Love Hate Relationship

Entertainment is a love hate relationship for me. I LOVE tv... a lot. I especially love Bachelor, Survivor, Biggest Loser, and so much more. We watch quite a bit of tv and an occasional redbox movie. I have never thought twice about what I was watching. I didn't appreciate trashy scenes or scandelous jokes and apparel but for the most part I didn't think it really mattered. I know, awful but true. Now that I am aware of this addiction I am SHOCKED and DIGUSTED with what is put into the media we watch. I get so annoyed that every film we watch is corrupted with sex and nudity. ERG!! So frustrating. I feel like we can't watch anything without holding the remote to fast forward through scenes. We have eliminated many tv shows to my sadness but it is worth it. I have been so annoyed lately though because we have watched 2 movies this month and they are such trash! It really irritates me. I feel like I should really get rid of my DVR but sadly I don't want to live without it. You probably all think I am crazy and I probably am :) but this really is so frustrating to me. The media we are living with is appalling yet I still have a hard time eliminating it. Give me the courage to rid it from my life. I really need to.


  1. I agree 100%!!!!! It's amazing how differently we look at the world after discovering our husband's addictions.

  2. I agree completely. Just this morning I was thinking about Chuck coming back this season, but then I felt a pit in my stomach when I remembered that every episode features a slow-motion section of Sarah looking all sexy and half dressed. Makes me sick now. I'm not a huge TV watcher, though, so I would be just as happy if we just got rid of our TV. Sure, there are shows I love to watch, but I never miss them when I'm busy.

  3. Amen to you and to the other comments! We recently visited family in Las Vegas and it was torture to see all the billboards, taxis etc. TV is a fun distraction for sure, but I bet you'll find that you won't miss it as much as you think. I rarely watch tv but we watch college football games with my in-laws. After not watching tv for months when I see the commercials during the football game I'm totally disgusted.


  4. Thank you guys, I plan on cancelling dvr tomorrow! I will post when the deed is done! You are all amazing ps!
