From Depressing to Delighted

Yeah - my last post was a bit depressing. I apologize for that. It was just one of those mornings for me. On a different note, the reason why I'm delighted is we have NO television.

Ameren UE came out to the house this morning to move and reroute some wires that were touching our roof according to a City complaint. Power had to be shut off for 15 minutes the husband says. Ameren takes off for the hills and guess what? They effed something up with our satellite and DISH can't come out until this Sunday to look at it. I think the husband is having a little stroke over this. Ugh! The glutton for punishment I am, I just had to go home for lunch and all I heard about was how Ameren was going to pay for this, blah, blah, blah. I was really trying to hold my cool with him about it. I did, however, tell him that I'm sure a supervisor is going to get right on our problem when there were thousands of customers that were without power due to the ice storms St. Louis and the Metropolitan area encountered this weekend.

So, a very long and bitchy story short, it looks like the T family is going to have some sorely needed family bonding time this week. It's either going to be a good thing for us or quite the opposite, divorce court and/or jail time because I strangled him to death.

Oh my, I think we would go insane, or at least I would. I need tv to veg out and let my brain shut down after the kids are in bed and I honestly use it in the mornings to babysit since my kids get up at the butt crack of dawn. A whole week without tv.....time to head to blockbuster!!

I think you'll find it is a blessing. We don't have tv in this house (ok we do occasionally watch some pbs) and I think it is the greatest thing EVER. Plus if you ditched your satellite/cable permanently you get the exquisite joy of telling the cable telemarketers: "no I don't have cable" and "no I don't have satellite" and then they ask what you do instead and you get to say something really pedantic and obnoxious like "read". Ah, nothing more fun than being an elitist. Really it makes up for all those hours of Gray's Anatomy I never saw.

I hope things are going well for you. Or at least better. KEEP BLOGGING!! I love it! I miss you guys!
