sometimes it's nice just to sit quietly and think...

The bulb on the big TV in the living room blew out Wednesday night. Ugh! You have to order a new bulb and they cost around $80 plus they way over charge for shipping. We will never buy that stupid bulb kind of TV again because this is the 3rd bulb in 4 years! Anyway, that left me with quiet last night. I know I could have gone into another room to watch TV, we have a TV in every room, but it was kind of nice to sit in the peace and quite, crocheting and listening to the sounds of the house and my family. I could hear John talking on the phone to someone at work and Samantha in the big bed commenting & answering questions on "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader". But the new bulb should be here today and I am glad. One day without TV is plenty... I am addicted to my shows!

Yesterday after school we took my Element in to have the windshield replaced... I love this new place... We had stopped at McDonald's and I was gathering up the trash when one of the service techs came over and said: "Oh, I'll take your trash for you!"... They are so nice there. So, I am driving a little red Accord... It's cute but I miss my Pumpkin...

I think I have mentioned before that I love Samantha's teachers but I was just sitting here thinking for the one millionth time, I really love Samantha's teachers! It is so comforting to know that she is safe, happy and being well educated. Her teachers seem very conscientious about the children really learning. and, one of Samantha's teachers is quite crazy so Samantha is learning that it is not just her mother who exhibits bizarre behavior.

I would miss the sound of the TV at least, if not the actual programs.
E has a few teachers who are crazy too!
