Ode to the DVR

Tell me if this has ever happened to you...

You're driving around listening to the radio when the DJ says something you don't quite catch so your first instinct is to...

rewind him.

I've become DEPENDANT on our DVR remote. Is there a rehab for that? Since I'm looking I should probably find some help for my Cap'n Crunch addiction as well. (it's true, I'm still eating abnormal amounts of it. I think I crossed the line when I put some in a zip-lock bag and snuck it into "Confessions of a Shop-a-holic" on Friday night.)

And the cherry on the top came when I was talking to someone at church and I didn't hear the last thing she said so what's my first thought?

Where's my remote so I can rewind her. It's official, I'm a DVR-a-holic.

It's ok Katie, we suffer from the same thing over here. My 3 oldest children suffer as well, and no one suffers more than my husband from being too used to and attached to a DVR. In fact when he watches regular TV, he gets mad, really mad, when he can't fast forward through the commercials. The kids don't understand why we can't pause everything and anything, or rewind it, or fast forward it. Pretty sad. They may never know what a commercial is. Maybe that isn't such a bad thing. :)

I find myself trying to fast forward T.V. when I am watching it live. When it doesn't fast forward I have caught myself looking at the remote, taking out the batteries and putting them back in, then tapping it and trying it again. Only then have I realized that I am watching live T.V.

It's a problem.
I now HATE watching live T.V. I'm spoiled.....
and I like it! :)

I seriously cannot remember the last time that I watched anything live on the TV that wasn't Fox News or CNN. I don't think I could, it would just circuit my brain!
