I may have mentioned this before, but when we moved to Missouri, Dish TV failed to switch us over to local TV stations..so for the last 8 months, we have been continuing to watch Des Moines local channels. I have no problem with this other than my oldest daughter lamenting on the fact that I don’t know what is going on in the area and I’m sure she fears I will be the victim of (insert catastrophe) because I’m unaware. PFFT. He would like to have Kansas City news too because he wants to know about the weather. My thought process includes the belief that he gets his weather from a million different sources on the internet and would not be as bright if he watched Dapper Dan radiating personality in front of a green screen. I usually know what is going on with the friends we have made in the area; but, it isn’t as easy to keep up with friends from back in Iowa. Plus I long to hear the news about someone I have dealt with in my 30 years of dispatching that is finally getting their due…plus…how would I watch Kevin Cooney from KCCI continue to stammer over the news giving me my nightly reason for little noises of disgust. But the political commercials….OMG make it stop…..I’m not willing, yet, to find out if the local politicians here are as angry, nasty and hateful as I already know they are in Iowa!
Kate and Adam were down last weekend. He brought me my new MAC computer and set it up for me…ahem…us. I’m now 100% apple and after 2 days, I realize Kate was right about the ease of having apple products all in sync!!! We all got together Saturday night…Kate, Adam and Jenny to giggle on one couch and Phil, Justin and I to cuss about the beating the Royals were taking by the Giants in the World Series.
We walked over to the Mexican Restaurant for dinner…Jax got a lot of attention from Aunty Katy and Adam.
Justin and Jenny were going to the Chief’s Game on Sunday so we kept Jax overnight…first time he has been away from Daddy and Mama overnight.
Until next time….
I try to just read my news. Too much hysteria on the news anymore.
It is nice that everyone is close enough to get together. The picture of Katy, Adam and Jax is so sweet. I’m guessing Jax must have done well at his overnight. How wonderful that you and your hubby are able to do the grandma and grandpa thing. I know it meant so much to my kids to have g&g there all the time. Jax will really benefit from having you there.
I love the picture of Jax walking with Adam & Katy. Adorable. I only watch the local news if I happen to get up early enough to catch it while I’m drinking my coffee. Otherwise I depend on the internet alerting me.
