Cable…I just don’t get it.

So while I am at my folks, I am perusing their fancy Dish Network and I have officially decided that I don’t understand cable TV. For one thing…the shows are on a different schedule everyday of the week. No Ace of Cakes for you, it’s Wednesday. My grandma and I watched a show that she loved, and do you think I could tell her when it comes on? No! Every other day at 4 and sometimes 6:30, unless there is a marathon. Marathons! That’s another one. They have all of these marathons, but about every 4 episodes they repeat. So it is really only a marathon of these 4 episodes over and over. Then there is the thing that I have always hated about cable: there are only about 6 channels I like, but to get those 6, I have to get 492 other channels that I will NEVER watch. What a scam.


I am house sitting for my parents this week which also includes helping my grandma while they are gone. Considering how much the woman took care of me, I certainly can spare a few days to hang out with her.

It is interesting being here without my folks around. Since they bought this house after I moved out, it’s not really like my home even though I am very comfortable here. It is so familiar, yet I can’t find stuff. Grr.

Gram is so cute! She is pretty impressed that I can run the washer AND the air conditioning. “Well, bless your heart!” I guess that means that she must think my mom is a genius, because she knows how to use everything in this house.

Aside from the dog getting sick, things are going pretty well, but hey…sometimes dogs barf.
