The Aloha Road Trip T-Minus 15 Days – Life without television

We’re moving to Hawaii.  Why?  There’s no clear reason except you can’t sit on the sidelines your whole life.

Yesterday’s quote (thank you, Daryl) “You can’t steal second base with one foot on first.”

Life without television

We’ve been without a television since the weekend.  Withdrawal pains are not as bad as I had imagined, especially with four adults cooped up in one room, as we tend to congregate in the living room.  I am starting to worry about everyone’s  addiction to Epic Fail.  I’m overhearing some mighty weird stories.
Of course, I’m above shlock. (the severity of my “America’s Got Talent” loss is staggering).

I miss the drone of the background noise, unusual because the T.V. is almost always off when I’m alone.  But the minute “L” is awake?  Bink! On it goes.  Local news, the Today show, the Nightly News, AC360, CNN, and all things Historical, Biographical or movies we’ve seen before.The man loves him some T.V.

With two laptops and four iPads between us, we’re as informed as we want to be.  I really don’t care to hear the latest Michael Jackson drama (let him R.I.P. for God’s sake).  I’ll look it up on Yahoo news if I need to know more.  For the last year or so, I’ve said, if it doesn’t make it to Yahoo’s front page, it’s not really news.

Will we buy another T.V. once we get settled in Hawaii?  Maybe.  The consensus is no, we’ll be at the beach every spare minute, but reality and holding down multiple jobs might squash that opinion.  If we don’t buy another, there’s always Netflix and my personal favorite, Hulu.

In moving news, pending deliveries include: the sewing machine and a bookcase.  Stainless steel pots and pans went yesterday as well as two milking stools we’ve been using as end tables for the last millennium or so.

Existing furniture: One small dresser, one blue chair, one gravity chair (sold), two barstools (sold).  The air mattresses are one step above sleeping on the floor and two steps below an army cot.  Fifteen days (or less) until we sleep on a real (motel) bed.

We’ve released the mortgage information to the title company so they can pay it off.  Just waiting for a firm closing date (hint – we’d like it to be on the 7th).

It’s too late now to watch last night’s AGT, don’t spoil it for me by letting it be known who’s going to the next round.
