Random Thoughts

  • I love my tivo.
  • My Season Pass Manager is the "who's who" of cancelled programs.
  • I am so beyond ready for some new shows on television.
  • So ready in fact that I have been updating my season pass manager with new programs the last few days.
  • I am pretty sure that's the kiss of death for those shows.
  • We still don't have cable.  We must be the only people in the free world.
  • It's probably a good thing.  HGTV would be a giant time suck for me.  :)
  • The kids would be little zombies - so many shows to watch so little time.
  • The only thing I miss is football.  College Football.  Pro Football.  ESPN is creating a monopoly.
  • I don't even want to know what the Longhorn network is.
  • If A&M leaves the Big 12 will we still play Texas on Thanksgiving?
  • We went to our first Aggie football game.  ($10 kids tickets - vs. Idaho)
  • Idaho is the "Vandals."  I wonder if their mascot is a raccoon or prison pin stripes.
  • We also left at the end of the 3rd quarter.  (37-0 Aggies)
  • Like a million other people.  2 percenters!!
  • And sat in traffic on 2818 FOREVER.  There must have been a massive accident.  We saw a cop escorting a tow truck.  Never a good sign.
  • We ended up back at George Bush and Welborn.  There was absolutely no traffic. 
  • I got a maroon out shirt (after waiting in line for 30 minutes).
  • They went up from $5 to $8.  And the smallest size they have is a Youth Medium.  Which is HUGE.  The boys didn't get one.
  • I thought the 66 stairs on the way to our seats in the 33rd row would get us.  They didn't.  But the cobble stones did.  Connor got a bloody nose, 2 split lips, bleeding gums.  And the list goes on...
  • There are 38 rows in the upper deck nose bleed section.  It's still not a bad view of the game.
  • 3 year old soccer is AWESOME. 
  • 3 year old soccer sucks.
  • There are no restrooms anywhere near the soccer fields. 
  • Who thought this was a good idea?  It must be a man.
  • No matter how long you spend cleaning it will take the kids precisely 3.2 seconds to undo it all.
  • I don't remember buying the kids that many clothes.  They must be multiplying like bunnies in the hamper.  Or the baskets.  Or the couch, or the bed, or anywhere else that I have dumped all the clothes that need to be folded, paired, and put up.
  • The good thing about dressing your children the same is that you don't have to come up with 2 matching outfits.
  • The bad thing about dressing your children the same is that you have come up with 2 MATCHING OUTFITS. 
  • I haven't decided yet if I am going to sort soccer pictures or fold clothes. 
  • If I don't fold clothes I am not sure where I am going to sleep.

  1. When we found out we were having twins we cut out all unnecessary expenses, and our satellite subscription was first to go. Haven't missed it. Between netflix streaming and DVD rentals and iTunes season passes for the couple of shows we can't live without, we watch less TV, no commercials and our kids only see what we let them, commercial free. So you are not alone.
