I didn't know how to use it, but got a really brief tutorial (Push DVR List, Select, and Push Play)..and I asked the Tutorialist to record me some shows: Candice Tells All (3pm-Kid Time!), Nate Berkus (at 12:30am) and Sarah's (summer) House (2:30am), since the good shows only come on in the night. Ha! Does that mean I like unpopular shows? or do they put the best shows at bad times since people will watch them either way? Hmm..I'll get back to you after polling.
I'm getting time to sit and watch tv (and write to you) since Mary Claire is home sick today-she felt awful early this morning (before wake-up time), and after a visit to our doctor's office, we learned she has a double-ear infection. She and Swimming? Not so much pals right now. She's medicated (nose spray, antibiotics, Tylenol, and some TLC), and we are working on blood sugars now. She's risen from 180 to 251, and now we work on her temporary basal till we get the numbers controlled. (until they drop when the antibiotics take control of that infection..) And the ear infection is contagious? Ethan just cried at the ball park, I got him home and into bed, and his eardrum just ruptured-ick. I was taking him to the doctor in the morning, but I guess it couldn't wait. Darn genetic bad ears.
Anywho..Sarah is now building a summer cottage (super cute!), it's only reach-able by boat so she's having to boat all her supplies out, and I can't imagine! I like that she is cottage-y (even in her regular houses), and uses color, white, older stuff from flea markets as well as new stuff (from Pottery Barn, my fave!).
Speaking of..I got a new table Saturday on my anniversary Day Out! It won't be here for another week or two, but it's Coming... I wanted less orangey table (what I have now), and more pine and country (Umm..does this mean I'm stepping back into pre-technology?).
|I'm keeping my black french chairs, and I'll use them. I just need to paint the room, add new chair cushions, change my blinds..Ha! One little thing can throw you over the (decorating) edge! : )|
I also fell in *love* with this beautiful Parker House entertainment center-doesn't it scream Holly? Hahaha! (or can only I can hear its high-pitched voice?) It was more expensive than the table, so we are debating. We also went out to look at wood flooring for our kitchen/breakfast/hearth room, and we can't have it all. Alas, I must make a decision. (Not a four-letter-word, but might as well be!)
ps-I will not miss commercials : )
(but...I just saw a blip of a Juicy Juice box with Cars pictures on the fronts-we are buying those..and when I checked out their website, they have Spy School-check it out!)
oh yeah, oh yeah! Register for the applique/monogrammed towel-leave a comment and your first name...drawing on Saturday, June 4th! That's sooo long-I'll only do a couple days next time-I'm ready to MAKE it already! : )
