When we decide to give up something for Lent, we never want to start early. Lately, I’ve been spending more time than I should in front of the TV. When Olivia was born, we had to be awake a fair amount of the time. She would only sleep when being held–otherwise, she would be screaming her little heart out. No, we tried everything. Everything. Yes, that too.
I digress. Since we had all of this time awake, since ya know, too many newborns die when their parent falls asleep while holding them and they fall into a position where they can’t breathe, I watched about 75% of the entire Stargate SG-1 series in the first couple months of her life on Hulu. Unaware of how most babies actually sleep, I setup a number of my favorite shows to record on the DVR in the days before Catalina’s birth.
While I don’t need to kill the same amount of time, I’ve tried to watch the same amount of television. Bad move. Thus, we’re going to cut out a large amount of our television watching.
I know this should begin today and not March 9th. But, I want to go into overdrive and watch just as much (if not more). Lent can’t come soon enough.
