Frosted Flakes and Hot Chocolate...

Not the most nutritional of breakfasts, but I needed a title and that is what is sitting in front of me right now, so, yes.

I'm actually going to take the time to tell you a little something. Or perhaps whine to you about a little something...

I MISS television!

SO badly. I will admit to the fact that I was something of a tv addict before I got married, moved away, and faced the prospect of paying for a cable bill. I think that I would actually just turn it on for some noise in the background most of the time, but then would get roped into sitting and watching ridiculous things.

Now that we're all "independent," and stuff (which totally stinks, let me tell you,) I have not had television in THREE months. Three! Now, mind you, we own two televisions, so that's not the problem. It's getting the cable hooked up. However, there is hope on the horizon of my television coveting. It looks like we should be getting cable in the next week or two. I don't think Ian really understands just how many shows I adore, lol.

I won't bore you with the details of everything, but I will give you a "small," glimpse into what I am excited about:

The Biggest Loser
Grey's Anatomy
The Office
Jon and Kate Plus 8
The Amazing Race
Man vs Wild

Just to name a few. Luckily, Ian likes most of that list. Except I think he really hates Jon and Kate Plus 8.

Okay, I KNOW he hates it. I think because of the picture of her preganant sextuplet belly-it really grosses him out. It probably doesn't help that I say "I want 6 kids too!" everytime the intro music comes on, or the fact that TLC plays constant marathons, and I insist on watching them even though I have seen them ALL before.

Oh TV, how I can't wait to veg out in front of you at every given chance.


Only, I'm not kidding.

I wonder if they have a recovery program for TV addiction. Hmmm. I wonder what they would call it????

You know, if you guys dont get cable and you're really jones-ing for a TV fix, you can watch alot of shows on the network websites. And they have other free websites that stream TV. You just have to make sure they're legal, but I do know of 1 thats called Hoola or Hula, something like that.
Just a thought.

Thanks for the laugh, Britt!! Oh, how I needed it!! There's really nothing all that good on TV right now, except I have been glued to Fox's coverage of the elections. Give it a week and all the good stuff starts! Hopefully the cable will be in by then! I love Jon and Kate Plus 8, too! If you ever get home for a visit and a marathon of it is on- I'll watch it with ya!! Kate blows me away with her Type A-ness!! Who the heck else is crazy enough to take 8 kids to Park City, Utah on a ski trip?!! I wouldn't do it with 4! Too funny!
By the way, Honey, you've got to work on the nutrition! Frosted Flakes and hot chocolate? Not good!
