TV Wars

Tonight my husband and I got into an argument. Over the tv. It wasn't even about what to watch. At least not directly.

We just got Netflix. It's amazing and now downloaded onto every device that I can download it to. (For the record, that's two iPhones, one iPod, one non phone functioning iPhone, an iPad and two game systems. We.... are a little obsessed with technology in this house.)

My husband at first questioned the need or want for this service. He happily ignored me when I downloaded it and started watching old, slightly bad British shows (they look better on the phone than the pad.)

Over a week or so he started watching over my shoulder. Another week and he requested that I download it onto our tv.

That brings us to tonight. My husband took control of the remote and was struck by the sheer choice he had.

Now not everything on there is good mind you, but that just made the time it took for my husband to make a bloody choice that much longer.

After looking through half the choices, and a good twenty minutes later he finally got tired of me begging him to choose.

I foresee many an argument in my future.

The Pantless Wonder

Does anyone out there have any tips on how to keep pants on a three year old? Because at this point I'm beginning to consider either duct tape or staples.

I never thought I'd have this problem when I had kids. I anticipated the antics of my daughter, she would happily spend all day changing her outfit. My oldest on the other hand would ate happily be naked all the time.

Did I mention that it's the middle of winter and freaking cold outside?

I get my son dressed in the morning and less than five minutes later I see a little streaking toddler. It's a constant battle.

I'm thinking the duct tape will work best.

Well hello again

This is me attempting to hold onto a little of my self.

Over the past year I have slowly let bits of what makes me who I am disappear. It started out innocently enough. My laptop died. We decided not to replace it because it was an expense we didn't want to deal with at the time. Unfortunately that meant that I was no longer able to write.

My laptop meant that I could drag it around and type a few minutes here and there. We have a desktop but sitting down behind that meant that my kids had that much more time and opportunity to cause chaos.

It got to the point where I willingly gave up so many bits of myself that I didn't recognise myself anymore.

It was a dark time.

Two weeks ago something changed for me. The biggest thing was I had my third child. He's so beautiful and now that I'm not pregnant anymore, I'm not sick. Feeling healthy is a wonderful thing.

With this restored health, I've made a promise to myself to take back some of what I had lost. Like a clean bedroom. And writing.

This is my start.
