Quote Bizzie Fan: Hi Sandra, Thanks for suggesting this thread. Since GL has gone off, I have not been watching any soap on a daily basis. I have watched ATWT twice at home. I have watched Y&R 4 times, DOOL 4 times, and OLTL 3 times. I watched these on soapnet while I was traveling. When I am at home, I just don't turn the T.V. on. I just can't get into another soap. Years ago I had watched DOOL on and off, but after watching it this past week on soapnet, I don't see myself watching it again when I get back home. Maybe, somewhere down the road I will get interested in another soap, but right now, all I do when I watch another soap is think how much better a soap GL was and then I miss it more.
Do you travel? I have watch OLTL afew times,Its not bad,But nothing like GL
I use to watch Y&R~B&B~ATWT but now I never watch those soaps.I might check out ATWT again when Tom comes to town,But thats the only reason.
I do travel when I get the time. I love traveling. This last trip that we took was the first trip that we had been on since GL went off. While we had a good time, it made me miss GL even more. Normally, no matter where we would go, whether we were in our motorhome or on the beach somewhere, when it was time for GL, we either pulled into WalMart in the motorhome or came in from the beach to watch GL. It's funny and at the same time it's sad how you get use to scheduling your day/time for 40 some years and then it's changed and you didn't even have a say so in it.
I agree with you about it being hard at GL time, my brain just will not allow me to be somewhere other than in front of the tv when ATWT goes off.....however it has just been a little over a month, maybe my brain will catch up with the real world soon!!! I used to listen to it on radio and then of course followed it over to tv, so it has been hard for me to let go, just like it has for millions of other viewers.
I, too love to travel but you are so right about our schedules having to work around GL, did it for years, drs. appointments, hair appointments, etc. all had to be done before or after 2!! Maybe the secret to that is I had no life!! Anyway, hope that it gets easier for all of us GL lovers, and I am sure it will. I have enjoyed reading your post for years, and am so thankful that Chrissi and Sandra made this thread for us, we all need to stay in touch!!
