When the kids are going crazy or I'm trying to get something done, I put on a netflix show for them. I figured it was better than tv because there are no nasty commercials, and I have exact choice about what they watch. But lately it's been on a lot during the day. So having it gone will definitely get me to interact and "be there" with my kids more. A very good thing.
But I love netflix! When Jeff's working his crazy hours and I dread going to bed by myself again, I watch a movie. And when I need a laugh, I watch an episode of 30 Rock! :) I was surprised at how hard this was to do. Cancelling netflix is easy, but getting myself to do it was a chore! It's been a few days and I just barely canceled it now. Better late than never, I guess. I kept trying to rationalize it-- "maybe I can get a limited plan so we can't go overboard! maybe I can just get enough will power to leave it off!" etc, etc, etc.
But I knew what Heavenly Father told me-- to cancel it completely. So I did. I'm glad that I did, but also a little nervous about the next time the kids are going crazy.
Wish me luck!
