Tracy I have thought about killing the cable, but frankly, I'd rather not listen to the bitching from the DH. He's the biggest baby of the lot, sometimes.

Tracy *sigh* I am SO not feeling the holiday spirit. Probably because we got our tree Friday, but nobody has time to decorate it with me. I was gonna do it today but DH & the kids are too busy watching freaking FOOTBALL. Yes, that's a dirty word... *fuming*
