Goodbye, cable (for real this time).

Well, it happened. The cable we had been getting free for over a year finally went away. No, Comcast still never came and unhooked it. But, they changed all their channels to digital, so you can't get them unless you have the box.

The pain has been lessened by the fact that we now have Netflix streaming on our Wii. It's incredible. Darby and I have watched all of the seasons of 30 Rock, Seasons 1-4 of Psych, and are now starting Season 1 of Friday Night Lights. We do work on homework while we watch, so it's ok, right?

The loss of TLC and HGTV were a pretty big blow for me, but I've consoled myself by watching previous seasons of 17/18 Kids and Counting, Jon & Kate Plus 8, and Say Yes to the Dress. Pretty high-brow, I know. I console myself with the fact that I have stayed strong this year and avoided any episodes of The Bachelor. Baby steps. ;)

Dad and I are enjoying the Net-Flix 30-Rock episodes. Since we just watch 1 or 2 at dinner, we don't make it through at your rate!! I'm still proud of you for being honest about your cable...guess you were rewarded by getting to keep it so long!

Friday Night Lights is one of my favorite shows on TV. We watched the first three seasons on Netflix during my first trimester when I didn't have energy to do anything but watch TV. I hope you enjoy it.

Thank you, Comcast, for proving that the wait-and-it-will-go-away approach has real world application.
