It was the week that I cancelled Family cable...
Isn't ironic that the week I get rid of all of those cable channels, we all get sick and are homebound? That is how funny my life is. There are other channels, oh let's say in the 100's that are just as good. I'm lucky to have those. I may not have Comedy Network but we have Noggin and THE TUBE. Not You Tube, but The Tube. If you were as addicted to MTV like I was, this will be a truly wonderful station to go to every once in a while. I forgot how much I liked "Shock The Monkey". Seeing Simon LeBon run through the jungle in "Hungry Like the Wolf" made me realize he looked like a young Malcom McDowell.
So we watched too much tv. I was worried my son would get used to it, but he's fine, and now we laugh about all the shows we watched.
I lost my Christmas spirit which was harsh. I didn't care about anything and was in some sort of sick funk. I'm better now. We all went to The New York Botanical Gardens in The Bronx to see this Train Show. Very cool. All of these historic NYC buildings are made out of natural earthy things, and models trains zoom in and around them and the plants. That was uplifting. (Of course seeing all the orchids and my pitcher plants helped too.) So yesterday I put lights up and I'm very pleased. Today I will work on my cards.
Also, and this is huge. My crack/prostitute neighbors moved out! Hooray!! Their landlord raised the rent and they couldn't pay it. I know the owner must have been bugged by the city to do something. That still doesn't change my mind about moving. The schools are still horrible.
