A no spend/no fresh air day

February 29th, 2008 at 12:22 am

Mini Me is home sick so I went no place and spent nothing today. In fact, aside from a mad dash to the mailbox, I can't say that sunlight ever touched me.

I did get a workout on the treadmill this afternoon. As I've said before, I hate running on the treadmill, but there is one good thing about it -- an excuse to watch TV.

We don't have cable and don't really get television reception where we live. But we do have free access to DVDs from the library. I rarely even watch those, though, because I can usually find a bunch of other ways to fill my time. However, I've been curious about the show Lost, so I got the first season from the library and have been watching it whenever I find myself on the treadmill. It's great for making one want to jump out of their skin every now and then.

People tend to find it surprising that we don't have cable and/or watch TV on a regular basis. Initially, when we got rid of it, it was very much a money-saving decision. Now it's more a lifestyle choice.

    The hubby is so addicted to the television... I'm pretty sure he would chop me up and dispose of me systematically in the event I ever mentioned getting rid of cable. Its awful though, because I cringe the moment the 54" monster comes on and fills the house with loud commercials.

    I'm kind of hooked on the Saw movies right now... but I don't have a treadmill. I remember seeing some of the episodes of LOST, and it wasn't too bad!
