I think I have a problem...turning off the TV
Here's the thing...I love to read books. There is nothing better than a great book. One that can make you think about life or bring you to tears or make you smile and laugh. I love a good book!!
But...even when I have a good book to read and am really enjoying it, I will turn on the TV. I will waste so much time just watching needless stuff. It's really bad...it's crazy.
It all started this morning, I was walking around the library gathering books that I wanted and thinking "I shouldn't take too many because I will never read them all in the amount of time the library lets me keep them". Then I thought, "well that's only because you watch TV too much". Oh...sometimes those little men (lil' good guy-lil' bad guy) on your shoulder really point out important things.
So I can to the only rational decision...
I am turning off the "tube".
For one week, I am going to turn it off and read. All week. Just read. I want to see how quickly I can get through a stack of books. The TV is an amazingly addictive, evil, little thing. I have known this forever but it's hitting me how much time I just waste. I limit it for my kiddos...why not myself. I am the one with the problem, not them.
Now there are my favorite shows that I really enjoy but with the internet and now our Hulu, I can catch up on just about anything and do it at my leisure.
This will be good. I need this. I will survive.
So here is my goodie bag of books!!!
They all look good right? It's crazy because I really want to read all of them but I am already missing the stupid TV.
Ugh...I sooooo need to do this...but why is it so hard? I guess it's hard to do the best thing sometimes.
So next Monday I will fill you in on how I survived Reading week.
I also need to stop blabbing on this post and stop surfing the internet. Another one of my big time wasters!
Oh wait...Just remembered...can I watch KU get their butts kicked tonight by Kentucky? That doesn't count right?!
Oh man...well, Good Luck Kentucky! You aren't my wildcats but mine aren't the ones playing KU!
