Smart Decisions

In this time of economic crisis and nationwide turmoil, with all of the uncertainty and budget-consciousness and I'm-Making-All-Of-My-Christmas-Presents-From-Scratch-This-Year-Do-You-Have-A-Cow-I-Can-Milk?

Yeah. That was weird.

So. With all of the ever-growing awareness of how much things cost, my husband and I have decided that the best decision for our family is... to get a better cable company. With more channels. HGTV! PBS Sprout! And DVR. So we can watch those programs over. And over. And over again!

Seriously. We're doing it for the good of the economy, people! We'll be spending about $9 more per month, and getting a much faster internet connection, phone service and the best selection of cable channels I have ever had in my life. The excitement! Oh, the pizza-ordering possibilities!!

I am in TV heaven. Well, I will be. After they hook it up on the 29th.

I'm so ready to be done with Com "Do-You-Think-The-Internet-Will-Work-Today?" Cast. But I'm not bitter. Not at all.

Because I have visions of sugarplums, you know, the ones Martha Stewart shows you how to make on HGTV (is she even on HGTV?) dancing in my head.

You thought I was a homebody before? Just wait until I get HGTV and DIY and Lifetime and On Demand. I'll never leave the house again!!

Snow Play

Yesterday was a lazy day for us. The boys were SO excited to see about an inch of snow on the ground when they woke up!! They bugged me for an hour until I finally gave in and dug their snowsuits out of the storage room. I just love Children's Orchard! I had gotten them for $15 each when they had all of their coats out, you know, in August. Because what reasonable person isn't thinking about frolicking in the snow in the 95-degree humidity of the summer?
They were soon (soon is a relative word... about 30 minutes later) bundled up and ready to brave the elements. They headed out the door with much gusto... and came back inside less than 20 minutes later.
It was really cold, I had to agree.
But the smiles on their, whatever face that is that Griffin was making... were worth all of the work it took to get them out there.
Have fun playing in your snow!
