The last time I watched daytime TV was when I was pregnant and on bed rest, years and years ago. I watched some of the same soap operas my girlfriends and I used to watch in high school. Funny thing, it turns out that the same characters were hashing out the same conflicts, 12 or so years later. (And I think Victor from The Young and The Restless is still around, 40 years later, if the supermarket tabloids are correct. Anyone know?)
Anyhow, the TV hasn't been on during the day since those days of bed rest. Too much to do, nothing of interest on, and besides all that, I'd feel guilty sitting in front of it in the middle of the day. So I actually had to call my husband at work the other day to ask him how to turn it on. (He manages the remote at night; you know, it's a man thing.)
Why now, you ask?
I am trying to finish up some knitting projects for Christmas, last minute. Stuff I've had all year to do. And I thought I could use some company.
And that's when I discovered the Hallmark Channel.
Sappy, sentimental, predictable movies . . . so much alike that they're starting to run together in my mind. But, G-rated, feel-good, and always with a happy ending. I couldn't take a steady diet of this, but my . . . such a nice break from the horrific news that we watch every night.
There's lots of Christmas decor, mistletoe, falling in love, Christmas carols . . . all the good stuff.
|Although this pic is from last year, my Christmas decorating is done. Love all the sparkly pretties at night by the firelight.|
I figure I have to watch about six more movies to finish the knitting. I can do that. I like having the excuse.
How about you? Do you watch daytime TV? Any suggestions?
