The W Family Chronicles


Posted on: February 15, 2008

Lost has been back for 3 weeks now and it is better than ever.  Last night was *so* good!  And Sayid in a tux?  Holy hotness Batman!  There are some beautiful men on that show.  (Though it goes without saying that none of them are as wonderful as D, right? ;))

Anyway…it was just an excellent, excellent episode.  I nearly quit watching after last season.  Then the season finale and the writer’s strike really changed my mind…not only did the finale give us a peek at where everything was going with the flash forwards, but there is NOTHING else on.  Really, the crap TV out there has been killing me.  Thank goodness that’s over and the writer’s have gotten a livable deal.  I hear they didn’t get everything they wanted/asked for but they made huge strides and that’s good.  Now if we can only get some of this crap off the air that’s been pervasive since they ran out of good things to show…

I read that Chuck and Dirty Sexy Money will be back next fall.  I’m happy, but I fear that the long break will cause them to lose momentum and viewers.  It may be an uphill battle for them next year.  And Jericho is back on!  Season premiere was this week and I’m so happy that they’ve been able to come back.  Apparently their viewership was low this week and they’re at risk if they don’t really pick it up, so watch Jericho!  I was able to download a free ep from iTunes, so maybe that will help, too.  You can view all episodes from Season 1 at iTunes, also if you want to catch up.  They’re $1.99 each, but it’s a really good show…definitely puts my problems into perspective on bad days!

Hmmmmmm…what else is going on?  I sound so lame talking about TV like that’s the only interesting thing in life.

Our router is wonky, so I’m hoping this post will go through.  If not, I’ll save it to post later.  Not sure what’s up there.

We did get our federal refund this morning.

We’re having some behavior problems with J.  Really, really bad tantrums.  He had a doozy in a restaurant the other night and I was mortified.  I talked to his teacher today and she said that he doesn’t do that at school so I feel better, but it’s very stressful and embarrassing.  We’re hoping to get him into the local year round elementary school so he’s got good continuity when it comes to his education and maturity.  He does really well at school, but has to relearn his social skills to an extent at the start of each year.  I don’t want it to sound like he’s completely immature, but there are certain things that he doesn’t have to do as much at home and when he is off school for 3 months he tends to forget these things.  He’s a very sensitive child (like I was) so he has a really hard time dealing with his emotions at times.  With a shorter summer break (like 6 weeks, plus 2-3 week intersessions in the fall, winter, and spring) we think he’ll thrive both academically and socially.  Now we just have to pray that he’s picked (it’s a lottery system) for the year round school.  We’re lucky that the school we would be assigned to for the district is fairly good as well…but we really think that the year round concept is ideal for him.

There’s very little else going on at the W house.  Trying to get some things done…am hoping D will consider staining the coffee and end tables we’ve had for years but haven’t ever been out of the box.  I’m really ready to get the living room looking like a livable space.  It’s still full of boxes and other crap that has no other home.  And the old sofa and loveseat are still in there and driving me crazy.  (So hey, if you’re in Sanford and want a sofa and loveseat, plus slipcovers, for $50 leave me a comment!)

W Family Players

D is the dad, the husband, and the breadwinner. All around nice guy and good at pretty much everything he does. It's disgusting, really. But makes him worth keeping around.

M is the mom, the wife, and the hopeless housekeeper. At least the kids' heads haven't fallen off yet. Beyond that, she sucks at the "stay at home" thing. Oh, and she's the blogger.

J is the big boy. Born October 11 2002, he is in kindergarten and loves it. Now 6 years old, and too smart for his own good. Talks a lot but extremely entertaining.

C is the little boy. Born June 26, 2006, he went through a lot in his first year but is doing just fine now. The only blond in the family, so his paternity is routinely questioned by rude strangers.

V is our baby girl. She is brand new and arrived in January 2009. So far everything is going well. We're thrilled to have added the final piece to our family puzzle. And yes, she WILL be the final piece!
