We have NOT replace the broken TV for more than 2 months now. I feel a sense of accomplishment here.
The Husband has been bugging me to replace the broken TV but with all the recent and future travel plans, a new TV purchase can’t be justified. Also, it makes great sense to wait until the holiday season sale begins, right?
And surprisingly, we are doing great without a TV.
The house is much quieter. We get so much more stuff done on our to-do list, every day. I’m getting around-the-world news on the Internet anyways, so why do we need a TV?
In my opinion, all we need is a hot pot of freshly steeped tea with a few of this plum cakes. Sublime.
The TV can wait.

The only thing I’m enjoying is my viewfinder through the camera — there’s so many possibilities.
Are you a TV junkie? Do you think we are missing out?
