Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

Cry Me a River

We have a home theatre in our new house. This Christmas, Melvin finally had it all installed and we've been enjoying it immensely for the past month.

But it will continue to look exactly like the above photo for the next few weeks (at least). You see, the darn thing broke on us. Some thing is wrong with the project, so we now need to send it back (since we purchased it online) and be at the company's mercy.

The other night Cameron was watching Wallace and Grommit on our regular TV. I asked him how the movie was. His reply, "It's boring watching it up here."

And today, I planned to have a friend over to watch a movie. My husband said something like, "So now what are you going to do?" We'll do what we always used to do and what the rest of the world does...watch a movie on a regular TV.

We're so spoiled!!!!!

But at least now I won't have to clean up this mess...left by about a dozen kids (with most of the mess probably coming from one little monster who resides in my household who decided it was more important to walk around and take handfuls of everyone else's popcorn to add to his own overflowing bowl than to just sit and enjoy the movie)

Thanks for hosting our wild bash, Cari. That was truly a great night with friends.

On a more serious note, do you have a Warranty besides the 1st year warranty? These fancy electronic luxuries repair costs can be quite high. We don't usually invest in these warranties but this time we did with our plasma.

I had the mom's from my spiritual spa over that night you called. It was so much fun, and the kids had a blast.

lh, I have to admit, it is fun. A friend came over last night and we watched a movie on the regular TV...I did not like it.

Kim, I had such a good time having you all over. So glad you kept me company.

Mom, I have no idea if Melvin got the extended warranty. He ordered it online. He called and has to send it back when he returns from his trip.
