Stream of Consciousness: Part 13

My husband has been so damn helpful since my surgery. I have been spoiled. I am not sure I can go back to my old life style.
__________

I have read on several people's blogs that they are getting rid of television. What are you crazy people thinking? This is the year 2008, not 1908! And who is going to babysit your kids? All kidding aside, I am envious that you can function without TV. Unfortunately, we love TV in Cakerwakerville, and I can never envision a time without TV in my household.
__________

We had our furnace and roof replaced this week. I was positive that my children wouldn't sleep. And I was completely wrong. They both took long naps, despite the noise. Apparently, I need to start making more racket during nap time.
__________

I am feeling really good this week. All of my pain is gone, and I have been able to eat a wider variety of foods, without fear of a gallstone attack. THANK GOODNESS! My beans only diet was killing me. I had some gnocchi in marinara sauce tonight. It was wonderful!
__________

For Mother's Day, we went out to eat with both babies. I knew Porgie would be good, but I wasn't so sure about Izzy. The evening was fabulous! Porgie colored during the entire meal, and Izzy happily chewed on a rattle. I was so proud.

And I'll leave you with this...

I am so glad to hear you are feeling better. It sounds like you had a lovely Mother's Day! I could get rid of the T.V.- as long as I could still watch Smallville- but my hubs could not go without it.

There will be no getting rid of TV in this house either. I do watch too much TV, although I don't "watch it" all day, it pretty much stays on from the time I get up until the time I go to bed. I just like having background noise if nothing else!

And congrats on eating out with two happy babies! We're still trying to make it through a meal with one...

I will not be joining the Little House on the Prairie movement either...I like Lost too much for that.

NO WAY...could we go without TV in our house. Not so much for Ellie, but I think mom and dad would go crazy without our shows:)

It's always amazing how much the hubbies actually step up when we are sick. No TV, what are people crazy?
