Going Without

Hi hi hi!
Yes its really me, I'm here :)
Anyone still coming across this page I hope you are well and have been enjoying these summer months! As for me....after living under a rock, I'm back :)
Pinterest
I finally "got into Pinterest." Figuring out how to install the 'pin it' thing to my toolbar took me a good minute, I seriously thought I would never figure it out and when I finally did I was like huh, simple! I see how its so addicting though, its too easy to gather up a million ideas for just one project. I never do anything crafty/DIY but thanks to Pinterest I plan to start soon.

Freeloading
Living here, we didn't bother setting up a cable/Internet account, (that explains the blogging break, yes!?) we were busy enough without all that so it was just as well.... But yes, I am one of those people. No judging, borrowing Internet is no indication of my personal integrity. ;) We were lucky enough to enjoy a near neighbors free Internet for awhile and man it was good while it lasted. I was able to keep up with Gossip Girl, Modern Family, and then BAM, NO INTERNET ACCESS. No cable now no Internet? Movies it is then. Needless to say 2011 officially became "Year Of The Movies!" I would pay to get my hands on our Redbox rental history, even though I might faint after seeing the bill because it has to be a ton. Movie recommendations needed, please come to me, we have seen it all, good, bad, really bad and really good! Anyways, the other night I tried my luck and BAM, INTERNET ACCESS. I was in shock for a minute, I thought it was unreal and too good to be true. We didn't know where to start! We had missed so much so we had too many options, but we quickly caught up on Pretty Little Liars. Sooo I am enjoying it while it lasts and who knows how long that will be. I would love to pay for Internet but unfortunately schoolbooks take up most of that budget!
I Miss Blogging
Not blogging made me miss it even more, of course. I thought of my blog as an old ignored attic that needed to be cleaned out, organized, and made over a little bit! Haha. And I don't want to really "get into blogging" again because then I'll be just as sad when the Internet cuts out again! Oh well I'm happy with what I have for now! (but I miss you guys!)


TV

Yes I know the Gossip Girl finale is like 'sooo 3 months ago', but I'm all caught up now and I just wanted to say, wow that was a good episode! Anddddd I finally get why everyone has been listening to Adele!

More TV
Way back when, when we first started just thinking about moving out, and thinking about things (ie:bills) that would be important, cable was at the very top of my list. I'm not a total lazy couch slob but I admit I love me some TV. I just knew I would die (extreme I know but really how I felt) without cable. Turns out I didn't :) (though, I cant say what would happen if we didn't at least have Redbox rentals.) If we have kids I hope I don't ever hear them complain about TV because the first thing I am going to say is "your Dad and I went a year without cable and we were perfectly
fine!"

No Complaints
Funny how going without taught me to be more appreciative that's for sure! I laugh when my Mom says she barely watches her (huge) flat screen TV with 100+ channels in HD with DVR. She has the luxury of any show at her fingertips but ignores it. I thought I would give anything for TV, but turns out I'm ok without it. (not really, I am sooo sad I missed a WHOLE season of Toddlers & Tiaras ;) And I'm not sure how much longer we could have gone/lasted without it! (plus, I know 1$ rentals add up!) We're moving again, so, soon we will be thrilled to be proud owners of *cable* at the end of this month! Definitely appreciatin that being set up! We will surely be glued to the TV ;) and just in time for fall shows to return! Parenthood anyone? Like I said, I don't ever want to hear my future kids have any complaints about TV! I cant wait to say 'Kids, your father and I weren't always lucky enough to have cable...' OH! And, who knew I could add something to my 'Bucket List' just to be able to cross it off!

Bucket List:
- 1 year without cable
