Watching TV on my computer!!!!
We all know that I love TV and I love some shows, honestly, I think that if I could, I would probably spend days glued in front of the tv screen. I'm one of those people that likes all kinds of shows so I can usually find something to watch.
Unfortunately, I'm either really busy, running around, or the kids take over the TV so I find myself missing a lot of shows that I'm interested in.
I had hear about TV Computer Cards, which allow you to watch TV on your computer, but I kept thinking, NAH, I mean really, how good would that be??? I had also heard that you can record your shows straight to the computer so you can watch them later.....sound great so far???
UMMMMM HELLOOOOOO...I should have done it earlier.
Yesterday I had to run to the BX for some stuff and I happened to glance at one of the shelves. There is was....Hauppauge WinTV2000 for $75. I didn't know whether to pick it up or not, but I really really wanted to check it out, so I picked it up. It's inexpensive and let me tell you, I'm NOW watching tv, yes, watching tv while I blog. I can make it as big as my tv monitor or I can have it always on top in the corner AND I can record my shows.
I'm so thrilled you have no idea, NEVER again will I miss Grey's Anatomy, Ugly Betty, General Hospital or American Idol or Survivor or whatever.........I can even set a timer on it to record a show while I'm away from the computer....or I can be watching one channel and recording a different one. And even better, I have the clips saved on my computer so I can watch it whenever I want to.
Anyway, I finally managed to make it to all your blogs and leave comments.....except for Liz (Looneybin4sure) and Hub....for some reason, every single time I try to load up their blogs, it crashes my computer LOL
I'm not sure what is going on, but I'll keep trying.
Little Nicholas is finally getting sick too, he's walking around sniffling and this morning he said "Mommy I can't go anywhere, I'm sick"....well that would be ok if daddy was home, but it's not like I can just leave him home while I pick up Jasmine. He cracks me up with the things he says though, and so does Jasmine.
Yesterday we were talking and I don't recall what I told her, but she looks at me and says "You're freaking me out man" LOL Man?!?!?!?!
Where does she get these things, it's like the other day she was telling me about one of the boys in her class, and she was explaining how he is always getting in trouble because he whines and cries for everything....then she says to me "Ugh he annoys me, he kept whining to me and finally I just said "golly, do you want some crackers to go with that wine?" HAHAHAHAHA
She's a feisty one, definitely going to keep me and her daddy (him especially) on our toes during her teenage years.
Thursday she has a Spring Concert at school, at 2:30pm and 6:30pm, and we've been told (by her) that she has to be there for both times. Apparently it counts towards their grade, so she's paranoid about being there and not missing it for anything in the world. Since Curt is in class this week, I'll be there at 2:30pm with Nicholas and then we will ALL be there again at 6:30pm.....will be a day full of Spring thoughts and songs about Groundhogs. Can't wait!!!
Anyway, I have to tell you, I have met the sweetest ladies through blogging. You all know how much I love you guys and it's amazing how friendships are formed even when you've never met in person.
I was talking with Elizabeth through emails and she told me she was sending me something, boy was I ecstatic when I got the mail this weekend and was met with a package full of books. You know the way to my heart Elizabeth LOL Thank you so much :) She's such a sweetheart and I love her to pieces :)
Then yesterday, I get home and grab the mail to find a beautiful "Get Well" card from the other sweetheart Eden. What a sweet thing to do and it definitely made my day :) Thank you Eden :)
Everytime I'm sick I get lazy, really lazy. I don't want to do anything and so I have to find ways to force myself to get up and clean, cook dinner and well, continue being a mommy and wife I guess.
So I'm sitting here and I know I have to go sweep and mop the kitchen floor and I don't want to. I could get away with not doing it but I doubt anyone wants to keep stepping on that sticky spot. You know the ones that mysteriously appear and NO ONE did it??? Don't you just love that???
Anyway, I'm outta here, have errands to run and things to do. Hope you're all having a wonderful Tuesday, remember to take one day at a time, enjoy it to the fullest and stop worrying about those things which we can not control. Lay it all in the Lord's hands and watch how much easier your life can be :)
