No TV for a Month – Update Day 5

It is the early morning of Day 5, and I’m doing well in the challenge. I’m still not quite sure what to do with the Olympics, so we’ll see what happens.

Honestly, the challenge so far has been a good thing. I feel like I have had more conversation with my wife. I’ve had time to read. I even went out to dinner with Leanne last night.

I will confess that I have been able to keep up some with by sports through brief checks on the Internet. I don’t think that’s cheating, but you’re welcome to chime in otherwise.

That’s the update for now. I’ve gotta run.

Until the next post…

No TV for a Month – Challenge

I’m hesitant to post this, because I’m not sure I’ll make it. But maybe you’ll share along in the journey or at least provide some encouragement along the way. Okay, I’m addicted to TV. I use the television as my relaxer. I watch sports (a lot), movies, reality TV, news, sitcoms, etc. I find that it can be my escape from reality – even for a few minutes. However, sometimes, I probably overdue it. There’s got to be many better things that I could be doing besides watching whatever.

So here’s the challenge, I’m going to attempt to go without watching the television for the whole month of August. This might not be a bad choice for months. After all, it’s the end of the summer reruns. The weather outside is certainly better than it is in the winter, and there are plenty of home improvement projects that could use my attention. More than this, I have a great family who loves to have my undivided attention. Sure the month of August is one of the longest (31 days), but I’m hoping that I can make it.

I’m sure I’ll blog about my adventures along the way. What do you think? Are you up for the “No TV for a Month Challenge?” Let me know!

Until the next post (or until the end of July – which ever comes first), I might watch a little TV…

Closet American Idol Fan

Okay, so the title of this post no longer fits. I have to admit that I enjoy Fox‘s American Idol. I’m not sure if this season’s contestants as a whole are the best they’ve had, but I’m still enjoying it. If I were voting today, I would vote for the candidate in the video below who sang John Lennon‘s Imagine last week.

Until the next post, imagine…
