I'm slowly but surely getting used to having no TV in the house. It's been about a week now. I still get all the local news headlines by following those channels through Facebook. And the only thing I ever watched on Roku — with what little time our daughter allowed us to watch anything other than her shows — were the MLS soccer highlights, and that's accessible on the MLS website. It's okay that it's in Spanish half the time. I know what pelota means.
Other than having the bigger screen that it provides, there's really no need for a television. We still plan to turn it back on come September or whenever the "Fall Season" starts. But in the meantime, it's nice to know we can go without it if we really try. It's nice to sort of "detox" from it all. Just don't ask me to turn off the Internet! :)
