NoThanks – Day 5

I’m trying really hard to keep my eyes open so I’m keeping today’s NoThanks really simple. I’m thankful for my DVR. It’s made me a better wife, a better mother, and a better person all around. I don’t have to worry about missing a favorite show or an anticipated program. Also,¬†we’ve gotten to where we…

High Quality Entertainment

I’m not a huge fan of television – I think it wastes brain cells and steals time, neither of which I have a large supply of – so I don’t get into very many shows. In fact I limit the number of programs I’ll allow myself to obsess over. So what am I obsessing over…

Just A Few Things

I finally got a donation button put on my sidebar, but I can’t figure out how to put my progress indicator over there. So I will try to get one of those tickers like Sing 4 Joy has on her blog at some point this week. I am thrilled to say that I’ve received over…

What’s Been Going On

Wednesday night Todd and I went with Ben and his fiance, Katie (not to be confused with our Katie) to a Shane and Shane concert. For those of you who aren’t familiar with contemporary Christian bands you probably have no idea who they are. They’re a pretty awesome accoustic (mostly) band and a lot of…

Prison Girls or Gilmore Break

I mentioned on Friday that Todd and I were going to watch Gilmore Girls that night, but instead we watched Ben’s first season of Prison Break. Which, when you think about it, is the same show with a different backdrop. Gilmore Girls – Two attractive brunette relatives. Prison Break – Two attractive brunette relatives. Gilmore…

Ho Hum

I don’t know what my deal is, but I haven’t been able to write a thing. I’ve been working on my Lake Perris post and my 2005 Race for the Cure post and neither one of them are fit for publication. I compose brilliant, award-winning narratives in the shower, in the car, while I’m washing…
