Wow! I feel like it's been ages since I was here and even longer since I had something worth saying. Not that I have anything worth saying, but I've missed you ol' friends. This June we will be without cable or satellite t.v. for one year. It's been a blessing in that so much useless commercialism and oversexed advertisements have been removed from our lives. However, the other day my hubby purchased a digital converter box, ya know, so he could watch the "news". I think he was getting the flippin' itch. The itch to flip. You can't quite flip with Netflix or hulu. So he's got his remote and he can flip through all 5 of the local channels. It makes him happy, unfortunately though, it has also brought the return of commercials. I don't miss them. In fact, we sat down to watch The Celebrity Apprentice last Sunday night. There were 45 minutes of commercials in a two hour show. Ridiculous. We watched it on hulu this week. Hulu does have commercials, but they are no where near the yuck factor of some on what passes for t.v. these days. So it's nice to sit and blog a bit. It's been a long time coming, as the title says. I started nosing around my old blog haunts and realized I missed it. So now that El Bambino is on a nightly schedule of sleep, I should have some time to chat with ya'll every now and then. Well, at least until September when Bambino II comes along :) God Willing. Love ya'll and I look forward to sharing my itsy bitsy life with you once more.
