i did it. and i'm not sorry.

AmazonBasics Ultra-Thin amplified Indoor HDTV Antenna (photo courtesy
i cancelled cable. i am shocked (and relieved) that they only battled half-heartedly to keep me as a customer. i told them it was too expensive and we were going to go the summer without cable and see how it goes.

so that happened.

but that doesn't mean i've chucked the flatscreen TV in a dumpster. i've purchased a powered HD TV antenna so i will be able to pick up any and all HD channels floating about in the airwaves for free.

and of course i'll get to see all my favorite PBS shows in glorious high definition: Selfridge's Wolf Hall, Call the Midwife, and soon, Indian Summers.

it just so happens the boy likes watching PBS kids' shows like Curious George and Martha Speaks. So we are set. That and a stack of books should suffice, when we're not outside throwing the ball, riding bikes or hitting the neighborhood pool.

 feeling pretty good about myself right now.
