2011/12 tv shows

This is what I'm watching (or rather DVRing) this year. I usually end up binging when I am working on something like videos for the office, blogging, playing on the computer, surfing the internet, etc...
  • How I met your Mother - DH and I both love this one!
  • The Big Bang Theory - DH and I both love this one!
  • Modern Family
  • Cougar Town
  • Raising Hope
  • Parenthood
  • Ringer - we're a little backlogged on this one
  • 2 Broke Girls - DH likes this one more than I do but it is funny
  • Hawaii Five-O
  • Revenge
  • Pan Am - I figure it will be gone soon. Not liking it as much these days
  • Up all Night - hee hee hee!
  • 30 Rock
  • Hart of Dixie
  • Grimm - really DH's choice and we have a huge backlog!
  • Once upon a Time
  • Suburgatory
  • The Firm - love it but probably because I watched the first six episodes back to back when I had insomnia one night.

The kid is having one of those weeks.

The kid is being a bit of an idiot about bedtime. She is totally testing me and it is really hard not to laugh at her.

The other night she was told to go to bed.

"No, you can't read the last three chapters of your book. It is a school night and I know it will be at least 20 minutes before you are actually in bed because you mess around so much."

So, she announces that she has to go to the bathroom. And starts coming downstairs to get her book.

 "Err, no, you can go the bathroom without the book."

You see, I wasn't born yesterday and I know when she's trying to work the system. I would have done the same at her age. But she is not good at the sneaky. Thank goodness.

She immediately stomped her foot and screamed, "I don't have to go to the bathroom."

No kidding, kid.

We then got to listen to 20 minutes of her lying in bed screaming "nobody cares about me!"

Poor thing.

It finally happened....

The cats brought us a present. On Sunday night at about 2 am, Sera started yapping. I checked her out but everything seemed okay so I went back to bed. She kept making noise so I turned on the light.

"Honey, can you get rid of the dead mouse?"

Hubby got out of bed and disposed of the corpse. He then fed the cats some yummy wet food. We're trying to get them to realize that if they kill mice they get treats.

They seem to be getting the connection. A few nights later the other cat caught a mouse in the kitchen. True, she didn't actually kill it (poor hubby had to do it) but I think the mice are getting the message. They may be too smart to get caught in the traps but the cats do get them.
