I'm a bit embarrassed to admit this, but one thing I've been dreading about our move is that we will lose our satellite TV and our DVR; the device on our TV that allows us to easily record and pause live TV. Since our home still hasn't sold and we'll be paying a mortgage plus apartment rent, we're scaling back wherever possible. DVR is a small pleasure, and one I can certainly do without, but I was a bit troubled that I would probably miss the TV show I watch faithfully, "LOST." With three kids it's impossible to watch anything on TV without interruption, so I always just record it and watch it when they are snoozing. We don't even own a VCR, so going back to old school recording wasn't an option.
I had pretty much resigned myself to the fact that I would just have to wean myself off the TV show, but then I discovered today I can watch full episodes online! Bless you abc.com.
The future looks good though, because I have a suspicion that when football season rolls around my husband will find it in the budget to once again pay for satellite and DVR...
(This wins as my most shallow posting thus far.)
You can borrow our annually purchased copy of the entire season of Lost next summer and catch up!! I'll let you and your brother and sister in law fight over it.
I would be bummed too! I don't think you're shallow at all...kind of like that hiding-the-chocolate thing! Your house will sell soon and then you can once again afford the luxury of recorded TV! It's funny how something that I want for a while (most recently a stud finder to hang pictures) doesn't get purchased until my husband needs/wants it (he needed it to hang stuff in the garage)... I sure do love my husband!
Reason number 1 to be thankful for football season!
