Today was also pacific. I didn't work at home, which helped. But I seem to be getting much more at ease without the TV. Of course, I don't want to say this with too much confidence, because I may feel differently tomorrow.
Today I also started listening to this audio book while ironing the clothes and I really enjoyed it.
Something interesting that I've noticed is that, without the TV, the evenings now seem longer (and quieter). That is good.
