Once a week post a photo of something you are most grateful for. This gives us a chance to reflect on the good things we have learned from or that have made us better in our everyday lives or things we just enjoy! I think everyone needs to be more grateful for what they have now instead of always thinking about what we want! This is one of the things we can do to be more gracious people. It will be like a photo gratitude journal.
It may be hard to believe, but we didn't enter the 'DVR' world until a few months ago. I used to have to figure out what show we wanted to record, if it would actually be on, set the timer on the VCR, and then hope that I remembered to put in a tape so that it would actually record. Then we started downloading them from Mininova. The site was pretty cool. We download most of 'our shows' in a Divx format that we would then burn them onto a disc and watch it on our TV. This worked out pretty well, but the thing that I didn't like about it is the fact that we couldn't really get to watch the show until a day later because it would take a couple of hours to download. Then Shawn decided he wanted to get a new HD TV. That is when Shawn started looking into different options of getting HD reception. After alot of research we ended up getting a Tivo.
I now don't know how we lived with out it. It really rocks! Now that I am nursing...the TV is my friend. It is so nice to have a plethora of shows that I can tune into. Commercials are things of the past, and I don't have to watch another episode of the Doodlebops ever again! I am so thankful to have this wonderful device. It makes things so much easier!
