Last night I was thinking about how much TV I watch. On Tuesday and Wednesday night the entire family watched American Idol. On Tuesday I followed it up by watching the movie Hitch. And last night I was Idol, CSI:NY, and then the news. That is a total of 6.5 hours of TV.
When I think about it, 6.5 hours is a lot of time lost. I could have read multiple books, gone for at least 5 runs, played more with my kids, or slept. Watching TV is just so dang easy, and the time just floats away from you. I'm amazed that I can be dead tired and unable to do anything, but some 'show' will keep me up for hours. It is like my brain goes into zombie mode.
I know I've blogged this before, and I will again later, I'm sure. Just saying.
