So Dish Network came to put in more wall jacks so I could move the TV to different parts of the livingroom. Within the last month, I have rearranged ours and Emma’s rooms. I can’t have a room stay like it is for to long. Dustin called home one afternoon and I ran to the phone out of breath. He asked why I way out of breath and I didn’t want to tell him I had blocked the door with the dresser and was trying to move it to get to the phone so the girls wouldn’t wake up. I responded with the cool, calm and collected, “no reason” and he told me to quit moving furniture around. Man does he know me or what?!?
Anyway, Dish Network not only drilled a hole in our ceiling and didn’t tell me, they also didn’t install the jacks right and now we have no satellite. I’M A STAY-AT-HOME MOM, I NEED THE DISNEY CHANNEL!! I NEED FOOD NETWORK! I NEED BRAVO! I don’t know what my obsession with Bravo is, but I have to have my bravo reality shows. They can’t come until Monday and I’ve watched:
My Big Fat Greek Wedding (twice), Ice Age the Meltdown (twice), Serendipity, Cars, Baby Einstein’s , Premonition, Batman Begins, The Family Stone, X-Men – X2 United, the 40-year-old Virgin, Baby’s First Moves, Barbie’s 12 Dancing Princesses, Barnyard, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse – Mickey Saves Christmas (4 times), VeggieTales – Gideon the Tuba Warrior, Happy Feet. And for Happy Feet being targeted towards children, it was a little suggestive with the penguins dancing to the Artist formally known as Prince or Prince’s song Kiss. It was a little PG-13 if you ask me and just a little too weird for small children to be watching.
I’d like to point out that I haven’t stuck my children in front of the TV all day to watch these movies, but some were on repeat while we went outside to play or did other things. I’m not a bad mom! Of course Dust and Emma ran to town for a billion things and picked up some movies and of course one of them didn’t work. What is it with our luck and TV related things. Everything else works smoothly for us, why not the TV and TV paraphernalia? I’m so about to go nuts, but I think once Ellie starts to feel better and things get a little more normal around here, I’ll quit obsessing about the lack of satellite TV at 1:00 a.m.
