Right Away Mr. Draper
I'm sure you thought we were going quite puritanical on you what with the cutting of cable and the uber-introspection from last week. I hope you know us well enough to know that couldn't be farther from the truth. We've been talking about cutting the cord for a while, but eventually the conversation would always roll around to, "what about football season?" and we'd chicken out. This time we decided to go for it and figure football season out in September. In the meantime we're saving $65 month, which is enough to keep all the children in clean diapers for 30 days. Not puritans by any stretch of imagination, just trying to save money on something that we really didn't utilize much of in the first place.
A few days after kissing U-verse good-bye, we signed up for a free month long trial of Netflix streaming video service. For $7.99 I'll have access to all the Curious George and Backyardigans episodes two toddlers could ever dream of watching. Oh and also 5 back seasons of Mad Men. Yes please.
B Daddy and I have been enjoying the escapades of Don Draper pretty much every evening for the last week. It's our coping mechanism of choice after a long day with the kids or the office and it's even cheaper than 2 Buck Chuck. I love having 60 episodes at my fingertips. Don't spoil my fun by telling me any current season details whatsoever.
Here are a few blog posts I've considered and done nothing about in the last week. If I get some motivation and find some words I may be back to bother you again tomorrow...or Friday...or possibly next week sometime. Til then!

Oh the things blogland has been missing in my absence.
