Billy Budd the Betta's BacksideOur newest family member, Billy Budd the Betta

I have to say that I somehow expected things to be radically different sans TV, but really its much more the same than it has been different. I’m still tired when I get home from a stressful day at work (of which there have seemingly been many of late) and more often than not, I’ll still sit down on the couch and knit, just like I would when we watched tv. Though I have been doing more spinning of late.

We have been eating at the kitchen table more and the dishes get done right after dinner more often. I will say that.
