One week down

Last Thursday, I pulled the trigger..bit the bullet! …cocked the gun? no..that doesn’t work…

I officially canceled my Directv. Like, officially officially. No temporary turn off for 6 months to see how I do, no cancel it and 1 hour later call back to pleeeeeease keep it on!!! Its off. And its off for good.

I’m waiting for the box to arrive for me to mail my receiver back. They don’t know I still have the other box they sent from my original failed attempt to cancel, so I’m patiently waiting for it to come. The guy was good though. He made every effort. Sighting how I’ve been such a loyal customer for so many years, how I’m eligible for a free updated HD DVR since I’ve had mine for so long, how he could save me $30+ on a different plan.

All I had to do was say, okay. But I’m done! I’ve griped and complained long enough about what’s showing on tv these days. The commercials alone are enough to make me feel unclean, and I’m happy I finally did it.

I’m not going all nun on you, I still have Netflix, Hulu Plus and Amazon Prime, so it’s pretty much like I still have tv, only I won’t be inundated with the trash that’s all over the channels. I should also state that dumping nearly $100 a month on a service I barely use was getting to be a bit much for me. I could use a good cut back.

Not to mention my need to fund the haircut and color coming up in November. Gotta pay for it somehow. ;)

It’s nice. The quiet is nice. My mind looks forward to the cleansing again. It began getting used to the reality shows and sitcoms again, deeming them funny and okay to watch. I think I can go the rest of my life with never watching another reality show ever again.

And though this wasn’t my big ol’ happy announcement I mentioned Monday (which if you follow me on Instagram {emily_grapes} or twitter you’ll see it there today) it’s what’s going on in these parts.

I have parties throughout this entire weekend, plus I get to spend time with a friend who sees me as her fashion consultant…which scares me a bit. I go to you all for fashion advice and sometimes get it wrong, so for me to be the one that says yes and no for her is a bit intimidating.

I’ll leave you with 2 pins where I came to mind when my friend’s saw them.
LeAnna thought this was fitting for this post I wrote. Which I wholeheartedly agree. Love it!!

And Michee thought this was perfect for this post I wrote.

I agree that tv, even the commercials can be repulsive. Oh yea and last night I thought of the saying, "As quiet as a mouse." The animal analogies are never ending :0)

and for those of us not on twitter or instagram (seriously, i still have a flip phone that was in my pocket last sunday and ended up in the washing machine! luckily it's a front loader so it was not exposed to much water and came out working just fine. i was worried that i would have to upgrade to something else). i can't even comment on the rest of your post because i am so forlorn over not knowing what's going on.
