New Year's Resolution

My New Year’s Resolution this year is to be more creative. I have taken a giant step of faith in my ability to do so by cancelling my cable. Yep, that’s right. I no longer have cable/TV access.

I realized that I was spending more time watching TV when I could have been designing and being creative. I have so many unfinished projects and so many projects waiting to be done that I decided that this was the year that I would complete the projects and sign up for more swap-bot swaps.

I did renew my Netflix subscription so I can still watch movies when I want. In so doing, I am still saving about $120 a month by cancelling my cable subscription. When did watching TV get so expensive?

I will miss some of my favorite shows though. Top Chef, the new season (or not) of Project Runway, HGTV and Food Network. Oh well, maybe I will be able to follow them on the computer.

In the meantime, I will continue to teach myself Japanese with Rosetta Stone when I start jonesing for the television.

I think that I am already going through withdrawals and it is only the first half-day. Hopefully, I will get used to it. I will miss the Fox Soccer Network though. Maybe I can stay late at work and watch TV there! Just sayin . . .

Congratulations, and good luck with your resolution. Every year, I have the same resolution -- no buying new plants until I get the ones I already have into the ground.

wow! I'm sure turning off your cable will certainly help with your creativity! I don't think I could do it. Kudos to you! Good luck with it!

Thank you, btw, for thinking of me and my family when sending the Christmas card! That was very thoughtful of you!

Hope you have a wonderful new year and here's to a great year of crafting and creativity!
