I'm glad you made it through no t.v. week just fine! :)

We don't get any channels on our t.v....we do have DVD's that we watch, mostly on weekends only but sometimes during the week if I really feel like sitting down & watching in the evening while I knit!

We've had years with no t.v. at all & I don't miss it a bit! There's too much else to do! :)

Hope you & yours are littlest has a tummy ache & it looks rainy so I'll be playing nurse & drinking tea & knitting!

God bless!
