead of around the TV. People spent way too much time hooked on TV shows. So while most of my friends on Facebook have status updates about the latest episodes of their favorite TV shows I honestly don't even know what any of them are about. And you know what? I don't even care :-)
