I've had enough!

of the TV that is. it seems like it is ALWAYS on in my house. from 6:30am-6pm it's Lexi's shows, then from 6-bedtime it's whatever Eugene or I feel like watching. The sad thing is there's really nothing on! Most of the time it is on for Lexi it is just background noise, but I have to admit, she gets more TV than she should. (mostly because I spent too much time on the computer.)

So during the day we watch Curious George, Sid the Science Kid, Word World, and Veggie Tales. The evening is silly shows like wipeout and Family Feud (of course filled with commercials for a cell phones or a diet pill but that's a blog for another time).

My whole point is something has got to change. I already know it HAS to start with me. Because until I get off my lazy butt and spend more time with Lexi working on things, she's going to want the tv on. I've even toyed with the thought of shutting off internet completely until I have myself under control, but I don't think I could do that. I need a lock on my internet so I can only get on at certain times, like nap time and after the kids are in bed. I use the computer as my social life. Talking to my good friend on AIM, or catching up with people on facebook, even reading blogs. It's sad that our generation has forgotten about things like letters, phones, and even real live visits. (most of my friends and family lives too far away to visit though, which is why the internet is so good [and bad] for me.)

So there you have it. My current thoughts. Which are actually my thoughts quite often. So why haven't I changed yet?!
