Thank goodness for technology

Thank goodness for technology. I was getting caught up on this season of “Arrow” this afternoon when I accidentally deleted the most recent episode before watching it. Oops! Obviously I still have some things to learn about my DVR. Luckily cable TV providers aren’t the only game in town anymore. (Actually the first place I looked for the episode was Time Warner’s On Demand catalog, but it wasn’t there. Two strikes for cable TV.) Instead I turned to my iPad. It only took a few minutes to download the CW app and start watching last week’s episode. Not too many years ago I would have had to wait for summer reruns to see whatever I’d missed! But now with readily available episodes of just about every television show you could ever want to see streaming online, my little DVR mistake made no difference at all. I love it! I’ve been under a lot of pressure at work lately and watching TV when I get home each evening helps me unwind. Unfortunately it also keeps me from getting an optimal number of chores done around the house, but it’s a small price to pay for stress relief. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to relax and watch Sunday’s “Once Upon A Time” before going to bed!
