They Will Not Take No for an Answer

Remember how earlier this year, we canceled cable in addition to our land line?
Since then, our cable company has been trying its darndest to win back our subscriptions.
When we first moved into our home, we had signed up for their Triple Play package, which included cable, internet, and phone for about $100/month for the first year.
After the first year was up, our bill went up to about $160/month, which we had continued to pay faithfully until we canceled cable and phone.
Now, we are paying about $50/month for just the high-speed internet.
The first few months after…

My Favorite Week of the Summer

…is Discovery Channel’s Shark Week.

But these majestic creatures have always fascinated me. I remember taking out tons of books on sharks from the library when I was a little kid and dreaming of becoming a marine biologist. (Too bad my ineptitude at science — as well as my fear of practically all other fish — stopped that dream short.) I have even made it a goal to go cage diving at least once…

Anticipation & Expectations (Movie of the Year?)

I’ve been battling a slight cold the past couple of days. Like my sister said to me over an email, “Only YOU would get a cold in the middle of this heat wave.” 
Seeing as I’m still not feeling 100%, and that it is a Friday — in addition to being perhaps the hottest and most humid day of the year here in the northeast — let’s forgo the deep topics and stick to lighthearted subjects instead.
Like movies.
Last Sunday, my mother insisted on getting some time with Claire so J and I were able to catch the last…
