It was not easy but we did it. We actually kept a log of how often we used our home telephone from January of this year, until the end of July. Our kids, who have their own cell phones, and communicate wholly by texting, never used it once. My wife used it about 10 times, and I used it 4 times.
Even harder for my wife and I was the idea of parting with the old trusted home phone. We are a bit old school, I guess, in our idea that we must have one. But everytime that one of us came up with a reason for keeping the thing, it was much easier to come up with a reason to get rid of it.
So we did it. No more home phone. It feels kinda wierd, but I am sure we will get used to it.
