The end is coming.
There is no chance, it seems, of a continuation or extension.
It is completely out of my control.
My life will change. Perhaps for the better but it doesn't feel that way.
The digital age is upon us.
I love my tv at work. It's a little black and white unit with a radio and CD player. But I bought it for the little tv. Don't get me wrong- I don't sit at work and watch tv all day. But if I'm going to have background noise, I like tv. I like having the news on in the morning. I like listening to The View. I like silly end of the day talk shows like Dr Phil and even shows where I might learn something like Oprah. Some days my tv never gets turned on and some days it is on most of the day. I like listening and being able to glance over to see what's being talked about. I like being able to connect to news coverage when something happens.
But... in a couple short, too fast weeks... my love affair will come to an abrupt end.
I could save up and buy a TV for well over $100... but then I lose my radio and CD player.
I think I'll wear black on 2/17/09. I know many, including my husband, are excited and eager for this transition. Speaking from a completely selfish place... I'm not. Generally speaking, I don't really care. But this is going to impact me on a more personal level than I'd anticipated.
It's going to suck.
