Happy Friday friends! I still feel so confused this morning. I cannot get my days straight today! I was sure it was Saturday when I woke up! It’s not that I’m confused because of lack of sleep. I have actually been heading to bed VERY early the last couple of days. I have been going to bed early so that I can enjoy recorded shows because we FINALLY have a PVR.
Ryan and I have wanted a PVR for a long time! But we put off getting one over and over again as our extra budget money went to other things like trips! Finally, on Monday we declared, let’s call and get one, it will be our Christmas gift to each other. The amazing news? We got a SMOKIN’ deal on a PVR from Bell! It was installed on Tuesday and now I have a hard time imagining what watching normal T.V used to be like!
I have to be honest, although the thought of getting a PVR was exciting, I was a little worried that I wouldn’t be able to use it. I thought that maybe the technology was far more advance then my skills. I didn’t want to have to sit through multiple teaching sessions with Ryan.
Thankfully, it was been a super simple transition and I now know what I have been missing all this time! For one, I have been wasting SOOOO much time on commercials! I was in disbelief the first night when I watched two hour long shows within 1 hour! I am so glad to now be able to not sit through boring commercial after commercial!
One of the main reasons I wanted a PVR is because I am an early to bed kinda girl! I wake up purposely super early in the mornings (currently 5:19 AM) and therefore need to go to bed early as well. The problem with that, most of the good shows seemed to start after 9 PM. This is not an issue anymore! I went trigger happy the first night and recorded lots of post-9PM shows! In reality, I wasn’t missing too much but at least I have the option.
For a long time I felt like I was was the last person to embrace this piece of technology! In fact, my parents even got their own PVR 3 years ago! It wasn’t because we didn’t want one, it just never made sense to splurge on one. Other things always ended up higher on our list of “wants”. But now I feel excited to have this “little black box of awesome” to get to figure out!
Do you have a PVR?
