Will we survive? Only time will tell...

We did it. We finally did it.

We cut our cable. It's gone. This will be an interesting experiment...

We told Alexandria we were going to be getting rid of cable and she came up with some pretty good arguments in its favour.
Alex: What about the weather?
Mommy: What do you mean?
A: You like to check the weather on the tv.
M: Yes, we do.
A: You won't be able to do that anymore. (crosses arms, pauses) Don't you want to keep cable now?
M: Nice try, Sweetie. We can check on the computer or go outside to find out the weather, though.

After that argument was shot down you could see the wheels turning. :)

Over the past few weeks, we've been taping kids' shows like crazy. We have every possible Dinosaur Train that has aired so far. Yup. We got them all. The first 20 episodes are now on tape. Along with a bunch of Dino Dan and not enough Peep and the Big Wide World. VERY cute show!

I'm sure we'll manage. We still get TVO, CBC, (sort of) CTV and a couple others. (Can I trade C-SPAN for Treehouse or A&E or something?!) We still have the internet and many networks have their shows available online after they air. We also have a gazillion DVDs and, of course, all the taped shows. There's also the library for movies and kids' DVDs. Oh right, and books.

I have never not had cable. Ever. This will be interesting....
