Addiction or Fascination?


I am finally able to admit it. I love t.v.! I think that it may be a genetic trait that I inherited from my dad. It is easy to understand why he was fascinated by it and loved it. After all it was invented in his lifetime and as a smaller child, he didn't even have one in his home. Imagine the horror. I know that one of the first things my parents, bought when they were first married was a Zenith console color television. We had it for at least 25 years. Then afterward every time he got a bonus we got a newer and bigger version. Keep in mind that in those days bigger meant 27 inches. Eventually every room in the house had its own t.v. I really do think I come by the love (or some may say addiction) honestly. I love to crawl into my own bed, after the kids are in their rooms, and watch my "stories". I think the greatest invention of the 20th century was the DVR or Tivo. I think that by using my DVR my love is really a fascination because I don't let the t.v. interrupt my life. It can't be an addiction then, right? It could be that I am in denial. Jay hates to watch t.v. with me because I watch the weirdest shows. (His words, of course) I don't mind because he likes to watch everything, all at once. So if you ever need me after 9pm chances are I'm curled up in bed with a good show!

Jim gave me a Tivo for Christmas about 5 years ago. It's been my favorite all time gift. It's the gift that keeps giving!!

I am so happy to know you have a blog! Thanks for the comment...your insight is appreciated. As far as your tv fascination goes, we are right there with you. We once tried to save money by getting rid of DISH and let me tell you it was the most depressing week of our lives. We have decided that whatever financial woes may come, getting rid of TV is NOT the way to go...life just loses its sweetness somehow.

Hey, I was so excited when the kids told me you had a blog! Maybe I can keep in touch with you much better through your blog! How sad for our sweet Maggie, but I guess all must be healing and getting well by now! I laughed at your TV story and thought it sounded so you! Keep blogging and happy day!
