the kid loves his grandparents

the absolute only ever ever time C is alert and ready and raring to go in the morning is those mornings we are headed up to see my folks

it may have wi-fi

this is my fancy new washing machine with all sorts of knobs, buttons, cycles and choices to make and then it tells me how it will take my clothes to wash thank you LG and thank you Sears for delivering on Sundays for only $10 extra

vacation mode

I'm in it thank you very much. I also a bit whiny about the whole thing if truth be told. I hate car travel hate it with a passion I would rather poke sticks in my eyes than sit in a car for more than an hour at a time but seeing as we can not afford multiple plane tickets we are trapped in the car for like a million hours. No really it is a million at least. And I will whine and complain and dread the whole damn ordeal all of this week plus do massive amounts of laundry, pack, get my hair cut, maybe color it as well, hopefully find time for a pedicure, drop the dog at sleep away camp, buy snacks & drinks for the car trip, charge all electrical type gadgets that need it so C survives the trip without me tossing him it the trunk.
On the plus side I am looking forward to escaping Kville & work for a week, seeing my folks & some family and getting together with some very old and dear friends. Debating back and forth in my head about going to NYC for a day and taking C to the Museum of Natural History. It will be fun but we aren't even there for a full week I don't decision was no yesterday but this morning I got train schedules so we'll see I suppose.

have I run out of things to blog about?

maybe so because I am about to weigh in on the whole Jon & Kate controversy because yes I watch the damn show and I have watched for forever now. It is a show I have loved to hate it since the first viewing but I find myself about to bid it a found adieu. Not for any moral reasons I like bad television-there said it and you know what millions of other folks do too otherwise this drivel would not make onto the airwaves to begin with. I am sorry they are having problems in their marriage it happens but quite frankly what do you expect when you choose to live your life as a reality show not just be on one. The show use to be about 2 crazy people raising their litter of children and the day to day challenges they faced. Now well good grief now it seems to be about all the free stuff they get trips, spa visits, playhouses, a motorcycle & scooter plus hanging out with Duff, Emeril as well as the boys from OCC. They don't even have to work anymore although have managed to find a whole lot great land with a great house but boo-hoo they have to do a book tour every now and again. I'll tell you what TLC give my family a show "David & Paula plus 1" for all the money, endorsements & free stuff I too can nag the hell out of my husband.
