Time to Say Goodbye






vs.




As some of you know I've been forcing Kristin to record her favorite shows via VCR this past year. I bought our outdated little friend on Craig's list for $10, and in addition to saving us money, I think having it has been a character building experience for Kristin. She really feels like she's been driving around town in a horse and buggy the last year.

Well, Kristin's repeated pleas along with the Wimbledon Final debacle of '08 have given the Tivo movement traction. Our Tivo should be in a full swing by next Wed.

I'm torn on the future of our VCR. I feel guilty needlessly adding it to the land fill, but what am I supposed to do, list it on Craig's list for $5? I'm definitely not willing to drive it anywhere.

try free cycle and maybe someone will pick it up or save it for your kids rooms (when they come) I wish I had one for when Jeremiah gets sick as we don't allow a TV in his room any other time the Tivo won't work in there...just some thoughts

Kristin thanks for your comments on my blog and yes I did take that photo of Carli I got a new camera for my bday and I have been having lots of fun:) I did paint part of my fence in the backyard red and I think Matt was a little shocked when he got home...but it is all in the name of "art" or something like that HAHA

Keep it! It will be like the reel in a few years and only YOU will have the power to play old family videos and soccer tournament footage.

I listed our VCR on C-list for free, and some lady came by and picked it up (she even wrote me a thank you email). Yep saving the earth one VCR at a time.
