Blog Obituary?

Is this the end of blogging for me?

Lifetime, HGTV, and TLC...OH MY!

We're getting CABLE!!

We did away with cable about 10 years ago. We were scrimping every penny that we could find to put toward our debt. Our goal back then was to pay off enough debt that I could stay home when we had children. We paid off 2 new cars, 2 credit cards, and 4 student loans. It took us 4 years. The $30 we paid for cable back then went toward our "baby goal". We told ourselves that we'd reward ourselves with cable when we met our goal. But by then, cable cost more and we had realized that we got all the local channels just fine off of bunny ears.

Frankly, I've been afraid to get cable again. Don't we spend enough time in front of the TV as it is? Do we really need more of an excuse to not talk to one another and go to bed late? And no...the kids do NOT need any more channels. PBS is fine, thank you very much! Plus, why spend the money if we get local channels without it?

Well, as Dear Hubby said last night when I asked him, "Why now, when we're working so hard to hit some financial goals again?"

"Because I want it. I want it. I want it. I want it. So there!"

Have I mentioned lately just how wise and mature my Dear Hubby is? Actually, if we're being honest, I want it to. I'm just glad that he admitted it first.

Joel would die without DirecTV! He can't live without watching his Cougs! Of course, I am totally mature and full of self-control so I wouldn't care at all to be without it! ;) Right? Okay, I'm lying, I'm totally addicted. Watch out it WILL happen to you!
