Katie and I painted all weekend, and we got about half of our Great Room (aka the living room) painted a lovely orange color. We also pulled off all the goofy 80s wood off of the other Great Room big wall, and I patched a hole in the dry wall and spackled the larger nail holes.
It was a lot of work, and we have much more to do, but it was also a lot of fun. It was fun because Katie and I were doing it together, in our future home together, where our future children will be born and crawl around and play and discover God’s world.
I came close to cursing one time as I fought against a malevolent cable outlet that refused to be re-screwed in–we are not going to have cable TV or any programming in our house, so I think this was the cable industry’s way of getting back at me. Through it all, our Lord was there with us, working, laughing, guiding, smiling.
He led us to this house and has inspired Katie with so many great ideas to make our house a home. Truly Jesus has come to give us life and live it abundantly in Him.

  2. Hi Maria,
    I own a TV that we will put in our study for when we want to watch a DVD together, but that will be the extent of our TV usage.
    I grew up watching lots of TV and am pretty sure that I have already fulfilled my lifetime TV quota!

  3. Way to go! We decided before marriage we wouldn’t have a TV. Obviously we spend too much time on the internet already, and can watch DVDs on the computer if we want. But I do think losing the TV makes for a much healthier family life.
