Column: Changing interests in life make keeping neat tough

We don’t watch much television at our house. We don’t have cable or a satellite dish. We keep it simple and make do with the “rabbit ears” perched atop our set.

This situation limits our choices of programs, which we consider a good thing in that it gives us one more reason to do something else rather than watch TV. This is not to say we are anti-TV; we both agree the medium has its uses.

As a matter of fact, recently Becky and I have been tuning in to a show which has inspired us to get busy changing our house and, in some sense, our lives.

It is a syndicated series out of Canada called “Neat.” We pick it up from our limited over-the-air choices on ION Life. It is not groundbreaking or innovative, just one of many makeover-type shows, but it has captured our attention. Although Becky and I individually go though periods where we get annoyed by the clutter and disorganization around us, we aren’t always motivated to do something about it at the same time.
