We Did It!

We've been talking about it. A lot. Thinking over different scenarios. Making phone calls. The decision was made.......
We canceled the cable & the home phone!

I called the cable company today. We have a combined bill with internet, cable & phone. We now just have the internet. I just can't do without that. How would I blog? How would we watch Hulu.com?
I told the chiropractor who is also a good friend about it today. He only has internet too. I guess his three kids are bugging him for some "real" TV so he is looking into buying an antenna for about $100 to get the local stations. We will be saving $80 a month by canceling the cable & internet so this might be an option for us too. We'll have to see how it goes. I know I can do without TV, I'm just not sure Steve can :-).
I'm going to find out more about the antenna & I'll let you know. Supposedly, each local station (ABC, NBC, CBS, etc.) have about 3-4 stations. Plus public television comes in with the antenna. So excited to be free of the cable!

Ooo! I'm not that brave! I could live without cable but I would have to live with my children- they would have issues with that. I could do without the land line phone as well, but not my internet.

Wooohooo! Good job!!!


We're keeping ours till the end of the week and that will be it. We'll be billed for a full month anyway, so we figured we'll keep it till then. I'm strangly excited about taking that cable box and modem to the office and saying "here-keep it".
