TV Turnoff Week: Day 1, 8:00am, and already an Epic FAIL

I've always believed there is a time and a place for television watching. That said, I kind of look forward to TV Turnoff Week because it forces us to change our regular routine.

But, last night when I was heaving my guts all over the place, I remembered that when Mama is sick and home alone with the kids, the television is just about the only thing that is going to save me on a long Monday.

If I can stand upright for more than two minutes without the room swimming around me or hold anything in my stomach by tomorrow, we'll give it a go then.

But, today? I'll be thankful my kids can nurse off the Boob Tube while I nurse myself back to health.

I'm so sorry you're sick. We've had it here too and it's not pleasant. Hope you feel better soon.

Apparently I am failing too.

I didn't even know it was TV Turnoff week. We're on our second show.

Oops.

Aw, I went to bed last night giggling after you tweeted about your TV Turnoff Week worries.

And now...you're sick.

Feel better soon. Worry not about TV Turnoff Week. I am a child of the 70s who watched TV from morning to night & I am fine. A little odd. But, fine.

Just chiming in to say that I wholeheartedly support your decision to delay the TV turnoff.

Ugh. Throwy-up illness is the worst!

I hope you bounce back--SOON!

No way would I ever consider turning off the tv if I were sick. Heck, I don't even want to turn it off now.

Feel better soon!

Oh no! Not that kind of sick! Feel better. Screw the tv turnoff week. You can do it IF you want to, WHEN you want to.

Dude that sucks. I hope you start feeling better soon.

I am failing on the no TV thing, because I don't intend to even attempt it. I am not that brave.

Oh yuck! I'm sorry your sick! Feel better and yes TV Turnoff Week should be delayed until your better. But then someone else might get it and need to veg in front of the TV!

Awww. Bummer. Hope you feel better and can spray the kids down with Lysol before Sat? Supposed to be nice out.

And think of the TV as a prescription - exactly what the Dr. orders when Mommy is sick!

Seriously? Weaning them off the boob is easier than weaning off the boob tube. Plus it's not at all weird if they're still watching TV at 13--breast feeding, well, that's entirely different.

Feel better!!

Oh, I hope you feel better soon!

And don't worry about the TV turnoff week. Your health is much more important than some silly designated week; TV turnoff week can wait seven days.

Bluuuuurgh. This virus SUCKS! I think I'm turning the corner, so I bet you will soon as well. I feel much better since I ate something and took Tylenol. Yeah, and Coca Cola. And lots of TV. Screw TV turnoff week. We'll try that in July.

Hope you are better soon and the kids dodge this bullet. Ugh.

Oh noes!

You're not pregnant, are you?
