Scott and I are not the typical couple to not have cable. We really like television. A lot. We really look forward to 7:00, when dinner is eaten and the dishwasher is loaded, Ada is bathed and in bed, and we can crash onto the couch for some much needed down time.
However, when we moved into the new house, we decided to try living without cable. Instead we bought an antennae at Wal-Mart (or somewhere) and we get a few major channels through that. Enough to watch The Today Show, some football, and the main weeknight shows. Because Ada is, well, Ada, our downstairs antennae is fairly torn up. I am probably not as diligent as I should be about telling her not touch it because I HATE having it in our living room. It just doesn't go with the rest of the decor if you know what I mean. So maybe I secretly hope she tears it up. And I secretly hope we end up having to get cable. But, for now, we just watch a lot of fuzzy Today Show in the mornings.
The antennae upstairs, however, is in perfect condition, and we get very clear, HD clear, NBC. Tonight was the premier of The Biggest Loser, which we LOVE!!!, so we wanted to watch it on the HD clear channel. Problem is, that television is in our empty office sitting on a lonely little shelf, the single piece of furniture in the room. Scott watches it when he works from home on Tuesdays. Remember the air mattress that Scott thought would be a good solution for our master bedroom? Well, we decided to blow it up, get some pillows, and sit on it to watch The Biggest Loser. So there we sat tonight, in an empty room, on an air mattress, watching a channel brought to us by an ugly, ugly antennae. Oh the price we pay for saving money.
By the way, The Biggest Loser looks promising. I get so excited at the end when they show the transformation. I gasp in excitement every time. Never fails.
