Tim and I have, in a semi-jokingly fashion, been talking about getting a DVR (digital video recorder) so we could record our favorite shows when we are gone or watching other shows. Well, the joking stopped when I found out that the 2 hour season finale of Amazing Race would be airing during a new episode of Lost. What else could I do? I got on the phone with my cable company and ordered us up a DVR, to be delivered and installed before the crisis night. (Tim was pumped to find out that the DVR could record our High Def channels.) Phew! That was a close one! Let me refer all of you back to my entry about my TV addiction. Go ahead and make fun of me…I would be making fun of me too. However, think twice about your pointing and snickering. Who will you call when you want something recorded?
Today has been, yet another, rainy day! I know we need the rain but I was really hoping for some sun or at least a dry day today. Due to the rain, they had to cancel the kids’ parade for Tulip Time. I was really bummed because the parade would have been the only Tulip Time festivity that Abbi and I would attend this year. We were looking forward to seeing Uncle Scottie and other friends marching in their Dutch costumes. We may try to go to the big parade tomorrow if it’s not raining. Unfortunately Tim has to work again this year and will not be able to join us. I guess there is always next year. Sorry Abbi for making your first Tulip Time a big flop!
