I Was Going to Blog

Yes, I really was. Then I realized I really have nothing to say tonight. So, now I’m blogging about not having anything to say. Not quite the interesting tidbit is it?

New Cellular Plan

I’m shopping for a new cellular company. I’ve been with Sprint for over three years now and I really, really dislike them. I’m paying over $60 a month for the same plan I’ve seen elsewhere for about $40. I checked out T-Mobile and I really like their 300 minute plan. You pick the five numbers you call the most and get unlimited minutes, unlimited nights and weekends, plus the 300 regular minutes and 400 domestic text messages for less than $45 a month. Activation is only $35 and I can get a $180 phone for FREE, plus free shipping. Now I’m just waiting to find out what it’s going to cost to lose Sprint. They are sooooo very expensive!

Opening New Toys

I need a scissors, a knife, bandaids and probably a good paramedic to open the packaging that accompanies a child’s toy these days. And, it takes me about 20 minutes to then figure out how the toy actually comes out. My son, on the other hand, who has reached the ripe old age of six, requires merely his bare hands and about five minutes of ripping and tearing.

$100 to Quit

Yesterday at Christmas my grandma (former smoker) pulled me aside in the kitchen and offered me $100 if I could quit for one year. She said all I needed to do was pick the date and keep her updated on my progress. When I’ve been “clean” the full year, she’ll hand me a crisp, new $100 bill. Am I up to the challenge? I think I counted a whole 7 or 8 cigarettes today…a large contrast to my former 20+ I was smoking just a few months ago. Perhaps I can do it?

Santa was Good to Us

By, “us”, I mean the kids of course! I think they got just about anything they could want, plus a little extra to tide them over. I’m still opening boxes with toys jammed and stuffed inside…it will never end. Because of the influx of toys I not only had to buy new “toy boxes”, I’ve also decided that this year it’s ONE gift for birthdays. We don’t need another darn thing.

Topping the list of cool gifts:

Digital Camera (son)
iDog (daughter)

Other cool stuff:

Princess Pony
Princess and Castle Playset
Power Rangers
Board Games (galore!)
…and plenty more!

"Man Cave"

While not listed on Wikpedia, man cave is definitely a phrase used in our home quite often. This summer, when the temperatures in our non-air conditioned home reached degrees my husband couldn’t sleep in, he started “building” his man cave. It now contains broken furniture, a nightstand with television, dvd player and radio and a rug our dogs destroyed a few months ago. Despite it’s apparent discomforts, this is where my husband often relaxes. After work, he sits there to watch a movie and have a few beers. Our dogs often accompany him on his visits to the man cave; frequently falling asleep contentedly on his lap while he gently strokes their ears.

Today, I decided the man cave was in desperate need of refreshing. So, I vacuumed the yucky rug of it’s mounds of shed dog hair, fabreezed the furniture and sleeping bag, picked up any garbage lying around and discarded the empty beer cans and bottles to the recycling bin. When my husband got home and I told him I had cleaned up his man cave he seemed slightly shocked. He didn’t think there was anything wrong with his little corner of our basement…so I guess next time maybe I should reconsider touching the man cave. Perhaps a little dirt is what a guy needs to relax. Or perhaps it’s just not cool to have your wife give it a straigtening up.
