–  Is it really almost December?  We already got our first Christmas card … yikes!  It looks like Christmas money will be spent on oldest boy as he has a few “pits” in his teeth that need to be filled.  Even after insurance we’re still on the hook for about $200.  Mmmph.

–  With our new HDTV, we usually find ourselves in front of the screen for Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy every night starting at 7 pm.  We rarely watched those shows before with our old TV.  The picture from the HD broadcast is amazing.  There’s not that much other stuff broadcast in HD (or any network show for that mater) that I want to see.  I’m playing DVD’s through an upconverter, and while they’re nice to watch it’s not as good as an HD broadcast.  Maybe next spring we’ll decide if we want to spend the money on BluRay or HD-DVD.

–  Over the Thanksgiving break I did get to watch a few football games in HD, and it is sweet.  You see more of the field (and play) and everything is in sharp detail.  I got my early Christmas gift of watching (in HD) the bestest team in the whole world, the Chicago Bears, last Sunday in their thrilling victory over the Broncos at Soldier Field.  Now I better understand why some folks spend hundreds of dollars on the high-def NFL Gameday package.  Someday …

–  It’s our 21st wedding anniversary tomorrow, and even though that makes it drinking legal the strongest beverage we will have is caffeinated iced tea (we usually drink the decaf at home).  While Kristal would like to go to a fancy restaurant, she has agreed to go to a place where we can keep it under $25 for us two.  We are blessed with a friend who has agreed to take care of all three of our angelic savages while we go out.  Now I just have to find a $2 anniversary card somewhere that expresses my true feelings.  Or I can just write it out over a plain card.  That’s me – Mr. Romance.

  1. Happy anniversary!!! Sometimes low-budget can be romantic… at least that’s what the movies say 😉

    It’ll definitely help to be tete-a-tete, or however it’s supposed to be typed. As for the card, I say, go handwritten. Takes more thought and effort. We never do it over here :^P

    Wishing many blessings on your family in the upcoming year!

  2. Thanks!

    I prefer the term “frugal” as opposed to low-budget. We don’t get much of a chance to go out on our own (though that’s been improving lately) as our parents live out of town. Baby-sitters automatically double the cost of a date.

  3. We know the whole babysitter drill. We are in the same boat. Too bad we aren’t close enough for a babysitting co-op!
