I am done. I’m moving to Florida.
Can you imagine living in Boston? I mean, why, why, why would you choose to spend your life, or even 45 minutes, in a place that feels like the Siberian Tundra?
Over the past three weeks, my children have missed more school than they’ve attended due to inclement weather, and they have also watched more TV than imaginable.
As busy as my oldest daughter seems to be, we recently calculated the number of hours she has spent watching the TV series Gossip Girls over the past few weeks. I believe it to be about 91. NINETY-ONE hours.
Can you imagine what could be accomplished in that amount of time?
Extreme Home Makeover could do an overhaul of your entire home, demolish and rebuild, in 91 hours. You could fly around the world in a Boeing 747, TWICE, and have enough time leftover to play a round of golf. If she moved quickly, 91 hours might even be enough time for DJ to fully clean up her room. Well, the way it looks today, that might be pushing it.
DJ, Stephanie and Michelle don’t just watch a single show. No, all three log-on to Netflix and watch television series. Like from show 1 to show 200 – or more! Michelle is addicted to Gilmore Girls. Both of her sisters have completed that epic and have moved on to others.
They are now asking me to upgrade our Netflix account so that more people in the family can watch different shows at one time.
Guess what? That ain’t happening.
Well, unless all four of us get trapped in this house for another 24 hour period. Come to think of it, Netflix may be the only reason someone in this foursome is not dead yet.
