Too Much TV

I think I've been watching too much TV. For the past week or so, I've almost felt overwhelmed by the number of shows I think I have to keep up on, and all of the good shows (like The Office, Criminal Minds, etc.) aren't even back from the strike yet!

Confession: Rob and I watch a lot of reality TV. We don't watch the ones that are super-seedy, but we do love Survivor and American Idol and Dancing with the Stars. Do you realize how much these shows are on each week? AI and Dancing are on twice and Survivor is once.. and the worst one we watch: Big Brother is on three times a week.

I've felt extra tired lately and don't think I'm getting enough sleep at night. Maybe that's because I'm watching TV until 10 p.m.

So, I'm making a change. I told Rob tonight that I'm going to just stop watching a few of them (primarily reality TV) and try to get to bed earlier or spend more time reading in the evenings. I think I'll sleep better, and that can't hurt!

(P.S. - We do have Tevo and record stuff so we can skip through the commercials. Although it is lots faster, I don't think it technically means I'm watching less TV!)

Wish me luck!

It is amazing how many reality shows their are on television right now!!! Mr. Brownstone has one on our DVR about...lumberjacks. A reality show about lumberjacks!

Good for you for trying to get to bed earlier. Obviously I cannot say that I do the same! :(

Hope you'll stop by on Tuesday. I have a great new button for your sidebar and "Ten Things" blog entries!

Kudos to you Kathryn! I have the TV on a lot but I can't remember the last time I watched a T.V. show in it's entirety. I've gotten used to that though.

You should watch as much now as you can! We can never get to bed at a decent time. Tivo could be a horrible thing...but we really like it! We have to record everything so we can watch our shows after our boys are in bed. Have a great week!
