For the longest time, it was part of my wife and I’s daily routine to watch the evening news together. That tradition came to an abrupt halt, when son #1 stopped taking a nap at noon and started going to bed earlier. So now, we bring the two rascals to bed at around that time, and my TV consumption dropped to approximately 1h a month, if that. I can’t say I miss it! I have to get my news elsewhere, but nowadays, when you can read any online newspaper on your smartphone, I don’t feel like I’m missing out.

A few years back, when somebody told me they don’t even own a TV, I was wondering how that is even possible. Now I find myself looking for internet deals where I don’t have to pay for cable, since I don’t use it anyway. Alas, there are no options where passing on cable makes a real difference.
