February Blogging Challenge -- Day 24

24) What is something you've been avoiding? Why are you putting it off? How would you feel if you took care of it?

I need a new TV. I don't want one, I need one. I still have a tube TV and last year, at the beginning of the pandemic, when an Xfinity repairman upgraded my modem, he told me that "soon" the box next to my TV would no longer be supported.

I'm putting it off for three reasons: 

1) My old-school TV suits my purposes and I hate to see something in a landfill that's still working

 2) I haven't purchased a new TV in (literally) 20 years and I'm worried that the one I choose won't work with my Xfinity services and I'll lose everything on my DVR

3) I'll have to beg and plead for a cable guy to come out because NO WAY can I hook up this TV alone.

It's easier to pull the covers over my head and maintain the status quo. Though I guess the decision really isn't mine.

I'll feel better when it's done. But the step-by-step of it -- choosing the TV, having it delivered, wooing Xfinity to send someone out with the new equipment and to take the old box away, and then calling a junk man to take the TV (and lots of other stuff) away -- gives me agita.

  2. We have 5 tv's in our home but only use 3 on a regular basis. The grands use the others when they are here. Maybe you should read up on all that is out there so that when you current TV dies, you have an idea of what you want.

  3. That would be a chore. I do not envy your having to deal with that.

  4. Buy one from Best Buy they will do all of that for you. Of course there may be a fee...but its worth it for them to do the work. Hook up, set up and take away! I have had them do it for me. It was great!
