I used to think I would never get tired of CSI. That it was the greatest show in the world. Then CSI: Miami. Then CSI: New York. But then there were so many shiny new shows! Shows that were different. And the DVR just keeps filling up. When will I have time to write??? *wrings hands*

My husband and I have had Directv for years. When U-Verse finally came to our house, we chose to only take the internet service. We stuck with Directv. One of the reasons I didn’t want U-Verse TV is that you can DVR four shows instead of two! Sounds great, doesn’t it? But when would I actually watch all those shows. I work 8 or more hours a day, 5 days a week. I need writing time. I need cleaning house time. I need exercise time. WHEN can I watch that much TV? Oh, and then there’s Netflix. I have so many things queued up to watch. And I haven’t finished watching my Twin Peaks DVDs. I haven’t finished watching my Buffy DVDs (for about the 6th time). And I HAVE to watch Moonlight again!

I discovered the other day that I had 4 CSI:New York’s and about that many CSI and Criminal Minds on the DVR. I’m behind watching The Mentalist. I’m going to have to trim something down, but I don’t know what to give up. I’ve added The Vampire Diaries, Grimm, Once Upon a Time, and my FAVORITE, Person of Interest. I have to give up something. Well, actually I did give up one show. My husband was disappointed to find that The River, which he was waiting for anxiously, came on at the same time as one of his other shows and one of mine…Ringer. He was just going to have to skip it. He thought. But I love my hubby so much and didn’t want to disappoint him. So I gave up Ringer for The River. I actually wanted to watch it, too, so it wasn’t that hard. I’ll really miss Ringer, and maybe I can catch it on Netflix later.

Well, I watched 3 out of 4 of the CSI: New Yorks. I may keep that one. But I may ditch CSI. It’s not been the same without Grissom anyway. I’ve already ditched CSI: Miami. I don’t know if I can give up Criminal Minds.

I know I’ve been kind of rambly, but I have a hard time giving up shows and I’m feeling kind of angsty about it. What about you? When it just gets overwhelming, how do you decide what to give up and what to keep? How do you find the time to watch everything? I would really like to know!
