I have a competitor at home who is making my married life Hell....Television/Idiot Box...better known as TV. I cannot understand if I should be angry on DH's addiction towards TV or is it just me...its really getting on my nerves. He switches on the TV first thing in morn to do his workout.No complains on this one.But once this is done he switches on the News channel and its on until he leaves for work :coffee.This is also acceptable since its for abt an hour and current affairs are important. Goes to work for abt 12 hours.I don't expect him to come home for lunch,call in between,come online or even come home early.The moment he comes home switches on the damn thing,then keeps his bag down,removes his shoes and the remaining activities of freshening up,dinner etc...all while his eyes and ears are glued to TV.Irrespective of how much I try to distract his attention he continues to watch till he's fallen asleep on sofa @ 12am.Much to my dismay,we have a TV in our bedroom.So when he realises he's fallen asleep on sofa...he comes to the bedroom..and there goes the remote in his hand for some more time. Last night I really lost it.I got upset that he didn't enquire about what I did the whole day or if any updates about my job interviews.He knows I am getting impatient sitting at home.I got hyper irritated just at the sound coming from TV when he came to sleep @ 1 and I freaked out on him.:rant This is not the first time he's doing it.Even while in India he would watch TV all weekend without going out anywhere and I wouldn't bother since I was independent.And also he and mil would have TV fights.But here in US he has the TV all by himself.I have told many times in India about his addiction and he reduces it for a few days and gets back to his old habits. Now comes the funny part:Today morn he switched on to do his workout and then switched off the TV.While having bfast also no TV But kept staring at me from time to time ( i can't explain but just the way kids do) I couldn't help smiling at this.The moment he saw me smiling n giggling....there's goes on the TV !!!!!!!!!! How do I reduce his addiction.I'm not saying its bad to watch TV.But there should be some limit. Please give me some tips...I am so irritated that I feel like cutting the cables!!!
