So this weekend started NFL's preseason (I'm not even going to comment on Farve). I have been looking forward to watching football ever since the season ended! But why do they have to overlap with the Olympics??? What were they thinking?!
I'm convinced this was a plan by the cable company. They are upset that I still haven't upgraded to all of those fancy options. So I can't Tivo the game while I watch the Olympics or vice versa. The problem is that I just don't have that much time to watch TV (I'm busy blogging, you know ;) ).
In reality the kids monopolize the TV in our house. When the kids aren't watching TV I might be able to watch what I wanted if I wasn't busy keeping the kids out of trouble. So I'm either busy doing something with the kids or I'm begging them to watch TV so I can
Now everyone who doesn't have kids says, "can't you just watch TV once the kids are in bed?" The answer is sure! Great idea! Except that I have to clean up all the messes that the kids made during the day, call back and email everyone that I didn't have time to talk or send an email to during the day and then come up with some kind of plans for the next day so the kids will be occupied, stimulated and grow into wonderful young men, or so they at least stop burping in restaurants.
In other news, my husband did return from India yesterday. He brought lots of presents and pictures. He is now sleeping on the couch with a tummy ache. Hopefully things will be back to normal by next weekend :)
