middle of day 3

So, this is the middle of day 3 with no cable tv...and want to know something? it was the best choice i could have made so far this summer...i dont have the boys nagging me for tv time, and whining because i say no...they are finding other things to do...and actually enjoying it...the background noise in the house isnt irritating me...now i can hear more of the kids giggles...thats a better more more pure sound anyway! Most of the shows that i like, i can get online, and im saving money by doing that...and time really...they show a few 15 second commercials, but not the long drawn out ones you get on TV...i dont miss it...and totally less distraction...

Dominic and steven are grounded off the trampoline...ive told them over and over, no toys up there cuz someone is gonna get hurt...well, dominic took a toy up there, and they continued to jump...Steven landed on it, and has a huge bruise on his face...it could have taken his eye out...so, they are grounded off of it....im tired of having to yell about it, and they are old enough to remember the rules...

im on a quest to find ways to live cheaper...and so far so good...now if i can just get some savings started because my van just isnt gonna make it much longer...and i dont know what i will do when it finally dies...i live in BFE with no friends around...so there would be no one to help me get around...i would be totally screwed...so, im trying very hard to figure that out...

anyway, time to go get the boys from school..

Even though we have cable, I go many days with the tv off. Your right the sounds the kids make is a perfect background noise. I get more things doen and the kids play in their rooms using their wonderful imaginations. Bravo to you my dear.
