TV...Glee... and Decisions
Well, we decided... we can read the news, and we can always go out to watch Dallas games... no big deal. I have been feeling this way for quite awhile. I realized a year back that we were spending about 90% of our "free" time in front of the tube. We tried to just turn it off, but we would ALWAYS turn it back on. We tried to have self control but it didn't work. Therefore, it is gone. We are actually excited about it.
We will not be getting rid of our TVs however. We will be purchasing apple TV so that we can rent movies.. and actually "sit down" and watch a move together (if we turn it on). There will no longer be any "surfing" or mindlessly watching shows.
Now, I cannot take credit for this decision completely. One of my friends from church recently posted a blog where she was doing the same thing. I was surprised. It to some extent challenged my thoughts. I realized.. if I am saying "I can't do it... because I can't live without blah blah blah" then I am putting something that is "entertainment" above everything else. To some extent, it is a stronghold. Just like my friend, I wondered what my husband would say. He loves his sports and news soooo much. This is part of the reason I never brought it up before. When I brought the idea to him, he was so positive about it and started researching apple TV so we could still have access to movies for "home date nights".
Now, we will be waiting until February to flip the switch because my family is coming in January. Since my parents will be staying with me the entire month (and we will be working)... we decided to keep it, to give them something to do.
THEN.... I saw the latest GQ cover for Glee... and it SICKENED me. Here is the link to the slideshow (please make sure no kids are around if you choose to see them). It just is disrespectful, totally ungodly, and disgusting. I was extremely disappointed and I will no longer support this show. If you are a fan of this show, and a Christian, you may want to look at this slideshow and decide whether you want to further support this.
:) Please comments and become a "follower" of the blog! I would love to see who is reading.
