2009 Welcomes Our Family

We got a DVR.

TV can be paused, recorded, and fast forwarded. Who knew?!

Drew scheduled the man to come between 5 and 8 on Tuesday night. I leave for Bible study about 6 so he thought it would be perfect for him to come while I was gone.

He came at ten to five.

Of course.

Levi just woke up from a nap and wanted to be nursed. Dinner needed to be made. I was wearing a cute shirt with Nike shorts. There was a sea of toys on the living room floor.

I looked ridiculous, the baby was crying, and the boys were fighting. And when you took a step, you risked either bodily harm or breaking a toy.

He came in and confirmed that the man who came on Friday did not give us a DVR box but a cable box. And went back to his truck to get the DVR box.

I threw toys in bins and called the living room good enough.

Then I had to show him how to prop open the tv cabinet door with a pillow because it likes to close.

Levi was getting more and more antsy. Toys were not distracting him.

I pulled out my Hotsling pouch and figured out how to nurse him while he was in the pouch. I didn't want to sit down, partly exposed and fight Levi with the cover. I envisioned many things going wrong in that scenario.

I have to admit that I was proud of myself for figuring it out so quickly. And I am pretty sure he didn't have a clue. And if he did, eh, oh well.

The Office was recorded as we put the kids to bed.

And all is right with the world.


  1. Welcome to never watching commercials again!

  2. our kids go to bed a half hour early on thursday nights :)


  3. Yay for DVRs! It will change TV forever. :) It will also make it so you can never go back. That year in Connecticut when we got rid of Tivo for budgetary reasons, I just didn't watch TV at all because I couldn't stand to go back to watching shows when they were actually on.

  4. You will wonder how you ever lived without it.

  5. DVRs are the best and you will be spoiled. You will want to rewind the un-rewindable and pause things that cannot be paused.

    One time, I was in a drive-thru and couldn't understand the girl on the speaker. I thought: Rewind!

    Enjoy the freedom.

  6. yay for you! you'll love it. watch out my experience, i think i'm watching less tv (no commercials) but in reality i watch SO MUCH MORE...b/c i can record it, and watch it later!

  7. Congratulations! I know you've been wanting one. I am definitely spoiled by ours.
