Isn't this picture weird? My 4-year old picked out a package of plastic animals at the dollar store recently. It had a strange assortment including: kangaroos, deer, giraffe, goats, rhinos & this green polka-dotted moose. Very odd. And yet....awesome. It makes me want to paint all her other animals wild & wacky colors. She might just wake up one morning & find her safari/barnyard friends all punked out.
I failed to mention, 3 weeks ago, that my fam & I had our TV turned off. Not just turned off, but we don't have cable anymore. It was a random, spur of the moment decision between Mr. WhiMSy love & I. We're not anti-TV, but we thought we'd give it a try until the first of the new year.....
I cheat sometimes though. I turn on the tv & "watch" one of the two lonely remaining channels that my antennae can get----The Game Show Network or Comedy Central. Pathetic, I know. But, I like having the background noise when I'm cleaning (which I rarely do) or when I'm crafting, blogging, packing orders, etc.
The instant the cable guy took our digital cable box & left, we panicked! The girls & I started running around the house screaming, waving our hands in the air, jumping on the couches, our faces full of woeful expression. What were we to do? Our longtime companion, Mr. TV Cable Box, had been kidnapped. And Mr. Cable Box's friend, 'The TV', was pretty much dead & useless.
So now we'll do anything to pass the time, such as: read together, bake together, play games, have tickle wars, tell dorky stories, craft much MUCH more, visit & chat, do puzzles, set up dolly tea parties, have backyard adventures, cuddle, sing......Hmmm. Imagine that.
