Addiction, addiction!

Addiction!
Sung to the melody of the song, "Tradition" from Fiddler on the Roof.
I am Tobi the Blogger and I am here to confess that I am an addict.
Yes, sad but true.

Houzz, Home and Garden, Pinterest or some other decorating site must have spilled the beans on me that I have stated that I cannot get enough of those types of sites, plus the fact we had access while on our last few fall mini vacations at the hotels due to all of those cable channels, oh dear...!

I just spent an entire Sunday watching one after another of HGTV, specifically, "House Hunters", renovations, 14 episodes and they are not alone in my viewing pleasure, Love it or List, Property Brothers, Fixer Upper, Flip or Flop have all been watched during these last five days of one after another I am sure they're more, tell me that they're more, please?...And yes, I am bleary eyed, strained, pained in my eyes.
They say confession is good for the soul, and so I have another one to mention since many who know me must be wondering how a gal without cable, or satellite or any of those super channel installs could be watching any preferred channels that most of the rest of the world watches daily without stealing them, hmm?

I/we never would ever do that, by the way...well, I am here to say that with our fancy new LED SMART WIFI TV it just so happens to come with a free month of streaming NETFLIX, so there I said it, and now all of you know, and I am so ashamed, not really. I am grateful for this wonderful opportunity; too beauty queen-ish, oh well?
But we have till next month to decide after twenty-one years of no fanciful channel surfing to succumb to the charms of this more desirable form of entertainment by the multitudes on our own terms and choice of pricing.

In case some are wondering why we ever stopped having/paying for/attaining cable like, "normal people" do, so it was like this, way back then when we moved from the east coast of Florida to the west coast of Florida the cable business went berserk with pricing, circa January of 1995, and it was no longer a customer's choice for channels, they wanted you had to take their packages that would somehow omit the channels we so desired, and if we wanted them they would be "extra" in cost; channels that we had had for years and years, even in New Jersey, so now do you understand?
It was them, not us, truly.

Any-who, that is the germ of how my selective TV watching came to pass.
There is an upside to this addiction of mine, oh I forgot that I have also watched, Bones; they're older episodes, anyway the streaming WIFI device is only abled through the living room TV, so when I go into our bedroom that TV is just normal and so my addiction has to be curbed for sleep purposes, right.
That is unless I have another sleepless night like I have been known to have, and then I would be able to go into our living room and enjoy a few rounds of my favorite guilty pleasures more, more and more!
STOP THE MADNESS!

Although, since it has been too hot, hot, hot to even go out with my new ride this is fine entertainment that is just right for my odd sensitivities.

Love to all, be well, blessings.

And next time please be here or be square, ya hear!
