So one of my favorite things these days is the DVR. I spend a lot of time sitting on the couch nursing Anthony. While I love snuggling my son, I hate actually feeding him. It's uncomfortable for me, so I destract myself with the TV. Anyway, the point of this post is not that my boobs hurt when I feed my kid. The point is, I have been watching a lot of random TV the last four months. Some of my favorites now are American Idol (so glad on which guys went home, I didn't think either one was very good compared to the rest)Torchwood (on BBC America, spinoff from Doctor Who) anything on the History channel, HGTV, or Discovery. The show New Amsterdam looks like it might actually be good too. Now besides all the dramas and educational shows, I have a mild obsession for bad reality TV. My latest favorite in this realm is Celebrity Rehab with Doctor Drew. Basically it's a bunch of semi famous people who are in a drug and alcohol rehab center. It's pretty entertaining when you want mindless TV. I think there is a new episode waiting for me when Anthony needs to eat again.

The funny thing is if Jeff would agree, I'd get rid of the cable since it's a lot of money, but he won't, so I'm gonna use it. Once Anthony isn't eating so often though, I am really going to try and convince him to shut it off. Maybe even just for the summer. There are so many things we should be doing around here besides watching a ton of TV. And Amelia would watch it all day long too if we let her, which really bugs me. So now she only gets TV before 8 AM and then one show before bed. Unless Daddy's home then all bets are off. But I'm trying to stick to it.

Okay so this totally turned into a rambling about TV and why it's great and then it's evils. Not what I meant to post but oh well. :-)
