Right now, cable TV is included with our rent. We are not going to get cable when we move to the new house, and I’m sure it will transform my life. The time I used to spend watching TV will now be devoted to more constructive pursuits, such as poetry writing. And regular times for prayer and reflection. And exercise. Yes, I will be a whole new me. I’ll do all those things plus my online teaching gig, my journal editing gig, and the 5x increase in chores that apparently comes with home ownership. Oh yeah, and traveling, hosting guests, hiking, starting a women’s book club, getting back into pottery making, and finding some artsy friends. (Dr G: “Let the transformation begin!”)
I’m sure all this will work out because of my excellent history of making sweeping, long-lasting personal changes, albeit ones that are invisible to the outside world. Why do you doubt me, fair reader? Pshaw.
